The dying is fun, but I did get tired of the starting from scratch every time thing. Frustration and disappointment has to strike a balance with time invested.

Insect Alternating Tripod Gait
 
Great animation demonstration of the "alternating tripod" gait that ants and other insects use. From http://www.cals.ncsu.edu/course/ent425/library/tutorials/external_anatomy/locomotion.html

Intransit Chapter One

Good news guys, I have more fiction coming your way, finally! The first chapter of my new book Intransit is available now to my patrons at http://www.patreon.com/GordMcLeod, and will be available to everyone in roughly a week's time, give or take.

Intransit is a sort of spiritual successor to The Ship of the Unforgotten, though it is not an actual sequel. It's the story of the inhabitants, staff and crew of a generation ship who have to try to cope with all of the stresses - physical, emotional and psychological - of a journey that may last many thousands of years.

Once it goes up on the Fiction Improbable site, it will also go up here in this community, so keep your eyes peeled for it!

Coming Soon to Geek Beat Reviews: FTL Advanced Edition

Lots of gaming stuff coming up! FTL (Faster Than Light) has updated to an Advanced Edition with tons of changes. I can't actually promise this one will be soon because frankly I'll probably die long before I find the new stuff, but I'll find out about what the new stuff is and pass it along, at least!

Goodreads Comments & Amazon

Hey folks, just wondering if any of you out there with experience on both +Goodreads and Amazon are aware of whether or not book reviews posted to Goodreads show up on Amazon listings? So far the from inquiries I've made elsewhere it sounds like the answer is no, but there's still some room for doubt. Some sources say yes. What say you?

The Goodreads twitter handler responded to me and confirmed that their comments do not get moved over to Amazon for the time being. Interesting about Shelfari, I'll have to check that. Thanks!

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Man oh man. Just got back from seeing this, and I think it may well have become my new favourite in the entire Marvel mega-series. I won't spoil anything, but... damn.

Your sentiment is mine, as well.  +Gord McLeod I couldn't believe how well it was done.

Story
Tagline
Gord McLeod is a fiction author at Fiction Improbable, an editor and blogger at GeekBeat.TV, and a general sci-fi/fantasy loving tech geek at heart.
Introduction
I'm a game designer looking for new opportunities.
I'm a tech blogger for Livid Lobster at GeekBeat.TV and One Man's Blog.
I won NaNoWriMo 2011 after live-writing my stories. I continue to write daily at http://www.fictionimprobable.com where all of my work is available for free.
I have terrible difficulty deciding between writing under the name Gord McLeod or Gordon S. McLeod. Currently, Gord McLeod is winning.
Once upon a time, I designed video games for Ganz Studios, the makers of WebKinz and the announced Tail Towns project. Many many moons ago, I wrote and drew a short-lived forgotten web comic.

Bragging rights
Was the first Sword & Laser fan to ever submit a video and appear on the Geek & Sundry video show.

Excellent food and service, despite it being a relatively busy Wednesday night with only one server. I had the smoky cheddar bacon burger, and it's easily one of the best burgers in the area. Would certainly go back again.
