The Summer of the Rift 1993 begins with two reviews from Keith and David and Dan.  The episode concludes with Keith interviewing author Alexander Brejcha from Philcon 92.

Please take a moment by commenting on the episode here or by writing john@chronicrift.com, or by calling 888-866-9010.


Trivia: We could have simply ended the season as we planned the previous week, but we had so much material, we didn't want to sit on it until September.  Also, doing more of these location episodes was good practice for John in terms of editing as the studio episodes were going to be cut short due to lack of sponsorship.
