Neil Cameron’s A-Z of Awesomenes
Check these out. There’s one for every letter at:
Weird Tales Where Are You?
“The Cost That Lies Between Heaven and Earth” is one of my favorite stories that I have written. It’s a story told around the spanish inquisition and I think it has the perfect blend, of sex, violence,and mystery. Definitely in the weird category.
Since I was so high on the piece I sent it to uber market Weird Tales Magazine.
Weird Tales would be apex of what may considered my writing career. They have had my submission for 4 months. At first I was thinking “Yay, they are considering it’ BUT I sent a query as to what the status was and if they actually received it. That has gone unanswered for 2 weeks so I have come to the conclusion that they are just far behind and being a top market that attracts the top talent makes perfect sense. Heck, they were even closed for submissions a while ago they were so backed up.
So, I continue to wait. Out of curiosity does anyone know if they happen to be behind?
Chris Nolan Will Try to Get the Suck Out of Superman
Nolan did a brilliant job with Dark Knight. Except for the ending and being about 15 minutes to long it was close to perfect. He captured the true feel of Bruce Wayne, the Batman and his relationship with the Joker.
The Superman franchise has been a huge mess. I’m a Marvel guy but I don’t like seeing a flagship character be reduced to crap. I hope he can capture the real Superman. The alienation that Kal-El feels and the weight of responsibility he feels towards man. PLEASE no origin story, no Luthor, and no kryptonite, unless it’s red.
