Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 33

Don't think I'm going to have anything ready this Quarter. Shooting for next at this point. J'nae Me either.

Re: Submission Grinder

Harlan Ellison is one of the few short story writers I'm aware of who made a go of it besides Bradbury.

He did have his fingers in a lot of other pies though.

Re: Five Minute Rant

Brandon Sanderson has nicely provided a summary page for his 2012 & 2013 lectures at BYU.

The 2013 lectures are better as its his second go around with the material.
