RavenCon Report

Dan and I went to Ravencon this weekend, which was a little strange, since normally we take the boys with us.  The trip started out badly.  I mean, our flight was diverted to DC, which I expect was an attempt against my life.  Fortunately I had with me sister Agnes' ruler, which glows in the...

New project and new programs.

It would be so easy to do another Hugogate post this morning but I won't. However, here is fair warning to all those out there trying to do their best to paint some people I respect a great deal with the brush of evil: Stop. You really don't want to keep going after Larry Corriea... Continue Reading →

Monday Morning

and it's the day after a con. For Dave, it's Conclave Two. He's posted over at Coal-Fired Cuttlefish that he is having to borrow access and a computer. So that may be why we haven't heard from him this morning. Either that or his "con-fusion" is like mine usually is the day after a con... Continue Reading →

Not About Hugos

Not About Hugos Not really, at least. Not mostly? Anyway, watching what seems like half the world lose their ever-loving minds over what is essentially an episode of epic-level trolling (albeit with a point) has been a delight. I'm certain we'll be entertained (subjected to?) more of the same between now and LonCon in August.... Continue Reading →

When The Fire Dies

If you're a writer, there are times in your life -- career reverses, physical illness, financial insecurity,  horrible things happening to those you love -- when you'll feel like the fire within you has died and has left nothing but cold in your heart and a taste of ashes in your mouth. You're not alone. ... Continue Reading →

The Road to Indie

It would be so easy to do anther post about Hugos this morning. In fact, I considered it, especially after seeing how one of the editors posted a diatribe of sorts on the Tor site. However, since I know Kate is fisking the situation Thursday and because Dave did such a great job looking at... Continue Reading →
