I’ve been pretty quiet lately on the social media front due to getting pitches, short stories and other stuff out of the way before an impending holiday. However, if my absence is causing bloggage blockage, you can get your fill of sage words in Speculative Fiction 2012: The Best Online Reviews, Essays and Commentary.
As well as a modest entry from this humble hamster-wrangler this volume contains a broad range of top-class reviews, examinations of the writing craft, looks at genre industry and lots of other informative and entertaining writing. I’ve only had time to look at a few so far, but I hope to read more during the aforementioned holiday.
Not only is it a fascinating snapshot of the 2012 blogosphere, edited by the peeps at Pornokitsch this year, all proceeds are going to a Good Cause – Room to Read. As Jared himself said, “The end result is 100,000 words of the most fun, insightful and interesting writing in genre.”
I’d like to say again how happy and honoured I am to be included in the collection. If there are any topics you’d like me to get my teeth into as a contender for the 2013 volume, let me know in the comments. If you’re interested in these kinds of discussions, why not take part in person and come along to Edge-Lit 2 in Derby this summer?
Speculative Fiction 2012 is available now from Amazon, and a Kindle version will be available soon.
