An anthology of optimistic, near future SF

The Week in Tweet, Week 11

Where @outshine falters a bit:

[Source] Orville Wright (1871 – 1848)/American inventor and aviation pioneer.

[Ed] Outshine slush stats: 28 subs in week 10; 14 by men, 14 by women. 2 acceptances. Humour slot filling up nice, prose poems needed!

Tuesday March 10:

[Bio] Jason Sanford writes SF/F. His fiction and essays can be found at http://www.jasonsanford.com .

Thursday March 12:

Sunday March 15:

So far the best of Marvel’s pulp-universe “Noir” minis, with atmospheric art and a grim, clever story that smartly redefines the characters.
