AISFP 294 — Cary Elwes, Hugo Hangover

Cary Elwes of The Princess Bride gives a behind-the-scenes look at the movie as well as other movies in his career during this Planet Comicon special. We also chat about the week that was certainly Hugo Awards nomination bar fight and hangover.

SS LogoXL_365This episode is brought to you by the Stone Soldiers series from C.E. Martin.

The Stone Soldiers are America’s secret weapon against the forces of darkness. A small detachment of psychics, supernatural soldiers and men turned to living stone, they respond to threats conventional forces are not prepared to face. Battling myths, monsters and magic around the world, the men and women of Detachment 1039 stand ready to do whatever it takes to stop evil in its tracks.

Book 1 in the series, Mythical, is currently free on Kindle, Nook and iTunes:

Colonel Mark Kenslir is the last of the Cold War supersoldiers–and he’s just come back from the dead. Sent to Arizona to hunt a heart-devouring shapeshifter, Colonel Kenslir and his team of supernatural-smashing soldiers thought it was just another mission. But instead of stopping the monster’s murderous rampage, the Colonel and his team became the latest victims in a trail of carnage blazed across the Southwest.

The Stone Soldiers series is available in print and on Kindle, Nook, iTunes, Kobo and!

Brent was bummed to miss this annual, ever-growing event that is local to him in Kansas City, Mo., but created a street team to help provide coverage. In this episode, you’ll hear from Cary Elwes of The Princess Bride fame.

f you’re not familiar with Planet Comicon,  it’s one of the Midwest’s largest comic book and pop culture events. Later this year or early next, we”ll plan to have one of the event organizers on the show to provide a complete, behind-the-scenes view of the con.

Unfortunately … the last week has been far from “as you wish …

Before the Cary Elwes interview, Kristi and I have a healthy conversation about the Hugo Awards observations, education and verbal attacks that have taken place over the last week. Mike Glyer is doing quite the yeoman’s work of chronicling many of the blog posts on the subject at File 770.

We also share a bit of publishing news — Harper Collins and Amazon — and our new segment “Suds & Science” where we will feature the environmental documentary Planetary.
