Twist And ...


Welcome to the Friday shout-out edition (yeah, I didn't know I had such a thing either until today).

Kudos to Cheryl Mills for sticking to her guns and not down-submitting her story to a non-paying market.

Congrats to Jonathan Gillespie whose story Eee (which I had the pleasure of critiquing, or as it were, not critiquing since it was written so well) can now be read at Afterburn SF.

A big 'Hey, Cool' to TVTropes.org (via SF Signal) of many, many, many SF plot devices to avoid.

And finally, a hearty 'You Go, Grrrl' to DD. Thanks for reading the blog and good luck on your new adventure. As the old, French-Canadian retail saying goes: May your gun never jam, may the box be well organized, and may you never get the taxable order.

Some Turkey City Lexicon stuff in your SF Tropes.

So what I linked to is a trope of tropes?

Found the lexicon at SFWA. Or at least a version of it.

Thanks a bunch, Todd, for the shout-out. It is much appreciated. And if you have a banner for your site, hurl it in my general direction and I'll slap it in my "plugs" section.

My pleasure, Jonathan. Thanks for stopping by.

Banners? My goodness, I'm lucky to even get a post up once a week, never mind banners. :-)

Totally off topic, but I got home this weekend to find my nifty prizes from the summer reading contest.

Excellent swag.

What a delayed thanks this is! I hope all is fantastic in Mass. Be careful, this little comment may open the door to many more. Have you seen Across the Universe yet?

Well, hey there Ms. DD! How are you?

You are more than welcome to make any comments, especially if they tell me what-for.

I've added Across the Universe to the Netflix thingy. Thanks for reminding me.

Send an e-mail if you have time. I'd love to hear more about your trip.
