An anthology of optimistic, near future SF

The Week in Tweet, Week 10

I realise it’s been very quiet here in the last couple of weeks. Lots of catching up to come from today onwards. First a few overdue Outshine posts.

Monday March 2:

[Quote for the Monday] “We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims.”

[Source] R. Buckminster Fuller (1895 – 1983)/20th century engineer, mathematician, and architect.

[Ed] Outshine slush: 28 subs in week 9; 16 by men, 12 by women. 2 acceptances. Humourous slot filling up OK: intelligent, upbeat SF needed!

Optimism in literature around the World, and SF in Particular, part 2: The Philippines: http://is.gd/lvcj (thanks Charles Tan!)

Tuesday March 3:

Loud & proggy Potsdam 3-piece blend post-hardcore and echo-soaked alt-rock to great effect. Shoe-gazi? Honest, vibrant, original, good.

[#SoundBytes] Crushed Neocons by The Antikaroshi/ http://is.gd/lDZw / Exile on Mainstream Records: http://is.gd/lEbI / Hat-tip to @ko123 !

Wednesday March 4:

Thoughts like gladiators in the arena of time, Fight to create the new paradigm. Thumbs down it will suck, Thumbs up it will SHINE.

[Bio] Inspiring author, aspiring Bohemian, babyboomer, rock chick raver, laughing babushka www.evamariachapman.com .

Friday March 6:

[Quote for the Friday] If with water you fill up your glasses/You’ll never write anything wise/For ale is the horse of Parnassus/Which hurries a bard to the skies.

[Source] Thomas Moore (1779-1852)/English writer.

Saturday March 7:

Rusty tracks mark the path of her tears. He wipes her cheeks with an oil-damp cloth. Penance for making her cry.

[Bio] Rhonda loves to write. She can be found at http://www.rhondaparrish.com .

Sunday March 8:

A delightful off-kilter book whose pinstripe-wearing title Magician will make some think of Doctor Who. Humor, plus fun art and characters.

[#ShineComics] MYSTERIUS THE UNFATHOMABLE #1 & #2, script by Jeff Parker, Art by Tom Fowler; Wildstorm, 2009, 32pp, $2.99.
