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

2012- Brief Review & a Question about the Ending

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

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...

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

Black Prophets

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

Traditional vs Self-published

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

Story submission for the My Africa Diaspora short story contest.

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!!

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.
