My wife and I saw the movie "Knowing" with Nicholas Cage. Special effects were great, but the ending was all wrong in my opinion. What do you think?

Just a little fun with the main character of my soon to be published book: The Serpent Cult
I take a deep breath, fill my lungs deep, and feel my tense pectorals stretch over my ribs. Then I let it out slow, pushing it through clenched teeth, and let my shoulders settled back into place. It helps, my mind is quiet and I begin to focus. Focus is of the utmost importance. Otherwise I lose and Rock City falls.
The rotten floor boards push up against my… Continue

I started my fifth manuscript today. It is different than the four books I wrote for the Osguards series. I'm trying to stretch my talent on this one and see what I can do. I don't want to say too much right now...not until I have a good portion of the manucript committed to paper. But let me tell you that it is tough switching gears and writing about another world after I've spent almost eight years perfecting the world I have written for the Osguards. I guess my question to the group is, 'How… Continue

My name is Malcolm Petteway and I'm new to the group. It is wonderful to network with other Black Science Fiction fans. I am a up and coming science fiction author, who has written four novels and published three of them through the "small press" Iuniverse. Presently, my novels are not available while I again search for a traditional publisher.
Let me tell you my first search for a traditional publisher was frustrating. All the rejection notices had the same theme; 'there… Continue

I'm new to the group and it's a good feeling to find folks "like me". One of the best things about this group is that I'll have others to bounce some ideas of off. Mrs. Morgan can only take so much (she is not into sci-fi :-)
I've been sitting on a story I started about six years ago. I would like to finish it, but I'm really in need of some feedback. The gist of the story is that Denmark Vesey's planned revolt was not betrayed. Not only did it go on, but it was wildly successful. In… Continue

Last night's episode of Lost
was my favorite of the series so far. I have yet to discuss it here because it's such a complex television show and I wouldn't even know where to start, though I'm sure if you ask some of its more avid fans, they might say otherwise.
For me, Lost's
appeal is its storytelling. Yes, Evangeline Lily is cute, yes, Terry O'Quinn can act his ass off, and yes, Harold Perrineau is versatile as hell, but it's the storytelling that gets me. It… Continue

As promised many moons ago, I am going to start posting some of my short stories and scraps. Please let me know what you think.
Irony by VD DeVau...
Ronnie ate the apple in small deliberate bites. Her stomach clinched and released with each swallow. It didn’t taste like much, but she wasn’t used to eating. Funny things you can stop getting used to doing.
Her arms ached and her legs were jelly when she tried to get up off the cot. Some tubing in her nose kept… Continue

My man is everything a woman could dream.
Dedicated, hard working, strong.
I bear my soul to him.
With him I have no reason to fear anything.
My rock, strength, fortress.
He is my protector.
The love in his eyes exsists only for me.
Sensual, penetrating, yet vunerable.
I am his Queen.
He is the epitome of what a real man should be.
Masculine, loving, faithful.
His spirit is beautiful.

Inside I feel the walls closing in.
Rapidly. A tragedy. Loves made at me.
Emptiness Resides where love used to be.
Put my soul at ease. I can't conceive you with out me. We're meant to be.
But you don't see.
The pain inside is consuming me.
And suddenly what used to be is a memory that's haunting me. Love's taunting me.
I don't beleive you want to leave.
I realize rejection has chosen me.
It's controlling me. Showing me… Continue

Beautiful you were.
Innocent and oblivious to the harsh world around you.
Such a happy and carefree soul should never be made to suffer for one's wordly conflicts.
But I, in a destructive rage,
So unfairly deprived you of your life
Which was used only to beautify this cold, dark place.
So it is with much remorse that I pray for deliverance
For the Soul of the Yellow Butterfly.
