Fresno Sci-Fi and Fantasy Writers Blogs
I am surrounded by some terrifically talented folks at FSFW! And most of them have blogs, websites and published works! Check them out:
Roh Morgon at http://www.rohmorgon.com just published her first novel, Watcher: Book I of The Chosen. Hopefully, much more to come on this momentous event later, as she kicks her press junket into high gear, but why not pick up the book now and say you beat the masses to this gem?
Tirzah Duncan at http://www.tirzahduncan.com/, our newest member, is a NaNoWriMo Winner for her novel Ever Actor, which we got to sample and review last night and it’s fantastic! Lots more to come from her! Oh, AND she keeps up a blog on writing tips!
Kyle Aisteach at http://www.aisteach.com/ is a force at our meetings and his short story, “Pressure and the Argument Tree,” has just recently been released in Digital Science Fiction Volume 3. I had the pleasure of hearing Kyle read an excerpt at one of our open mic nights and it’s classic sci-fi with a wry sense of humor. He’s also just epublished The Survivor’s Menagerie, a stand-alone novellete available on Amazon, Amazon UK, Amazon Deutschland, and Goodreads. Kyle’s site is also a great resource for writers, so check it out!
Across the Pacific, we have Amanda Hsiao at http://miaoxixian.wordpress.com/ whose ImagiNation blog is filled with her poetry and short stories. So go read them! Also, I have it on good authority she’s working on a kick-ass book, that’s supposed to be a series, so I hope she continues writing it, ’cause I sure want to continue reading it.
There is also P.D. Wright at http://www.pdwright.com/blog/ and C. Michael Fontes at http://www.cmichaelfontes.com/ who are both hard at work on novels, so their updates might be a little more sporadic at present, but they have plenty of stuff in their archives to keep you entertained for weeks or months depending on your reading speed and intensity of perusal. (That was a weird sentence, and I apologize for that.)
And then there’s the guy who started it all, or at least brought us together. While there is no toff blog at present–or that’s readily googlable (is that a word yet?)–Christopher Wood is the mastermind behind FSFW and you can find him posting notes from our last meeting or chiming in on writing tips at his baby, fsfw.net. He’s also the guy that gifted me the quote you see at the top of the site! We can’t thank him enough for organizing this unique group. He’s got a few published offerings, “Q Flux” in FSFW’s 2010 Anthology I Dreamed A Crooked Dream and “No Two Stones” in Heroic Fantasy Quarterly Issue 5, and now that FSFW is officially a publisher, he’s got his newest novellet, Gallop, in the FSFW store, so definitely check that out!
There are plenty of other talented folks in the group, and I will hopefully highlight them in future posts and get some exclusive interviews for your reading pleasure, and maybe even some sneak peeks on their works in progress!
Until next time!
