Brian Francis Slattery at Ficlets

Soon-to-be new science fiction author Brian Francis Slattery (whose debut novel Spaceman Blues: A Love Song is getting gushy praise from folks like Jay Lake, Catherynne M. Valente, and some dude named Harlan Ellison) has taken part in the Ficlets Spotlight program, adding a trio of really interesting Ficlets for people to play with and add onto. Come here to see them. And remember that if you're a published author or writer and want to take part in the Ficlets Spotlight program, all you have to do is write three original Ficlets, post them to the Ficlets site, and let me know. I like promoting folks who add fun things for Ficlets members to play with.

Also, for all those writers waiting for Ficlet Interview questions: Really, I'm getting off my ass on those this week. I'm going to make June a Month O' Interviews. You're gonna love it.

Harlan Ellison? Never heard of him.

And a letter press graphic at the top of his webpage. I haven't read it all yet, but I already like him.

Damn you, Scalzi. My guilt stack already fills two copy paper boxes!

I got to read Brian's book a few months ago and man, it is great. Do get a chance to read it when you get the chance.

Ok, so maybe you won't think I count, being his publicist and all, but even if I wasn't, I'd say this: Waaaaa! This book is rad. Brian is rad. I mean he plays Minutemen-inspired banjo and does awesome music project/experiments such as "The Orangutan" Check it out!


Also, if anyone reading this is coming to BEA, meet Brian at these things! You'll love him! (Brian, if you are reading this, I'm sorry if I'm embarassing you. I'm a little bit like an embarassing, over-fond aunt these days.)
