An anthology of optimistic, near future SF

The Week in Tweet, Week 7

As @outshine continues to be a beacon in the Twitterian maelstrom:

MondayFebruary 9:

[Quote for the Monday] “The best that an individual can do is to concentrate on what he or she can do, in the course of a burning effort to do it better.”

[Source] Elizabeth Bowen (1899 – 1973)/Irish novelist and short-story writer/Seven Winters.

Tuesday February 10:

[Ed] Outshine slush stats: 22 subs in week 6; 12 by men, 10 by women. 2 acceptances. Cruising along: don’t be afraid to send something!

Post-rock, poetry and paranoia meet up to talk drunken malice and dark deeds dreamt. A portrait gallery in brittle guitar and spoken word.

Wednesday February 11:

Anxiety: heart pounding, I scream. Mommy comes and gives picopill. Now, NanoGargoyle guards dreams: no more nightmares. Sound sleep. Peace.

[Bio] MD, writer, co-editor in French SF mag GALAXIES. Spends too much time dreaming and her house is always a mess. http://is.gd/gdmv

Thursday February 12:

A Lifetime movie passing as a horror flick about two sisters who wear bikinis and bicker a lot. Unexciting, uninvolving, and unendurable.

Friday February 13:

[Quote for the Friday] “It’s 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes. It’s dark and we’re wearing sunglasses. Hit it.”

[Source] John Belushi (1949 – 1982)/U.S. actor and comedian/As Jake Blues/The Blues Brothers (Dan Aykroyd and John Landis).

Saturday February 14:

He kicks his shoes off the cliff: “Good riddance—not planning to land. Ever.” His new design wings gleam in the sun, as his stomach grumbles

[Bio] Grant Stone lives in New Zealand. Which is handy, since that’s where all his stuff is. http://d1sc0r0b0t.blogspot

Sunday February 15:

[Ed] Announcing a graphic novels review feature by David Alexander McDonald called ShineComics. First review after this!

Flash cards of the Apocalypse: by turns brilliant, frustrating, surreal, confusing, polarizing and challenging, the DCU as magician’s work.

[#ShineComics] FINAL CRISIS 1-7, SUPERMAN BEYOND 3D 1-2 by Grant Morrison, J.G. Jones, et al; DC Comics 2008-2009 / http://twurl.nl/t7ajcm

Now there is a crazy project in the works — let’s call it a Saturday Night Special for the moment — that, if it comes to fruition, will blow some minds into tweet ecstasy. Watch this space, or @outshine or @shineanthology
