Guest Blogging, Wiki-ing, and the like

I feel like I must have mentioned this before, but looking back it seems maybe not. Anyway, this month I’ve been guest blogging at the Carl Brandon Society blog. I think this is going to become a regular thing as it seems like they’re very pleased with the lists of POC fiction I’ve been posting.

By the way, if you’re POC and have short fiction coming out in 2009, please let me know so I can include you in future lists. Instructions at this link. If you already had something come out in 2009 and missed my announcement before, you can add your story yourself to the Carl Brandon wiki. There’s also a 2008 short fiction entry.

At some point I’d like to start listing novels on the wiki. But it may take someone other than me starting that project. Though if I continue blogging at CBS, then another thing I want to start doing is mini author interviews whenever a writer of color has a book coming out. Something similar to the author spotlights I did at Fantasy Magazine. A 4 – 6 stock questions that hopefully elicit interesting answers. It’ll be a quick and easy way to start keeping a list of who’s publishing what and when. Plus, promotion!

And finally, if you will all please head over to this post about artists of color in SF/F — I’m trying to create a list. I hope it will also go up on the wiki someday. I only have two comments, sad! I know there are many artists of color out there. Please add your favorites or add yourself.

    Elan Vital is a wonderful story.

    I would not have read it, or have even known of its existence, save for recent widely commented upon events.

    So an ill wind blew some good.

    Was EV at all inspired by Dan Simmons “The River Styx Runs Upstream”?

    How long have you been writing/publishing? When did you attend Clarion?

    Thanks!

    Kim, thank you very much! I have not yet read the Simmons piece, but now I’m curious to see it.

    I’ve been writing since high school, mumblebum years ago ;) But only seriously in SF since 2000 or so. I went to Clarion West in 2003.
