Light at the Edge of Darkness Scavenger Hunt

Congratulations Cheryl! please send an email to admin@lostgenreguild.com with your mailing address so we can get your prize to you! Congratulations also to Caprice! All that time did pay off!

Thank you very much to all who participated in the launch of our anthology of Biblical Speculative Fiction: Light at the Edge of Darkness. Special thanks, of course, to the blog owners for their efforts and enthusiam . . . to author and cheerleader extraordinaire Daniel I Weaver for all the background work: the concept of the blog tour was his idea and the anthology project itself was Daniel's baby!

Now, should you want to purchase a copy of Light, you can go to one of the on-line bookstores or to The Writers' Café Press where you can read about a special deal for listeners of Adam Graham's Readers Theatre.

You can also help us out by stopping by your favourite bookstore and asking them to order in Light at the Edge of Darkness.

Congratulation Murray, please email your mailing address to admin@lostgenreguild.com

And, here are today's Scavenger Hunt clues:

Submit your answers to the clues to admin@lostgenreguild.com . Remember you can submit the answers daily or all at once . . . as long as they arrive in the emailbox on or before noon (eastern) Friday June 8.

Winner of the Grand Prize will be announced Friday evening here on the Lost Genre Guild Blog.

While you are visiting us here at the LGG blog, don't forget to sign-up to receive the latest posts in your InBox -- just type in your email address in the FeedBlitz box in the side bar.

Also, take a break and listen to Adam Graham's Readers' Theatre Podcast (found on the side bar). May I recommend the most recent work: "Chairman." Due to technical difficulties, Adam had to redo the original version and read all the parts on his own: the result is very impressive and well worth the short listen.

N.B. If the podcast image does not appear when you first reach this page, try back a few minutes later. It is there, really! but it also likes to disappear every so often to take a much needed rest.

Join Adam Graham and friends for the next story in Light at the Edge of Darkness: "Guilty" on Sunday June 24, 2007 at http://www.talkshoe.com , scroll down the program list, and either listen live or download the talkshoe program (easy and quick) to listen and participate in the Q&A at the end of the program.

Chairman: Podcast

What if computer scientists succeeded at the Mary Shelley Frankenstein task, and produced a true artificial intelligence? What if their AI had only been allowed to logically consider its place in the Universe according to the material perspective. That's the premise of Frank Creed's Chairman. We attempted a normal podcast, but egads! The recording ended up a disaster, so I pulled a rabbit out of my hat and came up with a good solo reading of the story!

Click here or in the sidebar to listen. You can also add future editions of this podcast to your Itunes so you don't miss a thing. Don't forget to purchase the book that has all these stories in them.
