Wing stubs giving me grief today. Started feeling them last night as I hunched over our desktop system. While I applaud the use of CSS in web development, I find it incredibly annoying when people lock a font size in which is teeny-tiny, so I have to squint and strain to read the text. Also topping my list of infuriating web developers: people who use dark red print on a black background. Not only is my eyesight screaming bloody murder, but my wretched posture, prolonged for several hours, has aggravated by TOS. Ouch. Might be time to break out the Clonazepam again.
Read and started writing the review of this week’s Sci-Fiction story, “Volunteers” by Alex Irvine, for Tangent. Ye olde editor has again faded into some mystic unknown dimension. My reviews of the last two weeks still haven’t been published.
Heard from the editor of the Dreams and Shadows 2 anthology which I sold “Cyberevenge Inc.” to that he found a publisher for it–Cyberpulp. I’ve got mixed feelings about that. On the one hand, it’s always good when a project gets green-lighted. On the other, I’ve been intentionally not submitting to the Cyberpulp anthologies because I’ve been uncertain about their business model. They don’t seem to provide hardcopy contributor’s copies to their writers, among other issues, plus their anthologies seem to be primarily aimed at the eBook market, and I still much prefer the look and feel of paper. I’m not going to pull the story, as I knew it wasn’t going to be a big money-maker anyway, but I would have preferred it if the anthology had found a more traditional publisher.
