Guest Post: Daniel Bensen

Today I have for you a guest post from a fellow science afflicted author who I’ve had some very cool biology conversations with on a writing forum we both frequent. If you ever wanted to know the how something as amazing and sophisticated as flight evolved, read on!   How Dinosaurs can fix the Evolution of Flight by Daniel Bensen When I pitched my “How Dinosaurs can fix your…” series of essays to the good people of the Codex writers’ forum, I expected (and mostly got) requests for writerly advice such as “How Dinosaurs can fix your Routine” or...

Author Interview: Lawrence M. Schoen

It’s been a while since I’ve had an author stop by for an interview, so I thought I’d start 2016 off right. Please welcome to my little corner of the internet, Lawrence M. Schoen.

2015 In Review

First, Happy New Year! I’m not much of a resolution maker, mostly because that sort of motivation really doesn’t work for me. Instead, I thought I’d make a ‘this is what I did last year’ post to keep myself accountable for 2016. Submission statistics are thanks to The Submission Grinder which is a fabulous tool for obsessively keeping track of your stories and submissions, if you’re into that, which clearly I am. 2015 Submissions: 89 Acceptances: 2 Form Rejections: 55 Personal Rejections: 17 Compared to 2014 Submissions: 40 Acceptances: 3 Form Rejections:...

Science Affliction #17

Welcome back to Science Affliction! Why? Mostly because I realized I’d collected enough interesting science stuff and nonsense to fill a post. And I haven’t posted in a while on science topics so it felt like it was time. Un) More than you ever thought there was to know about Pluto. Ice volcanoes! Fast spinning moons! Pluto is even weirder than we thought. It’s going to take about a year for us to get all the data from the Pluto fly-by, and I’m looking forward to what else we can learn from our favorite not-planet-planet. Related, we found a new dwarf planet last week...

Hey, You Got Some Science In My Fiction

So why not? Anyway, the dinner was pretty great, and if you are in the Seattle area I can’t recommend The Pantry enough. We had a wonderful dinner chock full of apples with some fun people. But, that’s not why I brought you here, that was just to set the stage for the real purpose of this post. THE MARTIAN IS AWESOME YOU GUYS. Seriously, I’m not even messing around here. If you haven’t seen it yet, go out and get some...
