Hello

I've been a member here for awhile, but this is the first time that I am actually posting. I am so excited to find a Africana Community that is focused on science fiction because I have always loved Science Fiction and Fantasy and have always been so disappointed that none of my favorite characters have ever looked like me.

 

My dream is to write science fiction books, I'm particularly interested in YA novels and I am hoping to meet fellow YA writers who I can dialogue…

Metal Organism Designed only for Cuddling - Part 2 - Planetary Invasion

I love/hate my life

I love/hate my life, it moves too fast and I can't sort out how I stand in it. The many things I can do, I am not expert at any and have no expressed focus on anything. I say I am an artist but my art is incomplete sketches. I have visions I can not realize in reality. It is like being in a motion picture on TV and only the commercials are real.



I am laying there, the parade of images all converge, a history of others visions and amusements. I mix them and blend them and redefine… Continue

Finally!

After a nearly four year hiatus and months of writing, the first draft of "A Book of Dragon's Teeth" is done! Right now I'm finishing up the transcription from the handwritten version to an electronic friendly one, but the hard part's over. I'll take about a month off to work on artwork and then throw a solid month in on rewrites. After that, I'll turn it over to my test readers and an Editor by which it will then go off to the publishing mill. So a summer release in 2011 is looking pretty… Continue

750 Exercise: The Aspen Waifs Part 2

     I must have fallen asleep because the next thing I know it's morning, or more correctly, time for me to get up.  There is no morning here.  And in fact, I probably work a night shift.  I have an hour to get ready and get food.  I press the extender on my bunk, which draws it out from the hole in the wall then I make my way slowly to my locker to grab my jumpsuit and check for news updates.  Those…

750 Exercise: The Aspen Waifs

       Have you any idea of how deadly still the air is aboard a space vessel?  Even when doors open, the air doesn't seem to move itself.  There are noticeable pressure changes sometime even, but the air stays absolutely still.  This bothered me more than anything else about the large space vessel, the Aspen.  Long after I got use to the silent hum of the engines and the gravitational compensator and even…

3D printing the future

Posted by ARCELIUS SCOTT on August 15, 2018 at 11:30am 0 Comments

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/114240903/drawns-3d-printed-range-of-design-furniture?ref=discovery&ref=discovery&term=3d%20printed

As of today Spacefans, the link above shows my new goal for my future in the 3D printing industry. 3D print farms are on the agenda for us to build our own, create our own, and own our own manufacturing methods and processes. After we meet the goal of 3D print farms, we should most definitely set our sights on using industrial articulating robots to "scale up" the manufacturing capability within the community.

A robot can cost anywhere between $25,000 and $100,000 but the industrious entrepreneur should be able to find one on the lower end of the spectrum. I'm not here to sell robots, just here to share vision with…

Finding your favorite indie Black Age products?

Posted by Turtel Onli on August 14, 2018 at 7:52am 1 Comment

At a time when the indie Black Age of Comics movement is now nation wide with indie conventions in Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, New York and San Francisco, a question emerges.  Where do you find a dedicated spinning rack of indie produced / published Black Age products?  Hmmmm?  No where except Chicago at the Du Sable Museum and the urban internet cafe' Copy Cat.  In each of the other markets listed, no rack.  Not even where there is a Black owned comic book store.  The internet alone will not reach the under served market.

This is a great opportunity & challenge foe legal honest industrious folks.  To market and distribute the Black Age of Comics indie products.

OK..... you say were the regular stores contacted?  Of course. ONLI STUDIOS even offered them spinning racks.  They…

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.
