Star Trek Magazine

The July/August issue of Star Trek Magizine is out.

If you see it, check pages 60-61. There's a blurb about Strange New Worlds 10.

And you might recognize one of the names. :-)

Civilization 4

Civilization 4 is an engrossing, fascinating, addictive game in which you try to build the best civilization of them all.

In other words, it is evil.

I am embarassed to tell you how many hours I've spent playing this game. Many of them have been with my oldest, who has quickly mastered the subtleties of the game and is excellent at it.

If you buy it (and if you like games like this, you should) make sure you have a caring spouse or parent to yank you off the computer from time to time. Or commit yourself to not playing until the house is clean, your homework is done, or your pages are written. :-)

Otherwise, we may never hear from you again...

2 reasons for writers to be cranky this year...

First, Miss Snark retires from blogging (though the posts are still up for all to see).

Now Dean Wesley Smith is shutting down the forum part of his website.

Two great writing resources, lost. Check Dean's forum this week (link on the right there) - lots of good stuff there if you are thinking about writing as a career.
