I just started a project called SFbios.com, which will be collecting bios by and about fans and pros which a lot of cons publish in our program books or souvenir books.  Only collecting attributed bios and posting them with permission of the authors.  If you work on or attend a con that publishes that sort of thing and would like to help, please let me know.

STORY STRUCTURE: Five Key Turning or Plot Points of a Successful Story

Stories are not rocket science. They are simple and all consist of the same basic principles. It may not be the easiest thing to write a story without pulling your hair (or weave) out, but the story itself is elementary. There are only three components typically found in mainstream literature and film:…

Guest Blog: The Importance of Multiculturalism in Fiction

I have to begin by saying the word multiculturalism makes me uncomfortable, especially when what we’re talking about is inclusion of people in fiction who come from the same country. It does seem a little sad that in 2015 many in America still haven’t been able to get past skin color, sexual orientation, and racial ancestry, especially in terms of…

The Good Lie

Watched this movie for the fourth or fifth time last night. It follows the journey of a group of siblings as they trek through the desert to Kenya after their village is destroyed by Janjaweed, their subsequent stay at a refugee camp and their eventual resettlement in America.

The movie captures their wonder and awe at the trappings of modern society and their confusion while learning its customs. This is a classic fish out of water story,but through it is an undercurrent of immense… Continue

Weekly Art Stream

Hello all!

Now that things have settled down and I pretty much have a locked schedule with my classes and school work, I have decided to do weekly art streams! What are art streams? Art streams are a gathering where people can hang out, chat and watch people draw. It's just a fun activity for folks that are involved.

So with that, I will be doing weekly art streams about 2-3 times a week. The schedule is as follows:

Monday: 8pm -…

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.
