The Lafferty Heaven books                - Is there a conclusion in the works here?  Anyone know?


On ISBW she said she had just finished her project "Underground."  After the rewrites she will begin the conclusion to the Heaven series--War.

So I have finished Earthcore and Ancestor by Scott Sigler...Anyone notice any similarities?  They seem to both use pretty much the same formula...

1)  Nasty Monsters
2)  Extremely tough environmental conditions in remote locations
3)  The crazy super tough person who wants to kill the heroes
4)  Companies betting the farm for huge profits
5)  mad genius scientists
6)  The tough soldier dude (who falls in love with the tough soldier lady)
7)  The grizzled old guy who knows the land "like the back of his hand".

These are the only two Sigler books I have listened to, and don't get me wrong, they were both pretty good, but they were pretty much the same book...one set under a mountain and the other on an island.

I've only listened to Ancestor and it seemed more than a little similar to Jurassic Park.  The motive for recreating extinct life forms was different, but otherwise ....

I don't wanna be a rude new forum member, but as a newbie to podcast audio stuff who only has the basics like the big EP 3 and Drabblecast, along with a few other peripheries that I'm still giving second/third chances to like clonepod, the Sigler stuff has been entirely overrated, IMO.  I listened to all of Earthcore and Ancestor.  It's ok, but it only got into my ears because this audio stuff is fresh territory.  Give more standard, talented (but granted, less visionary)pro-writers some time to put stuff out there (which they eventually will cuz it's a dying market) and novels like these will pale in comparison.  Not saying I didn't wring some enjoyment from them, just saying that competition is pretty sparse.  Tried a JC Hutchins and couldn't get past first 2 or 3.  Will start Infection soon with expectations of more of the same drill.

I'm afraid I gave up on Earthcore about a quarter of the way through it.

So I'm now listening to Nocturnal...I'm about 1/2 way through and am liking it...The Cop angle is different for the Sigmeister so that is neat...Plus, it doesn't seem to fit the mold that earthcore and ancestor fall into.  So it's nice to hear something different from him.

Now that Murder at Avedon Hill is complete, I'm casting around for a new fantasy podcast.  I think I've narrowed it down to three choices.  Any recommendations?

Is that a negative recommendation against all the podcasts I listed?

Not at all I am unfamiliar with all of them actually just throwing another suggestion out there to you.  I am a huge fan of Mur's writing and so I suggested Heaven.  you can find out more here at http://www.murverse.com

Is this the last book of Heaven?  This story has just gone on tooooo long.  If it wasn't for Mur's reading voice I would have given up early in book 3.

Okay, War has gone live, but I can't seem to find a subscription feed.  Anybody know where one might be, or are we expected to manually download each episode?

[edit]
Found it at podiobooks.com.  Silly me, what was I thinking, looking on Lafferty's own site?  Roll Eyes

Whilst there's not a feed up there yet, there is her email address.  How about you suggest a feed to her, or ask where it is?

   In fact, here you go, direct from Mur herself:

Frak iTunes.

It seems the feed at heavennovel.com would have me re-download the four parts I've already got (am I wrong?)  I'll just use the podiobook feed.  But thanks for the heads-up anyway.
