In this first of three Halloween-y columns examining several media adaptations of Stephen King works, Steve talks about the new movie, and what’s wrong with IT.
As he has done for the past several years, Steve looks back (without anger) at the previous year’s columns, and hopes you found reading them worthwhile. And now: To Infinity—And Beyond! as someone once said!
Continuing his retro-look at some older columns, Steve talks about Ace Doubles and their cover art. We’re talking about The Good Old Stuff, in both writing and SF illustration. Get Some Now!
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.
Steve uses his personal time machine to share an early post about Modesty Blaise—he’s off doing NaNoWriMo! (Don’t know what that is? Read on….)

In just under thirty days I have written over sixty thousand words on two projects and started a third. This is a personal best for me but proves that if you put your mind to something anything is possible. I’m not saying it’s easy, much less something which can be left to the last minute […]
National Novel Writing Month (more traditionally held in November and known as NaNoWriMo) starts early this year. The idea is simple: you write a 50k novel in thirty days. It sounds so easy doesn’t it? Just write 1667 words a day for thirty days. This year there are three NaNoWriMos, two ‘summer camps’ (held in […]
