"increase the Flash Gordon noise"

Happy birthday to firiath! May your day today be wonderful and your year to come be fantastic!

A couple of quick notes:

* I highly recommend checking out the Free Speculative Fiction Online website for links to excellent stories from the genre's past and present (posted with the authors' and/or publishers' consent).

* If you have any interest in Clark Ashton Smith, the writers he influenced (including H.P. Lovecraft), and/or genre history, I also recommend The Eldritch Dark, a website site designed to facilitate both scholars and fans in their appreciation and study of Clark Ashton Smith and his works.

* Speaking of websites, I've updated my official site, including my list of favorite links.

* Reminder: on Tuesday, February 19 (tomorrow), I will be a guest on the "First Talk with Hal Row" radio program from 8-9am (Eastern) on 1290AM WHKY in Hickory, North Carolina. The show is streamed live online here. Questions can be submitted online here. I will be interviewed along with Lisa Miller, Executive Director of the Women's Resource Center, about the First American: Voices event we are producing at the end of the month (free and open to the public). I will also be talking about my presentation and book signing at that event, and my work in Native American and Science Fiction/Fantasy studies in general.

"Increase the Flash Gordon noise and put more science stuff around."

In case you weren't aware, the MST3K movie is being rereleased on DVD in May. So if you want a copy on DVD, you'll no longer have to know a person who knows a person and obtain it by going to a bad part of town with a briefcase full of small, unmarked bills. My favorite quote was, "I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid, and I went ahead anyway."

An item that may be of interest to those on your Friends List who are also gamer and/or anime geeks. As I noted in this post, I recently obtained a relatively new role-playing game called CthulhuTech. In a nutshell, it combines the Cthulhu Mythos with mecha anime. The best part is that the mixture actually works.

What brilliant news about the MST3K movie! I didn't know that. I guess I can call off my goons currently skulking around in the shady alleys, looking to score a copy for me. I'll tell them to focus on getting the Star Wars Christmas Special instead. ;)

My favorite quote was, "I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid, and I went ahead anyway."

LOL! That's classic. I love it.

Thanks SO much for pointing out your great post. (I apologize for being so behind at the moment.) I'm going to link to it so others can find it, as well; you're right, I definitely think it would be of interest. I'm glad to hear the combination works. Thanks!

That free speculative fiction archive is fantastic--thank you for the link, dear. Now I know where to go when I'm feeling too terrestrial.
