Bit of a weird week over here in the lair of Juggler. Hours at work freakishly increased (Worked 7 days straight last week, called in twice this week and did a double shift Monday) but I was able to finish the rewrites on one of my stories and sent it to my beta so YAY!! » 3/18/15 11:00am 3/18/15 11:00am

King of Thieves Stole My Weekend

Star Rogue: King of Thieves starts a new series set in the universe of Evan C. Currie's earlier Odyssey One series (starting with Into the Black). It's a return to the parent series' roots, a tale of science fiction exploration without the fantastical elements that crept into it along the way. » 3/15/15 7:06pm 3/15/15 7:06pm

Chapter Names, Yea or Nea?

When you're reading a book do you like when authors name their chapters, or would you prefer to have a simple "Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3" naming scheme? I've been going back and forth on it for awhile now and need some input. » 3/06/15 4:44pm 3/06/15 4:44pm

All Our Worlds: a Database of Diverse Science Fiction

Saw this on boing boing; someone did a crapload of work compiling this! It's a "database of science fiction and fantasy books that demonstrate diversity in sexuality/gender, race, disability, and other aspects". » 2/05/15 12:03am 2/05/15 12:03am

What Was The First "Adult" Book You Read?

Nowadays, the definition of books for kids and grownups is pretty vague. Lots of people over 30 read YA fiction for pleasure, while plenty of adult writers write novels aimed at younger readers. In the meantime, the "intermediate" stage — a massive category when I worked in book retail a few years ago, and a huge… » 1/12/15 7:55pm 1/12/15 7:55pm

Twas The BookClub Before Christmas

Twas the WednesdayBookClub before Christmas and all throughout the O-Deck, not a commenter was stirring, not even GeeseJuggler who is typically the one roaming about but who is probably getting ready for work at the moment and had the foresight to write this on Tuesday so she wouldn't forget again.
