The American Society For Science Fiction Audio

The Mark Time Award is given each year to honor the Best Science Fiction Audio Production on the Planet. And the Ogle Award for Best Fantasy Audio Production of the Year.

Charles Ogle played the first Frankenstein’s creation in Edison’s silent 1910 film of the famous science fiction horror novel. Fantasy includes magical “high” fantasy, sword and sorcery, horror, modern urban fantasy, and other things that don’t fall under the criteria of Science Fiction. But, we’ll be the judges of that.

A Gold and a Silver Mark Time Award, and a Gold and a Silver Ogle Award, will be awarded at CONvergence,, June 30-July 3 of 2011.

Broken Sea High on the Waves!

Our good friends at Broken Sea have done it again!

This time they are the proud owners of the Sir Julius Vogel award in New Zealand where the company is based!

Sir Julius Vogel was the eighth Premier in New Zealand, and back in the 1800’s considered the first New Zealander to write science fiction. His book Anno Domini 2000- A Woman’s Destiny was first published after he retired from politics in 1889.

Broken Sea’s win was under Fan Production for The Doctor Who Podcast with Mark Kalita as the ever present Doctor.

CONGRATULATIONS to Mark, Paul Mannering, Stevie Farnaby, Robin Carlisle, Bill Hollweg and all the folks at Broken Sea!
