neato stuff

Want to point out the upcoming KGB Fantastic Fiction Raffle, in case any of you haven’t heard of it. There are some really awesome prizes up there: you can win a story critique from Nancy Kress, Rick Bowes, Gardner Dozois, Shawna McCarthy and a few others. You can get Jeffrey Ford or Lucius Shepard to “Tuckerize” your name in a short story (this means they’ll name a character after you). Tom Canty has donated an original drawing (eek!). AND there’s lots of reading material, including subscriptions to some awesome magazines like Paradox and Sybil’s Garage. The raffle tickets are only $1 each, though obviously buying more will improve your chances.

Best of all, you get to support the ongoing KGB Fantastic Fiction reading, which happens the third Wednesday of every month. I’m going to be reading there in December, so of course this is a very worthy cause!

EDIT: Starts on July 14th, but you can browse the items before then.

  2. Hey, I was looking through some pics at Locus and I saw some black faces for once! Two of them in fact. I’m African American and I also carry the Scarlet A at the bottom of my website. I’m going to read your first three chapters and if you send me a copy I’ll write a review being that I have worked as a professional book reviewer (reviewed comics for Locus for awhile). I’d love for you to check out my website and my video channel as that it offers things that might interest an African American into science, science fiction, jazz, acid jazz and atheism. In other words, there’s a chance that someone besides me would like the Acid Jazz Channel.
