Three Projects You Might Wanna Check Out

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 7.236% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

Project #1:
So if you subscribed to my newsletter, you’d have been the first to hear the special news: I’ll be hosting a book discussion in April on Seanan McGuire’s Wayward Children series over on at the Dream Foundry, a site devoted to helping new science fiction and fantasy writers get their start.

Seanan’s Wayward Children series – there’s [][currently four novellas, each of which read like lightning] – is about a halfway house for kids who’ve come back, dazzled and broken, from Narnia or Oz or whatever other fantasy world they escaped to, and currently cannot handle the real world. I’ll be looking at this from the perspective of Found Families – which is something I can’t stop writing about in my own books, apparently – and I’m compiling my questions as we speak.

It’s a fledgling site, so head over to their forums and sign up! Which means you have a week read at least one book in the Wayward Children series – which you should, because it’s pretty awesome.

Project #2:
I went with my sweetie Fox as they recently auditioned for Polygone, which is an episodic television show in production about polyamory – and I have to say, I was impressed by the reality of the script, which was still a work-in-progress. The producers and writers are working to get the details of a complex mesh of polyamorous lovers right, including some of the negative bits – I mean, it’s not a dramatic television show without some drama – and they’re holding an Indiegogo funding campaign right now to raise cash for it. Go check it out if that sounds up your avenue.

Project #3:
My friend Kelly is holding a Kickstarter for Technical Dissonance, a Cyberpunk RPG zine that gives a whole bunch of system-neutral NPCs, settings, and plotbunnies for RPGs like Shadowrun, The Sprawl, GURPS, Cyberpunk 2020. If you need a little hacker-grit in your life, I’d check it out.

    THanks Ferrett, you’re the best. I’d just add that Technical dissonance also has original fiction, art and a comic, as well as reviews and special features. It’s not all crunchy game stuff. Thanks again!

    The poly TV show sounds interesting, I’ll check the link. And I won’t be able to participate in your book discussion because of a full work schedule. I hope it goes great!
