Shaun’s Rambles 009: On the #HugoAwards and #SadPuppies

The Hugos are over, but the controversy isn't over.  In this episode, I talk about the results of the 2015 Hugo Awards and how the Sad Puppies have irreparably harmed whatever good message they had.  It's not an exhaustive discussion, but it's one I wanted to start while I had time. If you want to learn more about what is going on, here are few useful links: Read More

2015 Resolutions: Oh, God, So Much Work to Do!

The New Year is upon us, and there's far too much I didn't get done in 2014 that I should have.  And so I figure I should make one of those resolutions things to make myself feel inclined to actually complete some projects.

On that note, here are my resolutions:

  • Publish a collection with Sarah Chorn (who is the awesomestest)
  • Finish the SpecFic 2014 anthology with Renay (which I have to do because I said I would)
  • Lose another 20 lbs (or replace it with muscle)
  • Finish my dissertation by November 2015
  • Finish my action adventure space opera novel of awesome featuring a female protagonist who is a tech savant and her warrior brother who fights using a mecha-based wheel chair (yeah!)
  • Review 50 books
  • Review 25 movies
  • Finish my SFF Odyssey project
  • Be awesome
I think that's a fair enough list, don't you?

What are your resolutions for 2015?
