Kira Kroger (mistyayn)17,256Space Needle Converges at the Seattle Center Event Details: https://sites.google.com/site/seattlecenterconvergence/ If you have any questions please ask in this event. Please feel free to make your way to pop kitchen + bar (inside EMP) after events are over at the Seattle Center (approx 7PM).  Joe Philley will be there and would love to meet as many people as possible. The History: Over fifty years ago, an XM anomaly so strong so as to be detectable with 60s science was discovered. Under the cover of the 1962 World's Fair it was suppressed and contained by a novel structure known as the Space Needle. The project disappeared into classified files. But the energy within the anomaly was too strong for primitive human technology to hold for long. The defenses are wavering. Fifty years worth of alien energies are about to be unleashed, and no field can hope to contain them. We know when it will happen. Only the faction that controls the site of the World's Fair can hope to tap into some fraction of that stored power - and bend the power surge to their own ends.  Containment will fail on May 4th. Scientists of both factions are studying the implications, and are on track to uncover a way to exploit the anomaly by April 15th. Mission orders for May 4th will be released at that time. *tl;dr* This is a player planned event at the Seattle Center on May 4th.  The official rules will be added to this event on April 15th.  There will be a get together following the event, details will also be added on April 15th.  (please check back for more information).Space Needle Convergence (Player Initiated Event)2013-05-04 14:30:00125

It's 2016. You should be reading.

+Lisa Cohen is a seriously good writer, and Future Tense promises to be some of her best work yet. Did I mention it's free for the next two days? Download this like it's hot - because it is!

#free   #indie   #ebook   #read2016  

Last 2 days to get FUTURE TENSE for free on the 'zon. The promotion will end Jan 5th, midnight eastern.

Matt will do whatever it takes to avoid the violence of his visions.

I wrote this book because the only stories I was seeing with a foster kid protagonist and an urban neighborhood with a diverse population were 'message' fiction - something you might see on an ABC afterschool special.

Which is totally not the kind of story I enjoy reading or writing.

I wanted to explore that setting within the context of speculative fiction and my hero is a kid living a disadvantaged life in inner city foster care.

I also wanted to challenge assumptions of foster parents as cardboard villains or abusers.

As I do with all my stories, I got to do a lot of research for this one. I had several intense conversations with a social worker in the foster care system here in MA. She was extremely helpful. I also got to learn - at least at a rudimentary level - how to read tarot cards.

And that's not something you put together every day: foster care and tarot cards.

So, take a chance while it's free. I can promise you a few hours entertainment.

Another new author to introduce tonight - I'm really digging this cover!

#indiepower #bookworm #readerswanted

"Raymond Chandler meets Robert Heinlein in this fun and inventive crossover SF novel from Richard Levesque."J. Orr, Amazon Reviews

Eddie Royce is an up-and-coming science fiction writer with a terrible secret: he cheats.

He knew he'd get caught, of course. Eventually. But not like this. When disaster finally strikes, it strikes big, and Eddie is confronted by the worst person imaginable: his idol, the SF master, Chester Blackwood.

To Eddie's great surprise, however, Blackwood has secrets of his own, and instead of outing him, the master story-teller quickly embroils Eddie in a real-life mystery of time travel, beautiful women, and Hollywood gangsters. But then Blackwood disappears, so if Eddie wants to keep both the fame and the girl, he's going to have to do the one thing he's never been able to get right before: plot his way out of a crisis.

And the stakes if he fails? The very future of science fiction itself.

"The pace of the story is quick, and the time transitions are handled well. Overall, this is a good novel, one that even readers with little interest in sci-fi might enjoy." Publishers Weekly.

"Hardboiled 30′s crime thriller meets time-traveling pulp science-fiction for an original fast paced, page turner." S. Sager, Amazon Reviews

"It has a distinctly 'noir' flavor as well as an old school science fiction feel. It is fast paced and clever." C. Pellitteri, Amazon Reviews

"Apart from stopping to have something to eat I haven't been able to tear myself away from this until I had finished it. This is good old time story telling that is well written, and definitely well worth reading." M. Bowden, Amazon UK Hall of Fame Reviewer

I'll be sharing several interesting reads - for those following, take a look at author Anne Sweazy Kulju's work for something fresh and unexpected!

#indiepower   #bookworm   #readshare  

Now appearing in the PNWA Holiday Catalogue - "BODIE" Winner 2014 WILLA Literary Awards, Silver Medal

"I often will have a hard time reading a book that covers two entirely different times but Sweazy-Kulju is a master storyteller with the ability to just transport you from time and place without you feeling the transition. I loved this book like I haven't loved a book in a long time. I immediately became immersed in the story and loved so much the premise of sisters having the same exact recurring dream.

"This thriller doesn't ask anything of you, not to believe anything unbelievable, not to accept anything that you wouldn't normally. It's just a great story about sisterly family bonds, and the strong ties that every single of of us as humans has to the past. You won't be sorry you read this one. Looking forward to more from this author."
5.0 out of 5 stars. [ByJay Mittener TOP 1000 REVIEWER]

THE EAGLE AND THE WOLF
It is May, 1940. France has fallen to Hitler. All of Europe holds its breath.

When the Germans occupied Paris, she never dreamed she might come to love one of them. But she never expected to survive a werewolf attack by one of them, either...

THE EAGLE 
Klaus von Erstenheim is an aristocratic colonel in the Luftwaffe. Now war has brought him back to Paris, a city he visited - and loved - years before. Yet now everything is changed...including him. Can he survive his conflicted loyalties in a city where the Gestapo watches other Germans as closely as they do the French?

AND THE WOLF 
Cecile Geroux is a principal dancer in the Paris Opera. She loves Paris and would do anything to see the German occupiers gone - including the seduction of a German officer to gain intel for the Resistance. But can she spy on someone she grows to love, while still preserving her dark secret?

WAR. PASSION. ART.
Brought together by war and art and destiny, Klaus and Cecile must find ways to accommodate one another in the midst of an occupied Paris - without allowing their respective secrets to destroy one another...

THE EAGLE AND THE WOLF is a Historical Fiction novel with Urban Fantasy elements perfect for introducing newcomers to this fascinating time and place in history, while still adding a zest of interest for those who already know and love Paris of the 1940s.

THE EAGLE AND THE WOLF - a novel by +Peter Smalley and +Bonnie Mosley 

Think you know all about werewolves? Think again.

Most of what popular media thinks of werewolves was the creation of Hollywood. Lon Chaney Jr. starred in "The Wolfman" in 1941, and ever since we've thought of werewolves as uncontrollable monsters who changed form at the sight of the moon, usually turning into some kind of man-beast hybrid.

But in the older sources - Renaissance, medieval, and older - it was not that way. Not only were werewolves wolves rather than human-beast hybrids, but you could become a werewolf in many ways. Werewolf mythologies are found in almost every European ethnic group, and have a wide variety of powers and weaknesses.

Werewolf mythologies are found in almost every European ethnic group, and have a wide variety of powers and weaknesses.

For instance: Bisclavret ("The Werewolf") is one of the twelve Lays of Marie de France, written in the 12th century. Originally written in French, it tells the story of a werewolf who is trapped in lupine form by the treachery of his wife. The tale was popular and was reworked as The Lay of Melion, and is probably referenced in Sir Thomas Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur with the story of Sir Marrok.

In The Eagle and the Wolf we explore some of these older traditions of werewolf lore. Which ones? You'll have to read it to find out...book release is December 1!

L'AIGLE ET LE LOUP - un roman de +Peter Smalley et +Bonnie Mosley

Mai, 1940. La France est tombée à Hitler.

Quand les Allemands se sont occupés Paris, elle ne pensait jamais qu'elle pourrait aimer. Mais elle ne s'attendait jamais à voir le loup - un loup-garou.

L'AIGLE

If you are interested in science, this community is one of the best around on social media anywhere. Check it out!

#science   #reason   #excelsior  

One of the Best Science Communities on G+

Actually, it's almost certainly the best, and a lot of that has to do with the fact that it is extremely well moderated by the owner +Lacerant Plainer  and his team.  Virtually no spam, discussions are reasonable and knowledgeable, trolls really aren't tolerated, and tons of great Categories for reference.  

Highly recommended!___If you are interested in science, this community is one of the best around on social media anywhere. Check it out!

Physicians have cured 12 adult patients of sickle cell disease using a unique procedure for stem cell transplantation from healthy, tissue-matched siblings. The new technique eliminates the need for chemotherapy to prepare the patient to receive the transplanted cells and offers the prospect of cure for tens of thousands of adults suffering from sickle cell disease.

This is my new favorite thing: a masterfully-edited supercut of every nightclub/dance scene in every major scifi film, seamlessly integrated into one phenomenal, star-studded alloy of pure Awesomium. 

Why are you still reading? Go watch it! I guarantee you will laugh out loud every time a new character makes an entrance...or exit.

Meanwhile in Seattle, even the most ardent pot activists are starting to re-think their position on marijuana legalization...

(No, not really. This is all smoke from the Eastern Washington wildfires, even though they are hundreds of miles away on the other side of a mountain range. It's truly a stunning difference between today and June, when the picture on top was taken - and it's only going to get worse.)

With the release of "private" information from the Ashley Madison leak, online privacy has suddenly taken on a higher profile. Once the more salacious aspects of this specific hack fade, the question that remains will be: What are we willing to have publicly known about our deepest feelings and most secret thoughts? How might others look at us if those thoughts and desires were known - to everyone?

This short story, written in 2012, explores what such a world might look like: a world without privacy.

Did you know I write books? You didn't?! Well why not?

Oh, that's right - there's a lot of new folks here recently. :-)

YES. I am an indie author, and I write books. Books about people who never lived (but who you probably know), places that never existed (but really ought to), and events that never happened (except in that most important of places: our imaginations). I write urban fantasy, historical fiction, allegory, and pure fantasy. I've written about hardboiled detectives who use magic, mad scientists of the Civil War, DISenchanters, and genocides of near-human races in Dark Ages Europe. But what ties it all together?

In a word: Possibility. I look at a person, place, or event, and ask myself "what if...?"

EVEN MORE FALLACY REF!

Glen Welch reached out to me this evening with a few more Fallacy Ref memes. It seems people mentioning they saw these memes on my G+ page have been making requests to him to memeify their favorite fallacies, much like they would request a song if he was a cover band. Glen has asked me to add these new memes to my repost of his collection "to appease the masses."

Masses, consider yourselves appeased!

FALLACY REF is the best collection of memed logical fallacies in the history of memed logical fallacy collections.

I did some quick Google sleuthing and could not find the original source, but [EDIT] I have been told it is the creation of Glen Welch, to whom my sincerest thanks. (His originals can be found on Facebook, but please, be kind and don't break the internet if you visit his page!)

Now go. Share. Fill the internet with logic awareness. Future generations will thank you.

H/t to +Jane Skau​ for bringing this wonderfulness to my attention!
