When you consume as much Doctor Who as we at the Oncoming Storm do, you know that you’re going to have some ups and downs. Doctor Who, of course, is one of the greatest ideas ever, and the stories involved can go anywhere and do anything, so even in the… lesser stories there are things to be enjoyed and appreciated. As so many people say, even bad Doctor Who is better than most things you could watch.
And then there’s The Creed of the Kromen.
After all of the intense feelings of mashing themselves together to form a super being, The Oncoming Storm hosts have finally separated and entered the next zone. This zone is, of course, episode 126 where Josh and Rachel are joined by guest Jeff Polier to discuss The Creed of the Kromen by Philip Martin. Following all of the strangeness of the last adventure, this one has the Doctor and Charley getting back to business fighting off alien monster invaders. But does that mean it’s any good? Your hosts dig in to the Alpha Sphere to find out, and along the way, we all meet a new friend! The Oncoming Storm… this time we’ve got the Mentors back doing what they… what? We don’t? They’re Kromen? Are you sure???
Hey there kiddies, it’s that time of year again – the premiere Doctor Who convention in Central Florida, Time Lord Fest 2014 is about to take place Sunday October 19th in Tampa. Rita and JC are all over it with wall to wall coverage including interviews with Con Organizer Ken Spivey, Doctor Who Wholesale Strategy writer, actor and director John Reid Adams and KSB band member Brooke Pulin. While going TLF mad, we still sneak in our thoughts on the premiere of the Walking Dead and Doctor Who episode Mummy on the Orient Express. All this and much more on Transmissions From Atlantis!

SLOUCHING TOWARDS CAMULODUNUM
(And Other Stories)
By Micah S. Harris
Mino Profit Press
Micah Harris is one of the finest adventure fantasy writers working today. So we were thrilled when this little book popped up in the mail a few weeks ago. It contains three new tales of the fantastic by Mr. Harris and each of them is a well-crafted gem. One has to wonder, what with the lack of fiction magazines today, if any of these would have ever seen the light of day had it not been for the ease of self-publishing. We are daily grateful we live in such an age when writers of this talent can follow this path and effectively make their efforts available we eager readers.

What makes a scary movie scary? Is it the threat of violence and death? That’s pretty scary, but the scariest movies for me are the ones that involve more than just death. Everyone’s going to die; I’m more scared by becoming something I don’t want to be. I think this is a fear common to real life, too. What are the diseases and health problems people fear most? Usually the ones that change who we are: Alzheimer’s, ALS, brain injury. This fear is reflected in our literary history; Frankenstein’s monster, Dracula, they used to be human. More modern stories involve robotics and cyborgs, or being changed into another species, mutants, etc. Continue reading “Eternity versus Chocolate: concerning vampires” »
