Write-a-thon gets results!
Hey folks. Probably a lot of you have seen the news all over the net. What I wanted to say here was that "I'm Alive, I Love You, I'll See You in Reno" is a Write-a-thon story. I wrote it during the 2007 session, when I promised to write 6 stories in 6 weeks.
So the Write-a-thon works! I highly recommend signing up--whether you have sponsors or not. It will help you get new work accomplished.
[from my blog]:
There's a new SF magazine, and it's worth checking out. From the press release:
Lightspeed's focus is exclusively on science fiction. It features all types of sf, from near-future, sociological soft sf, to far-future, star-spanning hard sf, and anything and everything in between. No subject is considered off-limits, and Lightspeed writers are encouraged to take chances with their fiction and push the envelope.
And I've got the first story in the first issue, with cover art to match! (woot!) Here it is: I'm Alive, I Love You, I'll See You in Reno. There's also an interview with me that involves Penthouse and bear traps. If you want to learn more about relativistic travel, you can read Mike Brotherton's accompanying essay.
