About Author

Stephen Schleicher began his career writing for the Digital Media Online community of sites, including Digital Producer and Creative Mac covering all aspects of the digital content creation industry. He then moved on to consumer technology, and began the Coolness Roundup podcast. A writing fool, Stephen has freelanced for Sci-Fi Channel's Technology Blog, and Gizmodo. Still longing for the good ol' days, Stephen launched Major Spoilers in July 2006, because he is a glutton for punishment. You can follow him on Twitter @MajorSpoilers and tell him your darkest secrets...


  1. Are we limiting the Creation turning on Creator trope discussion to Sci-Fi genre? Because there are tons of examples from mythology of that as well. Christianity in particular is rife with it, what with the stories of Adam and Eve, and Lucifer….
    Kinda adds another layer of meaning to the whole “playing god” thing.

  2. Frederick Pagliarulo on

    As lost as I often am during some of the comic book discussions, I always keep an ear open while listening to Major Spoilers because there will always be something new that will spark my interest. This week Stephen has convinced me to watch Penny Dreadful. Thanks for another week of great discussions!

  3. This has been brought up before on the podcast, but you don’t really get a discount on items for being an Amazon Prime member, do you? As a Prime member myself, I only thought it was free 2-day shipping… The Prime logo next to the price only indicates that it’s eligible for that free 2-day shipping, I’m pretty sure. Can anyone confirm or deny this?
