Gabi Stevens On The Rules And Regulations Of Magic

BY admin, JUNE 03, 2010 | PERMALINK
 

Author Gabi Stevens gives us a behind-the-scenes look at the rules and regulations of magic in The Wish List.

You might think that if you had magic, your power would be unlimited. You could do or achieve anything. But I tend to disagree. I think magic would have to come with rules and regulations. And limits. Things you can and cannot do, or wouldn’t want to.

Nnedi Okorafor And The Story That Demanded To Be Told

BY admin, JUNE 02, 2010 | PERMALINK

Author Nnedi Okorafor discusses the way this novel grabbed her imagination and refused to let go...

 

So, I’ve written this novel titled Who Fears Death. A woman named Onyesonwu (which means "Who Fears Death" in the Nigerian language of Igbo) materialized in my head and she started telling me a most incredible story. Any writer who hears a good story will write it down. I’m no different.

When I consider Who Fears Death, I realize this woman’s voice rose from an unheard collective voice shouting at me from the “Dark Continent”. That is why I feel this post-apocalyptic science fiction/fantasy/magical realist novel is as much a piece of African Literature as Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart.

Annie Nicholas Forces Her Characters To Question Human (And Not-So-Human) Nature

BY admin, JUNE 02, 2010 | PERMALINK

Author Annie Nicholas doesn't hold her punches when it comes to putting her characters in life-threatening situations. But it's all for a greater good ...

 

Our destination was a mystery to me. As a rule, the bait never gets informed. Basically, it's a need-to-know relationship and a safeguard.
Good bait was hard to find. Can't exactly place an ad in the classifieds.

HELP WANTED: Fast, nimble, and intelligent young person to be used as vampire bait. High risk job but well compensated with pay and benefits. Travel the world, all expenses paid. Passport a must, clean record not necessary, no education requirements, and fighting skills a bonus. Contact Red at 555-1212. Humanity needs you.

I snorted at the thought. Getting groped, chased, and then enthralled by vamps were not my idea of benefits. However, when a plan worked and a vampire got dusted, it made up for all the other stuff.

Eden Bradley Guest Blogs About The Third Book In The Erotic Wasteland Series

BY admin, JUNE 02, 2010 | PERMALINK

In 2012, the world came to a grinding halt as radiation hit from a massive solar storm. Crops died, animals perished, cities fell and humans became little more than beasts themselves. Under the threat of starvation, civility was reduced to mere memory. Only the strongest men survived, and physically weaker women and children wasted to nothingness.

More than a century later, humanity struggles in the desert Wasteland. The solar radiation rendered most women infertile, and the population dwindles more with each year that passes. Scattered up and down coasts, isolated cities eke out an existence from fishing, foraging and hunting for what little game is left. Outside the city walls, men face the threat of pirates and raiders.

Few women remain, divided into four classes — Whores, Breeders, Priestesses and Wanderers. They are as reviled as they are worshipped, a commodity any man must pay to touch. To touch a Whore, a man must sacrifice his riches. To touch a Breeder, a man must sacrifice his freedom. To touch a Priestess, a man must be chosen by the gods. And to touch a Wanderer may end up costing him his life.

There is only one rule in the Wasteland — survive.

Guest Blogger Eden Bradley
