Coming Along, Bit-by-bit

Recorded a great episode of the podcast with Benjamin Rosenbaum this morning, think we’re really getting into some nitty-gritty stuff that will be hopefully useful and of interest to writers. . Hoping to start releasing those soon, at least teasers. I think my framing of all this has also finally crystallized. When I started the summer, there was …

A Loosely Formed Idea

This is a very loosely formed idea, and I’m not sure we have the capacity for it, but help me think it through / poke holes in it. It’s coming out of three things: • This fall, however school works out, there’s clearly going to be a need for additional tutoring support for various students, …

World Fantasy Going Virtual

Quick note for SF/F writers. World Fantasy just e-mailed to announce that they’re cancelling and going virtual.

Something Satisfying

There’s something really satisfying about sewing Dr. Who toile masks (TARDIS and Dalek) while attending virtually the SFWA business meeting, listening to SFWA President Mary Robinette Kowal and worthy others talk about SFWA activities in general and the Nebula conference in particular (last weekend in May).
