Triangulation Anthology is Looking for Speculative Fiction Stories - Pays up to $120/story
Parsec Ink, a speculative fiction publisher, has opened submissions to find sci-fi/f and horror stories for publication in the popular Triangulation series (now in its 13th year of publication). The theme is called “Appetites.” Writers can interpret what the theme means to them and use their creative interpretation as part of a speculative fiction story, which can include elements of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror.

I got to visit my dad in Florida last week for Thanksgiving and came home with a few fun Scooby-Doo items! I found 2nd edition printings of Scooby Apocalypse Issues 1 and 2, each featuring a red color scheme variant of the original cover artwork. My dad’s girlfriend also dug up a pencil case with classic style Scooby-Doo artwork on the side! Was very excited about these finds!
Studysketching some stuff from my Pinterest boards. Haven’t done this in a while and it’s so relaxing. 😊 btw, there are only two out of five special limited edition prints of the Mononoke piece left. Link in bio! http://ift.tt/2gNyZ3e
Still waiting to hear back from my second proofreader, so in the meantime I’ve been doing some non-academic reading with my coffee. Hope I’ll manage one last round of thesis editing this weekend, print on Monday, and hand it in on Tuesday. Frankly, I simply don’t wat to look at the document anymore, even if I still have a bit of time left until my deadline. Also, Berlin’s starting to get serious with the Christmas lights.
“According to Reverend Dibdin, the “book-plague” had reached its height in Paris and London in 1789. After the French Revolution in 1799, French aristocrats sold their estates to flee from the country and many private libraries emptied their shelves. Auction catalogs in the 18th century were teeming with French books, explains Fernández. Prices of fine antiquarian texts at least quadrupled in this period, wrote Philip Connell in the journal Representations.”
“Then, there was the group of collectors who wanted books for the mere lust of possession. In Bibliomania; or Book Madness, Dibdin describes the symptoms of bibliomania, dramatizing a rather convincing make-believe pathology. He even uses medical language as if it were an actual malady. Dibdin points out eight particular types of books that collectors obsessed over: first editions, true editions, black letter printed books, large paper copies; uncut books with edges that are not sheared by binder’s tools; illustrated copies; unique copies with morocco binding or silk lining; and copies printed on vellum.”
I apologize for the humungo post, I wanted all the images together in a master post instead of separate installments.
Remember the Jedi Knight Japanese Dictionary I posted about, with the artists Chifuyu Sasaki and Naoko Kawano? Well, @ciette on tumblr actually purchased the book (so lucky!) and was so kind in letting me see the inside by scanning all the A/P images. I haven’t gotten the book myself yet (I will someday, hopefully) but getting these scans was a major relief as I’m not all over the place wondering what I was missing out on. To top it off, it was right near my birthday; such a great gift! I wanted to post these one the 16th but circumstances made it too difficult. I’m just happy all over. I did my best; ran them through lots of filters, and with some personal touches, I think I just about re-created the look as they are in the book.
