Eric Knight has another great writing post this week; you can find it here. If you’re not familiar with Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, take a look at his example and become so, and if you are familiar, it’s definitely worth a revisit.
Black Gate Update
I hope everyone is enjoying their Black Gate 10s.Ã‚Â What, you don’t have one? GoÃ‚Â remedy that! If you want to chat about it, use a link to the right and visit the newsgroup.Responses to some of the submissions I’ve forwarded to John have started going out as he sorts through a horde of treasures. I’ve started into the August-October slush, and am almost through readying the gaming and book review material for issue 11. John has long since readied the fiction for the issue and I believe all the art is in. In short, stay tuned.
I will be meeting jolly John O’Neill, the mighty John Hocking, the aforementioned Knightly Eric and hopefully a few others at the Windy City Pulp and Paperback con this coming weekend; we will convene in the Black Gate rooftop headquarters, high over downtown Chicago.
As far as Black Gate presence at other cons this year the only one I know we’ll both be attending for sure is the World Fantasy Con. I MAY be going to Archon this year in St. Louis, but the summer schedule is pretty full right now already. I need to decide soon, as I hear hotels are already full up anywhere close to the con.
