Sci Phi Journal

Recommended Posts

This might be of interest to some people here who like to think deeply about the issues that sci-fi stories raise. It's a new monthly journal combining sci-fi and philosophy in various interesting ways. Take a look and see if it's something that will interest you.

(I have to admit my bias here, I really want to see this journal succeed, and not just because I have a story published in issue 2 and beyond :) )

By the way, issue 2 (with the start of my serial in it, as well as a lot of other excellent stuff) came out on the first of this month.

Thanks guys, I think it's the best opening I've ever written, (and the rest isn't bad either :-P ). Chapters 4 and 5 will be coming out in issue 3 of the magazine in January. Canshow, there's a link to the novel's sales page in the menu bar at the top of the page there (Nobility Among Us), you can read up to the start of chapter 4 for free on the amazon page.

Thanks, Derek! This is a really exciting time for me, and it's all thanks to roleplaying here that I found I had a talent for storytelling in the first place.

It's been a long process of learning and developing the craft (and I still have a long way to go, with new opportunities and challenges coming along all the time), but it started here with Derek's awesome sandbox that just begged you to create stories within it.

I still can't quite believe I'm a published author now. It's a weird mixture of feelings.

Any rapidly diminishing spare time I have is going into writing, but through the journal I've joined a group of sci-fi writers who will be holding an online roundtable discussion via google hangout tomorrow. It'll be streamed live from 10.30 am EST tomorrow:

So if anyone wants to listen in, they'll be welcome to.

So if you haven’t grabbed any of these issues yet, now would be the ideal time to do so.

There'll be another Beyond the Mist-related announcement soon...
