Weekly Update #211! The Man in the High Castle and Surrounded by Enemies

Editor's Note

I will be going through a minor medical procedure today so that's the reason you are seeing this Weekly Update posted a little earlier than usual. Don't worry, its nothing serious, but I couldn't guarantee I would be around to promote this on social media like I usually do. Hopefully everything goes well so I can get back to the alternate history. I have two new videos for the channel, plus an upcoming series of videos that I am going to talk about more below.

And now the news...

Amazon's The Man in the High Castle Premiers This Friday

Well we finally made it guys. Amazon will be premiering the ten episodes of its adaptation of The Man in the High Castle this Friday. If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you have probably seen me talk a lot about this show (by the way, you're welcome Amazon for all the free publicity) and I'm going to talk more about it in the weeks to come.

I am going to be releasing vlogs for every episode on my YouTube channel where I and a special guest will discuss what we liked and didn't like about each episode. I'm not sure what the schedule is going to be for these reviews. It may be weekly, daily or just whenever we can find the time to film them. Nevertheless, I am really looking forward to it, especially after watching Dominic Patten's review of the entire series on Deadline where he recommended the show as an excellent adaptation of Philip K. Dick's original work.

Be excited guys. I really hope I am not jinxing myself, but I think we are finally going to see a quality work of alternate history from Hollywood. In the meantime, if you want more High Castle content, check out this list from FanSided of the 20 things you need to know about the series.

Video of the Week: Talking with Surrounded by Enemies Author Bryce Zabel

This week's featured video is Cody Franklin's interview of Bryce Zabel, author of Surrounded by Enemies, on the Alternate History Hub:
Its something different from Cody and hopefully we will see more videos like this in the future. You guys can also check out my interview with Bryce from last year here.

Honorable mention this week goes out to Brooke Johnson reading an excerpt from her book, The Brass Giant.
