Promo for The Prometheus Saga anthology

Bria Burton, a great friend of the show, has a story published in this new and interesting anthology The Prometheus Saga.

Bria's Story is titled "On Both Sides", and it is a genuine coincidence that is goes along with this month's Journey Into... History.  The premise: When a mysterious woman vanishes during the American Revolution, young Robby Freeman searches for answers from a cryptic sharpshooter who deserted Washington’s Continental Army.

I haven't read any of the stories yet since the book launch is today, but I plan to.  Bria asked me to help her out with the audio for a book trailer.  It was a lot of fun to work with her on that.  So I thought I would share it with the rest of you.

Mind Webs was a 1970's series out of WHA Radio in Wisconsin that featured weekly semi-dramatized readings of science fiction short stories performed by Michael Hansen. It aired stroies by some of the genre's best writers like Norman Spinrad, Arthur C. Clarke, Gordon R. Dickson, and Ray  Bradbury. Many of the readings were enhanced by music, periodic sound cues, and the occasional character voice, however they are not completely dramatized.
