 I love fantasy. I know fantasy/SF is pretty popular these days, but I fell in love long before the genre became the “flyest kid at the school.” There's just something wonderful about escaping into a…Continue

@Sir Landis
:D We need a con pic thread here. You dressing up? I have some ideas for cons. Maybe Ecbacc would be down w/a steam presence? I might be able to whip something up this year before making it to the other cons.

@Milton Also dope is

@Sir Milton
Didn't become fully active 'til this week to sign up the PZ account and start the Archival ship. Sent out a few invites to the emails I have at PurpleMag. That ning's where I found the Beyond Victoriana link posted a few comments below (the Asian sister's blog for diverse Steampunk). Found sister Florence there too. Your link doesn't show your page. I'll find you when I log on next *_^

@Sir Landis Take pix please. I know there's a society in my area but have to check the details. Would rather go in a group but might go solo to investigate... maybe *_^

Being creative or innovative is the easy part. The challenge that tends to overwhelm folks of African descent is the one of commerce. Controlling and profiting from the financial, administrative and distribution of those amazing good & services tends to lag behind.  Leaving those with better expertise in these areas to dog it out, exploit and profit. Not to mention over-control.

This is why breaking the "Black On Black" boycott of legal honest Black owned operations in a must!  Once one controls masses of money then comes the control of everything else. 

Where as Black On Black Money will overcome everything negative!

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
