Doesn't that just tend to litter the yard of your neighbors to the northeast?

Thankfully, we don't have any such neighbours. So the objects, if I hurl them with enough force, end up in the sea, where I expect they'll eventually get washed up onto the England and PA shores. Otherwise -- yeah, they're all lying in a drainage ditch or cow paddock.

Hey now, I've sent you some good ones. :oops: :oops: :oops: Stone Butch Blues, and the one you really loved by Larkin Rose.

Athena,

Did you know Melissa Good has been penning a new story? It's a sci-fi...

A Story of Humanity: The Jess and Dev Tales: http://www.merwolf. com/ffiction. html

Pretty good so far.

Thanks for letting me know. Yes I have heard about it. :) I also found out that Zee and Windstar have written a Science Fiction novel called Gray Line. Now I don't know with which one I should start. :sweat:

I love their stuff! Is this the North Star/Southern Cross story on the Academy?

I haven't read North Star or Southern Cross yet but I don't think Gray Line belongs to that series.

You can find it either on the Acedemy's Halloween Special 2010 (In several small parts): http://www.academyofbards.org/halloween/2010/index.html
Or the complete story on the Athenaeum: http://xenafiction.net/scrolls/windstar ... _line.html

But beware, at the end Zee and Windstar included the following comment:
End of Part 1
Don't send us hate mail! This turned into a trilogy, which we have finished and are sending to our lovely beta reader. They are written and will be posted, promise.
