Dramatic reading of DEATH

By Phil Plait | June 9, 2010 9:00 am

kenplumeHey, remember my interview with Ken Plume from A Site Called Fred? Well, tonight at 20:00 Eastern time (midnight UT), I will be doing a reading from my book Death from the Skies! as part of the Reading Room series Ken does on his site.

He’ll be streaming the reading live, so be sure to tune in and hear me talk about The Asteroid and the Dinosaurs (spoiler alert: it goes badly for the dinosaurs). Afterward there’ll be a Q&A so you can ask me personal questions and I’ll mock you. Should be fun.

    J/P=?

  2. Mystery Science Theater 3000.

    Greatest.

    Show.

    Ever.

  3. Hey! I come to this blog to read about astronomy, not about some guy reading passages from a book by an unknown author! Let’s get back to astronomy, or I’m going to cancel my subscription to this blog, and demand my money back!

    I hope this isn’t necessary, but… :-)

  4. Oh sure, post that spoiler. Now any potential Death From The Skies: The Movie is ruined for me!

  5. And, I suppose you don’t bother to mention the *real* story about the dinosaur extinction:

    IIRC, the asteroid doesn’t fair much better.

    … and I hear even Earth got scarred.

    Seriously, it went well for the dinosaurs. There are twice as many species of dinosaurs than mammals today.

    However, the _non-avian_ dinosaurs; ouch!

    Hello, it’s Crow T. Robot and Tom Servo! Boy I wish some cable station would play MST3K at one in the morning of Fridays or Saturdays. Did you hear me Spike, Comedy Central, and SyFy channels?
