In bad light, you’re a real jerk…Let’s be friends.

Oct 31st, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

My son is afraid of himself. He doesn’t like to enter his bedroom alone. The Other Bastian will ‘get’ him. The real problem is the mirror. It doesn’t hang flat against the wall and so it reflects a very slightly slanted view of the room. Bastian knows it’s just a mirror. He ignores it most […]



In ‘Email Versus Dim Sum’ Everybody Wins

May 19th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

I’ve had the privilege and delight of interviewing two very talented people in the past week, and I wanted to share a little with you all about that process and experience. Sometimes I go searching for someone to interview for Crossed Genres, and sometimes I look for someone to write an article on a topic […]



Administrative Training Activate!

May 15th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Today for Crossed Genres, I emailed an inventor and a newsperson in the hopes that they will participate in interviews for future issues of Crossed Genres. Both are brilliant at what they do, and I admire them greatly. And once again I had to turn off the SQUEE-ing fangirl in my head so I could […]

Speculative Genetics and a Portrait of a Dynamic Writer

May 12th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

So the date is set for our Speculative Genetics interview. I’m dying to see how this goes. Reply in the comments with your questions about genetics in Fantasy and SciFi – some of them may find their way into the interview. Inspire me! I have also lined up another fun interview with a hardworking, talented […]



Very Exciting Stuff

May 10th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

The Urban SFF issue is coming together nicely. I am so pleased with the stories we were sent and the cover is going to thrill our audience all on its own. You know, just like what happened when our Western issue came out. And the Humor issue before that. And Crime before that…  That’s the […]



What do Your Jeans Say About Your SFF?

May 8th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Nothing; jeans don’t talk! *eyeroll* Sorry. Bad joke. Over-used word-play. Moving on. Among the other things I did today, I’ve located someone who is probably the perfect person to interview for our Anthropomorphism issue.  She’s a geneticist, a trekkie, and she’s written a book that brings those two loves together.  Not to mention all the […]



Editing is not like playing God

May 7th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Editing is not like playing God, but those two very different things do have one tiny small aspect in common: You have to use a light touch. In case you hadn’t guessed by now, tonight was an editing night. As I was editing along through one of our Urban SFF stories, I found myself trying […]



Dreams Too Big for Our Breeches

May 5th, 2009 | By | Category: CG Blog

Today, I sent out some little Thank You! ‘cards’.  Do people even do that anymore?  I dunno.  I just felt it was important to let our past contributors know that we still appreciate them and everything they’ve done for us. I still have more to send out, though, because our contributors aren’t the only people […]
