VICTOR THEREMIN RAMPAGES AGAIN!



Yup. Another Victor Theremin story, “Where Civilizations Go to Die,” has been unleashed on a shell-shocked world. And you can read it free online! In Bewildering Stories Issue 609.

For those of you don't know about Victor, he's a science fiction writer who has lost track of where the science fiction ends and his life begins, probably because some Singuarity-spawned artificial intelligences are using him to figure out humanity.

If you're curious, you can read another story in the series – also free online: “Hindenburg's Vimana Joyride” in DayBreak Magazine.

For some money that will go to the American Diabetes Association, you can buy James Palmer's Voices For the Cure anthology, and read “Human Sacrifice for Fun and Profit,” the very first Victor Theremin story.

For more money, Rick Novy's 2020 Visions, has Victor in “Radiation is Groovy, Kill the Pigs.”

If this wasn't all enough, I just started another story – that looks like it'll probably be more like a novella or (GASP!) a novel: Bring Me the Brain of Victor Theremin, that will take this madness as far as it will go.

Because things just haven't gotten crazy enough for me.

CHICANONAUTICA DOES AN ANCIENT CHICANO SCI-FI WISDOM POST-GAME SHOW

That's right, I talk about my class at UC Riverside's Writers Week over in Chicanonautica, over at La Bloga, and here we're doing something a little different.

I got to see some stuff from the Eaton Collection of Science Fiction and Fantasy:


Here's some more about the Eaton Collection:


And there's a whole YouTube playlist!

I also took some pictures in Riverside that didn't make it into the Chicanonautica piece: 

Here's the Mission Inn parrots:


Some flowers, that aren't far from the parrot cage:


And a nearby fountain:


And a statue of Frank Augustus Miller, founder of the Mission Inn, with a parrot:


Back at the Eaton Collection, this ancient Colombian printing press would make a great steampunk/alternate universe prop:
