EarthSquadron.com - January 20, 2008

Hello everyone,

Earth Squadron is steadily working towards our goals with the project. However, due to the economic downturn the action figure has been put on hold for several months. It will definitely be complete during the summer. The storyline is complete with new additions to the ever growing universe. Even with the setbacks we’ve come to understand that everything happens for a reason. We’ve been privy to some new software that we are in the process of mastering which will increase… Continue

I'm dancing on my toes.....

I'm watching Obama take office, and before he even stepped onto the dais, I was rocking my feet like the African women from Kenya to Nigeria, who move their hips, ushering in the elements and pushing power forward through their arms and the ululations they call with tongue and teeth. A martini glass in my hand, and hope in my heart, I'm thinkin', "Damn, this is a new day."



Although I know Obama isn't as progressive as I want him to be, game peeps game when it comes to this historic… Continue

IMARO: THE TRAIL OF BOHU IS IN THE HOUSE!!!

The message is clear: you can’t keep an Ilyassai down. Imaro is back, bigger and badder than ever. The third volume of his larger-than-life adventures – “Imaro: The Trail of Bohu” – is now available at www.lulu.com. You can read an excerpt from it in the Discussions section of the Sword and Soul group on this site.



I have two people to thank for helping me to keep Imaro in print after the setback the series suffered in 2007. The first is Brother Uraeus, who started the publishing… Continue

POLITICAL CONVERGENCE

This is an Op-Ed article I had published in a local newspaper last week. Given its subject matter, I think it remains relevant.



Rare Convergence in Political History Rings in New Year



Much has been written and said about the historical significance of Barack Obama’s victory in the recent U.S. presidential election. The event deserves all those words and more, for when Obama takes the oath of office during his Jan. 20 inauguration, he will be the first black person to hold… Continue

Best Markets for Sci Fi Writers

While cruising the Web the other day, I found a list of possible markets for sci-fi and spec writers. Info includes payment terms and other resources, but the most important items are links to stories that are being published.



Why is this important?



In order to compete in any marketplace, you must study from the people who are successfully selling. So, my advice is to review and evaluate the stories that are winning awards and paychecks and utilize some of the… Continue

THE 1ST ALLIANCES:

MAYDAY!







Her Viper was beginning to spin. Slowly now, but Starbuck knew soon she would be pinned to one side of her Viper as the centripetal forces rose. She slid her hand over the emergency eject lever, better to have it in hand now than when she may not have the strength to reach it. Be a shame to have the opportunity to bail only to be held back by her own body weight times ten. Spinning… Continue

SCI-FI Amalgam Universe: Fan Fiction

I'm not usually into fan fiction but a buddy of mine; a fellow writer and I got into some heated arguments about which SCI-FI series could kick the ass out of the which other SCI-FI series and stories. That sort of kicked off a bit of a running writing fight and then evolved into a pretty interesting series of short stories and "What ifs". The stories all follow a specific outline and had a definite plot but we write them from several different points along the story. A story where EVERY and… Continue

Roundabout or How I Got Here...

...Quite by accident. Or quiet design. Viable arguments for the genesis of many things, but tripping through the wires of the internet led me to this Place. A vibrant fantastical place in its own right, the Black Science Fiction Society feels like coming home or a family reunion. Multicolored, multifaceted, multicultural, is how I likes it. So thanks to all y'all for the uncharacteristically warm welcome!

The Igbo plot

Chikaodili carried the bucket out of his compound to fetch water for his wife. He stood still in the doorway illuminated by the moonlight. His attention was directed to the hill to his right. On top of the hill stood a large structure with smoke from its chimney into the night sky. Chikaodili dropped the bucket where he stood and quickly walked back into his compound. He walked down the hallway not having time to see their occupants. He turned left into one of the rooms. He was startled when he… Continue

WINTER GHOST P 7

Oh no…

The snow pulls at my legs, trying to keep us from escaping. I slog into the alley but I know that he’ll catch us long before we can reach the other end.

What little light filtered through the trees and bushes into the alley from the street lights is suddenly blocked.

My legs stop dead… I can’t help myself. I can feel his eyes boring into my back.

I hear… it’s like a growl…

… no, it’s a word… low, deep and rumbling. Oh God…

Why can’t I… Continue

HAPPY KWANZA

History and etymology An African-American scholar and social activist, Ron Karenga created Kwanzaa in 1966 as the first African-American holiday. Karenga said his goal was to "...give Blacks an alternative to the existing holiday and give Blacks an opportunity to celebrate themselves and history, rather than simply imitate the practice of the dominant society." The name Kwanzaa derives from the Swahili phrase "matunda ya…

Wow - The End of Another Year . . .

And another new beginning. I'm not sure, but this may be the happiest time of my life (I say that every year and it's always true). I love what I do and I love the people who have come into my life because of it - you! It's been an interesting year and I look forward to another one.



Like many of you, I've had my personal woes with illness, work, money and family, but it all just makes me appreciate my life all the more. Besides, now I wonder how to write about everything… Continue

The U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant spent hours on end planning a wide-scale domestic terrorist attack, even logging in at his work computer on the job at headquarters to study the manifestos and heinous paths of mass shooters, prosecutors say. He researched how to carry out sniper attacks, they contend, and whether rifle scopes were illegal. And all the while, investigators assert, he was amassing a cache of weapons as he ruminated about attacks on politicians and journalists.

But Christopher P. Hasson was not an isolated figure, according to a contractor who worked with him. The 49-year-old…

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.
