The Baartman Bag, Part III

I don’t have much time. Voices echo in the hall. I glance around the room, my gaze settling on the cabinet. My hand trembles as I open it. Yandi’s rubbing alcohol is the first thing I see, perched next to a bottle of cleaning solution and dirty rags. I reach for the alcohol and unscrew the cap, careful not to…

Cover Reveal for Book II: THE BOY in The Sanctum Trilogy

It's finally here - April 30th - cover reveal day for THE BOY.

For those of you who don't know me yet, I'm developing a paranormal trilogy called The Sanctum and late last year, published the first book in the trilogy, called THE GIRL. Next month, I'm going to publish book two, called THE BOY. To say I'm thrilled is an understatement. Anyway...

Ever since I got this baby in my hands, I've been humming with excitement, just waiting to share it with…

Doing Commissions!

Hey BSFS! 



For those of you who know me, you know that not only do I write sci-fi and fantasy, but I also do artwork -most of it being of characters and places in my stories.  If you check out some of the picture postings on my page, you'll see some of my work, and if you've been following my webcomic, Wild Space Saga, then you've gotten a pretty good taste of it.  



So, I'm writing this because I'm…

The Baartman Bag Video Trailer



Many authors create video trailers to promote their books. I created a trailer to spread the word about "The Baartman Bag," a short story I'm offering as a free download. I want to engage as many readers as possible about the issues black women face -- invisibility, hair, rage, identity, shadism. Because speculative fiction is my thing, the video embodies the creepy, the bizarre and the provocative. Thanks for sharing your…

See previous: "Weaponized Pseudoscience" yesterday. Quoting part of the post: "we're in the aftermath of 'created realities,' and I fear this self-willed ignorance of science is slowly unraveling our nation." We are the sum of the stories we tell of ourselves, some noble; some salacious; some…

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...

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 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.
