The Complete Interview 2013 - Bruce Sterling

"Ted Striphas: Like many science fiction writers (or, like many of the best science fiction writers), you've introduced several neologisms into the English language—words and phrases like "buckyjunk," "major consensus narrative," "spime," and a host of others. Beyond the fact that neologisms can make for lively writing, why push the limits of language this way? I know that can sound like "pushing" language, but from my point of view, social change reveals gaps in language. For instance, the idea of an "Internet of Things" leaves, to my eye, an obvious verbal hole for a "thing" that's created specifically to exist within an "internet of things." What kind of "thing" is that "thing?" "Spime" is not a great word, but it's there if anybody needs it. If there's an issue that needs discussion, but there's no way to discuss it without some clumsy workaround, then why not just make up a word for it? Thousands of slang terms are invented in many dialects of English every day. The English language isn't going to buckle and collapse because I made up the term "buckyjunk," which prophesies the pollution problems involved in making items from semi-indestructible "buckminsterfullerene." Some people think I made up other colorful terms such as "blobject" and "junkspace," but I didn't, I was quite happy just to find these neologisms and do my part to spread them around. Where is my downside? I'm a science fiction writer, I'm not going to get arrested for using new words." 4.5 out of 5 http://www.40kbooks.com/?p=13726

Surprised by Superhero 2044: The First Superhero RPG was More Influential than You Might Think - Christian Lindke

"Second, without Superhero 2044 modern super hero role playing would not be what it is today. Those three major directions I mentioned above? Each of those had a significant influence on the super hero games that came after Superhero 2044. Without this game, there would be no Champions, Supergame, or Golden Heroes. Each of those super hero games lifts a concept out of Superhero 2044 and structures a game around that concept. Superhero 2044 is more than the first super hero role playing game, it is the foundation upon which many games followed. It was the first superhero game to include point based character construction. Though the point expenditure was limited to the building of a character's "attributes" and were not a part of "power design." This innovation, and at the time of Superhero 2044 this was a significant innovation, is one of the major design starting points for a number of super hero role playing games -- not the least of which is the Champions game." 4.5 out of 5 http://www.advanceddungeonsandparenting.com/2012/03/from-archives-surprised-by-superhero.html

Paid By the Weird Guest Post - Sommer Marsden

"Is there a character or story that's stuck in your head and won't leave, from either your work or someone else's? Ellis Bach, my werewolf extraordinaire, took a hell of a long time to vacate my brain after I finished the Big Bad/Long Lost books. And my zombie exterminators hang out and crop up to talk to me from time to time. So much so that I plan to write book #4 this year. As for other book characters, I must say I adore the whole crew in Janet Evanovich's books. I've been reading them so long they feel like family when I crack the current novel open. Repairman Jack from F. Paul Wilson's books is also a long time, close personal fictional friend of mine. What writers or novels do you consider “must reads”? Janet Evanovich, F. Paul Wilson, Gillian Flynn, Chuck Palahniuk, Stephen King, Richard Kadrey, and more I can't remember!" 4 out of 5 http://paidbytheweird.blogspot.com.au/2013/01/guest-post-sommer-marsden.html

The Great Stephen King Re-read: Pet Sematary - Grady Hendrix

"Rarely is revenge so sweet. Stephen King’s Pet Sematary is notorious for being the book that King thought was too scary to be published, and that one idea became its entire marketing campaign when King refused to do any interviews or publicity to support it. He refused not because Pet Sematary was “too scary,” but because it was his final flipped bird to Doubleday. It was a contractual obligation book that had been sitting in a drawer for years that he only released grudgingly and, strangely enough, it became his first mega-blockbuster." 4 out of 5 http://www.tor.com/blogs/2013/01/the-great-stephen-king-re-read-pet-sematary

The Aquaman Environment Factor - Chance Thulin

"Even when we have characters whose environments are cemented in space there is a mystique to the universe, as the space faring characters seem to represent man’s need to instill order and explore the unknown limits of the infinite. But Aquaman’s environment is not something as unknown as space or as familiar and personable as a city. Aquaman’s environment is the sea and the ocean. He is an earthbound hero in a location that humanity already believes we have complete control over. The ocean holds no mystique and no personality that we can identify with, so why should we respect a hero whose best demonstrations of ability are restricted to a specific ecosystem?" 4 out of 5 http://sequart.org/magazine/17866/the-aquaman-environment-factor/

