ARCELIUS SCOTT replied to Cranston's discussion CB’S POV: Who You Gonna Call This Time? (“Ghostbusters”)
"I had preconceived notions about this LADY ghostbusters but it proved me wrong. I'm a huge fan of original movies but this was a very funny and entertaining addition to the GB franchise."

"I actually liked this movie. I didn't feel that it was as bad as it was reviewed by some. This was supposed to be about a new class of Ghostbusters, hence them all being female. Now was Ray Winston a scientist like the rest of the guys, i…"

The passengers of the ship are humanoids whose skin color is “a dark, livid… green.” In appreciation for their efforts the Terrans are given “slaves,” seven… Continue

In his essay “Why Blacks Should Read (and Write) Science Fiction” (in Sheree Thomas’ anthology Dark Matter: A Century of Speculative Fiction from the African Diaspora) Charles R. Saunders says, “The human imagination manifests itself in stories.

I will get back to posting normally...one day. Each day is an extended nightmare; each day is not "normal." We're either in the middle or the edge of a whirlwind. No one remembers Paul Manafort was arrested last Friday. I guess that was the point of this madness. He manipulates the media…

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
