Alien Encounters II

My wife and I flew down from Maryland (boy, were our arms tired) to attend Alien Encounters II in the ATL. Last year, we attended "I"; "II" did not disappoint us.

Thursday featured a very moving tribute and discussion at the Hammond's House about L.A. Banks who passed away this summer. Leslie was a phenomenal writer and overall good person. She touched a lot of lives and broke many barriers for speculative fiction writers of color.

Friday, was devoted to…

the comic never got off the ground, but I dig his crazy urban energy and his ability to capture my characters. He did it for free. Dark Horse turned us down. Maybe…

The Missing Finger!

 Many people have found themselves disappointed with the state of what passes as acceptable "black media" today. Ofen times we are portrayed as a loud, raunchy, and otherwise ignorant race of people on conventional television. Sure, there are a few rays of hope (Oprah's Network immediately comes to mind). However, they are certainly not the majority, nor extremely popular.
A substantial contributor to this state, we believe, is a lack in the number of black owned and…

Defenestration by Bob McNeil

 

 

   “You’re a common drug dealer; you’re never going to be anything else in life,” Judge Fairman screamed with murderous rage in his eyes.  Halfway through his tirade, the gavel-wielding sixty-year-old became crimson.  Over the course of his speech, he scratched the top of his baldhead, and then ran his fingers through the collar-long grey hair on the back of his neck.  “Someone could throw your life away; it wouldn’t matter at all.”

   “P-p-please,…

African-American 1950s Comic Books

Hello, everybody!  I managed to catch only a part of The History Detectives last night, but from what I saw, I thought it would make a good, if short blog.

 

Back in around 1952 or so, Fawcett Books published Romance Comic Books. To tie in with this trend and capture a whole new audience, a white man named Roy Ald created and wrote "Negro Romance," a series that had runs of 100,000 issues each. But due to poor sales and other pressures of the times, only 3 issues were ever…

I Know I Don't...

I know I don't post or comment much on this site. That in no way is an indication of how I value being a member of Black Science Fiction Society. From reading forum and blog posts, as well as group posts and coments, I have gained invaluable insight and have been introduced to great writers I would never have encountered if not for this group. I felt I've become a much stronger writer since joining this group. Since I joined, I can give some credit to the Society for getting two short…

Your Community Called... It Wants Your Loyalty Back

Did you know that black people are spending more time on the internet than they do watching television? According to a 2010 African American Media Consumption report submitted to the FCC, 32% of media consumed by the ethnic group comes from the internet, followed by television at 26% and radio at 17%. (so much for Basketball Wives!)



Out of that time spent on the internet, 74% goes to updating a status on social networking sites! People of African Desent… Continue

Game Music and Sound Design (Avid and Podcast)

Did you know that the game industry is swallowing music and sound design artists? Having you're own record label and selling cds out of car are not the only ways to a be major success in music. As game systems and PCs have become more powerful the demand for talented audio engineers and artists have went through the roof! When you think about it, video games would be pretty bad if there were no sound in them. The beautiful score in the…

CHALLENGE!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by KENNETH E JAMES on November 18, 2017 at 12:53pm 0 Comments

That's right i said it Challenge for the week if you are an Artist,Writer, whatever the case. If you are a writer do 10 Pages a day for the next week and prove it by Saturday the 25th. That is 70 pages by one week. Now here is the caveat you have to do it in the time frame of your normal day if you cant than try using an hour by hour schedule to see what you are doing that is wasting some time. Nuff said we are all adults here we go!

BLACK PANTHER'S QUEST

Posted by Geoff Thorne on November 16, 2017 at 11:00pm 2 Comments

okay.



It's been a while so i think is should start out with this.

Next year, in addition to what we all expect to be the miraculous and life-changing BLACK PANTHER feature film, there will also be a new version of the Marvel animated AVENGERS series, featuring Black Panther as well.

When I say "feature" I really mean "focus on" because this next season is so much about Black Panther that they retitled the show to make it clear.

For four seasons the show was called MARVEL'S AVENGERS: ASSEMBLE. NEXT season it will be called MARVEL'S AVENGERS: BLACK PANTHER'S QUEST.

I'm mentioning it here for two reasons.

1) Folks around here need to watch the hell out of this show. It's a totally different vibe than what's gone before on these TV series.

2) The reason I know this is because I'm the head writer. I'm not legally allowed to say anything more than this at this time.

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.
