Author William Federer Describes the Peace of Augsburg 1955
"Show and we're talking about how the pilgrims came to be the pilgrims, the book is titled the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it, the prequel to America's freedom of the author, William Federer on the line. Bill, you were talking about really, it's just amazing to me. If you don't mind backtracking a little bit, because there's so many things unfolding at the same time. So let me put the needle back on the record. Right. Well, the idea is that Muslims are invading Europe surrounding Vienna, 1529. The reformation started in 1517 and now we got this internal and external disruption of Europe. The older Roman Emperor, Charles V of Spain, he has the biggest empire on Planet Earth. I mean, the Philippines are named after his son, king Philip of Spain. And he has all the new world. He's taken the gold from the new world to fit on his navy to keep the Muslims from taking over the Mediterranean. Anyway, he's faced with his double dilemma, reformation out inside and based on the outside. He actually strikes a deal with the protestants. It's called a piece of Augsburg of 1555. I speak a little German and that's a fun number. It's own 1400 proven folks. 55. That's the first treaty ever to recognize protestants and in this treaty is a little Latin phrase that made a big difference. It's cool ratio to religio, which means whose is The Rain? Is a religion? So in other words, look Protestant king, believe it ever you want in your kingdom. Let's just work together against these Muslims who are invading Europe because they sort of want to kill us all. Well, this started a domino effect in the next century where different kings fully different things. And Sweden and Germany were Lutheran Switzerland Calvin and Scotland Presbyterian England was Anglican Holland Dutch reform. And of course, Italy, Spain, France, Austria, remained
Author William Federer Describes 'The Treacherous World of the 16th Century'
"William Federer has written a book called the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it which its effectively the prequel to America's freedom, William Federer, welcome to the program. Great to be with you. Hey, I mean, the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it. Most of us know so little about the 16th century. We don't think of it as treacherous or non treacherous. What are we talking about here? What is that what is it that got you to write this book? You've written so many books on history. It's a joy to talk to you on any historical subject. But I love it when you come out with a book like this, because you really have done your homework and we get to benefit. What is it that why do you call it the prequel to America's freedom? What did they leave? Well, Europe was ruled by kings and it was being invaded by the sultan of Turkey. The Ottoman sultan Suleiman the Magnificent he was surrounding Vienna. So backdrop, the Muslims conquered all of North Africa, which used to be Christian. There were 250 Catholic diocese along North Africa. Muslims invaded Spain and held it for 700 years and they were just driven out in 1492. So just a couple of years earlier, the Muslims had controlled Egypt for 600 years. It had been founded by the Christian face Mark that wrote the gospel of Matthew Mark Luke and John. And then Siri was completely Christian for 6 centuries of angiotensin by the apostle Paul until Khalid Omar conquers it. And the Turks convert to Islam and they invaded to what is today Turkey and all 7 churches mentioned in the book of revelation are wiped out and then they finally cross the Bosporus and conquer Constantinople in 1453 and then finally they're invading Europe and surrounding Vienna Austria the year 1529. So here we have an Islamic invasion into Europe and just a couple of years earlier the reformation started 1517 with Martin Luther. And so Europe has an inside outside chaos going on and the Holy Roman Emperor is the king of Spain. Charles V now the title Holy Roman Emperor means he's sort of responsible for defending Christendom. And so here he is wanting to defend against the Islamic invasion. At the same time, he is inherited all the new world, right? Columbus discovered it for Ferdinand Isabella. And so he's taking the gold from the new world to fit out his navy to keep the Muslims from taking over the Mediterranean

Eric Recalls His Early Days as an Advertising Copywriter... For Ex-Lax
"Oh, here we are at the Babylonian interview show and we have a very special guest mister Eric metaxas in person at the Babylon B not literally in person, but yeah. Not little. I think he is literally in person, isn't it? Well, I guess technically, that would be true. Or off to goods. Do you want to be a little about the word literally? Yeah. Have you noticed people English major writer? So when people miss speak and say, literally, it's like, you know, we literally blew up, you know? It's like, no, that's the whole point. You didn't literally blow up. You blew up. The numbers blew up, but that's not literally, but no, I actually, I got to confess, I am literally here. Well, speaking of literally blowing up. Great transition books about smart Luther Dietrich bonhoeffer, William wilberforce, and you also wrote a commercial for X lax. Can you tell us about that commercial? I did write it right here. Actually, this is not insignificant. In a way. It is totally true that during the worst periods of my life had to take a job as a copywriter for gray advertising. So if you think advertising is cool, like anybody in the advertising business who thinks it's kind of cool. They think yes, but if you sell out, you go to gray advertising. Like they do the stuff that no one else will do. Like X lax. And so I was working with an ad director who was so evil seeming to me that I asked if I could be switched and I said, yeah, well, three years to Mark Schwartz, he