Good morning, afternoon, and evening, y'all! It's #PollMondays, which means we've got a Twitter poll for you!
What is your favorite recent non-Star Wars space opera movie?
1. Guardians of the Galaxy
2. Jupiter Ascending
3. The Fifth Element
Decided to pick a story from Glittership to read today and I liked it so it's also the story I'm sharing tonight.
"The Last Spell of the Raven" by Morris Tanafon from Glittership episode #47.
Yep, episode. With Glittership you can either read or listen to this story of with a definite Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell feel but in a world where magic is both far more common, and far more dangerous to use.
@shaunduke Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson and The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood.
Excerpt from my #WiP:
There are plenty of ghosts in this town. Some go, others stay. Some, like the woman here, repeat and repeat their activities, like a looping film clip. Comfort knows the wife has come from her old home, and knows that she’s going to the rocky shore near the lighthouse, where she will fill her spectral pockets with shadowy duplicates of the stones at her feet, and then walk north until the top of her head disappears below the gray waters of Lake Ontario.
I think at this point it should be pretty obvious that on both my Mastodon accounts (this and @shaunduke) I'm basically Super Supportive Man. :)
Just realised that I didn't even introduce myself properly:
I'm a lifelong fan of science fiction, fantasy and related subjects.
I live near Bremen in North Germany, the city made famous by the fairy tale about the town musicians.
I'm a writer, not just as SFF.
In my day job, I'm a translator of technical and legal texts. I'm also a teacher, originally for English, but now mostly for German as a second language.
Alright. If you've got a question about podcasting, whether my podcasts or your own or in general or whatever, throw them my way and I'll do my best to answer! #podcast
