Chris Weber is a writer of television, comic books, an internationally syndicated comic strip, and all the songs in this collection of 107 lyrics. Topics range from travel through space and time, to a variety of movies from the 80s, to the impact of science on day-to-day life. Humor, history, and heart spill out of these verses. You'll meet familiar characters from all forms of s.f. media and new denizens of the science fiction worlds of filk music.
Filk was a typo in an article about "science fiction folk music." The name stuck. You can find the songs of this "genre within a genre" at conventions, home sing-a-longs, and in a wide variety of analog and digital media. While some of Chris's songs are to original tunes, most can be sung to familiar songs from traditional ballads to modern pop-rock.
With topical sections and an index by title, these pieces are ideal for perusing in small bites or sharing in filk circles of friends or family.
