I posted my review for Elemental: The Tsunami Relief Anthology edited by Steven Savile and Alethea Kontis. Call it coincidence, but a Web site for the book was launched yesterday by co-editor Alethea Kontis. There are some very strong stories in the book and I would recommend it to most readers of Fantasy and Science Fiction. The proceeds from the book go to the Save the Children Tsunami Fund.
Point being, go out and buy a book with good stories for a good cause.
I am VERY happy with Godsmack’s new album, IV.
A Meme from Andrew Wheeler:
1. YOUR ROCK STAR NAME: (first pet and current street name)
2. YOUR MOVIE STAR NAME: (grandfather/grandmother on your dad's side, your favorite candy)
3. YOUR "FLY GIRL/GUY" NAME: (first initial of first name, first two or three letters of your last name)
4. YOUR DETECTIVE NAME: (favorite animal, favorite color)
5. YOUR SOAP OPERA NAME: (middle name, city where you were born)
(Sounds more like a romance-writer, no?)
6. YOUR STAR WARS NAME: (first 3 letters of your last name, last 3 letters of mother's maiden name, first 3 letters of your pet's name)
7. JEDI NAME: (middle name spelled backwards, your mom's maiden name spelled backwards) Dlorah Aicronid
(Like Andrew, I used her mom's maiden name, just to foil identity thieves with way too much time on their hands.)
8. PORN STAR NAME: (middle name, street you grew up on)
9. SUPERHERO NAME: ("The", your favorite color, the automobile you drive)
