Geektown Radio : Episode 38 – Interview with author Christopher Brookmyre plus UK Geek News, Premiere Updates & Air Date Info!

It's our 38th episode and we're back with Chris, and an interview with Christopher Brookmyre, author of numerous award winning novels (Quite Ugly One Morning, Boiling a Frog, All Fun And Games until Someone Loses an Eye), and writer of the video game and novel Bedlam.


Ross (aka Bedlam) is an overworked and underpaid scientist developing medical technology for corporate giant Neurosphere. In the book, one rainy Monday morning Ross volunteers as a test candidate for the new brain scanning tech – anything to get out of the office for a few hours. But when he gets out of the scanner he discovers he’s not only escaped the office, but possibly escaped real life for good! Ross finds himself trapped in Starfire – the violent sci-fi game he spent his teenage years playing – with no explanation, no backup and, most terrifyingly, no way out!


For the game they are taking a slightly different perspective... a female perspective… Players will take on the role of Heather, a colleague of Ross, who is a programmer at medical scanning developer Neurosphere. There she also finds herself transported into the world of Starfire: a nineties FPS she remembers from her teen years. Searching for an explanation and a way home, she ventures beyond Starfire to discover a vast realm of interconnected game worlds documenting the evolution of the FPS genre and of video games in general.
In this weeks show:
