My new alarm clock has a serious drawback.
A motion sensor.
I wake to my alarm this morning and see it’s 7:00am…not the 4:00am my clock is set for… So I begin to panic as the music plays…
Which turns off the alarm.
So my cat’s plan to take over the world apparently includes motion sensors. They can’t hit a stupid button or use the litter box consistantly but damn, they’ve got motion sensors down.
After rushing around the house like a maniac
I praised the happy puppy and took her out. Then gave her food and put her in her kennel for the day
But I’m still late.
So far they’ve been good here..but I’m sure I’ve put quite a few nails in the raise coffin.
I managed to send out Sacred Space again. I’m shooting for the stars this time with Analog. Do I believe they’ll publish it? They say they accept social scifi, but I’ve rarely seen it in their magazine.
Sacred Space is my only SciFi story…the closest I usually get is Space Opera. So far everyone that I’ve had read the story has been greatly disturbed. They should be…it’s premise is disturbing
Is this where Scifi is headed?
I admit I’m behind the times…my current reading selections have been either non-fiction, Piers Anthony or Andre Norton. With the occasional high fantasy du-jour or children’s lit for my daugther’s bed time reading. I’m not up on who’s who in hard scifi or even social scifi…which has been limited to Analog and Asimov’s…but not since last September.
Do we, as writers, have to answer every fucking question or can we leave anything up for debate and wonder?
I need some modern hard Scifi recommendations…by which I mean published in the last three years. Anyone?
