DEFRAGMENTING JASON WERBELOFF, AUTHOR: PART TWO

interview by Michael McCarthy On Monday we published part one of our two-part interview with Jason Werbeloff, one of the most exciting sci-fi authors to emerge during recent years.  His series Defragmenting Daniel had me binge reading, immediately going from one book to the next, and I’m normally a slow reader.  So, that...

DEFRAGMENTING JASON WERBELOFF, AUTHOR: PART ONE

interview by Michael McCarthy I’m what you could call a book-aholic.  I’m addicted to books.  I’m so glad that Kindles came along when they did because I own so many hardcover books that I’ve long stopped counting.  I’ve filled over five bookcases with them.  Point being, I’ve literally run out of room.  So,...

NEW LIFE FOR QUIET RIOT: AN INTERVIEW WITH FRANKIE BANALI

interview by Michael McCarthy So far, the first and only time I’ve seen Quiet Riot live was in ’93 or ’94 when they were promoting the album Terrified, a record I’d still recommend to fans of the band’s early albums. The show was at an underground club – literally, it was a small...

MYSTERY SKULLS: AN INTERVIEW WITH LUIS DUBUC

interview by Michael McCarthy Mystery Skulls, otherwise known as Luis Debuc, was something of a mystery to me prior to reading the press release for his new album, One of Us. All I knew was that I loved the Mystery Skulls debut album, Forever. You see, I had no idea if Mystery Skulls...

DEFYING GRAVITY WITH ERIC MARTIN OF MR. BIG

interview by Michael McCarthy As you may recall, I wrote a concert review of a Mr. Big show I caught at Mohegan Sun Casino a few weeks back. Finally getting to see them live after being a fan since 1989 was a dream come true. I’d seen almost every heavy metal band back...
