A question for R.W.W. Greene

Q: Do you have a garden? Have you ever grown your own food?

A: I grew up in rural Maine, and my family always had a garden and chickens. Summers I hayed, picked potatoes, and blueberry raked. Nowadays, I live in a smallish city, but we still do a garden every year, and there is nothing more satisfying than going outside and picking a salad. We also have a couple of apple trees that do well, a peach tree, a couple of quince trees, and blackberry bushes. My wife likes to can, so we get a lot out of the fruit. The asparagus does pretty well, too. About five years ago we got into beekeeping, not as much for the honey as to have the little guys around. They are good neighbors.

It came from Erik Goldsmith

Erik Goldsmith’s story “Sharpington’s Coffers – Current Score 49.8” was published in Metaphorosis on Friday, 8 December 2017. I wanted to write something about an unknown author (like myself) and how frustrating the publishing world can be. I don’t know about other people, but sometimes I get this gnawing feeling. rejection after rejection, that I’m not creative enough to be published, objectively speaking; that it’s not the story’s fault, but my own lack of ingenuity…

A question for David Whitaker

Q: Do you prefer your SFF as books or movies?

A: I love SFF movies, but I can never find enough of them and with a few noteworthy exceptions the production quality can often be disappointing (and the science ridiculous). By contrast, the realm of SFF books is far greater and much more satisfying!