does, you know, pharmaceutical. He was a really cool guy. And my first assignment was ex lax, and the ex lax thing, it's so weird because some commercials like it's so they kind of write themselves like they tell you what they want and they just need someone physically to be there and to say like, okay, I wrote this. But so they had this whole thing, you know, somebody comes home with a bag of groceries a mom. You see you got your ex lax, you know, blah, blah, blah. So I wrote that. But the point is, I do they ask their parents, say, I see you got your excellent. It was certainly no. When I was 6. I remember. So you got your exact. But here's the key to the whole thing. The key to the whole thing is that at that time, X lax was either being sued or something because it was such a powerful laxative. Let me say that again. It was such a devastatingly powerful laxative that is sometimes gave people unbelievable cramps and this and that. So they were moving over to an herbal formula, which of course couldn't be nearly as effective, right? So the commercial that I did for X lax was the last actual X lax commercial. After that, they switched over and it became X lax and quotes because the brand. So for 90 years they had this formula soil I wrote the last X lax commercial.

Sir William Blackstone's Case for Self-Defense Holds True Nearly 300 Years Later
"William Blackstone from 1723 to 1780 said the following. Self defense is justly called the primary law of nature. So it is not neither can it be, in fact, ever taken away by the laws of society. William Blackstone, the architect of the western justice system. Said that self defense is justly called the primary law of nature. Think about the significance of what he's saying there. But if you're not able to defend yourself against an aggressor, then you are violating at the core, the social contract of your existence in the laws of nature and nature's God. Now Blackstone meant this both for people like Kyle rittenhouse and Brett Kavanaugh. You see black stone was not just saying that you should be able to defend yourself against the child rapist who wants to kill you, like Kyle rittenhouse, but also against people like Christine balls a Ford, who decide to come out and say, you know. I think you did something bad to me. And Brett Kavanaugh's should be able to say, that's not true. Blackstone understood that an aggressor going after an innocent that the innocent has a moral and biblical obligation to defend oneself. And that's really what's on trial here, isn't it? It's not just that Kyle rittenhouse, according to the activist media, should not have been able to defend himself in the street. It's not that just Kyle rittenhouse should not be able to defend himself against rosenbaum or whatever that freakazoid is. No, no, no. It's that Kyle rittenhouse should not even be able to defend himself in court.
Dr. William Lile: 'A Patient Is a Person, No Matter How Small'
"I'm talking to doctor William Lyle. He's the head of pro life, Doc dot org. You are just sharing the details of, I mean, it's fascinating to learn about this for me to learn about this. So this idea that progesterone does two things. You said it's helping feed the baby and it's helping prevent contractions so that the baby doesn't leave the mother's womb too early. So you said that if somebody takes this abortion pill, are you four 86? After that, at some point, they take another pill to induce contractions so that the baby which has ostensibly been killed can now be expelled. Is the baby always dead by the point of taking the second pill? No, because we know that if people just take that medication, the side attack, it will cause contractions. And they can abort without the baby actually being dead. And the baby is very tiny, but the baby is still creating the image of God and had a heartbeat. When they take that second medication, and it causes the contractions, we really can not reverse that effect. So everything that's good about the pregnancy as far as supporting it is because of progesterone. When a medication is taken that lowers the level of progesterone, that's all the bad stuff happens. But the other reason that this is not healthcare is that the number one pregnancy related killer of pregnant women in the first trimester of pregnancy is still a ruptured ectopic or tubal pregnancy. How do you know when a woman is pregnant if the pregnancy is in the uterus or if it's maybe in the tube? The only way is with an ultrasound. When a federal judge says, you know what? Going to the abortion clinic is an undue burden. Women are being denied an ultrasound. They don't know where the pregnancy is. One in a hundred pregnancies are going to be an ectopic a tubal pregnancy. So if a woman takes the abortion pill and she gets it mail order and she never had an ultrasound, she is told, she's going to have bleeding, cramping, and pain. And that's going to be a boarding the baby. As opposed to if it happens to me that one in a hundred words and ectopic or tubal pregnancy, those symptoms are so different, they are bleeding cramping and pain. How is a woman supposed to know the difference between the bleeding cramping and pain of a tubal pregnancy or the bleeding cramping and pain of the abortion pill? She can't. So this is not about healthcare. This is about killing the baby in the womb. The baby that we treat as patients and a patient is a person no matter how

We've had what. I call to significant down terms that could wipe us out by now. One of the you know one of the things that we did in the early days that we haven't planned on was a you know we get calls and people ask us to appear in court as expert witnesses rails. People getting divorced when you look at people's estates and values on in the state has been left in help them make choices on how they wanna proceed with this eight so when we we started this franchise in two thousand six.

