New review for Digital Rights

‘Digital Rights’ my Writers of the Future winning story just received a new review today. “Digital Rights kept me interested. I was hooked right away, and I didn’t stop reading until I finished, despite its being fairly long for a short story at 12K words. There are a number of really good things about the […]

Sacred Legends

My upcoming On Spec story ‘Touch the Dead’ as well as the novel I recently completed both incorporate some aspects of Cree mythology. I had previously found a few Cree myths online but to better understand the tales which were influencing my ‘fictional world’ I bought a copy of Sacred Legends By Carl Ray and […]

Read this Week

BioShock

So I’ve finally finished another game out of the massive stack of games I collected while working for BioWare. I first started BioShock about two years ago, playing enough of it to get an initial first impression. Anyone who has played Dragon Age* will see a few of features influenced by BioShock, including the notification […]

Review On Spec #77

A little late in reading this one as I just finished it before #78 arrived but I had to clear a backlog of other stuff first. Wish I hadn’t waited so long because this is certainly one of my more favorite issues of On Spec in the last while. The Resident Guest By Sandra Glaze […]
