Our CONvergence Schedules: Where We'll Be and How You Can Join Us! (walk-by sessions pending)

The entire male crew will be at CONvergence this 4th of July weekend.  Why the guys?  We drew straws.  Or it was entirely random.  Whichever sounds more interesting. In any case, I’ve taken the liberty to compile a day-by-day schedule of all of our…

In his latest book review, @princejvstin tackles The Deaths of Tao by @wes_chu!

After being bonded with the alien Tao, making good strides against the Genjix, and becoming a better man in the process, physically and otherwise, you’d think Roen Tan would have it made. Instead, several years after the events of The Lives of Tao, Roen…

In his latest column, @charlesatan talks about the World SF Blog (one yr later), World SF, and more:

By the time this post goes up — at least in my part of the world — it will exactly be a year since the World SF Blog was retired. Its success, in my opinion, lies in the hands of the editor-in-chief of the site, Lavie Tidhar, and the efforts of the…

In her latest post, @omgjulia talks about a few interesting project using limericks! Check it out:
