Alternate world stories are fun to do but also give off hints of what's going on in the author's mind. A classic story like Come the Jubilee set in an divided America where the South won the Civil War doesn't give off the fish odor of a Newt Gringich penned opus where Lee won at Gettysburg. An anthology Hitler Triumphant says thatwould of been a monumental disaster. But I'm sure there's one it would be the best thing to happen since Taco Bell stayed open past midnight.

Thanks for the B'day tap bro man. I appreciate it. Are you setting your story in the past realistic. past magical, or in another place?

These are the works of author Chester Himes who was a top notch author not just of crime dramas but works of social commentary; If He Hollers Let Him Go is set in a WWII shipping yard and exposes the hypocrisy of the Arsenal of Democracy. You should be able to find his works in the neighborhood library. I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy them. Three were made into movies Cotton Comes To Harlem, Come Back Charleston Blue, and For the Love of ErmaBelle which had a name change I can't think of right now but had Robin Givens looking nice n' nasty as the seductress
and Forrest Whittaker as her mark. The other two films were made in 70 and 72
respectively, and starred as the detective heroes Coffin Ed and Gravedigger Jones
Godfrey Cambridge and Raymond St. Jacques. They are much harder characters in the novels though.

Damnatio memoriae...

Posted by Reginald L. Goodwin on December 14, 2018 at 5:30am 0 Comments

Topics: Civics, Existentialism, Humor, Politics

Damnatio memoriae is a modern Latin phrase meaning "condemnation of memory", i.e., that a person is to be excluded from official accounts. There are and have been many routes to damnatio, including the destruction of depictions, the removal of names from inscriptions and documents, and even large-scale rewritings of history.

In Latin, the term damnatio…

The Perfect Fluid...

Posted by Reginald L. Goodwin on December 11, 2018 at 5:30am 0 Comments

If collisions between small projectiles -- protons (p), deuterons (d), and helium-3 nuclei (3He) -- and gold nuclei (Au) create tiny hot spots of quark-gluon plasma, the pattern of particles picked up by the detector should retain some 'memory' of each projectile's initial shape. Measurements from the PHENIX experiment match these predictions with very strong correlations between the initial geometry and the final flow patterns.

Peace. As the post title says, (inspired by Rakim's greatest opening lines), this marks somewhat of a return. I have not posted in a long while, so here I am. I hope everyone whom I have not communicated with; are doing well. 

I will be checking in more often than not.

Peace.

The Diversity Track & Black Science Fiction Society Back For Dragoncon 2019

I just got news this week that the Diversity Track will be back for 2019 at DragonCon. I'm excited to be invited back for another groundbreaking event. Everyone associated with the first one this year knocked it out of the park! I could not ask for better volunteers, guests, photographers, moderators and participants.

Assault of the Mainstream

Posted by Turtel Onli on December 6, 2018 at 8:10am 1 Comment

Now that the Mainstream has tried and failed to take the life force outta the growing indie-Black age movement with its "afro-futuristic" blockbuster along with its here today-gone tomorrow great token Hero of Harlem, who among us is really about winning at  this challenge and profiting from the opportunities it presents?

Their best efforts to corner and control the Black Age is my proof that we are actually winning in this war for minds and market shares.....inspite of addictive  brand loyalty...the Black On Black boycott....and culturally based anti-intellectualisms.  I often present on panels.....over the years since 1992....at San Diego,,,,,Wizards.......C2E2.....on the Black Age or diversity....  Usually with a lame unprofessional uninformed person in charge.  Each time some hater stands up to taut how racist the Black Age is and how he of she gets so much more outta Manga/Anime'.

Sort of like all of the Black folks that spent 8 years complaining about…

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

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.
