This week, 12 Monkeys co-creator and co-executive producer Travis Fickett chats with Summer about the 5-year journey to bring the series to production with Syfy, about being a fan of a number of other genre shows (including hopes that Constantine can join 12 Monkeys on Friday nights for both shows’ Season 2’s next year), and more.
This week, Michael A. Stackpole joins Summer, Noah and Daren to talk about the International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Festival, at the Scottsdale 101 Theaters March 26-April 2, running along with the Phoenix Film Festival.
Mike is the program director for the Scifi track, and he tells us about the many scifi short films he watched to curate the Shorts A and Shorts B track that viewers will be able to watch this year. He also talks about the features selections, and a couple that really wowed him.
On this special Slice of SciFi episode, Summer, Tim Callender and Jill Heller review and discuss The Mourning, a supernatural thriller about the sudden return home of a man who 20 years earlier had been declared MIA and presumed killed during Desert Storm.
Warning: There are plenty of spoilers included in this discussion.
Our reactions to the movie were mixed and varied wildly, much of it arising from confusion about ambiguities in the story that might have been introduced to heighten the mystery but only managed to confuse the story points instead.
This week on Slice of SciFi, Summer chats with some of the creative team behind The Mourning, a supernatural thriller about the sudden return home of a man who was declared MIA and presumed killed during Desert Storm, and the mystery surrounding where he’s been for 20 years and why he hasn’t aged a day since then.
Director and co-writer Marc Clebanoff, co-writer and lead actor Michael Walton, Dominique Swain and Brooke Lewis talk about how the story came about, and much more.
This week, Kevin Bachelder (Tuning Into Scifi Television) and Sean From Edwards (Flight Test Land) join Summer to discuss the spring genre television picks. Talk ranges from the season finales, spring premieres, and more.

This week, Tim and Jill discuss “Proxima” by Stephen Baxter, the first novel in a new space opera epic by Stephen Baxter.
There is a spoiler-free overview and mini-review of the book at the top of the discussion, followed by a long detailed spoiler-filled examination and breakdown of the story, so pay attention to the spoiler warnings we mention before we cross that bridge, if you haven’t read the book yet and don’t want to be spoiled.
And for the record, Tim slides in his first Lensman mention less than 2 minutes in (you’re welcome, Gary!)
