Busy week

I haven't posted much this week because I have been busy writing the intros to each story in my collection "Fantastic Texas", as well as doing the editorial revisions.

I spoke to over 50 students who attended the screening of "Fahrenheit 451" at Northeast Texas Community College last night (Thursday). Although there was some chatter at the start of the movie, the teens got quiet and actually payed close attention to the movie. The only time they hooted was during the scene when Montag was on the run and a quartet of policemen go looking for him using jet packs. The special effects look so bad now...

The two professors who hosted the s-f film series said the finale far and away was the best attended screening.

Slush Pile Mambo

Right now I have a dozen short stories sitting in various slushpiles awaiting decisions, and eight stories accepted and pending publication...
