I have bookmarked this page and will be taking more extensive notes later...
 
SF and Age of Sail authors will both love this. It's a synopsis of the different classes of ships in naval fleets and their typical function. With plenty of examples. A very handy reference for anyone dealing with military fleets of some kind.
Yup, spaceships again.  Between Star Citizen, the new Halo, the new Star Wars, a couple of key mods for Sins of a Solar Empire that I keep up with and have done some voice work on, and Destiny...

I found it extremely useful. I knew a good bit of it already (or maybe instinctively, or maybe I've watched too many old sci-fi and war movies), but it was cool seeing it spelled out. I'm secretly working on a sci-fi naval epic, and some of the world-building has been daunting. I've had a devil of a time classifying the ship the main characters man, and this seemed to help narrow it down. (For the curious, it's likely a cross between a cruiser and a carrier, since it operates independently quite often but is also functionally a fighter carrier. The main protagonist and many of his pals start out as fighter pilots.)

A full decade before I started writing what eventually became the Curveball "prose comic," I originally tried to make it a webcomic. Obviously that didn't happen (can't draw, couldn't find an artist) but I actually did work on it.

Today I found the script. Or... well, probably a script, since I think I wrote a few. This is one of the early ones, written in 2000 or 2001 I think.

I'm pleased to announce that the Pen and Cape Society has published its first podcast!

THROWING THE GUN, Episode One!

In this debut episode:

 - we discuss "unpopular superheroes"
 - we discuss the "Throwing the Gun" trope
 - I claim the latest Superman movie wasn't all that bad, and pretty much nobody agrees with me.

Part Four of Curveball Issue 23 went up this morning, so that's a wrap.

Now I have to get started on Issue 24, which--like Issue 12--will be double-sized. Ugh...

Those of you with experience in Creative Commons licensing, I could use a few pointers here. I have some material I'm trying to pick from to use as intro/outro music for a podcast and I want to make sure I comply with the proper licenses.

There's a lot of music out there distributed under CC licenses, and I've found a number of tracks that are mostly under two different versions:

CC-A-NC-SA -- Attribution required, noncommercial use only, share alike

CC-A-C-SA -- Attribution required, commercial use permitted, share alike

My assumption is that whatever license the music is using will determine the license I use for my work, due to the "SA" part. So, for example, if I use a track that is "C-SA" the podcast must also be "C-SA," and if I use a track that is "NC-SA," the podcast must also be "NC-SA." Is that assumption correct?

I'm not honestly sure.  I'd reference the creativecommons website first.

Do you hate taxes? Well, you're not alone. Pretty much everyone I know hates taxes. That's why April 15 is usually such a lousy day in the United States.

That's why this April 15th, after choking down your bile as you force yourself to send off money to your Least Favorite Uncle, you should treat yourself to a StoryBundle! And have I got a StoryBundle for you...

Also: Pay Me, Bug! gets a new cover.

Issue 24 of Curveball, in it's ENTIRETY, is now available on the site! It's been a while since all four parts of an issue were actually published in the month it's supposed to be published in. Yeah, sure, on the East Coast I have about half an hour before the month ends, but that's 30 MINUTES OF NOT-APRIL, BABY.

... of course all the ebook versions won't be ready till April. But I'm ignoring that because it interferes with my thesis.

Familiar with CleanReader? It's an Android and iOS app that can censor bad words for you while you're reading an ebook. Today on Twitter K. B. Spangler and I talked about it for a bit.
I'm going to add a little context, but for the most part I think the tweets should speak to themselves. Yesterday I heard about a service called CleanReader, but didn't pay too much attention to it. This morning K.B. Spangler, a fantastic web cartoonist AND author, had some very clear opinions ...
