Re: Update?

Sorry to hear that, man! No worries on the story; we'll be here if and when you get it done. You just get better!

Re: Links to Good Reading (Part 2)

Good grief, dude! I've looked for that thing for decades, and you find it in one day? Either you are amazing, or I really suck using cloud search. Eh, what am I saying? I -KNOW- I suck at cloud; I am very much a Boolean baby. Still, thanks bud!

Re: Links to Good Reading (Part 2)

Heya gang! Got another one, this one is a serious longshot. First off, it's a fairy tale, but don't think it's from the Grimms or other common sources. It was in an oddball collection some decades back, though some of them were definitely not Disneyfied. Pretty sure the particular story I want is fr...

Re: Links to Good Reading (Part 2)

Sorry if this is the wrong thread, but anyone familiar with a story posted over on Storiesonline a few years back set in the mining town of Carp? Think it was set in early to middle parts of last century, and the town had some old fashioned customs even for the times; also, hero was some kind of eng...

Re: The courier(spoilers)

Eh, not an unimportant consideration, but scientists generally assume everything has a source; we just went through some minor hoopla about scientists finally proving the Higgs "god particle" existed, which is essentially thought to be the source of MASS! In the case some inquisitive human finds out...

Re: The courier(spoilers)

Might be another option to confronting the energy companies directly, one the earth dragons might especially like: farms. Many farmers already try to enhance their income by installing modern windmills or solar panels to collect energy they can sell back to the power companies. So, sell them kits fo...

Re: Links to Good Reading (Part 2)

Heya folks! Any of you read A New Past by Charlie Foxtrot on SOL? Pretty good stuff for one of the I'm-my-younger-self time-travel tales. Touch of the expected sexual escapades, but with a more romantic tilt. And the guy has a decent grasp on his engineering, so when he sets up the hero to make mone...

Re: Shifters, test chapter.

Pardon beforehand, but I'm trying to give a decent critique without giving away a lot. I hope I balance this well enough. Like the first parts before the flashback, as they do well to give a nice foreshadowing of his personality and social problems. However, you have a narrative flashback, what migh...

Re: How did you learn about Fel/Sennadar?

I was actually referred here, myself -- on a bet, of sorts. It was a few chapters before the last of the Pyrosia books were finished, a guy whose story I was editing at the time got into a discussion about it somehow. Think I was complaining about running out of stuff to read, as I'm a rather swift ...

Re: Thor's Child - complete to Chapter 22

That's kind of like in a story I did some editing for. The main character was a spy, and one chapter the writer sent me had the guy dropping into a "connivance" store before going on a mission. Such an appropriate and funny spelling error! I could see the dialogue: Yes, I'd like the deal on dirty de...

Re: Wile E. Coyote.

Well, depends on where you live for what sounds "wild". Technically, I'm a "city boy", though probably more due to the legal designation of our small, West-PA town than in reality. I live like 6 blocks (zigzagged) from town center, and we get a lot of wildlife at our dumpsters. I'm talking raccoons,...

Re: Jaris

Being high on mary jane or other drugs doesn't give you lucid dreams -- we're not talking hallucinations or just extra-trippy dreams. They're called "lucid" dreams because you are aware you're asleep, you know it's a dream, and you can decide how the dream goes. It's a rare state of consciousness. I...

Re: Shadow Walker, chapter 11.

Sorry it's late, but until someone finds a cure for real life that doesn't involve winning the lottery, dying, or doing something that'll put me in jail, deal with it. ;) So what, it'd still be "late" if you DID win the lottery? Oh, of course it would. Probably take a few days for the celebration's...

Re: Wormhole drives?

Yikes, would it! Try the equivalent of fallen power lines where the cable alone could smack into a planet like some large meteor. Toss in radiation of some exotic matter travelling near C, as well as a few (hopefully microscale) temporal anomalies. And make it all practically invisible. Yeah, let so...
