besides many more fun and imaginative stories by a variety of talented authors, both established and new talent.
The next Superversive Livestream is happening at 3pm EST tomorrow, on the subject of the Hugo Award versus the Dragon Awards, and will feature Dave “Snowflake Slayer” Truesdale and not one but three Dragon Award Winners: Nick Cole, returning as a guest and our two regulars John C. Wright and Brian Niemeier. It’s sure to be an entertaining discussion, so Head over to SuperversiveSF and give us a listen!
There is going to be another SuperversiveSF livestream tomorrow (Saturday 18th March) at 3pm Eastern Time (7pm GMT, now that daylight saving is no longer active in the US), with special Guest Nick Cole, discussing his book Ctrl-Alt-Revolt and the phenomenon of blacklisting in Science Fiction. It is sure to be an entertaining discussion.
In related news, SuperversiveSF has made the Sad Puppies shortlist for the best fanzine of 2015, and Sci Phi Journal for the best Semiprozine of 2015 and best short form editor. I am proud to have played my part in both of these fine new organizations, and other members of these two groups are up for further awards, Daddy Warpig and Brian Niemeier are on the list for Geek Gab (Best fancast), Brian Niemeier for his novel Nethereal and Campbell award for best new writer, and John C. Wright for his spectacular novel Somewhither (all of the above should be taking part in the livestream tomorrow).
A unique online event is going to be held this Friday, an old-school dnd dungeon crawl with genuine ebooks and paperbacks as the random treasures. Among the treasures will be two ebook copies of Beyond the Mist, two of Nobility Among Us, and two of Selected Verse – Heroes and Wonders (If it’s not on sale by the time the game starts, these will be eARC’s of that collection). The event is sponsored by Nick Cole’s excellent Cyberpunk Novel Ctrl-Alt-Revolt!, so there will be in-game bonuses for people who have bought and/or reviewed that book. Don’t ask me how the game will work, I’m not running it, just contributing to the pot of prizes together with a lot of fine writers, and that pot is still growing. Take a look for yourself over here:
