The Dangers of Creation; or, A Machine to Rival Man by Siri Paulson
So, I was visiting my mother last week, and she'd put together a bag of stuff for me. Toys and clothes for the small, mobile one. A book she'd bought on clearance at Barnes and Noble, and another she'd borrowed from Grandma and that I could borrow from her. Some mail from people who haven't figured out that I moved out ten years ago. A first draft copy of one of my novels.
And something I'd completely forgotten about.
Up until recently, I could say that I didn't watch TV. At all. Sure, I had a TV, but no cable, so it was only ever used for movies on DVD. I moved out of my mother's house in 2005 and hadn't watched much of anything since.
Then, about a month ago, we got Netflix. (I did mention I'm a late adopter, right?)
We haven't been binging like most people do -- one or two episodes a week is about all we watch. So far, at least. (My media addiction of choice is the Internet.)
So we're catching up (very very slowly) on Doctor Who, Sherlock, and of all things, Buffy, which I never watched when it was on...and enjoying them all thoroughly.
Oddly enough, all of these series have some things in common, if you squint.
Hello readers! This is Siri Paulson checking in to tell you how 2014 is shaping up around here.
First, if you've been following my serial fantasy story "Still Waters Run Deep", you'll be pleased to know that the fifth and final installment has just been posted. (And if you haven't been following it, why not? you can access the first four installments through the same link.) Go forth and read!
Second, we usually release three works for sale each year, in April, August, and December. This year, due to unavoidable delays, we have had to postpone our April release.
However, we're excited about August and December. We're working on a new anthology for August, with a theme we think you'll really enjoy (hint: there will be both romance and fantasy). And in December, KD Sarge is back with a new SF novel featuring the fabulous duo of Taro and Rafe.
In the meantime, check back here on the first of every month for a new free short story, and every Tuesday for a blog post from one of the four intrepid TDP authors. Come say hi! We don't bite. Usually.
(Cue evil laughter...)
