So there's this local literary magazine called Newtown Literary. It's still relatively new, but it's already built a bit of a rep for attracting Queens writers for short stories and poetry. The theme for their next issue is sci-fi/fantasy.Guess who's gonna be in it.Yep! I had had my eye on getting in the mag before, possibly by submitting a piece from WSW, but they only take original, unpublished work (a post on a blog counts as being published), so what I did was, I crafted a short story loosely inspire... read more »

Is this the precursor of much of today’s science fiction? The themes, ideas, stories he covers in this long work are multitude. I’ve read developments of these ideas in so many other works. First published in 1937, it is definitely a work of its time. The style, a narrative without dialogue, is dated and I suspect many new readers would find it difficult. But it is well worth the effort of reading the whole work.
The voyage, unexplained in terms of the ‘how?’, is more concerned with the ‘why?’ and deal... read more »

I used to cringe when some someone spouted the words “Same Difference”. Then my world opened up and I began to become exposed to different cultures and religions. And what I found was we shared much of the same ideals and yes same differences.
Are We Really That different?
No we are not. We all are individuals with hopes and dreams. We want the best for ourselves and our families. Think about it, what more is there really?
Yes There Are Differences
What we have to think about are they really majo... read more »
seen on TV @ TCM
9.10.14I think it was sometime in the mid-to-late 90s. At least, I'm fairly sure it was around then. I don't remember if I was channel surfing and discovered it by accident or if I knew about it in advance. I distinctly remember seeing it though: PBS aired a bunch of Greta Garbo silents. They may have been clips or they may have been full-length films; I don't recall.The point is that I remember watching them on TV and being mesmerized by them. Part of it has to do with the w... read more »
