JOHN F. ALLEN TO CO-HOST TWO TOWERS TALK SHOW WITH R.J. SULLIVAN

TTTS FRAME

Hello everyone! I’m EXTREMELY excited to announce a NEW venture I’ll be embarking on in March 2016, called the Two Towers Talk Show! This will be a YouTube talk show featuring:

  • Comic Book reviews/commentary (primarily from me)
  • TV and movie reviews/commentary
  • Classic/old movie reviews (primarily from R.J.)
  • Author interviews
  • Guest hosts
  • AND MORE!!!

I’ll be co-hosting the show with friend and fellow author, R.J. Sullivan. Together, we will explore and discuss Pop Culture, geeky stuff, etc… While R.J. and I are often in sync with our opinions, we contrast sufficiently to make for insightful, positive and  interesting conversations.
The show will be sponsored by the Speculative Fiction Guild, shot in Indianapolis, Indiana primarily at our Two Towers Talk Show Studio, but also sometimes on location at various conferences, conventions and community events. We will also place a strong emphasis on Indie and Small Press authors from around the globe, as well as Indy region authors.
Over the holidays, I approached R.J. with the idea of creating a YouTube talk show about things we normally would spend quite a bit of time talking about anyway. Coincidentally, he had already had pretty much the same idea (Great minds think alike!).
We’re both looking to have individual video and editorial features where we discuss personal Pop Culture interests as well.
R.J. and I have had plenty conversations about the various directions the show may go, but we both agreed that things like this are best grown organically, and that’s how this show will develop.
We’re also looking forward to interacting with our viewers and readers via comments on our videos, blog posts and social media outlets. There will also be a Mail Room segment of each show where we answer on-air, a selection of email questions you send us @: twotowerstalkshow@gmail.com
Sometimes we will be broadcasting live and/or on location, where we will be taking a selection of twitter questions as well.
The show will begin airing on YouTube starting in March 2016 and has a companion blog/website and social media presence (see below).

KNIGHT RANGER POSTER ART 2Synopsis: Captain Alexandre Cornelius “Neal” Du Bois is a US Army Ranger and decorated war hero. When his unit is ambushed by supernatural hostile forces while in Afghanistan, only Neal survives. When he wakes up in a secret government facility, Neal discovers that his whole life has changed forever.

A shadowy government agent named Elijah Bishop arranges for Neal’s brain to be transplanted, without his permission, into a bio-engineered body capable of amazing feats. Armed with advanced body armor and weaponry, he becomes the epitome of the Ultra Soldier.

To protect his family and those closest to him, he must let the world and everyone he loves believe he is dead. With assistance from Dr. Avery Clarkson–the scientist responsible for his new body–Neal reluctantly utilizes his superhuman abilities to work for Bishop and his organization called G.E.N.E.S.I.S. (Global Espionage Network of Elite Supernatural Intelligence and Surveillance), in order to track down those responsible for the slaughter of his unit and keep the world safe from supernatural terrorist forces.

LATEST CODENAME: KNIGHT RANGER REVIEW!

KNIGHT RANGER POSTER ART 2

Here’s the latest review for Codename: Knight Ranger!
“There are enemies that exist beyond general human awareness and comprehension; enemies thought to be products of lore and nightmares. The premise of Codename: Knight Ranger, an exciting science fiction thriller written by John F. Allen, is that monsters are real. Werewolves, vampires and a variety of creatures thought to be frightful products of human imaginings are indeed substantive…and lethal. A select group of humans are at war with these monsters.
Ranger Captain Alexandre Du Bois becomes an unwilling participant in this invisible war when his unit in Afghanistan is ambushed. The captain suffers catastrophic injuries. In fact ‘catastrophic’ drastically understates his condition. Du Bois dies but is brought back to life by means that becomes key to his subsequent alteration. Thanks to an enigmatic organization led by a mysterious mastermind named Bishop, Du Bois is outfitted with a new body complete with enhanced capabilities, a kind of six million man on mega doses of steroids. To top it off, he’s provided with a super durable armored suit, packed with enough fire power to shred an army. But the transition from ordinary man to ultra-soldier becomes a jarring shock to Du Bois’ senses. Not to mention the costs that his commitment as an ultra soldier entails, a cost that deeply embitters him. Having never consented to this transformation, Du Bois bears enmity toward the person responsible for his condition: Bishop. Nevertheless, Du Bois is a soldier, and he will do his duty, because if he doesn’t, the monsters win.
Knight Ranger is a short but delightfully satisfying read. The build-up leading to Du Bois’ demonstration of his abilities gives the reader a rich insight into his state of mind. There is a lot of flashy hi tech in this book which I enthusiastically imbibed like literary crack. When Du Bois finally goes into the field, the action is hyper fast, hard hitting and explosive. I’ll expect no less of the sequel.”
