Nalo Hopkinson - Bid on getting your name in an upcoming novel of hers!

My fiance and I are running for TAFF, the Trans-Atlantic Fan Fund. As a fundraiser for the fund, we got together with our fellow candidate, Frank Wu, and organized a few auctions for the fan fund.



I asked a number of authors I know to donate "Tuclerizations" to the auction - to offer to use the name of the fan who wins the auction in an upcoming novel or short story. I am very excited that Nalo… Continue

Okay. First things first, this post is going to include a big phat SPOILER. So this is your official SPOILER alert. If you don't want to hear about the ending of this movie, stop reading, go away, get out of here now! After this however, abandon all ye hope! So...moving on...



Saw this flick over the Thankstaking holidays, part of family ritual and my Pops loves this kind of thing. Wasn't going to see it because I just thought it'd be a silly blockbuster--even though the apocalyptic… Continue

I'M BACK

I've been "away" for a while, primarily because an internet glitch prevented me from connecting with BSFS or any of my other ning groups. Thankfully, the problem has been fixed, and you'll be seeing a lot more activity from me here in the future.



As far as news goes, I've recently finished the first draft of my second volume of Dossouye's adventures. Now, it's polishing time.



Also, I've just posted a blog entry about Dossouye's war-bull, Gbo, at my website,… Continue

300 Spartans, 1 Million Persians & The Altering of History

*Always like combining speculative fiction & politics--two of my favorite things. Wrote this review/analysis originally back in 2007, but since there's word they're making a sequel for 300 (why gods!?! why?!?), thought it'd be relevant anyway...





written March 2007



So I saw 300 last week. Driven by action, the movie had… Continue

Check out My Short Story

My short story, "My Soul to Free" has been published by Expanded Horizons. This one is very special to me, as it was inspired by my trip home to Sierra Leone - tracing my ancestry, going home and writing this story - life's truly a journey.

Ain't The Twenty-First Century Fun?

Hearing what that Fat sack of festering feces ( Rush Limpburger) burbled on the propaganda network about President Obama and his appearance at the final coming home at Dover AFB of the Afghan War's dead, and the

fact that none, zero, nein, there callled him out on it, fills me with a disgust. The mainstream news media allows such hatewhippers as Limperoo to getaway with this by allowing them to mask themselves with "political entertainers." They held themselves shocked with the same froth… Continue

A Time Traveller's Career Advice

Reasonable men adjust themselves to their environment. Unreasonable men attempt to change their environment to suit themselves. Therefore all progress is the work of unreasonable men.

-- George Bernard Shaw



History is often unkind to unreasonable men. But I also know that nothing is every accomplished by reasonable men. They are content with the status quo. They exploit and profit on the frailties of the human condition without making any changes to improve that… Continue

Tunable Quantum States...

Posted by Reginald L. Goodwin on September 18, 2018 at 5:30am 0 Comments

When the researchers turn an external magnetic field in different directions (indicated with arrows), they change the orientation of the linear electron flow above the kagome (six-fold) magnet, as seen in these electron wave interference patterns on the surface of a topological quantum kagome magnet. Each pattern is created by a particular direction of the external magnetic field applied on the sample.

Republicans: Founded in 1854 by anti-slavery expansion activists and modernizers, the Republican Party quickly surpassed the Whig Party as the principal opposition to the Democratic Party. In 1860, it came to power with the election of Abraham Lincoln to the presidency. The party presided over the American Civil War and Reconstruction and was harried by internal factions and scandals toward the end of the 19th century. Today, the party supports a conservative platform (from an American political perspective), with further foundations in supply-side fiscal policies,…

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.