It's called berlin at convertible so his organization was called the north american race team. So they those early cars. There's ten of them in called mark in a rt. And i got on praise one of those and client one in his other update on the radio basis. And it's probably in the million dollar range that's blow and i sit he thinking to myself.

And i'm not looking for like a friends with benefits situation. I'm working for more of a relationship. I like monogamy. And i've just kind of always gone in that direction so i should be like waiting until i fully trust somebody with private information. Let alone to sleep them. Well it's not about trusting them as much as it's trusting yourself right now. We've talked about this before. When i said i met my husband. I didn't ask him. Are we doing this. Just the two of us or am i your girl your forever. That conversation never entered into it. I just every time. I went out with him. I just went. How am i feeling. How am i trusting myself right because a lot of people can tell you one thing and they're going to do something else we can't always control what other people do in their lives but we can certainly control. We do ours. Yes so things are happening physically too soon. And you're having to tell these people there's really no need and it's not keeping it from them but it's just private information and for a lot of guys that are in their twenties. They're not thinking about babies yet. Anyway for the most part they have women coming to them and even though these girls early twenty seven twenty eight years old they're having dates third fourth dates where those girls are pressing them and saying so. Do you wanna babies one day and probably nobody at that table is actually ready anytime soon to get married and have a family but they talk about it as a way of securing themselves as a way of protecting and guarding themselves because if they feel like they get a yes. I'm interested in all that that that's a signal of i'm commitment. Kind of guy completely different topic unless you are in a relationship where you guys are planning something and moving toward a relationship and moving toward building a family..

I love that it left me vulnerable in relationships so re. Oh yeah yeah that quality was like here you go. I hurt just hearing that. Because i feel like some part of me gets that longing has been a very interesting word. This is very random. What i'm about to say an. I don't feel like someone who tells the story lot simply because it involves a singer that i grew up loving and i always feel namedrop but one of my therapists at a certain point over the last four years after my divorce sent me to amy. Grant's house he was just like you need to meet amy grant and i was like okay. Love her record. She already seems in djelic the best so i imagine you walking into like a house of light the best person and the most cozy beautiful household and she's married event skill which is like there was this. I mean they probably mortified me talking about it like he came home from the guitar store. It was just very like of course. This is happening. Went numb here. At amy grant house but she talked to me so much about just a terrible divorce she went through and falling in love with vents. And like having all you know like an aching longing that she feels like makes her not only love her husband but like her husband and i just remember thinking like oh the word longing it resonates in me so heavily and i don't even always know what it relates to i just as a kid. I was longing as a teenager. I was longing and even when you know the ban was like on top of the world and we're doing things for the first time that were so crazy. There was always a part of me and it got me into trouble a lot. Which is why. I say like when you say it was hard for your relationships. I relate to that getting manda trouble to that like longing feeling can you identify with the longing was four. Why i think i could guess ally. I feel like most of my deepest wounds or deepest things that really got set in to my foundations or just because of my parents growing up and they divorced. I was like a very dreamy. Romantic kid and i was like. Why is this happening every time we went to the mall. I would throw pennies in the wishing well and just be like. Please get back together. I was like. I just was longing for some version of my life that i thought i would never get and then i became a teenager. My parents became friends again and they never dated again at that point. I didn't really long for that. But i was always longing for what i didn't have an. I do think that that got set in with my parents divorce and then it sort of became applied to other things throughout my life. It was just a groove that was worn so deep it was comfortable. That was a comfortable feeling for me. That made me think about. If you are like me in the sense that i was never comfortable with the idea of a man taking care of me in any way.

