    There was a mockumentary from 2004 about the South winning the war. The film is wonderfully subversive. This is the trailer. C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America (2004) Official Trailer #1 - Mockumentary Movie HD https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gIqxBn1oLAY This is the video...

    Another way to look at what Damian @199 was alluding to: "Something very unpleasant and strange happened..." Is it just me, or is that a much more disturbing thought than it should be? Looking at it through the lens of...

    Watch the video I linked to above. "Don't be a Sucker." Ever since I was a little kid, I saw the world was filled with "Con Men" and "Believers". This was pre-school so I didn't have those words, but looking...

    whitroth @81: For decades, I would have dreams based on the story. I'd be the old man in the black suit with the cane. It was only when I saw the video the other day that I remembered where that...

    I love doing book design, and studying interesting ways to do stuff. Jeff VanderMeer did a book where the actual story occurred in the footnotes. I think that it was _City of Saints and Madmen_? I'll have to pull it...

    PageMaker, yes, that was the expensive software we ended up with, after we published the book and shifted to PCs. We did the Standards & Specs book on a Dec mainframe, All-in-One office system. We tricked the laser printer into...

    More on the power of "manuscript" pages as a tool: When I write by hand, I use a standard "wide rule", 70 page spiral, filling only one side. If I fill one page and start the next, I have to...

    From the Long Ago and the Far Away, the classic manuscript page is the best for many things. This is based on typewriters. Manuscript Preparation http://www.sfwa.org/2008/11/manuscript-preparation/ The form is incredibly useful as a tool, not just for submissions. Think of...

    Neil W said: (They have mostly convinced me the afterword would be better as an essay on a website, and should be replaced with something shorter and funnier). That's neat, I'll have a unique version. I seem to buy odd...

    Neil, I've read the sample of your book, I want more. I hope that this is the start of a series, because despite your afterword, there is huge desire for this style of book and era. Your afterword felt like...

    Charlie, you missed the "YMMV", and who said I was talking to you or Bear. You guys are already trapped in the geas of Trad publishing. Dave_the_Proc, see my answer to Charlie above. His "misconceptions" are literally that. Hint: Charlie's...

    I've always seen the Marvel movies as fruiting bodies beginning to spore. The first twenty years of Marvel was awesome, then it rotted and died in the 90s. Since then they basically were producing comics by recycling the prior stories,...

    I had a rant about Mo in The Annihilation Score that started my insight about her. Mo is a classic "poor me" type. http://www.antipope.org/charlie/blog-static/2015/07/that-annihilation-score-spoile.html Go to the page and read my rant at #571. That's where it all started for...
