While with the last episode of this sci-fi sub-series I focused on the more grounded series The Expanse I’ve decided to share something more wild and silly. If you haven’t yet you should try out Killjoys. https://amzn.to/2VhrSEq an entertaining romp along with a group of bounty hunters with dark secrets who get involved with a potentially galaxy threatening threat.

Twin Peaks – Traces to Nowhere


Back again to the mysterious logging town of Twin Peaks. Tonight we get to know some of the citizens a bit better and see some more of the surprising connections that tie people together, and tie them to the young victim, Laura Palmer.

Obviously there will be spoilers for the show, and while Twin Peaks does have some disturbing content, the intention of Sleepy Time Tales is to help you sleep, so I’ll avoid those bits as much as possible.

Amazon has some very interesting media for Twin Peaks, besides the show itself, including the apparently rather excellent book The Secret History of Twin Peaks by Mark Frost, the show’s co-creator, so take a look.

The Trials of Thor


Tonight’s episode returns to the well of mythology. This time, a Norse tale about the Trials of Thor, a set of challenges presented to the mighty god by Utgarda-Loki, a king among the Giants of Jotunheim.

One of the websites I used for my research belongs to author Daniel McCoy, this is his book om Amazon. Judging by his website it should be very well researched and written, so give him some support if you’re inclined.

While there are many classic tales of Norse Mythology, Neil Gaiman recently released his interpretation of the stories.
