Galley Table

Welcome back, for more from the Balticon 47 Wrap up! This week we are diving right into the action with episode 92 of Galley Table recorded live at Balticon on Sunday at 1 PM. If you’re a regular Galley Table listener, you’ve already heard this episode. If not, you may want to check out Galley Table for more fun, geeky discussion of writing, publishing and other geeky stuff.

In part 1, I talked about some of the wonderful people, both old friends and new friends, who make Balticon such an amazing event for me. In part 2, I went over a couple of the highlights of the first half of the weekend. Now, in Part 3, we’re going to look at the rest of the weekend.

It’s that time of year again, folks. Balticon 47 is almost upon us. And that means that it is time for me to share this year’s Balticon schedule. Now, if you remember my post from last year, you’ll remember that I had a really packed schedule last year. Well, things are looking pretty busy again this year. I don’t think it is quite as bad as last year, but it still looks like a very busy weekend is in store for me.

#FlashbackFriday is upon us again! This week The Wayback Machine is taking us back to May 19th, 2011 and episode 37 of Galley Table. It is very appropriate that we’re looking back two years ago as the Galley Table crew gathers to talk about our plans for Balticon, just as we’re preparing for Balticon again this year. This is an all crew episode, so no guests this time, but we are name dropping like crazy! Hopefully this will help whet your appetite for this year’s Balticon.

Once again, it is #FlashbackFriday, and time for another journey with the Wayback Machine. Today we’ve got audio from May 15th, 2011. To wit, episode 35 of Galley Table, featuring guests JR Murdock and Michell Plested. You see, writers are a superstitious and cowardly lot, and they construct various rituals and superstitions to fend off bad writing mojo, or to get themselves into the mood for writing. In this episode, we ask the panel what their rituals are, and how they feel these traditions have effected their writing.

Good morning! It’s time to continue our Balticon 46 wrap up with a new episode. This time we’ve got the Balticon 46 episode of Galley Table, Live! This is a bit of a small panel, with just regular Galley Table members, Scott Roche, Laura Nicole, and myself on the panel.

In this episode, we talk about… Science Fiction Conventions, best and worst experiences.

Time once again for something from the Wayback Machine. I’m actually going to try to make this a regular #FlashbackFriday event. We’ll just have to see how successful I am at keeping things scheduled.

Anywho, This Friday we are turning the clock back to May 5, 2011 to revisit an all crew episode of The Galley Table. In episode thirty-five, we’re talking about gods and their place in your story. We talk about some of our favorite deific figures in stories and how they are effectively, and non-effectively used. No matter your personal faith, we still feel that there is a place for god-like figures in literature.

I haven’t fired up the Wayback Machine in a while, and the backlog of episodes just keeps building up. Time to do something about that. So here we have another episode from podcasting’s past. Today’s trip takes up to May 2nd, 2001, and Episode 34 of  Galley Table. This episode didn’t have a guest, but was just the regular Galley Table crew talking about pushing beyond your boundaries and how that can affect your writing.

January is a time to look forward to the rest of the year. One of the things we look forward to each year, is Balticon! For those of you who aren’t familiar, Balticon is the Maryland Regional Science Fiction Convention put on each year by the Baltimore Science Fiction Society, or BSFS. Balticon is held each year on Memorial Day weekend in Hunt Valley, Maryland. So, in January, we start making plans…

Hey, folks.

Remember back when I would pretend that I had this time machine, and every so often, I’d post on here about cranking it up and going back to visiting some point in the past and I’d play the audio from a podcast I did online and pull out a bunch of really funny lines from the show?

Remember that? Let’s do that again!
