So! News for the week. Biggest news is undoubtedly that my cupcake novella, Dangerous Jade, has reached release-candidate draft status and is now undergoing proofing. I can tell you about that. What I can't tell you about, just yet, is that the artist lined up to do the cover and interior illustrations has a name… Continue reading Workblog for the Week, again.
So. The Terry Pratchett thing is, of course, my big news that many people will care about, but the news a few people will care about - the progress on my novel project - is pretty good too. This week's been a comparatively short one, in that it only started on Wednesday, but so far… Continue reading Workblog for the week
Well. Okay. That was extraordinarily thinglike. I've just returned from Drury Lane (or nearly Drury Lane, in any case) where 'An Evening With Terry Pratchett' was held. Theatre, packed to the brim with people, myself in the absolute nosebleed seats in the balcony back row, all staring down there as the man himself and his… Continue reading An evening with Terry Pratchett + Tomorrow.
*Stretches.* It's interesting how completely an activity which is only debatably 'work' can take over one's life. According to my daily work log (It's useful knowing what I did, and it's morale boosting to be able to put in big events), since the last time I wrote one of these I have: Completed the second… Continue reading Ongoing ongoings.
So, in semi-recent news, Askazi Myths is on a brief little hiatus before the next arc starts (an arc I am confident will turn out awesome) and the artist, Tanzenlicht, has applied some pressure and more or less decided that people should see the scripts behind the comic. So, now you can read the scripts… Continue reading News, scary things, recent reading.
For those wondering, I am fine, everything else is fine, it is, however, remarkably distracting and I am incapable of getting anything useful done.
The week has been busy, and yet not busy, simultaneously. Little has been achieved, though I did cook up a story concept which I am - now that I've thought the thing through in its entirety - not entirely convinced works as a story. I shall see if I work on it further or abandon… Continue reading fooz on a friday.
Since last we spoke, gentle listener: The weekly Askazi Myths page update has appeared. That Fox And Otter Duo have produced another episode of Unsheathed, in which they get the mysterious Kit 'Techwolf' Silver to talk a LOT more than usual. I have recieved two rejections, gotten someone's manuscript back to them with a whole… Continue reading Generic Check In
'Filling Up The Void' - Richard E. Gropp - Interesting short story, primarily notable for presenting a furry protagonist and raaather adult themes in what is, ultimately, a fairly mainstream SF venue. Ending is rather telegraphed, and if you read a lot of sci fi you're not going to meet much new, but the execution's… Continue reading Things Found: Short Stories
Hello! I'm Malcolm 'foozzzball' Cross, and I'm experimenting with turning my personal website into a blog. You probably already know me, thus how you found this, but if you don't... I'm awesome. So far I've posted a couple of bits of older fiction as 'Ephemera and Vignettes', and plan to get some of the novellas… Continue reading Updates and experimentation.