Portal 1 - Eric Flint and Ryk E. Spoor

"It had all started so simply – as most disasters do. With the discovery of the first two alien bases, one on Mars and one on Mars’ moon Phobos, it had become a virtual certainty that there must be other alien installations, possibly with incalculably valuable artifacts within, waiting for salvage elsewhere in the Solar System. The Buckley Accords gave the first discoverer to, literally, set foot on any other system body long-term rights to exploit resources on that body, within a certain range of that first footstep. That was the starter’s gun on the greatest race in history – a race to discover these new locations and reach them first, claiming those resources for the country – or the corporation – that first placed a human being upon the planet, moon, or asteroid on which the alien base was located." 4 out of 5 http://grandcentralarena.com/portal-first-chapter-teaser/

Interview with Evil Hat - Fred Hicks

"Ingo: In the past Evil Hat did something unusual. On the company blog you published the number of sold games. Now you gave the beta version of FATE CORE to all backers of the Kickstarter Campaign. I think these decisions are exemplary, but what is the idea behind this “open business” attitude? Fred Hicks: It’s pretty simple. We’re treating people like we’d like to be treated. Starting out as a game company 7 or so years back it was terribly difficult to get at the information about what reasonable sales performance looked like in gaming. So when we started *having* that information… we provided it so others could benefit. Similarly, we’ve found time and again that if we let folks get a look at our games before we send them to the printer, their scrutiny leads to a better, stronger final product. So the whole “get a look at Fate Core RIGHT NOW” thing for the Kickstarter was a bit of a no-brainer." 4 out of 5 http://www.faterpg.de/2013/01/23/interwith-fred-hicks-from-evil-hat/

INTERVIEW: DEVOLUTION with - Rick Remender and Paul Renaud

"Rick Remender: It’s classic science fiction, heavily inspired by my love of EC comic books and the Twilight Zone television series. But I think readers will be surprised by the amount of attention to character development in this series, we have a very interesting ensemble cast and I’m leaning heavily into satire and humor. Mankind had been devolving long before the chemical devolution agent was introduced into the ecosystem and I’m having a lot of fun poking at that. ... Paul Renaud: When we initially talked about that story, we really wanted to get the feel of the sci fi EC Comics, especially the ones by Williamson/Frazetta/Krenkel. We love the spirit of adventure and discovery that those guys were infusing in every aspect of their comics. The first images that came to me were giant trees, taller than buildings growing inside the cities. I told Rick I wanted to set a background of gigantic proportions where human is the weakest species. Like the world has become King Kong’ Skull Island. The more our guys are moving into the story and into their journey, the bigger it will become." 4 out of 5 http://ifanboy.com/articles/interview-devolution-with-rick-remender-paul-renaud/

Golden Heroes by Simon Burley and Peter Haines - OLevelin Human

"But the most impressive element of the game mechanics for my money was the dully named Campaign Ratings: an array of fluctuating characteristics and stats, which could go up or down due to actual role-playing! No, not spending experience points, but by the way your character behaves. Of course your character rationale would also have plenty of influence on there starting values too. Now if you think this sounds a little bit like the Passions and Trait system in Pendragon which is widely celebrated in revolutionizing RPGing from the binary shackles of good-evil alignments and such other horse shit then you are right. What’s more GH came out a good 12 months or so before Pendragon did. Now I’m not saying that Greg Stafford ripped it off, but I am saying that GH got there first and deserves to be remembered for it." 4 out of 5 http://d4d6d8d10d12d20sbehindtheskeletoninthecloset.wordpress.com/2009/06/12/golden-heroes/

Restrospective: Chill - James Maliszewski

"What really made Chill work, though, was its attitude and approach. The game was not a doom-laden meditation on man's insignificance. Neither was it filled with angsty melodrama. Chill was unapologetically -- even gleefully -- a game about kicking monster butt in the name of goodness, just like Peter Cushing did back in the day.

One of the big supplements for the Marvel Superheroes Advanced game, this gives a lot of detail and character histories for the Avengers organisation in all their locations.

