014 – Episodic vs Full-Length – Space Quest Historian Podcast

The Historian takes on the controversial issue of episodic vs. full-length games and discusses the merits and drawbacks of both approaches to releasing games. Also, we hear more from the saga of Priapic Mountain from both co-CEO Serena Nelson and bitter, original CEO (now co-CEO) Pete Toleman. We continue our journey down the Space Quest III soundtrack as reimagined by fan composer James Mulvale with ‘The Navigation Theme,’ along with a brief introduction by SQ3′s music editor Mark Seibert. And we’re also talking a bit about how the game sounded on various other systems back in the day. Finally — last but not least — there’s another scintillating update from the Andromedan bunker about how the SpaceVenture is coming along by our very own Space Pope.

Check out Infamous Quest’s new game Quest For Infamy over at http://infamous-quests.com — designed by our very own SteveBot and featuring music and narration by James Mulvale.

012 – “The Death of Roger Wilco” – Space Quest Historian Podcast

“The wait is over! (You WERE waiting, right?) This is the 12th and final episode of this season of The Space Quest Historian. Yes, we’re doing seasons now. The podcast will be going on a short hiatus while season 2 is being planned. Stay tuned on Twitter @SpaceQuestNet and on www.spacequesthistorian.com for information on the new season. But for now, settle back and enjoy a very special season finale featuring some very special guests – including return appearances from SteveBot, Chuck Clusterbluck and Pete Toleman. And a bunch of other people (thank you, everyone!). And of course we will be continuing Josh Henry’s epic tale of Sierra fandom heroism, as read by the author himself. And also a very special treat: A 1,000 word excerpt of a new long-form Space Quest fan fiction story, written by Akril, and read by the great Joe Cassara – it’s a Space Quest Historian Exclusive! Thank you for listening, everyone, and I will see you around the chronostream!”

011 – “Fan Fiction Theatre Pt. 2″ – Space Quest Historian Podcast

Prepare your audio receptive organs for part two of the Fan Fiction Theatre! In this episode, pleasant vocal provider Joe Cassara once again regales us with Roger Wilco’s tales in long-form prose — this time we will hear excerpts from the unfinished SQ3 and SQ5 novels, written in another lifetime by the Historian himself, as well as the novel Lone Voyager, set in the SQ6 universe, by the Historian and Leonard Kramer. But it’s not all nostalgia: We also get the first of hopefully many chapters of Josh Henry’s original tale of Sierra fandom, read by the author himself, and including a special introduction by the man. Find a nice place to recline, pour yourself something liquid (or at least mildly viscous), close your eyes and dream yourself away to a distant galaxy. Or at least get a start in on that washing-up as you’re listening to this. Really, your kitchen is filthy

010 – “Fan Fiction Theatre Pt. I” – Space Quest Historian Podcast

“Settle in with a nice glass of whatever’s-your-poison and relax to the soothing voice of professional radio announcer Joe Cassara reading excerpts from the Space Quest fan fiction novels written around 1997-1998 by Daniel Stacey (Mage’s Initiation, King’s Quest II and III VGA) and the Historian himself … oh, and Pete Toleman gives it a go, too. Prepare for horror. There’s also news from the Andromedan Bunker, straight from the lips of that sexy beast, the Space Pope. And we conclude with our last and final and ultimate part of the fireside chat between the gentlemen of rock, Brandon Blume and Ken Allen. Stay tuned for Part II and check out www.spacequesthistorian.com for links to the PDF’s of the novels.”
