The Sigil TrilogyIf 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.
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 who's 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
I was interviewed live on public radio for Critters' birthday, for those who want to listen.

In Magazine/e-zine Cover Artwork page, Hi Critters, Me again, I sent the following question through in the wrong place a minute ago. The Flying Saucer Poetry Review shows as first place in the standings but second place in the final results. Just want to make sure that some sort of error did not occur. Thank you for humoring a simultaneously very happy yet very disappointed curmudgeon. Love what you do! Justin
