I know I didn't leave the third installment of my trip report up top for long, but it's still one post down. I wanted to let everyone know that my latest blog post is up over at Novel Spaces. I've posted on the topic of Space Opera, which my current WIP, "Under the Ember Star" fits into. Space Opera is faster than light space ships and blasters and star spanning empires. Fun stuff. I hope you'll check it out.
That's my spaceship below, btw. It's not quite faster than light, but fast enough for me these days.
Also, thanks to everyone who visited Beat to a Pulp to read Linda Schenck's story. I much appreciate your support of this fine new writer.
Awesome! I do work for a game site under the name rebelscum. This is right up my ally.
Space opera... fun thing. My fort space opera reading was the spansh edition of Triplanetary.
Nice wheels, Charles!
nah, only a shuttlecraft! :P lol
Eric1313, I like Rebelscum. What a great name.
Deka, I read most of the Doc Smith Lensman stuff when I was a youngster. I still have one or two around.
David Cranmer, and wow does it get good gas mileage.
Laughingwolf, well said. It shuttles me back and forth pretty well.
Nice ride. I wrote a space opera novel and it was probably the most fun I ever had writing.
Bernardl, so far the Taleran books have been the most fun, but I'm enjoying "under the ember star" quite a lot.
figgered y'd get me drift, pard ;)
Space opera is off the radar for me, but I like to read what you write about, no matter what. Your comment about STAR TREK says a lot about why we read pop fiction. It applies equally to westerns when westerns are about how a man behaves with courage in certain high-stress situations. I'd argue that this is how males in our culture learn important character traits. Han Solo portrays a complexity of them that is far more instructive (and easily digestible) than a moral treatise on the same subject.
Ron, that's exactly how I feel about it. I learned a lot of good stuff about how to be good person from shows like Star Trek, and from the many great books I read, including L'Amour.
I've put my response to "Space Opera" over at Novel Spaces. Cool piece.
Schenck's story was a pleasure to read. And that's really what it's about, right? Pleasure?
Can't wait to read her next story.
I love space opera. I don't read it often enough these days.
X-Dell, I saw, made a longer comment to your response over there. For me, reading fiction is a lot about pleasure. Maybe not totally. nonfiction is different. I just slogged through 800 pages of a comparative text. Not that much fun.
Patti, thank you for commenting on her tale. I thought it was very good.
Rachel, it's just fun stuff and I like the fun.
