Spammers Live in Vain

Hey guys, the Lovecraft anthology I'm in is out! Whispers from the Abyss (.01 Publishing) includes stories by Nick Mamatas, Silvia Moreno-Garcia, Greg Van Eekhout, Tim Pratt, and many more. My story "You Will Never Be the Same" is a mash-up of Lovecraft and the seriously weird SF of Cordwainer Smith. It was a real departure for me, trying to ape someone else's style while using yet another someone's plot elements, but I think it works. (Besides, Nick already got dibs on DFW.) I'm thrilled to be sharing a line-up with these folks, and I hope you check it out!

In fund-raising news, the speculative fiction podcasts PodCastle, Escape Pod, and Pseudopod (collectively known as the Escape Artists) are in financial trouble and can use your support! My story "Hand of God" appeared in PodCastle last September, and while I don't listen to very much audio fiction myself (most people seem to listen on their commutes, and I ride a bicycle to work on the most dangerous streets in North America), these three magazines are a great resource. They podcast everything from new fiction to classics. If you like audio fiction, do yourself a favor and chip in a few bucks. Specific links to each magazine are here.

  2. The website is looking bit flashy and it catches the visitors eyes. Design is pretty simple and a good user friendly interface.jogos friv gratis 2019

  3. But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we. And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.

  4. The cultural history of Inter-war Europe is filled with such powerful and influential interpretations of a reality that defeats the human capacity to imagine evil. Take Picasso's Guernica for instance. In June 1937, Picasso finished painting the Modernist classic in response to another April tragedy: the bombing of the Spanish city of Guernica during the civil war. It was his anguished creativity reacting to George Steer's eyewitness account of the incident.

  5. I have gone through your post and came to know that it is regarding the illusion of control. But this concept is not at all clear to me. I would like to know more on this topic. Please provide it
