As announced earlier, this blog will host an open space once a month to field questions and encourage discussion among my readers, and this is the week. All the standard rules apply — no profanity, no sales pitches, no trolling, no rudeness, no long screeds proclaiming the infallible truth of fill in the blank — but since there’s no topic, nothing is off topic.
Two notes before we get going. First, MYTHIC Magazine — the quarterly fantasy and SF mag published by Founders House, the same firm that’s bringing out the collected Archdruid Report essays — has launched a subscription drive in the hope of boosting the pay it can offer to its writers. For obvious reasons, I’m a fan of decent pay for writers 😉 and MYTHIC is shaping up to be a first-rate venue for the kind of fantasy and SF that breaks new ground, rather than rehashing such done-to-death tropes as space travel. If you don’t subscribe already, please consider doing so — and whether or not you’re a subscriber, please spread the word! The details may be found here.
Second, I’m delighted to announce that one of my readers has completed a translation of my novel Star’s Reach into German. All that’s needed now is a German-language publisher willing to get it into print. If, dear reader, you happen to work for such a publisher, let me know; if you know of a publisher you think would be interested, ditto; if you know somebody, pass the word. Danke schön!
With that said, have at it…
