  • Commented on Chilling Effects
    As a general response, this isn't about the best way to sell my books, but much more generally about ways to improve the visibility, consideration, and acceptance of women in a wider swath of the genre....

  • Commented on Chilling Effects
    You would get sandwiched between Herbert and Heinlien My books used to sit very close to Larry Niven's, though I'm not sure how much that helped... And thank you!...
  • Commented on Chilling Effects
    Calling (mostly) male readers to be less sexists hasn't really worked over the past decades because most sincerely don't see themselves as such. It IS a complex issue. I've always had a large portion of male readers who've been...

  • Commented on Chilling Effects
    The first edition of The Red went way up in price The result of pricing algorithms after the original edition was pulled from publication. Thanks for checking it out again....
  • Posted Chilling Effects to Charlie's Diary
    When Charlie offered a guest blogging slot, I didn't plan on writing a women-in-science-fiction post. It's not a subject I address very often. As some who commented on Judith's post have mentioned, the issue is complicated--more so now, I think,...

    Maybe we should just as citizns insist that all the Air Conditioners in the House/Senate and their offices be discoonected? Mighty tempting......
  • Commented on The Fumes of Mordor & Other World Building Models
    our fair islands have little or no organized SF base, but there are a few of us! Wonderful to learn, Aloha! Thank you, Steven! I know we've got SF readers around. Making the connection though, can be a challenge....
  • Commented on The Curious Experience of Middle Age
    the most common solution for people in creative fields in the US is to be married to someone with a steady job that has good health benefits. It's one of those jokes that isn't a joke, but one of the...
  • Commented on The Curious Experience of Middle Age
    I've lost track of how many people I knew over the years who were locked into a miserable job/career because it was the only way they could get health care coverage. Yes, the lack of a rational health care system...

  • Posted The Curious Experience of Middle Age to Charlie's Diary
    While wandering around the Internet I discovered an archived story from National Public Radio in the US called "Does Age Quash Our Spirit of Adventure?" The reporter referenced psychology professor Dean Keith Simonton of UC Davis, citing his idea that...

  • Commented on The Fumes of Mordor & Other World Building Models
    If your novel is set in the summer you'll miss a big part of what makes DC so unique. This trip was planned in a rush to get it done before summer arrives, because I know I can't handle that...
  • Commented on The Fumes of Mordor & Other World Building Models
    I wonder how many readers of SF even care about conventions. I suspect the percentage is a small part of the total, but it's a lot easier to meet potential readers at a convention than out in the wild. It's...
  • Commented on The Fumes of Mordor & Other World Building Models
    Roman alphabets as a working model produces some interesting results In Hawaiian, "Tahiti" becomes "Kahiki." I think this is fairly consistent, that the t and k sounds are interchanged. Some years ago, street signs began to reflect correct Hawaiian spelling...
  • Commented on The Fumes of Mordor & Other World Building Models
    Kathleen Ann Goonan’s The Bones of Time was set in Hawaii I believe she was a child when she lived here, though she might have spent time here later. It's been a while since I read The Bones of Time,...
  • Commented on The Fumes of Mordor & Other World Building Models
    What do you think of the original Lilo and Stitch? One of the subtleties of Hawaii is that the term "Hawaiian" refers only to people of native Hawaiian ancestry. To include everyone in the state, it's usually "the people of...

  • Commented on The Fumes of Mordor & Other World Building Models
    You don't normally link "Hawaii" with "post-apocalyptic urban blight." Agreed...in an earlier draft of the post I had a mention of how we were a little short on gritty, dark, noir settings....
  • Commented on The Fumes of Mordor & Other World Building Models
    It is a pity you don't have a "community" there though There are readers, but the organized fan communities that I'm aware of are more focused on anime and film. But yes, you'd have a great time here with your...

    They filmed the cloudscape from the top of a Hawaiian volcano Interesting! They said they filmed it from the top of Haleakala, which is mountain on which I live. It's considered a dormant volcano, with the last eruption several hundred...
