Virtual Tourist - Secret World Legends 9/17/17

Sorry, if I seem to have fallen off the face of the planet lately. Life just seems determined not to let me do stuff I need to! Ugh! (Writing? What's that?)

The movie this week was "American Assassin" - lots of great action and acting. Not sure their radiation treatment was correct for the protagonists, but they took it further than anyone has before. Made for some awesome scenes with the fleet!

Secret World Legends

Some definite ugly buggers are walking about Kingsmouth! Eek!

One of the survivors in the area trying hard to keep the creature population down.

One of the many types of draug. I think most are reconfigured villagers. Ack!

Weird, unearthly fires.

Harbor area. The beaches are all being used as hatching zones. Ugh

Looking back towards the harbor and town from the edge looking in.

The ladies and their tentacles are so eek! lol.

One of the things that hatch at the beach.

The Raven's Knock - town psychic lives here. Once fake, now real! She's not excited about it. lol.

One of the bridges in town. A total mess.

I need to remember to lighten the pics before uploading. DOH!

Mostly just wanted to get at least a post done this week! So tired! :P (And this is the slow month? Ugh!)

New Release - A Lone Star In The Sky

Released this week is the Future Classics volume 2 anthology - A Lone Star in the Sky.

Edited by William Ledbetter and Melanie Fletcher, the collection features stories from the members of Future Classics - a DFW Writers Group. I've been part of the group since around 2002! They even still talk to me! :P

Here are the deets and the stories inside the anthology:

The Texans are at it again!

A man sent to stop the world’s first zero-G birth. A deep space pilot who runs headlong into Einstein’s theory of relativity. A synthetic human fighting for survival in a world that sees her as disposable. All these stories and more can are in A LONE STAR IN THE SKY, the second anthology from the Future Classics speculative fiction writers' group of North Dallas. Featuring eighteen stunning stories of science fiction and fantasy. Including works by Nebula winner William Ledbetter ("The Long Fall Up"), and Nebula nominees Jake Kerr (“Biographical Fragments of the Life of Julian Prince”), and from Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam ("The Orangery”). A LONE STAR IN THE SKY covers the gamut of speculative fiction and proves once again that everything is bigger in Texas.
