If you haven't seen it yet (I hear it's gone viral in some circles) here's a post on the hazards of even a 'simple' translation.

My little linguistic heart is very amused.

So, I wrote a thing. It's called GENRE: A Short Reference Guide and Dictionary.

I love cross genre work, so I'm always looking up genres I'm not familiar with. But do you think I can find lists? Of all the terms, with definitions? NO, I COULD NOT. Romance, yes! SF, yes! Both together? No way.

Hence this book.

I also babble on about how structure and genre are related, but most of the thing is lists and the dictionary.

I am much happier now. :)

The album this song was released on dropped in 2013, but I just heard it for the first time, so.

Steampunk rock. SO MUCH FUN.

Finished several editing jobs lately; here's one.

A few old stories, a few new ones, and one heck of a lot of work! And fun, of course. (Never forget the fun.)

So, I have a friend named Susan, and she and her husband are trying to bring a pair of steam locomotives to Big Valley, Alberta, for Canada's 150th.

BIG PROJECT, yes.

Anyway, she would like some support, so I'm spreading the word. There's a Facebook page, a website, an Indiegogo campaign, and a YouTube video. I don't know what the Facebook address is, but the others are:

AAAAAA!

If you haven't seen this yet, this is way cool. It's a language generator. Click a button and ta-da! 2000 words and a basic grammar are yours.

Y'know, if certain parties put as much effort into writing good fiction as they did into gaming the Hugo Awards, they just might win a Hugo Award.

Someone had to say it.

Have you ever wanted your own 3D printed globes of the planets -- and some moons! -- of the solar system?

They're available!