"There's some sort of connection to friends or family or maybe people. We grew up playing music with and it's really i. It's so endearing. And i'm really glad that hasn't gone away. I love that haley. Were you raised to be religious like did you attend church and youth groups. Well yeah like nashville. Is the bible belt right. And i had come from mississippi which was even more deeply ingrained in southern baptist traditions. And then i moved here and it was all about like nondenominational churches. And you're really kind of like you don't really have a choice as a kid. I mean obviously your with your parents. You're doing what they do. But even as you get a little older in youth group becomes a thing and for me. It was always social. It was like this is where my friends are. This is where like a cute guy. And i'm trying to see him or whatever. Was there a lot of like in terms of being a woman to be really honest with you. I feel like my memories of being in the church is a teenager especially like a prepubescent teenager and then becoming like a young lady in the church. I almost feel like women weren't spoken to as people who have primal desires or whether it's sexuality or whether it's just like raw emotions rage any of that stuff. Because i don't know if it was more religion talking or just southern tradition but like there's a type of person that i think is projected onto a young woman in the south right especially a young white woman in the south. There's just this like social component. That has to be all the boxes up to be checked off and i never felt like i fit that but now when i think back i really feel like guys had it worse because i can just remember sitting at youth group and it being like so much. Shame onto young boys about their sexuality and what they did with it you know. And that's not even touching the topic of whether or not you identify one way or another or who you're attracted to. It was just like if you have that feeling it's wrong. Yeah but i didn't escape that either. You didn't know my parents were virgins when they got married and they wanted that for me. And i think it's because my dad was the intellectual side. My mom grew up quite poor. And i think there was a lot of like i was witness to a lot of pretty awful stuff so she passed that on to me like in good ways and bad ways. I think like ways that i really struggled with but in ways that i think have permeated other parts of my life in terms of my sense of self worth. Maybe by pride late. Yeah yeah so. We went from nashville. Oh yeah we've jumped all over the place. But i really like how you described it. Oh yeah. I grew up in seattle in the nineties and it was still a place of economic depression.

Whether it's your own personal experiences are getting into other people's like you set up the boundaries around it and so i could see that feeling really liberating and really safe and i really take pride in that.

"He absolutely nails every moment In the short made a series which is why it has such a devoted following. It's such a devoted fan. Yeah definitely definitely. That's so cool. One thing about this is some of the sharks hurt their onset and some are not so so as an actor. I mean was there was it. Mostly not there or there or a combination for you. You've got to be able to use your imagination for the shark nato series of films because the sharks and the chardonnay themselves are characters and they're brought very vividly to life by the cgi teams yeah. Obviously you can't create a chardonnay though out of january chart. I don't think anybody does it. Better than saifi and the asylum. You've got to use your imagination. But when we are when our family are helping i and fight the shark nato. I brought the chainsaw dance back to visit. His life at the end of chain is what i try to recreate in sharjah four and i think the fans are gonna there. They know the move. They know what i'm doing. So yeah yeah. That's great that's great. That's that's nice at that it through paying tribute to that film because obviously leather face and gang is a is is an icon of har. I mean that's what a lot of people grown up watching those movies. It's really amazing. And the texas chainsaw massacre has never been recreated. Coffee or score you know even really equalised to any effect In leather face changed three Directed by jeff berg. Who was my director in stepfather to Jeff made sure that the character stretch was vividly alive and established and continuing on and nobody has ever tried to recreate shop chop. Nobody's ever tried to recreate stretch. Those are standalone characters. You can try to take letter faith anywhere you want him to go in. Our film are characters remain very vividly alive for the fans. And whenever i'm on the convention circuit That love that fan base is very enthusiastic at the conventions. I've been going to recently. We've been getting lots of eight nine ten eleven twelve year olds are entering entering the costume competitions recreating or costumes in vivid detail and they know our dialogue. We're getting all the new generations of fans for the film and coincidentally their fans of shark nato series as well Now the anthony knows what he's doing senator levin and the asylum know what they're doing like the asylum doozy nation for sci-fi too and that's a great zombie show. It's a great show. It's competitive at any level with any of the new horror television series that are in the marketplace. Scream queens american horror story. They all have their own different temperature. There misogyny their own particular style. Some are very serious and very very very high end. Some are a little more rustic. And i would put shami nation in that In that category absolutely sifi in the asylum have been so generous and have worked very hard to bring in many of the characters in for their panel as they possibly can and I can't thank them enough for including me as awesome as far as texas chainsaw is. They're going to be something at the convention to kinda commemorate that. I'm not sure i know that I'm being included in a final girls panel on april twenty third at four thirty in one of the halls where they're going to assemble a group of actresses who have played final girls.

