  1. Cool, I'll be interested to hear what you think. It starts a little slow, then gets more interesting towards the end. I actually mention this place in the interview, but for some inexplicable reason I called the game 3000AD instead of Battlecruiser 3000AD. Sorry about that, chalk it down to kids disrupting my sleep cycles
  2. My first internet radio interview! We talk a little bit about 9/11 (since that's the day it was broadcast), and then discuss superversive fiction, my books, my writing process and how I started out. http://apiusman.blogspot.cz/2016/09/the-catholic-geek-poetry-and.html
  3. There's a free ebook out of my picks of the best story and article from each of last year's issues, available here: http://www.sciphijournal.com/news-20/
  4. There's a new kindle countdown deal on the book (and a first one on the second poetry collection), only 99 cents this week. https://benzwycky.com/2016/05/13/kindle-countdown-deals-on-nobility-among-us-and-heroes-and-wonders/
  5. The second edition of this book is now available: https://benzwycky.com/2016/04/10/nobility-among-us-second-edition-is-now-live/
  6. For those interested, Sci Phi Journal has been nominated for best semi prozine on two different recommendation lists (and another site I'm involved with, superversivesf.com, has been nominated for best fanzine), here and here. Various people from both groups have been nominated in a number of other categories (best novel, best fancast, best new writer, best short form editor). Somebody wanted to nominate Beyond the Mist for best novel this year, but it was published 4 days too late, so is only eligible for next year.
  7. All three of my books are now available for 99 cents at amazon for a week, links here: http://benzwycky.com/2016/02/12/kindle-countdown-deal-on-all-three-of-my-books/
  8. Thanks.
  9. I have an article in the journal now: http://www.sciphijournal.com/red-dwarfs-inquisitor-and-judgement-day-by-ben-zwycky/
  10. both versions of the novel are now available on amazon, and the ebook version comes free with a purchase of the paperback
  11. The paperback should be ready today or tomorrow, and a lot of people have been saying very nice things about the book over at John C. Wright's blog. In other news, I'm going to be involved in a roundtable discussion tonight at 11pm GMT with Milo Yiannopolis, John C. Wright and some other writers. The subject is the influence of Social Justice Warriors on writing today, this year's Sad Puppies campaign and other related (or random) topics. There's a chance my book might be briefly discussed as well. It'll be streamed on youtube, so people can listen in live or later if they want. http://superversivesf.com/2016/01/08/superversive-sf-livestream-sjws-in-sf-with-milo/
  12. The ebook is out now at amazon, am working on the paperback's cover atm (which can get frustrating when it seems to arbitrarily resize the artwork so it no longer fits in the frame)
  13. The magazine is switching to a different business strategy now, and the first story under the new format should be released today: In other news, the story I had serialized in the magazine is going to be released as a standalone book this week, I'll post here when it goes live. Its cover art looks like this (the board won't let me upload the image, even when I reduce it to 224kb: https://benzwycky.files.wordpress.com/2015/12/beyond-the-mist-3rd-amendment_no-border.jpg (I hope some of you have heard of the guy doing the foreword, I'm really excited about that part)
  14. It was indeed, I had an excellent time.
  15. I actually visited the castle in this video yesterday, it was a long-term wish of mine that my awesome wife made come true for my 40th. The book is also on sale until the end of the month.
