Critter Notices

Critters is 23!

Yes, 23 years ago Critters was born. Wow! Thanks so much to all of you, who've made it such a resounding success!

Critters no longer accepting European Union members :(

It's with a heavy heart that I have to announce Critters can no longer accept people in the European Union as members. This is a result of the "GDPR" privacy laws going into effect. I'm a big fan of privacy, and applaud the general idea behind the GDPR, but the way it's implemented forces me to close the door to EU writers. [read more why...]

New Book from a Critter Member

**NOW IN PRINT EDITION TOO!** Awesome new book, HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR SPECULATIVE FICTION OPENINGS, from a Critter member whose unearthed a shard of The Secret to becoming a pro writer. Really good piece of work. "...if you're at all concerned about story openings, you'd be nuts not to read what Qualkinbush has to say." —Wil McCarthy, author of BLOOM and THE COLLAPSIUM

The Sigil Trilogy

If you're looking for an amazing, WOW! science fiction story, check out THE SIGIL TRILOGY. This is — literally — one of the best science fiction novels I've ever read.

I'm very happy to announce that P&E has been handed off to a new caretaker! Check out the site for news and such. Hurrah!

Network speeding up

I'm switching the connection over to a new, shiny 10X faster network because of all the load. There might be bits of downtime as your boxes learn new addresses and things. Should be brief. Let me know of any prolonged outages you see.

Preditors & Editors Changeover

With the very sad passing of Dave Kuzminski, who ran P&E, I've taken over the P&E duties. Lots of what I hope are improvements; check it out at pred-ed.com.

I love this story about sticky the kitty. He is so cute and been thru so much in his short life. Thank God for Chuck Hawley.


I first hear Sticky’s story through social media. Have been following his rescuer ever since. I ordered the book, two actually and was delighted with the results. It is a book I will cherish and have recommended to others. I hope for a chance to read it to children at our local library.


Great message for children and adults!

It’s a true story of a sweet innocent kitty that was saved from being actually stuck on the road, because a Good Samaritan, Chuck, took a chance to be the only one to stop and save “Sticky.”

Love the true story of Sticky and Chuck!!! And the extraordinary circumstances surrounding the development of this book and positive affirmations since the foundation was established in such a short time this year.


Chuck is an amazing man, who has done a wonderful thing in Saving Sticky, and all the charitable things revolving around it. He took his generous giving, and then applied Sticky to it, enhancing not only the amount, but the love.

This book is based upon a true life story when a man driving to work, rescued a small abandoned kitten right off the highway. On a regular basis, the man with a huge heart, Chuck Hawley, posts pictures and videos, and writes inspiring words on Facebook. Thousands of people have joined up them on their amazing journey, which has engendered a huge following of fans and supporters, across the Nation and around the World. Chuck, and his family and Sticky-the-Kitty are emissaries for kindness and hope. : )
