New Feature – Dis ‘n Dat

Leaving Antarctica

I still have two days of my Antarctica Journal to put up and yes, you’ll get to see those this week, but in the meantime, I’ve decided to do a weekly round of internet doings that either relate directly or indirectly to my own blatherings on this blog.

Around the Web:

On the subject of Antarctica, Retronaut has put up a page of Frank Hurley’s famous early color photographs of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s ill-fated ‘Endurance’ voyage.

Since Favorite Female Characters seems to be a favorite page on this blog, this list of 10 Most Ass Kickingly Awesome Women Warrior Characters from Big Smudge seemed like an appropriate addendum.  Of course, there’s also the Science Channel’s Top 10 Alien Chicks to ponder.  (Gotta wonder where the Top 10 Alien Dudes list is — maybe I need to start one to balance things out).

Stargate SG-1 “Four Dragons” is now available for eBooks thanks to CrossRoads Press at $5.99 a pop versus $7.95 for the print edition.

The Science Channel is rerunning the very awesome Joss Whedon Firefly series on Sunday nights.  Best part?  star of Science Channel’s Sci-Fi Science, and the cofounder of string field theory, Dr. Michio Kaku, will be commentating on the science each episode.

Gabbed with Star Trek/Farscape Novelist extraordinare Keith DeCandido on his weekly podcast, The Chronic Rift.  We discussed writing for Stargate (natch), teaching screenwriting, and the infamous glass ceiling in Hollywood.  (You can also download the podcast on iTunes).  The Chronic Rift does a great job of pulling in authors and other pop culture contributors on a weekly basis.  I can see that it’s going to quickly become a favorite for me in my long drives in and out of town.

Lastly, but not leastly (is that a word?), SpaceGypsies caught up with me at TrekTrax Atlanta.  They put up a nice little video interview covering Four Dragons.