Yes, this is a time travel adventure, as you would expect. You have a chance to take your heroes back in time in this adventure, and if unlucky, get shot at a real lot.

Science Fiction Under Totalitarian Regimes Part 2: Tsarist and Soviet Russia - Jess Nevins

"This intrusion of pulp science fiction into Russian pulp literature did not result in the creation of science fiction pulps, as it did in Europe. The nearest Russia came to a science fiction pulp was Tref, the First Detective in Russia #1-? (1910), a fictionalization and exaggeration of the exploits of Tref, a famous Moscow police dog. The fictional Tref has near-human intelligence and is known as "the four-legged Sherlock Holmes." But the increase in pulp science fiction did result in the increasing appearance of pulp science fiction stories and novels and in the increase in science fiction in non-science fiction pulps." 4.5 out of 5 http://io9.com/5964774/science-fiction-under-totalitarian-regimes-part-2-tsarist-and-soviet-russia?tag=pulp

Pulp Science Fiction Under German Totalitarianism - Jess Nevins

"Even during World War I, when the German government attempted to aggressively regulate and censor the pulp press, pulp SF appeared, both as ongoing series and as recurring concepts and themes in non-SF pulps. Two of the more popular science fiction pulps were the anonymously-written Hans Stark, Der Fliegerteufel #1-30 (1914), about a German teenager who uses a high-tech submersible plane to fight evil. And the anonymously-written Detektiv John Spurlock #1-36 (1915), whose star fights an invasion of H.G. Wells' Martians and discovers the formula that turned Dr. Jekyll into Mr. Hyde." 4.5 out of 5 http://io9.com/5960383/pulp-science-fiction-under-totalitarian-regimes-part-one-germany?tag=pulp

Pulp Science Fiction in Spain Before And During Totalitarianism - Jess Nevins

"It might be thought that a line of demarcation for Spanish pulp science fiction, as with so much else in modern Spanish history, would be the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). You might think hat the pulp scifi published during the Spanish Republic (1931-1936) would be significantly different from that published under the fascist regime of Gen. Franco (1936-1939). But the dividing line is actually earlier, in 1929. (Why 1929 and not the Civil War is a question that I'll leave for Spanish historians to answer)." 4.5 out of 5 http://io9.com/5977271/pulp-science-fiction-in-spain-before-and-during-totalitarianism

The History of RuneQuest - Peter Maranci

"Chaos continued to be the single defining hallmark of the RuneQuest system. In 2010, Mongoose Publishing released a new version of their RuneQuest system under the name "RuneQuest 2" - which nonetheless was not the classic RuneQuest II system under which RuneQuest became famous in the 1980s, but rather a revision of Mongoose's first take on RuneQuest. By most accounts these rules were an improvement on the original Mongoose RQ system. And Mongoose did acknowledge the original creators of the RuneQuest system in their new edition. But in any case, and for reasons unknown, Mongoose Publishing and Issaries parted ways in June of 2011. With that split, publication of all versions of RuneQuest by Mongoose ceased. Except not quite! Mongoose retains the copyright to their own version of the RuneQuest rules (albeit not the trademark to the RuneQuest name, which remains with Issaries), and have announced that they will be publishing those rules as the "Wayfarer" RPG, later changed to the "Legend" RPG since it turned out that "Wayfarer" was already trademarked. They've also announced plans to convert a number of their other RPGs to the Legend system, including their Eternal Champion games. None of these systems include Gloranthan material, of course, since the rights to Glorantha remain with Issaries. Issaries did not immediately announce any plans for the RuneQuest trademark. However, there were now even more versions of the RuneQuest system than ever on the market - although a family tree showing the relationships between them would be very difficult to diagram." 5 out of 5 http://www.maranci.net/rqpast.htm

An Aurealis Interview - Jason Nahrung

"I drew on my childhood growing up on a cattle property on the Queensland coast for this story. Fencing was something we did a lot of! That sense of isolation — not necessarily an enemy, by the way — particularly for a young fella was something that definitely underpinned this story, that and the social nexus that is the country dance. Wild dogs were something we combated but obviously our packs of dingoes and ferals weren’t quite as vicious as the ones in Breaking the Wire. I’d also add that my family life was somewhat more cheerful than the one depicted in this yarn, though that idea of having a new generation to hand the farm to ran strong out our way." 3.5 out of 5 http://www.darkmatterfanzine.com/dmf/jason-nahrung/

