Not a bad couple months, overall. 🙂

The Tri-Lateral Commission Fears Us

Fellow Patriots. The New World Order is trembling in their boots. We are making an impact.

This revolution is more than just about Ron Paul. It’s about all of us. It’s about our rights, our freedoms, and The Constitution of These United States of America. Whether you’re for Ron Paul or not never mattered. What matters now is that we come together under the ideals in his message, the same message the Founders, themselves, had. We Paulites can’t do it all on our own (although we’ll certainly make the attempt if we have to). We need the help and support of all our fellow Patriots, regardless of what “side” of the political “fence” you’re on. Because what matters to us is also what matters to you.

Pimping Out The Pimps

Some of you might remember my silly little tale, “Galaxy Store,” that appeared at Ray Gun Revival back in ’06. You may have even heard the podcast recording of it along with an interview on Ray Gun Radio. But there’s a little story about the tale I haven’t yet shared until now….

It originally had a different beginning and ending. Yep. The folks at RGR felt my original beginning and ending needed cut for various reasons. To some extent I agree and disagree with the reasons, but I went ahead and did the cutting because (a) it was my chance to get the story published and (b) I can always have the reprint published with its original beginning and end.

And (b) leads me to this here announcement. Heh. You just knew a shameless plug was coming along, didn’t ya’?

“Galaxy Store,” the uncut version of it, has been accepted by Nancy Fulda who manages Anthology The cool thing about Anthology (aside from the awesome list of stories from writers like Eugie Foster, Eric Flint, Jay Lake, and Alethea Kontis just to name a few), is that you can literally create your own customized anthology of your favorite short stories (like, say, a couple of Eugie’s, a couple of Eric’s, and of course mine). And you don’t just get to pick the stories, but the cover art as well, and you can make your own title. But, of course, if you don’t have the time or are not in the mood to customize your own, you can choose from a list of already-made anthos and just tweak things here and there if you want.

I’ve already done one: an antho full of my top faves (which includes “Galaxy Store”) that I’ve affectionately titled Pimping Out The Pimps.

But you don’t have to buy mine (at the low price of $14.95, which ain’t bad for a customizable antho that’s up to 350 pages of the coolest stories around). You can create your own and fill it with all your faves–which, I’m assuming, will include “Galaxy Store.” 😉

But if you’re just dying to try out some of the coolest stories among the coolest Pimps in the biz, then get Pimping Out The Pimps. In my own little custom antho, you’ll find stories from:

Scott M. Sandridge, aka The Master Pimp
Eugie Foster, aka Queen Pimp of Darkness
Nancy Fulda, aka Emperess of the Empire of Pimps
Eric Flint, aka The Pimp Shaman
Aliette de Bodard, aka Sorceress Pimp
Alethea Kontis, aka Spicy Pimp
Cat Rambo, aka Lady Pimpalot
R. L. Copple, aka Pimper of Space Monkeys
Michel D. Turner, aka The Motorcycle Pimp
Daniel Ausema, aka The Pimp Wizard
Marcie Lynn Tentchoff, aka Ginger-Snap Pimp
Angeline Hawkes, aka Pimping Beauty
Samantha Henderson, aka Princess Pimperella
Ruth Nestvold and Jay Lake, aka The Super-Pimping Duo
Ahmed A. Kahn, aka King Pimp
Marsheila Rockwell, aka the Rockin’ Pimp
T. L. Morganfield, aka Commander Pimp

and last but most certainly not least:

Sean T. M. Stiennon, aka The Pimpin’ Privateer


Hmmm, y’know, this whole Pimp word gives me an idea….

Writerly Update 4/30/08

The casting call for my podiobook brought about very impressive results. Almost all the female roles are taken, and there’s only a few male roles left. There’s only one major character left open, and he might be getting snapped up very soon. Stay tuned for a “role call” of all contributors involved. I also plan to interview most (if not all) of them on my show.

Four submissions sent, and a very pleasant rejection from Alien Skin which also included an apology for their late reply. Some of you Maniacs who’ve been with me a couple years may recall that Alien Skin zapped one of my stories once. Heh. I still remember that. They were so witty about it,  I LMAO’d for a week. I still wear the T-shirt they gave me from time to time. I wore it at MARCon last year.

Speaking of conventions, I’ve registered to be a panel guest to a couple of them–one of the local cons here in Columbus and one of the big ones. So here’s crossing fingers.

Last but certainly not least, I need to mention a column article and a blog post. My blog post, “Divine Inspiration in Secular Media?” can be found at The Misfit Christian Network. And my review of Midnight Syndicate’s The Rage Soundtrack is up at Fear and Trembling.
