This week, Steve takes a back seat to his guest reviewer, a writer named D.G. Valdron, who has a very articulate opinion on whether Marvel’s The Eternals is worth your money and/or attention.
It’s the end of another year. Where do we want to be by this time next year? Have we learned anything? Have we become better people? Steve tries to make some serious points about being a fan.
Steve continues his F&SF reviews with the current (Mar-Apr) issue. He finds it a nice blend of SF (even some “hard SF”) and fantasy (even “hard” fantasy!).
For his final column of 2018, Steve dives into the Nov./Dec. issue of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, which everyone just calls “F&SF.” It tastes great and is more filling with fewer calories than competing magazines!
This week, Steve looks at a supernatural murder mystery historical romance—if you can believe that label—and an anthology of original modern horror stories. He enjoyed both of them—will your mileage vary?
In honour of the late Harlan Ellison, Steve deconstructs—without major spoilers—the film “A Boy and His Dog.” It’s not a great film. See whether you agree!
This week Steve tells you where to get even MORE GREAT SF/F for next to nothing! And if you were reading this column four years ago you might have read the rest. Just sayin’.
Steve takes us “Back to the Future”… er, “Back to the Past” again with another recycled column. This week, it’s all about his writing and NaNoWriMo. If you don’t know what that is, you should probably read this.
Continuing with recent movie reviews, Steve looks at the Netflix Original movie ARQ, and also the 3D “mo-cap” movie Final Fantasy XV: Kingsglaive, and finds them both quite watchable. Not great, but watchable!
MosCon was a Northwest Fannish Legend (perhaps in its own mind), and Steve takes you back to those “thrilling days of yesteryear,” as The Lone Ranger used to say.
Another friend gone; Steve mourns Debbie Miller; also New Venture and MosCon reminiscences. And both fiction and non-fiction StoryBundles! Go get ’em!
The January/February issue of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction (F&SF) is under review by Steve, who likes it a lot, even though a couple of the stories kind of depressed him. You will probably like it too!
Steve talks about the late Sir Terry Pratchett, and his last book–last DISCWORLD book, too!–which just came out. A new Pratchett is usually a joyous occasion, but this book brings mixed emotions.
Steve reaches a milestone 100 columns, and reviews the new Writers of the Future anthology and the film Big Hero 6.
Steve reviews Lisa Goldstein’s “Walking the Labyrinth” and lists his posts of 2014. Happy new year!
Steve gets all excited over a shared-universe anthology series. And tells you where to get FREE SF!
A review of some current crowdfunding publishing projects
Steve reviews Nina Kiriki Hoffman’s book “Catalyst” and talks about a writers’ workshop.
Fiction RIver has been a huge success, particularly in introducing a diversity of themes.
Cedar clues us in on a host of useful tips and guides for those who are looking to publish in 2014.
Fiction River WMG Publishing Six times a year Electronic $6.99 Trade Paper $15.99 I interviewed Kristine Kathryn Rusch two weeks ago about the experience of launching Fiction River via Kickstarter. Fiction River is a new anthology series billed as an “anthology magazine” by the publisher, WMG Publishing. The current publishing schedule is every other month, […]
My post on crowdfunding a few weeks back generated some really great discussion and seemed to tap into something of interest to a great many people. This topic, like the rest of publishing these days, is very dynamic, so it’s one I’m going to return to on a regular basis. Two of the people leading […]
I’ve been on the brink of buying a ten-pack of ISBN numbers a half-dozen times the last few weeks. The reason I haven’t just pinched my nose and stepped off into the deep end is, quite frankly, money. For that ten pack, which should be adequate to publish two novels in paper and multiple e-formats, […]
