HTP Episode 097 – Stephan Reese

Screen Shot 2021-07-22 at 10.27.41 AM

 

 

Stephan Reese is the Executive Director of The Interactive Art Collection, a showcase of video game related visual works.  Most notable in that collection is “The Art of Nintendo Power”,  which are examples of the mixed media that created the covers and spreads for Nintendo’s showcase magazine.  Nintendo Power ran from 1988 to 2012, and Stephan indulges me greatly as I ask all sorts of questions (and just geek out) over how the magazines served to bring Nintendo fans game news when there were no better conduits.

HTP Episode 096 – Steven Jay Rubin Returns!

B34F9C12-F6AD-481B-BC1B-1B8E923FE609

 

Steven Jay Rubin (who discussed James Bond in Episode 74) visits again to indulge me in my deep-dive into The Twilight Zone and its creator, Rod Serling.  The two of us spend a lot of time discussing how the writing of the series was heavily motivated my Rod’s sense of activism and social reform.  We also note that The Twilight Zone was one of the first examples of mainstream science fiction being made for adults.  Steve is able to draw heavily on his book, The Twilight Zone Encyclopedia, as a resource.

 Steve’s Amazon Author page is definitely worth following. You can also find him on LinkedIn,  and his somewhat lesser-used Twitter.
