SciFi updates

As many of my readers know, my real love is science fiction and fantasy, and I plan to mostly write in those genres from now on. I got sidetracked from that pursuit in college, because most academic types frown upon scifi, fantasy, and horror. Never mind that one of the most loved books of the twentieth century was Lord of the Rings, or that many of the works in the literary canon are scifi, fantasy, or horror (1984 and A Clockwork Orange, for example, or certain works by Edgar Allan Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Jonathan Swift). Of course, most profs come up with convoluted ways of not referring to them by their genre.

I’ve just added more sf/f resources to my sf/f page.
