For those of you who are reading this, I hope you realize this is an actual video blog as well! Just click on the image in the header of this blog and you can listen to the blog instead of taking the time to read it. Much to my surprise I have something to talk about this blog. So much so, this blog is nearly three times as long as my average blog tends to be. So you have the choice… read it, or watch / listen to the blog! Choice is always a good thing.

Following is bonus content tying in the Derek Holland's article "Xenogenesis in Fantasy Settings," which appears in in d-Infinity Volume #3: Children of the Night. Where spontaneous generation produces life from lifeless material, xenogenesis is where one species gives rise to another. There are several types of xenogenesis.