In the female brain, it creates feelings of attachment.” “Attachment to what?” “To her sex partner. Oxytocin is one of the reasons women find it harder to have one-night stands.” “Some women.” “More women than not,” he said, and before he could stop himself, he added, “It’s probably happened to you, too.” “Oh, no, no.” She shook her head emphatically. “Not me.”" 4 out of 5 http://passionatereads.com/pitch-contest/project-nsa-by-alexa-day/

From the Archives - Julian May

"I kept filling the folder. I was bored with the SF of the late 1970s: one gloom-and-doom vision after another. Who needed it, with the real world in the state it was in? Readers, I felt, were ready for something completely different. I brooded over folkloric themes, the Norse sagas, the Arthurian legend, the Irish and Germanic faerie kingdoms, Tolkien and his modern fantasy treatment of classic mythopoeic themes. And the old-fashioned word processor said: time-travel. I took sophisticated humans from a Galactic Milieu through a time-gate and dropped them in the midst of barbarian mind-wars. And it worked. I constructed a multilayered, massive novel with four parts. On the surface it was a rousing adventure in the colourful Pliocene of western Europe, six million years ago. Below that I could indulge in character creation to my heart’s content, archetypal characters full of courage and humour and earthy sex and archaic violence. The result was the Saga of Pliocene Exile." 4 out of 5 http://torbooks.co.uk/2013/01/16/from-the-archives-interview-with-julian-may/

Spirit of the Century - Fred Hicks and Robert Donoghue and Leonard Balsera

A FATE based RPG. "A Pulp Pick-Up Role-Playing Game The deadly Doctor Methuselah seeks to unravel time itself with his solution to the Eternity Equation... Gorilla Khan stalks darkest Africa from conquered Atlantis... Mad scientists, strange sorcerers, and power-hungry dictators all seek to undo the fate of humanity. It's the final century of the second millennium — and you are our last hope! Spirit of the Century is a complete, stand-alone pulp role-playing game based on the award-winning Fate system (Indie RPG Awards include: Best Free Game of 2003, Best Support, and Andy's Choice). Spirit features a heavily revised, revisited, and reimagined vision of Fate. Character creation can be done as quickly as a few minutes, or expand to take up an evening; adventure design is a snap with three methods for creating relevant, flavorful, player-focused stories at a moment's notice. Spirit's mission is to deliver an evening of fun, a "pick-up" game that requires little preparation, but provides hours of entertainment. All you will need to play are some friends, some dice, and this book." http://www.faterpg.com/dl/sotc-srd.html http://evilhat.wikidot.com/spirit-of-the-century

FATE - Fred Hicks and Robert Donoghue

"Fate is a story-oriented roleplaying game system. Though it is a full-fledged standalone system, Fate can also be incorporated into a variety of popular roleplaying systems. In this book, we present a version of Fate that has been tailored to work with Fudge, an RPG by Steffan O'Sullivan. As such, we assume the reader is familiar with Fudge, and while everything necessary to play is included, you are strongly encouraged to acquire a copy of Fudge, either at your local game store, or for free online at http://fudgerpg.com/. Those interested in starting out immediately with Fudge may wish to check out Fudge in a Nutshell. 1.1 The Adjectives The most important thing to understand about Fudge is how it describes things. Rather than assigning numerical values to elements like skills it uses adjectives, which are ranked as follows: Abysmal, Terrible, Poor, Mediocre, Average, Fair, Good, Great, Superb, Epic, and Legendary. Consider: a bodyguard might be a Good swordsman but have Mediocre social skills. He'll probably win a fight with an artist who's a Superb painter but a Poor swordsman. Almost anything can be described using this ladder: an empire may field a Superb army or a spaceship may be limping by with a Poor engine." 5 out of 5 http://zork.net/~nick/loyhargil/fate-srd-rest/Fate-SRD-2005-03-31.html

