The Underground Space Station

About a week ago, I saw an article on-line that StarTrek.com was looking for articles. They wanted a quick description of what topic would be written about, so I dashed off a couple lines about PTSD and how it’s shown, or not shown, on Trek. Didn’t hear back yet. HOWEVER, some other people MUST have, since articles have started appearing.

Sadly, I fear I’ve started to label these less Trek, and more another Nimoy vehicle, In Search Of…An Editor. As can be seen here or here it’s like overhearing a conversation waiting in the autograph line at a convention.  The Mirror Universe article could be an analysis of the darkness inside, or which world we’re in, not an episode summary.  The Ferengi one could have been really insightful, with more discussion of the label as Outsider.  Instead, it becomes a Poor Me Screed.  There’s one about the Jewish origins of…

It was an interesting name as chosen by scientists for such an event; touching on concepts of the big bang and the creation of all things. For Hollywood, it inspired a bit of a different Biblical twist, the time of giant beasts.

The Manitou Cover“It’s Misquamacus. The greatest medicine man of all. He turned rivers, made storms. Mountains rose at his command. No spirit ignored him. No demon denied him.”

In 1976, British horror author Graham Masterson had his first novel published. That novel was The Manitou. The novel would be fairly well received and Masterson would go on to write five sequels and a short story- the last sequel novel so far published in 2015 –and have lead character Harry Erskine appear in other works not directly tied to the Manitou series. The series would have a number of references to the works of H.P. Lovecraft written into them from the very start, and Masterson would write more than story outside of his Manitou works that were openly built on Lovecraft’s works.

It’s perhaps this- on top of his ability to write stories that play well to the reader –that not only…
