Some Sad SP News

A brief update to bring some long overdue news. I had intended to put this up on the website last year, but as usual life got in the way. I have finally gotten around to writing up a tribute to original Strange Paradise cast member Paisley Maxwell, who died in August of 2010. Ms. Maxwell was one of the people who brought the Maljardin storyline to life, and on a personal note was one of my favorite interviewees.

Check out my brief tribute right here.

Brief Update

Sorry all for the delay in updating the website. Sometimes, as we all know, life can get in the way of important things like Strange Paradise! I wanted to let everyone know, though, that the delay is only temporary.

Recently I was unfortunately one of the latest victims of our bad economy and lost my job that I had had for the past 11 years. Naturally it came as quite the shock and my efforts have been directed towards finding more gainful employment. I am happy to note that the outlook seems promising, so hopefully I will be able to get back to some updates very soon!

Archive Updates

One of my favorite parts of Strange Paradise research is uncovering interesting items to put on our archive pages. I will be updating these pages more and more in the coming months, as there is a lot of catching up to do, but for now check out two new archive items - one for January 26, 2009 and one for February 2, 2009:

Site Updates

Not much new on the site just yet, but for those interested, you can check out the new photo slideshows for episodes 21-25 here.

Book Update

For those of you wondering about the status of the print edition of the Strange Paradise guide, I just wanted to let you all know that the book will eventually come out, but I have put it on hold in favor of completing the website. I've done this for several reasons:
  • With my current other commitments, it's much easier to work on a few web pages each week rather than try and create entire chapters for the book. This way there will be steady progress
  • Much of what you see on the website will be included in the book, and in some cases (interviews, for example) the website will have even more information
  • The website is more immediate, both for myself and for everyone who is interested in it

Thanks for the patience, everyone, and I hope that you continue to enjoy all that will be on offer!

New Developments is back, sort of. After a long basence due to lots and lots of goings on in my personal life, I have finally decided to try and integrate work on the website back into my routine. It's oneof those things that just kept nagging at me, and I felt quite guilty about abandoning all of the work that had been put into it, so with a new year and a new outlook I'm going to be slowly but hopefully steadily updating the website.

Stay tuned for more information and updates!
