Alex discusses why the loss of celebrities we've never met like David Bowie, Prince, Garry Shandling and even Mr. Spock himself, Leonard Nimoy, can feel like a death in the family.

A favorite guest returns!

Acclaimed author Jason McIntyre reads from his #1 Kindle Suspense novella THE NIGHT WALK MEN. It's creepy good. Jason and Alex also discuss the "world" of the MEN and some of his inspirations.

Need more reasons to listen? Here's a good one:

"I'm grateful that the emergence of ebooks has given new life to short fiction, and I'm happy that I discovered this author. Jason McIntyre has a wonderful way of painting worlds with words. Geez, it's like the guy is channeling Rod Serling while Ray Bradbury whispers in his ear."

Jason is also author of the bestsellers ON THE GATHERING STORM and SHED, the multi-layered literary suspense THALO BLUE and his latest: ZED. His short fiction has appeared in numerous magazines and won several awards.

His debut novel ON THE GATHERING STORM is cited by readers as an 'uncomfortably thrilling' read and earned McIntyre a spot in the Top 20 Debut Authors for the Goodreads Choice Awards.

Are you as sick of the cold weather as Alex? Craving sun, sand, a refreshing cocktail with a shot of mystery? Then you need a Boat Drink.

Perhaps the overall fan favorite character in the John Pilate Mysteries (besides John himself) is Taters Malley, captain of the fishing charter boat TenFortyEZ.

In Boat Drinks, a short story from Pilate's 7, it's fun to see Taters in his own element--guiding the TenFortyEZ straight into mischief in the waters off Key West. 

So, fix yourself a boat drink, put on your flip flops and get set to enjoy Alex's hammy reading of one of his favorite stories.

If you enjoy this story and want more, you can pick up the Pilate's 7 ebook from all the usual suspects, including AmazonBarnes and NobleiBooks, andSmashwords

Alex thinks all this cheery spring weather deserves some gloom. Therefore, a reading from the horror short story "A Debt of Fire" is our big feature this week.
