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, I’m delighted to announce that the first volume of the collected Archdruid Report essays, The Coming of Peak Oil, is now in print. This volume includes all the nonfiction I published in “The Archdruid Report” in 2006 and 2007, and can be ordered from Founders House Publishing here. Those of you who’ve already preordered should have your copies shortly.
Second, I’m very pleased to say that the current short story contest is already beginning to field entries, but — so far — at a modest pace. Those of you who are working on your own Old Solar System stories have until January 30 to get them finished; those who haven’t started yet, or are still just considering dipping a toe into the intoxicating waters of wholly imaginary space fantasy, well, what are you waiting for? 😉 The contest details are here.
With that said, have at it…
