It’s time for another roundup of things I’ve got going on elsewhere!
I learned last night that my story, “In the Shadows of the Empire of Coal,” has been accepted into Bruce Bethke’s Stupefying Stories
. I don’t know which issue it will appear in yet, but as soon as I do, all you blog readers will know.
The story in question is not-quoite-Steampunk. I like to think of it as Coalpunk, although I suppose that technically means Steampunk anyway. But it lacks all the glamour of Steampunk, with a heavy dose of utter weirdness (I like to say it reads like the darker side of Miyazaki, though that’s rather ambitious of me).
The contract is on its way. When I get more information, I’ll post about it on my blog!
The latest episode of SandF is up. Due to some scheduling conflicts, we had to put together a quick discussion episode on the recent Amazon/Publisher battle and the “problem” of Faith in SF/F. We plow through the topics fairly quickly, but we hope it will produce an interesting conversation.
In any case, you can find the episode here
We’ve changed DZDA to a weekly format. The episodes will be shorter as a result. We talk about the change in our 3rd episode. Also on the agenda: “Rush thinks you’re a slut and other GOP anti-women shenanigans, it’s time to bring our soldiers home, proof that white men should not have guns, plus a bunch of other random stuff we feel like talking about.”
Give it a listen! More to come from DZDA soon…
And that’s that. What have you been up to lately?
