Interview With CHAOS STATION Authors Jenn Burke and Kelly Jensen



Authors of SFR are always surprising us with something new. This is certainly true of Jenn Burke and Kelly Jensen. They launched a new m/m space opera series this month called Chaos Station. Not only that, they have a spiffy site with handy information about the series.

CHAOS STATION (Carina Press) is the first book:


“You’re not real. Felix Ingesson is dead.”

The war with the alien stin is over, but Felix Ingesson has given up on seeing his lover, Zander Anatolius, ever again. Zander’s military file is sealed tighter than an airlock. A former prisoner of war, Felix is attempting a much quieter life keeping his ship, the Chaos, aloft. He almost succeeds, until Zander walks on board and insists that Felix isn’t real.

A retired, broken super soldier, Zander is reeling from the aftereffects of his experimental training and wants nothing more than to disappear and wait for insanity to claim him. Then he sees footage of a friend and ally—a super soldier like him—murdering an entire security squad with her bare hands and a cold, dead look in her eyes. He never expected to find Felix, the man he’d thought dead for years, on the ship he hired to track her down.

Working with Felix to rescue his teammate is a dream come true…and a nightmare. Zander has no exit strategy that will leave Felix unscathed—or his own heart unbroken.

Cosmic Laughs & Love Film Spotlight: HEARTBEEPS, A Comedic SFR Film So Bad, It’s Actually Kinda Not Good At All


[Introduction: I first blogged about HEARTBEEPS back in 2011. This film is so bizarre and inadvertently funny I figured I'd unleash a revamped post about it for TGE's Cosmic Laughs & Love event. You're welcome!]

HEARTBEEPS (1981), starring Andy Kaufman and Bernadette Peters, has got to be one of the worst science fiction romance films ever made. Possibly also one of the worst comedies ever to hit the silver screen. I can’t even describe how bad this film is. Painfully bad. You-won’t-forgive-yourself-in-the-morning bad. In fact, I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy, although on second thought, it might come in handy if Earth needs to ward off an alien invasion using cringeworthy cinema.
