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 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…

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…

Damnatio memoriae...

Posted by Reginald L. Goodwin on December 14, 2018 at 5:30am 0 Comments

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.

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.
