Ethiopian Space Project (what do you think so far)

It was dawn in the Danakil desert. The sun rose above Erta Ale. Most people thought it was unwise to build a space aircraft launching facility near an active volcano, but other than the volcano the location was perfect. The landscape was mostly flat, and there was only a small local population because it was near an active volcano. The wild life weren’t a problem either. The Ostriches, Gazelles, and African Wild Asses lived as if the space center wasn’t even there.

Though still this would… Continue

The Uses and Misuses of "Inspiration"

This was an article I originally wrote for Christian Fiction Factor but it has some good points that fit spec-fic writers also.



The Uses and Misuses of Inspiration.

Carole McDonnell



“The Lord gave me this idea.”



How often I’ve heard a new writer say this? Often, this sentence preceded great stories. But just as often it introduced writings that were so half-baked I found myself searching for a tactful way to say “Please don’t blame the Lord for… Continue

intergalactic games (first story i ever wrote, tried to get it published at mindflights thats why it had so much religon, i know it has quite a few grammar errors but tell me what you think)

Gary stood at the starting line of the 400 meter dash event of the intergalactic games. On the staggered starting line ready to race him were some of the greatest athletes in the universe. This among other variables had him wondering what the hell he was doing there.

In the other lanes stood other beings that differed greatly than those Gary had been accustomed to on earth. First there was a Tigon in the first lane. The mere size of the Tigon intimidated Gary. Tigons were extremely strong… Continue

PRYA KAYLERA LAKEFOLK



Half way down he saw the shadow leaping at him but being in freefall there was nothing he could do. The collision was powerful, catching him midsection and knocking the wind out of him. The attacker hit him with enough power and momentum behind him to reverse Max’s course. At first he was certain they would both fall all the way to the ground which, considering how high he had ascended the Downhills rooftops already, it would be quite a ways down. His body… Continue

FEDERATIONS

EDITED BY JOHN JOSEPH ADAMS





From Star Trek to Star Wars, from Dune to Foundation, science fiction has a rich history of exploring the idea of vast intergalactic societies, and the challenges facing those living in or trying to manage such societies. The stories in Federations will continue that tradition.



What are the social/religious/environmental/technological implications of living in such a vast society? What happens when expansionist tendencies on a galactic… Continue

Praise for the Minister

A few years back, I saw several advertisements for a book with a decidedly unique title: “The Coyote Kings of the Space-Age Bachelor Pad,” by an author named Minister Faust. It was published by Del Rey Books, and getting heavy promotion. Minister Faust, by all indications, was a black writer and also a Canadian. I’m a Canadian, too, by naturalization rather than birth.



Always on the lookout for new additions to the ranks of black science-fiction and fantasy writers, I quickly got… Continue

I flinch at the tiny shards of ice that scrape against my face and shut my eyes tight until the wind changes direction. When I open them I see that she has closed her eyes again as well. It’s almost like she’s sleeping. Naked except for her nightgown, her supple form could be lying in plush white bed covers. Radiant skin stands out in stark contrast to the snow. Soft legs rise out like tranquil islands in a white sea, undisturbed by the harshness of… Continue

The Dawn of the BLACK Superheros: Prologue

RECKONING





The snow covering the forest ground reflected the moon light, keeping the black of night at bay long after sundown. The night was clear after the winter storm, and the snow covered everything. It had been a fairly gusty storm so the snow found its way everywhere, over rocks, over trees, and even under their sheltering branches. The moonlight, consequently, found itself everywhere, lighting up the park to the point where one could see quite clearly for nearly a… Continue

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.
