Sam’s Dot has come a long way in the last ten years, its authors being nominated for such awards as the Nebula, the Hugo, and the Bram Stoker.  Many a famous name have made a guest appearance there.  Most important, if you are a new writer, I am living proof that you can slowly work your way up the ladder and get a “book deal” or “payment” or things such as an “advance” or “publicist” for your efforts (bear with me, there’s a lot in the pipeline, and there are only twenty-four hours in a day).

I think this month’s “tuppence” column by SF award-nominated editor Tyree Campbell will be overlooked, and it’s such a terrible shame.  Especially for new talent.  Please, I urge you to read it and follow it with all your heart:

This is one way of becoming a WRITER…

This is being YOURSELF…

If someone tells you there is only one way to cross a street, well, you and I both know that that is ridiculous…

Lawrence Dagstine: “Dagstine does Egypt…”

Ancient Egypt that is! Minus the Scifi novella, a look into one of five upcoming projects between 2009 and 2010 that should wet any reader’s appetite.  This should give my fans and peers a look into what I do for inspiration and, at times, research.  From the ashes of a New Yorker’s mind, a non-fiction and fiction tale is born.  Think of an article or story like a work of architecture — Like any building, it needs a foundation drafted, then crafted, in order to stand.  A good story can also be like a work of art.  Colorful and priceless, depending on the artist.  With any dedicated and enthusiastic study, life experience also plays a major role in creation.

Whether it’s freelancing pre-dynasty non-fiction or fantasy, alternate history or occultist horror, Dagstine will do it! That’s for sure.  The hints to one of my next tales sits on this screen — well, rather yours — in front of you.  Will it have lots of mummies and real mystery? Will it involve Cleopatra? Will it showcase ancient gods and pyramids in an adventure the likes you’ve never read? I guess you’ll have to wait and see…

By the way, there’s tiny scarabs and children’s remains — mummified, I might add — in that tomb behind me (just kidding).  Coffins such as these were used by pharoahs or kings for royal pets, such as cats.  Lots of times they were mummified and buried with their owners.  Personal belongings were included for their long journey into the next world.

Sound juicy so far? Well, you better stay tuned then…

Through the work of rising authors like G. D. Falksen, Lawrence Dagstine, and Paul Marlowe, we are also pioneering the genre of “steampunk horror,” in which elements of the golden age weird tale or Gothic romance are combined with an elegant 19th-Century proto-science-fiction aesthetic, such as that embodied by Wells, Verne, and the earliest pulp writers.

The Nautilus Engine, Spring 2008… (acceptance)

My latest acceptance comes to a fairly new webzine edited by Christian Klaver.  I’ll have a reprint appearing this Spring (April-May 2008) in The Nautilus Engine —  a magazine with a focus on Robert E. Howard, among others, and tales which contain a speculative mix of ‘weird tale-like’ fantasy and scientific or horrific adventure.