Diabolic Plots Interview - Carl Frederick

"CS: Why a novel about preteen boys? CF: Richard Feynman speculated that if kids were introduced to quantum mechanics concepts at an early age, they might (unlike physicists in general) be completely comfortable with those concepts. Exploring that idea is one of the thrusts of the novel." 4 out of 5 http://www.diabolicalplots.com/?p=3205

FUDGE - Steffan O'Sullivan

"Fudge is a rules-light role-playing game engine providing a common set of game mechanics that can be used to create any role-playing game you desire. Fudge uses a simple word-based system for handling action and combat resolution, which makes the game fast-paced and easy to play. For example, a character might be a Great Swordsman rather than a 14th level fighter. Combined with simple action resolution, Fudge's descriptive nature makes ideal it for novice players. Fudge is also flexible enough to satisfy experienced roleplayers. There are no artificial limits placed on character creation; any character the player can imagine can be described in Fudge terms. (Of course, Fudge encourages players to consult with their game master when designing characters, since the GM has final say over whether or not a character is acceptable in a given game.) The basic Fudge rules contain no campaign world information (except for a few examples). But the game's flexibility allows it to be easily used with nearly any other role-playing game's campaign world - and, of course, with game masters' own personal creations. To get Fudge, you can download the Fudge basic rules from the Fudge Files or buy one of the complete Fudge-based products by Grey Ghost Games and other fine game publishers. Some Highlights of Fudge No Fixed Attributes. The GM chooses attributes that match the genre played and suit individual taste. A GM designing a simple Fudge game may choose only two attributes (Body and Mind, for instance), or may dispense with attributes entirely and have a character's abilities entirely defined by skills, gifts, and faults. Another Gamemaster may choose 6 attributes, or 10, or more. There are a lot of attributes to choose from Skill-driven system. The GM selects the skills, whether they are broadly defined skill groups or finely defined individual skills. You can even mix broad definitions with narrow ones without any loss of playability. Simple action resolution. Players use normal six-sided dice - or, optionally, special Fudge dice - to determine how well their characters perform any action. Results describe degrees of success (or failure!) in words - from Superb down to Terrible. Alternative dice methods allow for 20-sided or percentile dice to be used. Easy translation. The word-based system lets you easily translate any campaign world or adventure written in Fudge into any other system - and vice versa! Fudge thus works as a "universal translator" of gaming systems. Design your own. If you are thinking of designing your own home rules role-playing game, simply reading Fudge can provide an excellent introduction to everything you need consider as a game designer! Goodies Galore. The Fudge game was first published on the Internet, and alternative rules and supplementary materials are freely available at various on-line sites. The Grey Ghost Games website includes links to many of these Fudge-related sites." 5 out of 5 http://fudgerpg.com/about/about-fudge/fudge-overview.html http://fudgerpg.com/goodies/fudge-files/core/

ZeFRS - Mark Krawec

"In the mid-1980s, TSR published a number of games that made use of a color-coded chart to resolve character actions. The best known of these is of course Marvel Superheroes, but the chart also turned up in the third edition of Gamma World among others. One of those others was Conan, a game that many consider an underappreciated gem: compact, fast-moving, easy and fun. In the spirit of the d20 SRD, these pages were created to make the Conan rules, stripped of their franchise-related elements, available for play once again. Oddly enough, now that Conan Properties, Inc. has declined to renew Mongoose Publishing's exclusive license to publish Conan-related materials it has been suggested in all seriousness that ZeFRS would make a good stopgap gaming solution until a new holder emerges. I consider this a tribute to all the effort the members of the ZeFRS collective have put in as well as to the rules as they appeared originally. The rules were written by Dave "Zeb" Cook, so they are collectively referred to in this document as Zeb's Fantasy Roleplaying System, or ZeFRS." 5 out of 5 http://www.midcoast.com/~ricekrwc/zefrs/

Wide Open Fear: Australian Horror and Gothic Fiction - Lisa L. Hannett

"Two stories published in recent years are standouts, in my opinion, for integrating characters and their plights from the world in which they exist. The first is ‘Smoking, Waiting for the Dawn’ (Dreaming Again) by Jason Nahrung. This piece marks its territory by describing dusty red land, but where many of the examples I’ve given above use Australia’s unforgiving climate and its deserts as a backdrop to the action, this piece’s setting is integral in conveying the weariness, exhaustion, and wonderful bleakness that are driving forces in the plot:" 4.5 out of 5 http://www.thisishorror.co.uk/columns/southern-dark/wide-open-fear-australian-horror-and-gothic-fiction/

