Fantasy or Science Fiction?

Looking for some fantasy or science fiction?  Here is a flow chart from SF Signal with the top 100 NPR Fantasy and Science Fiction Books.   If you’re new to genre, then now is the time to get familiar with it.  Last month, NPR polled readers to determine the top 100 sci-fi and fantasy books of all time. The creative minds at SF Signal have transformed the NPR list into a nifty flowchart that will help you choose the right novel for you. You can see a much larger version of the graphic if you click the photo. Where do you end up?  I got Michael Moorcock's, The Elric Saga. Have fun!

NaNoWriMo 2011 Wallpapers

Here is another great NaNoWriMo 2011 wallpaper for your computer.  I will continue to add more as I find them, so check back often.  This design is also by Julia Woodrow.  The original can be found here. Enjoy!

Crossroads by Laura Anne Gilman

I love when I find a great story by accident.  While mindlessly tramping around some sites today I found a short story by Laura Anne Gilman.  Gilman is an established author, with titles such as Flesh and Fire: Book One of The Vineart War and Weight of Stone: Book Two of the Vineart War. The story I found, Crossroads, seamlessly intertwines the western and fantasy genres, reminiscent or Stephen King's Dark Tower series.  I actually downloaded the podcast version so I could listen to it on my trip to Florida this December. It's a quick read at 2448 words, it's free, and it's a great story. What more do you want!  Now you have something constructive to do for your next writing break.

For those of you not familiar with Gilman here is a nice interview with her that I just found.

With NaNoWriMo 2011 fast approaching, I began looking for appropriate wallpapers for my computer.  So far my short search only produced one, but I am sure more will appear as we get closer.  I will try to link them here as I find them.  Enjoy!

Credit for this one goes to Julia Woodrow.  You can pick it up here.


Some of the word totals are transposed in this one, working on getting Julia to fix them.
