novella ebook cover

I was working on a cover for a novella I was working on. Close to completion just need some final touches on the illustration. I took various airplane designs and fused them together into a space ship.

I just thought I'd share [​IMG]

Films: Pitch Black (2000), and The Chronicles of Riddick (2004)

I hadn't seen Pitch Black before, but it kept appearing on the TV schedules with reasonable ratings so I decided I'd give it a look. Warning – this review contains spoilers.

The basic plot is hardly new: a spaceship crashes on an uninhabited desert planet, with a small number of survivors. Just to liven things up, they include a convicted killer who had escaped from jail, and the bounty hunter…

Years Best Sci-fi edited by Gardner Dozois

Recently picked up a copy of The Years Best Sci-fi #29 and # 30 edited by Gardner Dozois.
These I have to say a an excellent series of books! A great cross section of sci-fi with enough meat and potatoes ideas in the stories to make them well worth reading. A great find.

Some great stories in these collections like:
“Dolly” by Elizabeth Bear
“Martian Heart” by John Barnes
“The Ice Owl” by Carolyn Ives Gilman

Pick up a copy if you can!

Missing Part

I'm trying to track down a short SF story I saw long ago. I think it was in Asimov's or Analog. It was an oddly awkward-sounding story. What did its author call it? “Missing Part”? Or “A Part is Missing”? It was so many moons ago, I don't know now. Mayhaps “A part is missing” is just how its first paragraph starts. Do any of you know of it? I found it a bit chilling, on account of its narrator was painfully trying oh so hard to warn us about an unknown, out-world horror. A horror with a subtly…
