SFP-Now Chats to Ada Hoffman about her latest book The Fallen

Ep. 121

After a month away. We're back and we get the ball rolling with an epic interview with Science Fiction novelist Ada Hoffman.


During this chat. The writer gives us the lowdown on how she got into writing and her personal journey to becoming a published Science Fiction writer. Her debut novel 'The Outside' wowed readers when it was released back in 2018 and it looks very much like that book's sequel The Fallen is going to do very much the same.


Ada talks us through some of the characters and storylines of the book to give those that haven't checked the books out yet a small taste of what they can expect. She also talks about how her decision to make her main character an Autistic scientist surprised her in a few ways and chats a little bit about her creative process as a writer saying that she usually has the beginning, middle, and end of her books figured out in advance of writing the story.


Being that a few of us here at SciFiPulse Radio is on the Autism Spectrum we also asked Ada her thoughts on representation in the publishing industry as well as representation in film and television. And Ada also talked about some of the ways in which she tries to encourage writers with autism by reviewing their stories on her website.


So to hear all of what was said. Tune in for this epic new episode of SciFiPulse Radio.

SFP-NOW Chats Harryhausen, Flash Gordon & Escape From New York with Writer John Walsh

Ep. 119
Welcome to a very special edition of SFP-NOW on SciFi-Pulse Radio. In this episode, we are joined by special guest John Walsh who is a huge fan of science fiction and fantasy. An acclaimed filmmaker and writer as well as a Trustee of the Ray Harryhausen Foundation, which preserves and displays the work of the legendary special effects artist and filmmaker. In the episode. John takes us through his early career and how he found friendship with the late filmmaker who created memorable monsters such as Medusa and the Kraken from the original 'Clash of The Titans' and many more. He also talks in-depth about many of the things that can be found in his book 'Harryhausen: The Lost Movies', which I highly recommend to fans of genre film and television. As it gives insight into the many things that Ray Harryhausen would have liked to do. But never got to due to budgetary reasons. John also discusses the incredible journey that he went on. When putting together his Flash Gordon book 'Flash Gordon: The Official Story of the Film'. Which is an incredible story to listen to and well worth the time in the telling. In short. When John wrote the book and it came time to look for images from the film. He learned at the last minute that the studio didn't save anything. So he had to source images and production stills from the fan community and some of the people that worked behind the scenes on the film. Added to all of this great stuff. John also previews his new book, which is due out in September, which is called 'Escape From New York: The Official Story of the Film'. So if you enjoy retro movies and appreciate classic genre entertainment.
