I've got a new and tiny, one story Fiction Crawler on this week's StarShipSofa, in which I try to convince any of you who are eligible to nominate stories for the Hugos, to read Blood, Blood by Abbey Mei Otis, in my opinion, the best story of 2010. Listen here, about 49:00 in and click the links to the story at the bottom of that post, or below:

Blood, Blood Part 1:
Blood, Blood Part 2:

Please read this excellent story and consider nominating it. There's only a little over a week left!

In other news, I'll have a piece of brand new flash fiction appearing at Chizine for their big-ass site re-launch in April! I'll remind you and link to it, when the time comes.

Thank You, Anonymous Friend!

Some wonderful one of you who doesn't want his or her identity to be revealed (even to me), has covered the fee for me for StarShipSofa's Online Writer's Workshop which I mentioned here a few days ago (You still have about a day and a half to sign up)! All I can say is:


I appreciate it greatly and would give you a big smooch if I knew who you were. Maybe that's why you don't want me to know! To sit at the virtual feet of Michael Swanwick, Sheila Williams and the gang as they dispense their wisdom for an hour or two is a fantastic opportunity. I'll pay your generosity forward in the future!

Who was that masked stranger?

Story 132 is done and out the door. Jesus, it's been three months since my last one!

It's a couple hours of advice and answers from some big names in the science fiction and fantasy field (including one of my favorite authors). And a week after the workshop, participants get a video download of the whole thing so they can return to those words of wisdom again and again. Here's a little rundown of the agenda and presenters:The Beginning - Gregory Frost
  • Plot Tricks from the Dark Side - James Patrick Kelly
  • How To Fix Your Story After It's Written and You Discover That It Doesn't Work - Michael Swanwick
