But now the trio find themselves on the mean streets of Madderch while they’re still the target of at least one crime lord. Where can they possibly go to find safety?

THE REPORTER Episode #7

After interviewing Ma Tweedy — mother of Ju Tweedy, the man accused of the murder of Grace McDermot — Yolanda increasingly questions the official story of the Madderch police. Yolanda also thinks her friend Miriam — McDermot’s bodyguard when McDermot was murdered — is holding back information. Yolanda and Whykor have arranged to meet Miriam at the game between the OS1 Orbiting Death and the To Pirates, played on the home field of the Death, that facility famously known as “The Black Hole.” On the field, it’s Condor Adrian vs. Frank Zimmer, and off the field, it’s Yolanda Davenport vs. this damn story.

THE REPORTER Episode #6

Previously on … THE REPORTER. Yolanda and Whykor’s near-death experience had a somewhat happy ending. Thanks to the efforts of Doc Izzy, they both survived the wounds suffered in their crawler encounter. But, that does mean Yolanda owes Tarat the Smasher yet another favor, for it was Tarat that sent her to Doc Izzy. After recovering, yolanda was surprised to learn that Ju Tweedy’s mother — the delightful, tiny Human known to many as “Ma Tweedy” — was still on Madderch. Yolanda and Whykor the Aware are on their way to interview her. And now, Episode number six of … the reporter.

FridayFix • Sneak peek of
Syfy’s CHILDHOOD’S END

ARealGirl here. Scott and I were lucky enough to get an early viewing of SyFy’s new miniseries CHILDHOOD’S END, based on the novel by science fiction legend Arthur C Clarke. I read the book ages ago.

THE REPORTER Episode #2

Star reporter Yolanda Davenport has been tasked by GFL Commissioner Rob Froese to get the real story behind the murder of Grace McDermot. Krakens runningback Ju Tweedy was accused of that murder, an event that almost got him killed by Orbiting Death owner and crimelord Anna Villani, and led to Ju joining the Ionath Krakens. In just her first few hours on the case, Yolanda has already been threatened by Quyth Warrior Marik the Covetous, who may be connected to Krakens owner Gredok the Splithead. Why would Gredok get in the way of finding out the truth about McDermot’s murder, and Ju’s possible guilt?