"Episode sci-fi talk my complete conversation with caroline williams known for the texas chainsaw massacre two this january thirty first. She's in shark. Nato the fourth awakens. She reprises her role sort of has stretch and she talks about how those films kind of blend together. Here's our conversation. Were you aware of this phenomenon before you got this part. Oh absolutely. i've got teenage boys. Not fi scifi is a one of their channels choice and shark weeks a big deal in our house we get we keep our eyes open for all kinds of news and online articles about sharks and shark sightings and we're the natural audience for the shortness sheri's which i fell in love with Anthony is your creative genius. He's created this amazing franchise for the scifi channel and it has been golden For scifi and anthony into the bargain is a huge fan of the texas chainsaw massacre two. She's a fan of the original. As well i think chainsaw had particular resonance for him. And when this new installation and short made up for was coming since chainsaws are the weapon of choice for nato. He thought to myself gee who took arale all the necessary to five. The shark made then stretch from one of his favorite movies. The texas chainsaw massacre q. And you knew that we were enjoying our thirtieth anniversary this year. So much of the humor in the shark nature series is inside and it standard around these casting choices. They watch with their wonderful cast. The texas chainsaw massacre choose cast. I think hit was his little kiss on the cheek to the fans of the film in its thirtieth anniversary and i couldn't be more delighted with how my contribution to the film has has turned out. I'm just thrilled with it No one's an actor. I know that these movies kind of have their own flavor and style to them. But as an actor you you the humor is actually playing it as straight as possible and maybe not doing too tongue in cheek kind of what you had to do to play stretching this one well. It was a little bit interesting. You know she Anthony doesn't mind if some of his featured players need the brad a little bit and when you're dealing when you're dealing with a character like dwayne the bounty hunter chapman playing chop top and the the hulking silent minute. Dan yeager playing other face. You can't take it you can't play it straight right. Let us have a little bit of fun but we still stayed very solidly within the parameters show the guy who anchors the whole sang always has is the terrific eye engineering. I'm telling you. I endeavor cracks a smile and the contrast between the absurdity of our characters as written for the for this installation of the show and i am in his absolutely heroic cast in concrete in it I think what makes are seeing particularly fun gonna love it great. Yeah i mean him. And tara been the mainstays. There's actually a a social media campaign whether or not to to kill her off and we're gonna find out on the thirty first. What the result of the campaign is or what happened but Yeah that's kinda wild. But i'm not getting anything anything. Of course. no no spoilers. But that's great and you know i mean i. I can't believe the people that he gets to just walk on. These movies. were distinguished a short cameo Who did you work with. You know in in this particular film that besides the main players and also some of the maybe some of the cameos stars. I pretty much our story right. You are south. There's a there's a merman. The story when i in realize he's gotta have weaponry you take on the short nato and he just happens to walk into my store and at that point a lot of action ensues. I'm not gonna tell you remorse Past the clip. That we've been featuring on all of our morning show interviews as i make the convention circuit promoting the thirtieth anniversary and our contribution to short metaphor as well as my new feature blood. Feast international horror from this going to be coming out and making the festival circuit Very soon we get a whole lot more action than you think we're going to when you first encounter us and four that's great that's great and does it take mostly place in las vegas. My story lines is not my story. Line was shot in a completely different location. Which is one of the things. That's so delightful about how anthony takes you on this wild ride. Through the short nato's she always has a different series of locations and sets but he wants the audience to experience. He really keeps it fresh. He really keeps the action pop and he really keeps is running jumping and playing out the entire movie and This installation is no different That's great i mean. I would've never thought they'd get four films after the first one but You know people keep tuning in. And it's really amazing that people that have come on board and joined the crew so to speak and it's it's always always a lot of fun so anthony him as a director. He's done three days so he kind of knows what he's doing so how was the how was he. When you first got on the set with you and then he kind of go through anything with you or was everything kinda done ahead of you know road were the best way the best prepared crews in terms of art direction set design. They really created an incredibly rocket is set for us to operate within. I can't tell you you know that that create so much. The production designer was kelly's wallace and she really recreated the spirit of texas chainsaw massacre two. She did her homework. She had a great i the propping and the design was impeccable and the comedy that comes through the affection that anthony has for change. How to really comes through in our scenes. You know anthony is a general. He is on top of everything is moving crew. It's fast paced. But he really got the spirit of the film right. And of course i on you. You said we can't say enough about him. What a heroic and and terrific figure is he's got such a great sense of fun But you know. He's the cornerstone of the whole. Thank he really is and And he's a great guy. Thunder levin is also just an incredibly funny writer and he is also well versed in so many different genres of film and television..

