It’s that time of the year again! Halloween is around the corner, and if you haven’t gotten my Halloween Soundscape album, it’s available from iTunes, Amazon, and other online stores. Eerie ambient music inspired by classic stories. You can read the liner notes over on my Gymshoes Music site. Besides unsettling trick-or-treaters, it’s nice dark music to accompany your scary Halloween reading this month. Enjoy!
Yesterday I took the day off. I figured that a solar eclipse was a legit reason for a science fiction writer to skip out on writing. Other good reasons to take a day off writing SF: alien invasion, giant meteor heading for earth, rise of the machines, rampaging triffids, or somewhat less unlikely possibilities like humans going to Mars, or NASA returning to the moon. (If we went back to the moon, I wouldn’t just take the day off, I’d throw a party!) Today I’m back at work on the book!
This turned up in my feed over the weekend: Dig Into Nearly 30 Years of Free Classic Science Fiction, with a link at the bottom to Three decades of Galaxy Science Fiction magazine on Internet Archive. Wow! You can download pdf/epub or use their online book reader. I love classic SF and I’m just delighted to have these magazines to browse and download!
Something fun and wonderful for your Monday morning: Text San Francisco Museum of Modern Art to get art sent to your phone. This is nifty, though the responses are a bit quirky for the input. Still, wonderful art comes right into your hand instaneously and it’s a lovely surprise to see what you get.
Because I know a number of writers follow me here on this microblog, here’s the latest on my author blog:
