As a great new feature to enhance our book series, FUTURES PAST is developing a podcast with the aim of interviewing authors, historians, artists and other experts in the field of science fiction.  Currently, we are just getting started - testing various equipment and software, contacting potential interview subjects and putting things in place for what should be an informative and fun program.  Our tentative launch date is set for May 2022, so check back here in a couple of months to see how things are progressing.  Updates will be posted as they develop.

I have finally put all the pieces in place for a monthly podcast.  It will consist of interviews with pivotal people who have had or continue to have a significant presence in either creating sf or chronicling it.  My first guest will be John L. Coker III.  He is the president of FIRST FANDOM, an organization which was started in 1959 to bring together the fans of the Golden Age of SF. Membership was originally limited to those fans who were active before 1938.  Find out what John and FIRST FANDOM have been doing to keep classic sf alive for today’s fans.  Tune in for some nostalgia, trivia, stories and a laugh of two as we explore the history of the genre we love so much.   Check back here for updates on future guests, topics, and a few surprises... is owned and maintained by THE WRITE ANSWER, LLC.  FUTURES PAST is a Registered Trademark of Jim Emerson and THE WRITE ANSWER, LLC.  Any questions, comments, or other concerns can be directed to the publisher at:
