This is my friend Darin Kennedy’s release week for The Mussorgsky Riddle, a paranormal mystery about a boy lost in the labyrinth of his own mind and the psychic who tries to save him. You can find it on Amazon and B&N.
In honor of his debut novel, which contains musical themes throughout, I thought I’d write a post about music. I cast about for music videos with a science fiction or fantasy element to them and set up a YouTube playlist. Since my favorite genre is metal, this playlist mainly consists of rock and metal (so… content warning), but I branched out a little.
Heads up! I’ll be at his Facebook event tomorrow evening to talk about his book and this blog post. Come and say hi!

Ballad of Mona Lisa by Panic! At The Disco is the featured steampunk selection here. If you’ve never heard Panic! before, this is a fun, peppy song that’s visually appealing. As you know, I love steampunk, so this video definitely caught my eye.
Bring ‘Em Down by Lostprophets just seems grungy until you get to about 2:12, and then there’s some future tech going on. You’ll see what it does at the end.
