The Battle Roar of Sekhmet

Egypt, 1350 BC

I entered the sanctuary area at the back of our hut with a bowl of gazelle meat. Beside me my niece, little Nebet, hugged her miniature drum as if it were a doll. The likenesses of our forefathers and mothers watched our passage with painted eyes, their altars adorned with weapons and the gold flies their valor had earned them in life. But it was the gilded likeness of Sekhmet, she of the lion mask and blood-dyed gown, who awaited our arrival against the…

Lucky Me

Made it to the store and back in record time to catch a great comedy special. Time dilation must have caused it. Yeah. That's how physics works.

Wait Wait, Speculate

After the Afrofuturism Symposium at Clark Atlanta this Monday, I really began to realize just how on point I was with my research interests. I've been interested in the Black Speculative Arts for as long as I can remember, and now that I'm in graduate school I am truly seeing how important they are. Click…

Pondering my character - Nero

The one scribing these words falsely believes that it is she who created me. On the contrary, it was by my choosing that she came to know of my existence, and to experience one of my tales. I’ve walked with her for many years. My very existence is a driving force in your world. And when your time is spent, and the last grain floats towards eternity, it is I who comes to collect.

I have many names, San le Muerte, Reaper, Death. Though I’ve grown fond of the monnicer this scribe…

Enter the S.Y.P.H.E.N.

I like filmed Science Fiction. At some point in those stories, that cool Sci-Fi blue (I, ROBOT poster) will emerge onto the screen and man, I just settle back and enjoy the show. It's not often that African-Americans get to battle the forces of the unknown not just in Sci-Fi, but Fantasy and Horror as well. Combining those two threads and in my mind's eye, that wonderful entity called, imagination, I wrote a screenplay based on a concept that was originally set in the 1800s. I wanted…

The Perfect Fluid...

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.

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.
