The plant Landisium cura was an annual plant native to the West African island of Madagascar. The plant
was known for its ability to cure the common cold. The plant produced extremely high amounts of
vitamins C and D which have been proven to combat the common cold. It survived in the gently acidic high
organic matter soils of the Madagascar tropical rainforest.

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'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

*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
(why gods!?! why?!?), thought it'd be relevant anyway...

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.

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

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

I am going to make the rather radical statement that Science Fiction as a genre is "modern" prophesy. It is prophetic because it states with great accuracy who men and women will react when the changes caused by new technologies alter our environment. Whether it be faster-than-light space travel, meeting new species, or facing god-like decisions that new technology made possible.
If you doubt the importance of Sci-Fi in the creation of prophecy all you have to do is look at history.… Continue

If you know what DIAMOND PREVIEWS is, our book, PRODIGAL: EGG OF FIRST LIGHT will be soliceted there in NOVEMBER.
if you don't know what PREVIEWS is, it's the catalogue retailers use to determine which comics they will be buying. It's three months ahead so, if you want your local store to carry our book, you have to tell them next month to order it.
I hope you will. Duh.

We at ONLI STUDIOS are glad to say that "BLACK AGE XII" was a success from every point of view. It opened doors, built bridges, and entertained all who were there. I have always maintained that the Black Age was the most independent movement in the game. Resistance is futile. We rock! We come! We conquer!
We have pioneered a complete genre and support system all in one. It is no mystery that the growth area of Sci-fi, graphic novels, and games will run right through the Black Age. I… Continue

Last week I became embroiled in this hot debate over whether it was prudent for authors to self-publish vs. going through the traditional publishing route. The debate was spirited, but it did bring to light the prevailing thought among many why self-publishers are loathed in the writing community. First of all, many I debated referred to the self-publishing business as vanity press and not small press or even self-publishing. This in itself indicates their position that those who self-publish… Continue

I am in the process of creating a "Friends of Kandake" page on my website so I was wondering if any of you would be interested in posting links to your blogs, interviews, websites, bookstores, etc. It's just an additional way to share your links with the public. If anyone's interested, send me your banner or link in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will announce the launch of the page as soon as it's completed. Thank you!

I thought I'd give everyone a peek at the story that I'll be submitting to the My Africa Diaspoa short story contest. I really had to tone down the violence in this one. Kind of like a crackhead being required to do half a pipe. LOLOLOLOL!!
Ahem...anyway, I hope you enjoy the story!

I just now became aware (thanks to Milton Davis) of the existence of an Imaro Fan Club on Facebook. Here's the link: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=11182358021.
If anyone on BSFS wants to swell the ranks over there, feel free.
And be sure to check out the interview I did of Milton on my website, www.charlessaunderswriter.com. The Griot tells all!

Bottom line Up Front (BLUF): I released the first book, Homecoming, of my science fiction series Osguards: Guardians of the Universe on 8 Oct 09 through CreateSpace.com. This blog is to respond to Veronica Henry’s question on how I liked dealing with CreateSpace.com.
I have published three of the four books prior with Iuniverse.com. I thank Iuniverse for extending the opportunity to me, but I felt like I was doing all the work and they were reaping all the benefits. Even though I… Continue