"Astronomers have discovered the Methuselah of stars — a denizen of our Solar System's neighbourhood that is at least 13.2 billion years old and formed shortly after the Big Bang. “We believe this star is the oldest known in the universe with a well determined age,” says Howard Bond of Pennsylvania State University in University Park, who announced the finding 10 January at a meeting of the American Astronomical Society in Long Beach, California." 4 out of 5 http://www.nature.com/news/nearby-star-may-be-the-oldest-known-1.12196

The Amazing Adventures of E.E. Doc Smith - Andrew Liptak

"Smith would find further acclaim with his Lensman series. After taking a year off to revitalize a doughnut business, he returned in 1936 with an 80 page outline, which would eventually become four novels. Astounding editor F. Orlin Tremaine offered to buy up the series, and The Galactic Patrol, featuring an intergalactic police force, tasked with protecting the galactic civilization appeared in the September, 1937, where it ran through February of the next year. Several more Lensman stories would appear, but Smith had set his sights on another story, the Vortex Blaster, which he sold to Tremaine, who had moved on to a new science fiction magazine, Comet, which resulted in some tension between him and Astounding’s editor, John W. Campbell. During World War II he worked with manufacturing explosives for the war effort, but was later fired. Returning to the doughnut industry, he eventually retired as a Chemist in 1957, continuing to write the entire time.

Suicide Girls Interview: Homeland - Cory Doctorow

"There was a good book I read last year, The Monster, about the Lehman Brother’s bankruptcy. One of the things that the author pointed out is the mortgage salesmen who sold the shitty mortgages that Lehman was laundering were literally the same people working out of the same boiler rooms as had been used to pump and duck the S&L crisis. Literally the same fraudsters moved from one fraud to the next fraud to the next. They take the same skill set; It’s highly transferable, from one fraud to the next, and they bring it along with them. So I found it real easy to imagine the same corporate crooks who gave us the subprime crisis, giving us an educational bond crisis in the same way and exercising undue influence in the halls of power in the same way.

CR Holiday Interview 22 - Mark Waid

"WAID: I think it's limited in what they can do. I think the system is, in terms of the way we've been doing business, the way we've been doing print business, stacked against them. Unless you're one of Diamond's premier publishers, you're not getting the discounts you really need to make a go of it. I love the fact that guys like Nicky at Dynamite and the IDW folks have managed, by my outside perspective hanging on by their fingernails, to continue to be a viable force. Or at least a voice out there that can make a living for people. Not a great living, but they can get paid for doing what they're doing. I find it kind of astonishing, I think "Oh, my God. How did some of those companies stay in business?" I haven't the foggiest notion how it is that Oni Press is still in business. [Spurgeon laughs] That's not a critical assessment of their company. That has nothing to do with their work. It's that I know how expensive this stuff is. I just don't know, and I'd be fascinated to find out." 5 out of 5 http://www.comicsreporter.com/index.php/cr_holiday_interview_22_mark_waid/

Interview: Author of Earth Thirst - Mark Teppo

"What’s next for you this year and beyond? I’m working on editorial and toning pass on the fourth Foreworld novel (which will be out in the fall), and I have some duties on the fifth one as well. I’m also managing the SideQuests, the novellas and graphic shorts that we’re doing for Foreworld in addition to the novels. I have three projects listed in my notebook right now—BLOOD HARVEST, HERE BE MONSTERS, and ANGEL TONGUE—and I’m not sure which one will be the book I’m actually writing this year. It depends on how Earth Thirst is received, somewhat." 3.5 out of 5 http://www.mybookishways.com/2013/01/interview-mark-teppo-author-of-earth-thirst.html