"For brillet. So it's an episode of his life and your cool with having other people kind of use your characters a little bit kind of add. Thanks to that. Only if i trust them physically. Sure i'm the editor each line. So i have editorial control of it. And craig worked with me. And i edited it quite a bit so It's it's his story completely. I think the thing i he'd phoned me up and say okay. Can i do this. Can i do that. What happens in this part of the universe. And of course the fencing part. He knows really well. He knew horse because he'd read the books he liked horth so he was sticking with horses a character and i think the thing i did the most is. That horse was talking a little bit too much in the original draft. And i had to sort of pare that back because it was very hard for craig because he wanted to quit and very non verbal persons back on that one so we negotiate it but yes i am okay with it and how friesen who did one of the stories for the third anthology has diamond starring in it as a guest star as long as the person is writing it in a way that treats the character in a way that i am okay with. It doesn't violate any be required things in the fag or something i've got an is written for. That's my bottom jaw. that needs editing. Then i'm okay. So it's it's a different way of working with people. I don't encourage people to just sorta bombard me with Stuff they wanted to get published and yoko legacies. I prefer they get hold of me that they sort of joined the community or at the very least that they convinced me. They're serious enough. That i'll send them books to read if they want to research but then they've got to work with me on it fitting which is not that different from a lot of other serious enterprises that that are based on a shared universe of some sort so it is shared but i did have to be clear that i am the the integrity editor and and people. If they're going to work with me. Have something that i can approve off. Jury make sets now as far as availability. I guess the easiest way of since this is going out all over the world is probably through like websites like amazon dot com. Can you get it through. Barnes and noble to. Yeah okay anywhere. That edged distribute so Yeah they're in major bookstores that can be requested through and any bookstore. They are cropping up here and there. I just recently had a nice big display at the world's biggest bookstore in toronto. Thanks jennifer jennifer strider. They're just the The manager at the sci-fi section there and so there's there's little manifestations here and they're all over the place but it it is becoming way more available in You any bookstore. You can ask for them. Nugget ordered. it's really. I think that's what's kind of changed the ground rules for publishing these days is because of the online saleability. If something's out there more than likely you can get it. Yeah that's true. And also i think one of the nice things about added the Well i guess the touch word for it the the long tail. You know the fact that you don't just have ten seconds to get something sold on a shelf. And then you're gone was so heartbreaking for me because you know how can you ever do anything different in new. If it's gotta be so recognizable that it's like another chocolate bar and he just grab it and it's gone or you know you've got this little blip so i like to have a slow steady growth. That is one that i can cope with that. Lets me keep the spirit of it intact but me Evolve it in as its own thing without even the genre okla university is kind of strange because there are novels in the series that are sort of coming of age novel. There's there's others that are more like a horror story places or it My first publication ever set yokel universe with erotic apprentice. It's really quite confusing. Because it sort of resists pigeonholing. I think that certainly gives it a lot of vibrancy and condemned in other words. It will have a longer life because it's It's so diverse is kind of like what the world is like anyway. Yeah i hope so i. That's my dream for it. It will outlive me in one way or another well. As long as it's out there. I think it will probably let us all they say. Yeah maybe took it to control that it stays true to its to vision I find it. It's really inspiring for me to see when i when young people started reading my books. I was a bit shocked. Because i didn't do the young adult books and i was a bit touchy about it because i have young children i by fourteen and sixteen year old right now and i thought i was being very risque but you know sometimes they just say oh. I think we're things on tv late night. So what i find exciting about it. Is that the message in my book. Is that as humans. We have to find ways to solve our problems that does not involve a no-holds-barred attack on other humans Using the best and smartest technology and science that we have available because we will quickly wind up an extinct species and they like that message and they find it. You know people die. People are terribly passionate about what they want. People try to cheat and one of my buttons cheaters. Get debt that kind of behavior. That kind of machiavellian That is evil and we've gone through a period in our like i think that's western civilization of volume love with evil as some sort of way to get power but actually it's only a way to commit suicide lead discard all social rules. All morality. i totally agree. You know i really do. it's In some ways. It's kind of old fashioned to talk that way. But i think it's more or less like or kind of clearing. Our hand is a little bit and realizing that. Hey this is really the only way you know you have to. You have to you have to stay on the right path. Otherwise know you're on the road to ruin all right. I really wanna thank you for taking the time to talk to me. It's been a lot of fun. Got some great stuff and certainly Look forward to talking again. I would think at least the earliest would probably be Definitely in may of next year it comes out. How fucked up but unless anything else is happening in the meantime maybe even in january you never know okay but thanks so much tony and thank you for doing what you all right. Well thank you. Don't forget you can get this to victims in fantasy book publishers.

