influences

The kreative Ka was manifested in our family. On my dad's side I watched my cousins roll butcher paper down the hallway and draw from one end to the other, war scenes, airplane dog fights, sieges, tank battles. My mom drew our hands and feet as babes part of a mail-order art course but never finished. Me, I didn't draw much but wanted to and not till I saw something worth drawing. Strange how life is, didn't take drawing seriously till I saw a custom home show on TV and found a magazine with… Continue

Forsaken

The sky was darkened by steel-grey clouds, running toward the horizon's setting sun, as if to extinguish its light on this scene of urban justice. The scaffold, hastily erected seemed eerily at peace in this riotous sky, blood red near the edges like a vein opening and flowing into an nearby gutter. Angry flashes of lightning as a storm, riding a hot desert wind blew in from the west, drying the mouths of the onlookers,…

Scrapped scene from my "Medjay" story

Below is a scene which was originally going to be the opening scene of my "Medjay" story, but I've decided to scrap it for reasons explained at the bottom of this post. Hopefully people will still enjoy it...

***

A cool nocturnal wind howled across the city of Waset in southern Kemet. Most of the people had retired to their mudbrick homes for the night, but their defenders, the warriors known as Medjay, still stirred. They either patrolled the torch-lit streets or guarded…

Tyler's Goddess: The Conclusion!

The twin swords of the Goddess formed a lethal duet, singing a song of blood and slaughter.  The shrieks of dying Skags was the chorus and the Goddess provided the deadly direction in this violent symphony of combat.  Skag infantry had erected ladders along the embankment to facilitate their ascent up the sloping earthwork.  Norlunder arrows exacted a steep toll among the foot soldiers.  But the latter’s numbers compensated and before long Skags and humans were locked in struggle atop the…

The Self-Publishing Coalition

Have you ever noticed after all you and your team's hard work and money put up for your projects it seems only your distributor profits while you may be lucky to break even? There's a reason for that. You have neither the knowledge or control over the means of creating the actual books, DVD's, protecting the…

MODOC - Part 18 - Conquered



The Other's fliers finally cross the lunon of the conqueror on a road eighty miles from its main body. The central organism had sat still and cooled. It resembled a large boulder on the side of the road. Native animals stayed away from the strange metallic smell of the Other as it vented steam and waited. The lunon was fresh and the trail was less…

Attribute Challenge Day 22: Elevator

Hello everyone,

 

I pray all is well. Normally I post for the attribute challenge at www.rsquaredcomicz.com, but WordPress is currently experiencing technical difficulties. Today's attribute is God and Jesus as elevators...

 

One of things I've been noticing more and more about my Christian walk is that things always work out for the better when I put God at the forefront. Sometimes,…

The Power of Black Superheroes

“The most important thing that Black Superheroes do is help African people to see themselves as powerful and beautiful,” says comic book creator Akinseye Brown. Brown is the creator and owner of Sokoya Comics whose mission, since its inception in 2006, is to create the best stories and characters within African science-fiction / Black sci-fi. When asked what he means by the term “African science-fiction,” Brown describes it as:



“It is simply good storytelling whose narrative uses… Continue

Tyler's Goddess: Part Three

Darkness settled like a dusty quilt across the land.  Save for a watch detail patrolling the newly erected embankment along the perimeter, the rest of the village was quiescent.  Until shouting upset the stillness, yanking Tyler out of his slumber.  Sleep would wait.  Tyler emerged from the small dwelling the Goddess had provided for him, making a beeline toward the commotion.

            A crowd of Norlunders gathered in front of a modest barn shaped structure that was the temple of…

Still on the run, Dillon and Kris Quinlan take refuge in the quaint village of Numby Dell. Unfortunately, Chew Mi is waiting for them. Her name may be a joke but she most certainly is not!

Author turns down $500,000 deal to self-publish

I saw this post mentioned on Twitter and decided to check it out. It's a discussion between bestselling thriller novelist Barry Eisler and Joe Konrath. The beginning came about from Eisler's rejection of a half a million dollar book deal in order to self-publish. It's rather lengthy, but you can read it here:

GMO

An unprepossessing four-by-four rumbles down a dirt road, encrusted with the debris of too many miles, past too many farms and would not likely be considered the harbinger of the end of the world. Its driver, an older gentleman, hard in his way, like the soil he has worked for five decades, strong and silent, offers up only a tiny groan as he steps from the vehicle after arriving…

Tyler's Goddess: Part Two

“Thank you, Tyler Worthington.”

            Tyler glanced up to see the statuesque blond Goddess standing over him.  He rose.  “No need to thank me, since I had no choice but to defend myself.”

            “Yes, but you also defended others and you saved lives.  You are truly a great warrior.”

            Tyler stared at the woman who called herself Goddess, and had to wonder if there was an inkling of truth to the claim.  She looked as fresh as if she had just stepped…

Tyler's Goddess: Part One

They dragged the prisoner deep into the village and tossed him at the Goddess’ feet like a sack of tubers.  The mob shouted and screamed and spat in animalistic displays of wild release.  Voices calling for the prisoner’s death were augmented by calls urging the Goddess to give her divine sanction.  A foot lashed out from the mob, striking the prisoner in the side.  The prisoner gasped in pain and contracted into a fetal ball.

            Someone else approached the prisoner with a…

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.

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.
