Postcards from Mars and Beyond

I skim a plethora of feeds daily, either on my smartphone or my laptop.  A headline really needs to grab my attention in a microsecond before I’ll bother to follow through with a click to drill into the meat of an article.  I almost missed last week’s post by the Kansas City Science Fiction & Fantasy Society about a review challenge gauntlet they’ve thrown down before us.   But I stopped, looked and decided, ‘Why not?’ because I’m wrapping up the Adult Winter Reading Program with the KC Library and need something else to set my sights on.

Writing shorter reviews (between fifty and a hundred words) of science fiction or fantasy books, movies, games, graphic novels, podcasts, etc. should take me less time than my normal longer-winded ones.  I’ve submitted a half dozen of these mini-reviews in the last few days, and will continue to due so until the challenge ends at ConQuest in late May.  I’m disappointed to report I will not be able to attend the con this year (at least I’ve already met the author guest of honor so I have some small consolation there) do to conflicting travel arrangements.   Perhaps 2014 will be less hectic for the Memorial Day weekend.

For more information about the challenge, follow this link and start sending in your submissions today:
