More fiction please...
« on: March 06, 2010, 03:46:29 AM »
I would like to see more fiction in SFcrowsnest.com if possible.

Stuff you could also download onto an e-book reader would be very welcome.

I'm not sure I like reading fiction on a screen - either a PC or an e-book.

Give me old fashioned paper any day.

Personally, I'd like to see more old style gamer's content - table top wargames, figures, painting, model kits and that kind of stuff.

I'd go for figure painting and model kit articles too.

Nobody actually reads fiction online do they?

I know I don't.

I'm strictly paper when it comes to reading.

Screens give me headaches, even short news stories online.

Ladies and Gents and other biped denizens of Sol-3

When it comes to new material, I'd like to see new contributions as well.

If you think you have something to offer, contact me at the editorial address.

As to preferring paper to e-books. I tend to agree oddly enough, especially when it comes to reviews. However there is a need for a reminder that SF has fiction in its title.

I would have thought that where RPG is concerned, there was enough websites on the Net already.

Ditto more about model-making although I did have fun with the TARDIS last year. If anyone can get me about a pound weight of uranium, doesn't have to be weapons grade, I think I can make it travel in time and space.

When I can fit it in, I'm working on making a Starfury that lights up but the kit is now defunct so even if you wanted to do the same modifications you'd be hard pushed to get one.

I would like to see more interviews with TV and movie stars from fantasy and scifi, like the magazines in print carry.

Would that be possible?

Hello KR - I take it you name choice is based off a certain talking car show. I've got two models of KITT in my collection.

Who do you have in mind and what questions would you like asked??

Its a lot easier to go after authors than actors but the main reason I go after someone is because I'm likely to ask questions that might not be a repetition of things I've seen elsewhere.

Hello everyone

For the record, I'm working on lighting a model of the 1953 film 'War Of The Worlds' war machine at the moment and will be giving instructions how to do it shortly.

Anyone have access to a minature disintergrator instead of a flashing red LED in the eye stalk, let me know. Authenticy rules. :-)

Anyway, if you're interested grab the kit early while its still around the £22 mark. Getting the LEDs and such is a lot easier.

Hello everyone

I'm open to read any short form Science Fiction to be used on the website. Check out the instructions elsewhere on site.

I don't bite that much and can sort out problems.

So what defines Science Fiction in your eyes??

For me, the plot has to have a solution that wouldn't nessarily work in any other genre.

I have to say 'necessarily' cos there is some decent old SF out there that does violate that rule but you see what I mean.

Don't forget, I'm more likely to help a newbie get an SF story out there.

If you want a new year's resolution, try writing a story a month. Doesn't have to be long but it's a good mental exercise and then practicing your storycraft skill.

Hello

I also explain how to sort out mistakes. Helps by being one of the good guys at doing that.
