Pen Names, Genre, and Demographics

What's in a name? I've written under two names for years now, and yesterday I decided to add one more to my growing stable (my version of Pokemon Go!). As many do, I started writing under my own name, first for magazine articles back in the 90's. Years later I decided...

Review: Building Harlequin’s Moon

Building Harlequin's Moon by Larry Niven My rating: 5 of 5 stars An insightful and fascinating look at terraforming and generation starships. It follows travelers as they skip and hop across the galaxy, across the light years, and through tens of thousands of years....

Abhuman: Redemption First Draft Complete

Whew! I'm very glad to have finished this. I had a few plot mechanics that were giving me headaches, so the first draft is a few weeks late. Now the real fun begins! The framework is in place. Time for the artist to color in his sketch....

And the winner is … The United Kingdom!

The UK sweeps my Goodreads Giveaway! (whoops) Following last week's Oscar mixup, Goodreads sent me the list of winners for my giveaway for 10 copies of Abhuman: Resistance. As I glanced down the list I was somewhat surprised to see so many UK winners. Then I realized...

Red Shirts One – A Star Wars Story

just got home from seeing Rogue One. Not a bad movie, nor was it the epic new format that would crush all previous versions (imho). I liked it. I prefer dark, more gritty movies and tv--generally speaking. The Battlestar Galactica (BSG) re-boot is...

Night Terrors

Here's a short scene I may add to Abhuman: Revelation. I wanted to explore what it might feel like to be stalked at night, in the comfort of your own bed--normally a sanctuary. They always came at night. When you were still and warm and peaceful. Your heart making a...

All About The Covenant

What The Covenant is all about Star Wars and X-men meet The 100 That's exactly the kind of story I set out to tell. It had to be like Star Wars, sweeping, nothing less than pan-galactic. Rich in history and lore, and deeply layered. I wanted the incredible, and...

Worldbuilding

World-Building in general Most of us have seen meme's where the depth of a movie's content is compared to that of a book. Usually the movie is depicted as the bit of the iceberg above water, and the book, the portion beneath the waves. But there is a third layer -...

So, I have a new project. My readers will know how much I love Space Opera (SO), and of course my main series, The Tribes of Yggdrasil, is firmly in that sub-genre. I decided to pull together a website that collects everything related to SO in one place: Lists of...