Historically in the universe was at the place where book for was right so she had already published independently of me in and when she was approached by edge. She said well. I don't have anything up my sleep right now. But there's this thing. I do with my friend so she was really my open door to edge and so we started with the book where her interest began and it was. It was difficult because in the beginning nobody can see. The iceberg has published a book. So where's the book and the publishing industry is very focused. Its we have thirty seconds to explain yourself here. You know So it was a difficult starting with book for because people coming to book for now understand what's going on much more short but it's always hard to make every book interesting on its own but still part of the greater whole talks conversation with linda williams will return just a moment lori buddy. I'm javier hernandez creator of the comic book l. marco now a bill and you're listening to buy and now that then after that you actually started going Kind of filling in the blanks. So i mean this is actually started in. Oh two is is so now you know here. We are eight and the next one is due in may of nine So pretty cool is it. has it evolved. What you thought of or i mean. Do you have a set outline as to where you're going or or how is it that you how what's your strategy in this universe. Well what. I'm portraying now in the publishing. That's coming out on Yokel universe is sort of the payload at thirty years of immersion. My so I do have a plan. There's always been a plan of sorts for the whole series the way it was never created on the basis that well we'll do the first book and if that fails we'll do the next one it was always the whole thing. The last books routes some are in the early books factor introduced in book two for example right just anger and And they returned to cause trouble in in in a holy war which is the second book so yes. There is a plan At the same time it's a big university so when other people do things with me Like ca stories friends allergies and things like that. There's lots of places where there are corners who haven't been filled in or entire vistas of Space and time. The main arc of the main series has always been something that i have known and worked on If volvo it changes Far arena the one. That's coming out in may stimulated to do that when i was watching the oj simpson business. Which for me was that. Turning point when. I recognize that the society with watching things and the heisenberg uncertainty principle. That watching itself was changing. So i thought at trial becoming not about a man killing his wife but about how society treats negroes and it all that attention warped the nature of what was going on and that interested me and so That was part of what Germinated far which is only now coming out so one of the threads in there and you've actually are working with his mentioned other authors I think i read that. Marley billow villa do is going to be working with you Or very excuse me. Yeah and maria is going to be Over the years there's been many different ways that people being engaged with the universe one way or another and marie has agreed to work on a title for to go carell legacy series which published by absolute express and that's a an imprint of haiti's publication. I mean publisher. And she's going to be doing interviews with people that have been involved in one way or another because it touches people who are just two writers who are librarians who in one way or another have engaged with it. And i think that that story is interesting as well because it's a story of community and creativity. I i heard something that there is an rpg and related to this university Well i had a online. I i wrote a story A story in article. Once that i put online about the red reach game and people keep saying that to me. They keep saying. Oh this could be a multi person player game or it could be just kinda game where it could be a board game and the trouble with that if twofold partly it's i i'm i'm a computer scientist by training. I know exactly how much it costs to develop something really new. And i'm not really interested in just whipping some chrome on and instead of having elves and dwarves have relish dentistry or something. 