Interview - Sheila Williams

"Is there one type of story that you see too much of, or not enough of? I mostly tend to see too much of one kind of story when there’s a call for a theme anthology or someone starts mentioning a trend. Sometimes a news item will lead to a run on a theme, too. If “everyone’s doing” a certain kind of story it’s probably best to avoid it. Still, yours might be the best, so you can feel free to ignore this advice, too. Also, I see far too many stories where the main character is bored. If the character is bored, I’m usually bored too. I won’t read past the first paragraph if the character is just waking up. If you write a story about a character getting out of bed and eating breakfast, go back and cut everything that happens before the action begins. Like nearly every editor in this field, I don’t get enough well-thought-out hard SF. I’m always looking for the stories that integrate intriguing characters and clever plotting with well-developed science." 3.5 out of 5 http://odysseyworkshop.livejournal.com/55132.html

The Wild: Prelude - Linda Nagata

"And after all, Jahallon didn’t know this land. He’d never visited the Citadel of the Snow Chanter, even though the bitter history that had kept him away was long since crumbled to dust. On this, his first journey into the heart of Samokea, he relied on a senior captain to guide the column, but Lanyon could see he had his own doubts. “You’re listening to Siddél’s thunder?” he asked her. “Why does it lie behind us? Should we believe the monster has gone south to trouble Habaddon? Or is it more likely Siddél cleaves to custom, growling and threatening from the escarpment of the Tiyat-kel where no arrows can reach him? He can be heard there almost every afternoon from the ramparts of the Citadel. But that is not all. My horse remembers her home. She fights to turn north . . . or what I think is north. I’m certain we’re not going north now. We have lost our way.”" 4 out of 5 http://hahvi.net/?p=2432

Grim Tides 10 - Tim Pratt

"The first thing Crapsey heard when he woke up, slumped on the couch in Dr. Husch’s office, was Elsie Jarrow saying, “They’re so adorable when they sleep. Like lobotomized little puppies.” “Do you mean Crapsey and Nicolette in particular,” Dr. Husch said, “or just… those who require sleep?” “I know!” Elsie said. “I love unclear antecedents too!”" 4 out of 5 http://marlamason.net/grimtides/?p=93

Not so easy he finds and ends up in less than salubrious circumstances, befriends a safecracker, works as a waiter at an underworld dive and keeps running into the same well to do girl. Eventually he decides to pad his resume and fib about being an efficiency expert. Getting all he knows from a secondhand 25c paperback he gets a job at a company where his methods discover fraud. 3 out of 5 http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/3475

Viewpoint: The small business of 2063 - Alastair Reynolds

T'was the Season for Li'l Santa - Augie de Blieck

"WAS 2012 THE YEAR OF THE CREATOR? A year ago this week, I wrote a Pipeline titled "2012: The Rise of the Creator?" It wasn't exactly a trailblazing editorial. It wasn't the biggest leap in logic. It just followed all of the tides that were rising at that point in the comics industry. It correctly predicted that Image Comics would be the "Comics Publisher of the Year" for 2012. DC stumbled after initial success with the New 52. Marvel is having a bit of a changing of the guard with its creators right now, but had some great successes in its publishing program. Problem is, it feels like more of the same old, same old. Image pumped out a string of surprise hits and welcomed in a series of new projects from new names, or names that had since gone on to Marvel and DC and were now returning." 4 out of 5 http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=36342

Reflects on the First Eight Months of Thrillbent - Mark Waid

"Robot 6: What has been the hardest part of all this so far? Mark Waid: Besides working for free on my own end of it, the hardest part by far has been making the jump from print to digital in terms of story construction. When I started out with this idea over a year ago, I still had in the back of my head that we would be doing print comics out of digital comics fairly easily. I wanted to do comics in a 4/3 ratio so we could stack one on another and make a comics page. Trying not to do in digital what I can’t do in print was such a bad mistake. If you’re going to do it, do it right, go all in, is what I learned. That was a hard leap to make, but once I made it, it was very liberating. It made me a lot less cautious, and it narrowed my focus so I no longer had to feel that I was serving both masters, print and digital. Then being able to use different techniques like rack focus, repeating panels, pop-up dialogue, that you can’t do in print becomes a reality, and it made us all the more adventuresome—I don’t mean just me, I mean my collaborators. I made the mandate fairly early on: Don’t worry about print; we’ll figure it out later." 4.5 out of 5 http://robot6.comicbookresources.com/2012/12/mark-waid-reflects-on-the-first-eight-months-of-thrillbent/
