Welcome New Peeps!

Each week I get to welcome more and more people to the McSciFi multiverse. Little by little we’re building something cool here and I want to thank each and everyone of you for your support.Lest ye forget, your favorite surreal futurist, Cyril Brown, is still hosting his #fanart contest and entries are starting to wander in. Cyril’s, eye popping, graphics are the perfect foil for artists the world over. Images range from the cute and cherubic to wildly NSFW, so there’s something for everyone.

There’s a $50 Amazon gift card for the winner and prizes and national pub for the next four runners up.

Since I’ve received a few questions about the stores I run, I’ll answer them here in the hope it will help all of you. I use Print on Demand licensing. That means I have agreed, for a small fee, to allow Spreadshirt to print anything with approved graphics and send it directly to you. They pay me and ship to you at the same time. It’s a great way for you to get all the coo coo cool stuff I have to offer without me having a warehouse on site. 

And, yes, onesies for infants are stupidly popular. But there’s so much more, from T-shirts to phone cases, I don’t even know where to begin. Right now you can get 15% off any order. Just enter the code SEPTEMBER15 to make sure you don’t overpay. I’ve bought a few shirts for Kim and myself and, after a couple of years, the colors are still fresh and the fabric didn’t shrink. These are high quality products you’ll be proud to own.You can check everything out just by visiting the LEGENDS PARALLEL and BILL McSCIFI stores.There are different designs, and all your favorite logos, available at each.

Don’t forget to tune in every Friday around 9:10 AM (CDT) to WBIG 1280 AM to listen to me on The Big Wake Up Call with Ryan Gatenby and to read all my nonfiction – mostly science, sometimes odd science, occasionally pop culture – over at The World News Center.The radio show is funny, and still manages to cover a wide range of serious topics from updating listeners on cures for Alzheimer’s to how not to hunt pythons in a swamp. Oddly, that last one has come up more than once. If you can’t listen in just click THIS LINK to scour to the podcasts.

Next week I’ll be sharing an exciting announcement from our comic book distributor, Nerdanatix, and providing a couple of updates on other projects, so make sure you don’t relegate me to your spam filter.

Thanks for being here and I’ll see you next week.
