If you missed it live, you can now catch the podcast version of our appearance from last Saturday on Shane Plays. Michael and I talk about his fantastic Wild Stars epic.
Also, I’ll be on the Superversive Sunday live stream with Ben Wheeler, so be sure to sub and tune in.
We really need our readers and supporters to back the Wild Stars IGG ASAP! We’ve only managed to raise $2k of our $8k goal, and… well, Cirsova Publishing REALLY needs to make this happen if we’re going to have any traction going into 2020!
Soon we’ll have the last cover from Mark Wheatley and the omnibus cover from Anton Oxenuk to show you!
Last week, I came across something interesting in my WordPress Reader feed – Someone was starting a brand new pro-level science fiction magazine, Compelling Science Fiction, and was looking for submissions for their first issue. As someone who was just tipping his toe into the SFF magazine market, I was more than a little intrigued, not to mention impressed, that someone was saying “I want to support a particular type of Science Fiction and I’m willing to put my money where my mouth is to do so.”
The introduction of any new paying market is bound to make a stir in the writing community, but a new pro-level market is a huge deal. I wanted to find out more!
So joining us today is Joe Stech, founder and editor-in-chief of Compelling Science Fiction, to talk to us about his project.
Torchship is an impressive book by an incredible author. I was absolutely thrilled to have Karl Gallagher give me some of his time over the last weeks to answer some of the burning questions I’ve had ever since finishing.
Thank you, Karl!
Alex: To an unscientific fellow like myself, I’d say “Karl Gallagher is a guy who makes spaceships for a living”. A gross oversimplification, I know, so why not tell us a little about your background in aeronautics engineering?
Karl: That ought to be “used to make spaceships for a living.” These days I’m working on fighter planes.
In case you missed it, I was recently interviewed by Stoic Writer.
Also, today a really great interview with Cirsova contributor Michael Tierney went up at Castalia House. Some great insight into the comic business, plus Michael has a 4 volume art history Edgar Rice Burroughs that will be going live for order this week.
I’m not ready to share it quite yet, but I’m working on fleshing out my WWII B/X system. If I’m lucky, I’ll get to test it out this friday. If not, maybe two weeks from friday.
I don’t really have a concrete scenario in mind, yet, so I hope my players will just be stoked by the prospect of firing off a few rounds from an M1 Garand at a Stegasaurus before they get trampled to death.
If you’ve just found out about Cirsova from our Hugo Nomination, hi! If you’d like to know more about us, who we are, and what we do, a great place to start would be these interviews we’ve done over the last few months.
