Reality Break - A Talk Show of Fantastic Literature

Photos from Reality Break

Over the past six years, we've featured a number of wonderful guests on the program - the vast majority of them via the telephone. Occasionally we get to do interviews face to face, and here are some photos of some of those meetings.

This page has gotten too big, with the addition of the 1998 Dragon*Con photos. This is soon to break into 2 or more pages. For now, I apologize for the unwieldiness of this battleship-like web page. - dhs

Clive Barker and your host after the interview in July 1996. We were kindly allowed studio space by the folks at the wonderful WWOZ in New Orleans (hi Dameond!). Photo by Clive's media escort, whose name I didn't record.

Caitlin R. Kiernan and myself at the Atlanta Hilton for our interview at Dragon*Con 1998. Note the print of the cover of her novel Silk strategically placed over her shoulder. Photo by Jennifer Caudle.

Interview author, editor and musician Keith R.A. DeCandido. Keith was an online buddy back when he also did an SF interview show in New York. His was on cable, although he's not that much better looking than me. Photo by Darlene Slusher.

The Don't Quit your Day Job Players play their epononymous song at the live remote from Dragon*Con 1998. The song is real new, and you can see band members cheating with lyrics sheets. This picture also shows the problem of photographing groups standing in a circle around a mike, since both of the Honigsbergs are obscured. Photo by Darlene Slusher

Interviewing artist and publisher Denis Kitchen at Dragon*Con 1998. He was the only person to show up on time the first half of the remote (several didn't show at all), and was a whole lot of fun to talk to. Right about now we are discussing Will Eisner. Photo by Darlene Slusher

If there was no other reason to go to Dragon*Con year after year, seeing cartoonist Patty Leidy would make it worthwhile. We didn't interview this year, but we did get a photo that includes product placement for Patty's Zero Hour collection. Photo by a friend of Patty's whose name I didn't get.

A little bit of posing from Atlanta's own Danger Woman. If you think the photo is something, you should hear the tape. At Dragon*Con 1998. Photo by Darlene Slusher.

One of these rare photos without me in it. This was taken at a signing at the Science Fiction and Mystery Bookshop in Atlanta in April 1993. On the left is Michael Bishop, on the right is Brad Strickland. Within the year, I would interview each. Photo by Dave Slusher.

Flaming Carrot creator Bob Burden interviews himself while I work the camera. Taken at Dixie Trek 1989, these interviews would plant the seed that became Reality Break several years later. Bob has been back on, too. Photo by Dave Slusher.
