Shout Out Friday

It's been a while since I've posted any shout-outs and I think today is a good day for it.

First off, the always interesting Veronica Sicoe posted a great piece asking how much science (and scientific plausibility) is necessary in science fiction?

Along the same thread, check out the 2012 Hugo winning Fan-zine SF Signal for tons of cool science fiction content.

For those folks interested in actual science, here's a very cool story about tainting rhino horns in order to deter poachers. Very cool!

For those of you wanting to get a manuscript out to agents in a new and exciting way, be sure to check out Miss Snark's First Victim's "Bakers Dozen Challenge" where 60 stories will be selected to have their first 250 words posted for agents to "bid on".Nice!

Want a laugh? Check out OFW's "Ten Gifts You Should Never Give a Writer". Brief but hilarious!

Finally, I've had to update my "My Fiction" page because I've had another micro-fiction (I think that's the most appropriate term for it) piece published on Please check out my story "God's Plan".

Have a great weekend!


  1. Thanks for the links, I'm hoping over to Miss Snarks now.

  2. That idea of dying the horns of rhinos is so cool! They should come up with a way to alter the color of elephant tusks so they don't look as appealing to poachers either.

    Thanks for the mention, Adam! And for the great links. :)

  3. Loved the gifts post. So true. Congrats on your "God's Plan" piece!

  4. Fun links here, Adam! What a great idea for a post. I love it. And I hope your projects are going well??? And the Snark contest sounds fun. :D
