Hello! Can't wait to read these stories. And this is my first ever post to any forum. What a world!

The crit group is dominant at the moment. There are a fair amount of active writers poking about here at the moment because of the CoW FFC.

I’m one of them.

As the sub reaches the anniversary of the last time it was posted in, I wanted to know how many active writers are still poking around here. I am writing but not actively seeking a publisher or looking for submission calls. If this type of information is alive and healthy in the Crit Group, I apologize for the extra thread. I've written eytanz and I'm trying to gain access.

I first listened to this story around 2012, when I was binge listening to Escape Pod's back catalogue. It's one of my favourite stories, because I love weird parallel dimension, and I'm not even that much of a movie fan. The references are hilarious though. The idea of not being able to watch all those movies would be super frustrating and reminds me a bit of all those cool RPGs, books, and and movies I've tried to snatch in my dreams and couldn't take with me to the waking world.

Alasdair: Please get out of my head - it sounds like you are talking about me! Makes me want to hug you and all of Escape Artists' team.
That's metaphorical, I'm not that keen on hugging people I've never met.  Smiley

Too close home...   Grin

(my wife and I are expecting a baby. we are both of mixed ethnicity but can "pass" as locals. we are wondering what the baby will look like, because we carry some wild mixes with us though. also, the food traditions in our majority cultures are gross, too  Wink )

Group IV is showing internal server error. This thread, when I've gone to reply to it, shows an "out of memory" error.

EDIT: Actually, it's moved between different groups, and sometimes the entire forum just refuses to load. Sounds like TappaTalk is having issues.

I've fallen woefully behind on my Escape Pod listening but since I just listened to this episode I wanted to leave a comment regarding a side of this story that was hinted at in the ending commentary but I didn't see addressed here...maybe I missed it? as I'm not a pro at this...

First it is absolutely NOT clear, contrary to the end commentary, that the antisemitic side of this story was not intended.  It plays into all the outlandish conspiracy theories about Jews - that they control the media, are planning to take over the world, control the banks, create a world is way too obvious to not be addressed.

Second every story whether the author acknowledges it or not builds on history or "baggage" as it's (somewhat) derogatorily referred to.  The fact that people will read into the story should not be simply ignored but should honestly be addressed.

Thirdly, simply looking at the story, it was boring.  No new insight was gained about the protagonist, that the Einsteins were planning a 'world government' was predictable and nothing new, and the quick ending with the main character not caring what was going to happen made no sense.

*waves to everyone*

Hi all! Danooli has kindly let me borrow her Staff of Awesomeness, and I'll be hosting the flash fiction contest this year.  Feel free to use this thread for any general questions, cheerleading, or the all-important Making of First Posts. If you're a new forum member and haven't posted on the boards yet, you'll need to make at least one post before you can access the FFC voting boards.  Oh, and you'll also want a time machine, if you're reading this before October, because they won't be appearing until then.  Wink

In the meanwhile... get writing! I'm holding the portal open until the end of September.

Obligatory, and very late, first post.  Smiley
