Outpost: The Conclusion

The remaining two days saw Alec active throughout the outpost, occupying himself with repairs large and small. He was checking a power converter in a reactor chamber when the compu-aid’s voice broke his concentration.


Hostile craft of Jepthala design have breached the outer boundary marker. ETA 17 hours.


Alec stopped what he was doing, placed his tools back into his pouch, and climbed into the…

The Aspect War - Chapter 2

War laughed.



The sound was discordant with the scene of blood and eviscerated corpses all around him. The god of War stood over a battlefield and enjoyed the early morning smell of charred flesh and destruction. The bitter stench of brimstone and gunpowder wafted on the morning breeze, tingling his nostrils and reminding him of battles in other places and other times, each as memorable, in their own way, their signature of violence, unique in that moment. He surveyed the landscape… Continue

Nearing Completion....

Two chapters left to go on the latest 'Tale from the Long Road'. After a nearly four-year hiatus from novel writing, 'A Book of Dragon's Teeth' is almost done. Amazing how the illness of a family member can sap the creativity right out of you. But I can attest to the irritation of having an idea or vision that won't go away is good motivation to finish what you start! Pending, Editing and Artwork the projected window for release is early 2011.

Outpost: Part Two

Five minutes later, a sobered up commander stepped onto the outpost’s command-control deck. The centrally placed deck was no larger than Alec’s own quarters. The CC was empty save for a console, a chair and a half dome hovering above the chair, suspended by a thin support tube. A sub dermal needle embedded just beneath Alec’s right ear erased his intoxication. But, until Alec had taken his seat and inserted his head into the dome, he still felt groggy. The dome cleared the fog away, and…

Hello all!

I just joined the BSFS after a fellow writer-producer recommended it. Looks like a lively place and I believe it will be a good give and take environment. Forgive me if I haven't immediately answered your friend requests as I am still 'looking around'. Again, thanks for letting me come 'aboard'.

Outpost: Part One

Alec Dishman ran a hand down his jaw feeling the coarse texture of a shadow that teetered on the verge of full-blown growth. He studied himself in the mirror. Too much of that growth was peppered with white, which provided an increasingly striking contrast to the dark brown hue of Alec’s skin. While not exactly a spring chicken, Alec was far removed from retirement age by the standards of United Defense. No. Alec lowered his head, weariness draping a demoralizing shawl across his…

Proximity!

As Ralph opened the door to go get the newspaper, he stood for a moment and yawned. He also admired the pulsing gelatinous substance covering his mail and newspaper boxes and thought nothing of it, until he stopped.

Frozen in his tracks; sudden horror and terror gripped his already weakened heart, the triple bypass was working. At least it was until this very moment. He decided he no longer wanted the morning paper and slowly, begun to…

BEWARE

Xia had killed eight flies, and was hunting for the ninth, when she felt the presence behind her. Her back stiffened involuntarily as The Other crept closer. She forced herself to relax and ignore what was

taking place behind her, but her tight grip on the rolled-up magazine

she was using as a fly swatter gave her true feelings away. She inhaled

deeply and squinted, sending ghostly fingers searching for the

consciousness of the missing fly. Slowly, she…

Reckoning part 1

When The Shadow passed over the sun, Nzinga Black lifted her eyes from the doodles in her math notebook and directed then toward the window. She could see the harbor from her seat; something was happening

on the water. Relief and foreboding filled her heart.



Death is coming.



The bell rang, signaling the end of class. Slowly, she gathered her things. Textbook. Notebook. Pencil case. These she slid into her purple…

Afro-futurism: A Tradition of Black Science Fiction

When people hear the term science fiction, it conjures up images of future settings and technology far beyond what can be imagined today. The homicidal robots of Battlestar Galactica and the vast spaceships of Star Trek

are some of what typifies this type of entertainment. While science

fiction is very visible and much of it is popularized, elements of it

remain a niche genre. One of those elements is Afro-futurism.

What is that you may ask?…

He sat at his desk, woozy. He tried to move, his arms unresponsive. He searched for help, moving into the aisle in his swivel chair only to find all his coworkers had abandoned him. Was he being drugged? If so, it was the simplest scene he could imagine.Whoever was trying this was extremely stupid or extremely powerful. He'd find out soon enough.

Call for abstracts for "Images of Blackness in Graphic Novels"

CFP: Images of Blackness in Graphic Novels, Past and Future (Extension to 3/31/18)

by Brian Yates

This edited volume will offer an opportunity for authors to investigate the ways in which blackness is reimagined in both mainstream and independent comics. Specifically, I propose responding to the following questions: What are the ways in which heroism is redefined by black characters? How are black futures reimagined? What gendered arguments are made through this medium? What are the challenges in presenting to black audiences in this largely white genre? How do the creators depict the continent of Africa and/or communities in the African Diaspora? How are black bodies presented in graphic comics and novels? Finally, how are themes of social justice specific to black communities presented in this…

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

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.
