My guest, Max Hawthorne, has assembled an amazing range of never-before-seen evidence based on serious scientific investigations of “the mysteries […]

 Guest Page Fast links to Items:  Richard  –  Arlen Fast links to Bios:  Arlen My guest tonight, award-winning illustrator, writer and comic book historian, Arlen Schumer, has focused much of his attention on the “Silver Age” …. “The Silver Age of Comics (circa 1956-70) not only birthed a new generation of superheroes, but for the first time in comic book publication … black superheroes! “The decade of the 1960s was one of the most turbulent in American — and world — history, sparking revolutions of all kinds in the political, socio-economic, cultural and artistic spheres. In the field of comic books, industry giant DC Comics rebooted its old superheroes from the 1940’s ‘Golden Age’ into newer, sleeker, streamlined versions, while confronting its first serious competition in an upstart company called ‘Marvel.’ “The legendary white artist/storyteller behind the newfound success of Marvel, Jack Kirby, suddenly decided to create the first black […]

But what if the United States’ breakneck atomic bomb development, followed by the creation of its even more devastating “fusion” follow-on, the dreaded “super hydrogen-device,” had, as a quiet side-effect, also revealed a terrifying planetary secret?: That, just decades in the future — regardless of the then uncertain outcome of WWII — civilization itself would be totally destroyed … not by “global thermonuclear war” — but, by a once-in-a-million-year, gargantuan thermonuclear explosion– On the Sun?! Fortunately, the preceding scenario is total fiction — from the fertile mind and technical imagination of my guest tonight, award-winning “hard” science-fiction writer, Robert Sawyer. […]

People think it was a horror show—and while it had some of the most horri0fic shock endings ever filmed for TV or film, it was more than just horror. It was more than a “fantasy” series, too because its was grounded in a reality for more real and true for its day—and ours. “In truth, The Twilight Zone was true television art—because it satisfies the definition of art, in that is was of its time, ahead of its time, and timeless. Look at how its episodes […]
