Tuckerization Contest

August 30, 2020

I’m running a Tuckerization contest on my Patreon page.

You may have heard the term before; Tuckerization is using the name of a real person as a character in a book. It comes from the author Wilson Tucker, a science fiction writer and prolific sf fan and editor, who often used the names of his friends for his characters.

In the next two weeks I’ll be posting scenes from various of my novels on my Patreon page. Out of all the scenes I post, four will involve Tuckerizations. If you are the first person to get all four, you can select any book or record you wish from the Starflight Music and Books catalogue and I will send it to you.

I’ve posted pictures of the downed trees and giant branches around our house from Isais. More details and a “travelogue” around the fall out are on my patreon page.

It’s the “Astra Daimon Round Table: Conversation with Other Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers” panel,

Isais Paid a Visit …

August 5, 2020

We’re recovering here from the blast of tropical storm Isais. It didn’t dump all that much rain on Long island, but wow, the winds. Although they weren’t hurricane speed, apparently they came fairly close. Trees and power lines are down everywhere.

I won’t be able to participate in the Con-tinual programming panel “SciFi Doesn’t Have to be Hard” because they recorded it yesterday during the storm when my power was out. So I had no access to Zoom. We’re looking into alternate ways for me to take part in the virtual con. Stay tuned here for updates!