'cause i'd like a game that embodied the spirit of the let's not destroy the neighborhood while we're fighting over status Kind of scenario. So i wrote the scenario about the red reach game and how i felt that that some of the rules of the game could actually underpin the philosophy of oklahoma out but there have been many people expressed an interest and then realize how much work it is and go away so i think that will have to wait for a while. That's excellent That's quite a story so i mean how. Do you kind of combine. Everything i mean. You're you're you're you're you teach you. You're also. I mean you have a job obviously you you have your wife and mother and also a writer how do you kind of. How does everything schedule itself out. Or how do you do well. The writing happens. I i long ago. I realized that if i could stop writing i really should and i guess i couldn't hear i am and I love it. It's it's part of who i am and now i have family members that are supportive and involved with me and in helping keeping it going charging. My battery charging my rail batteries. They call that and some of their fans in my friends do that too. I'm not teaching anymore now. I've taught between college and university and one of the decisions i had to make. When brian said he wanted to book every six months to get the series finished Was you know what was i going to stop doing. So it was a big transition time in my life anyway. And so i thought thought about it and i decided no my that. I would rather have another book done. So i'm now working as an instructional designer for the nursing program at the university of northern bc managing distance education courses. So i'm using my computer. Background have two masters degrees both computer related. But i have made a little more space in my life by no longer teaching to To to get the novel done and and to spend that time. I spend about an hour a day in the morning doing all related to the oklahoma university. Now i was gonna ask you as far as appearances and things. Are you going to be doing anything will. Up appearing. i guess probably more likely towards.

She lives in one of God's gifts to photographers Ireland and his doing work that when it goes by on my screen is immediately arresting immediately compelling and someone that I've wanted to meet and talk to about her work for some time now Sharon, how are you today? I'm really good Scott. How are you? I am wonderful. I have to ask because I'm just completely jealous. How is Ireland? What does Ireland look like today? Well, Ireland Spain Four Seasons in one day. I suppose as it is most often. It's a very wet and windy but lots of sunshine in between. Oh man. I've Had The Good Fortune to be there a couple of times and every single bit of it from you know the song Inner City to the the countryside is from a photographer's point of view. I think really compelling you are doing work that is not like the work a lot of people on the commission are doing and work that when it goes by as I said really does cost me to stop and look and you're calling it fine art floral photography. That's not all you do. You do landscaping do portraits that this is all on your website for those of you that are that enjoy looking at websites during these conversations. Her website is s Williams images.com s w i l l i a m s i m a g e s. Tell me how you got started in photography. Did you remember your first camera? Do you remember when you first start thinking of yourself as a photographer? Yes. Well, that's not that long ago and my husband bought me a Camera DSLR nickel and for Christmas one year. It's probably dead. 2014 and and then a couple of months later. I'm thrilled cuz I had an idea that I would like to take photographs and a few months later wage. I work in the local hospice and we were looking at maybe doing a calendar for the first year as a fundraiser, cuz I had me brand new camera. I was nominated as a photographer. So there's no pressure. So it was the best thing ready cuz it really focused my attention on what I was doing and I said about we change the the Hospice and and dairy here boy hospice is set an amazing Grimes. We it's it's on the banks of the river Foyle and it has sneezing Gardens that I've been a script and maintained by volunteers over thirty years. And so that's where I immediately Drew my inspiration from the calendar and the calendar worked out really well. So I was inspired to sort of keep going. And did you have any training at all or was it just you know work yourself off of automatic as as gradually as you could chuck. Yeah. Well, my dad does spend to stay away from automatic and go straight into Nigel. So that's what I've always done. I never use automatic. In fact, if I do I get confused. I like the absolute control over what I'm doing but in the September of the following year, I did take a short course in the local College here and the city and Guilds of course and which really introduced me to page, you know, hire a camera works and and introduced me to a new community of people as well which and it was amazing. And then after that I took another course and it was at that point. I had started really experimenting with this and came across this sort of like pad photography, but I have to say I was always fairly experimental because off The rules were a bit too fast and maybe a bit too rigid for me. So I had always sort of my first delved into like an intentional camera moves. I see em work. Yep. And I love that. I just love the movement you could get from that. And from there. I started working in Photoshop bringing like the Box focused into the ICM work and blend on the two together so very abstract and but seemed to go down well with you know, some people that aren't really appreciated it so long I kept going.
