Crazy Dentist

I get that people like to be macho and shoot things, but when big cats, especially lions are injured they turn maneater. What if the hunt was unsuccessful and that lion turned to hunting the elderly and children. He could have volunteered to perform dental work on lions. You know, to keep their teeth healthy to prevent them from going maneater and he could still have shot something (WITH A TRANK GUN). Maybe that should be his community service, not saying he should go to… Continue

Why This Book?

Why The Warrior from Monde? What motivated me to write such a story?

Well, I won’t spoil the novel by going into details, but I’ll hint at things through covering the themes I used to guide my writing. These themes inspired me to write the story in the first place,…

My Pointless Genealogy

My great-great grandfather was a Welshman. Which is incidentally the most boring type of British you can be. They're not known for their fighting, drinking or dry wit (Scottish, Irish and English) respectively. At best I 've inherited the ability to take down armored knights from 200 paces. If you don't get it, Its because the Welsh don't even have a good stereotype. Aaahhh!!!! Where's my longbow?

A new review for The Warrior from Monde!

My last beta reader has just completed my manuscript. He loved the book, and wrote a long, glowing review. I'm on a roll right now! So far, I've had no bad reviews (fingers crossed). Below is a snippet of the review from my last beta reader, Steven Farmer a comedian, actor and independent film screen writer. The full review is loaded with spoilers--sorry, can't share that. Not unless you're an agent or publisher. : )

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.

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.

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.
