Mark Time Awards Deadline

The deadline for entry in the annual Mark Time Awards is March 1. That’s a postmark deadline. So start getting your entries together. And send us your best stuff. Everyone else is.

Mark Time Awards for Science Fiction Audio theater, and the Ogle Awards for Fantasy and Horror Audio theater are given each year for the best productions of the year. They are presented at Convergence, the largest Twin Cities science fiction convention, this year on July 5.

We’ve made a change this year in the entry procedure. You now need only send in one audio or MP3 CD of your entry, or tell us where we can download the files. We’ll distribute them to the judges in MP3 format. But be sure the MP3 is at least 256 kbps and 16 bit depth, and include all the ID3 tags you can. ID3 tags are text information embedded in the file and can be added using iTunes or any number of audio editors. Please include title, artist, author, year, track numbers, and you can put your website in the “comments” tag. You do still have to send in the entry form and fee.

Mark Time Radio Show 2011

Thwack That Dirigible


Do You Want Fries With That?

Great Northern is proud to release the latest Mark Time Radio Show, live from Convergence 2011. It’s available as a download from the
ZBS Catalog.

A stolen dream-driven dirigible, an evil steam-powered spider and a styrofoam grail, all have the fair dream mistress Princess Doyle a la Carte and the decidedly bubbly Count Pierre d'Orc on the run beyond the overtaxed capacity of their Heisenberg Hyper Extended Reversal Dream Drive.

Steampunk and other steam-like stuff take a bath in this latest Brian Price and Jerry Stearns satire. Featuring special appearances by The Tonight Show's Wally Wingert, Transylvania Television's Gordon Smuder and the Hungarian Dwarf Parade.
