SF/F Links: February Roundup Part One


Lots and lots of links heading your way. This has been a busy last couple weeks for sure. I’ve had essays up the you know where and a midterm, which I pray that I did good on. In any case, I’ve found lots of interesting things to share and that’s exactly what intend to do: share. So enjoy!

First and most important, however, is that there are actually some writers in serious need of financial assistance. Now, I’m broke due to school, but I do understand that writers simply don’t make a lot of money in the first place and sometimes bad things happen they can’t account for. You can find all the information about the following two writers and their predicament, plus how you can help (i.e. where to send money to), at this link to Bibliophile Stalker.
James Reasoner recently lost his house and EVERYTHING due to a wild fire caused by some idiot tossing a cigarette out a car window. They’ve lost everything and need everything.
Also Caitlin R. Kiernan, another writer, has come into financial difficulties over a medical condition, something I imagine we all have gone through.
Click the link above and please please please give a dollar or ten or twenty or more. Anything you can for these folks. It’s tragic and unfortunate that writers get paid so very very little, but it’s true. Thanks on that.

Okay, to usual links:

  1. The Rules for writing a fantasy novel and annoying and I wish you hadn’t linked them because now I want to send rude messages to the person who posted them.

    That keyboard bra is weird. Weird weird weird.

  2. That list was actually meant as a joke :P. You’re not meant to take it seriously. That’s what makes it funny. They’re so stupid and ridiculous :P.

    And I agree, the bra thing is weird, but strangely intriguing.

  3. I think it’s intriguing because it’s rather interesting, but I’d never want someone to wear something like that for me. That’s just ridiculous. A keyboard for a bra? Really, come on…bras are complicated enough as it is.
