Surprising Announcements

Posted on the 09 May 2016 by Jimblack78
First off, the biggest announcement of the past week is that SF Signal is closing down.  I was disappointed because they have been my go to source for science fiction news.  Upon reading the article I can understand and sympathize with the crew.  I wish them the best in their future endeavors.  They will be missed.  

The good news is that one of the podcasts (The Three Hoarsemen) will be continuing.  If you have not been following this podcast I recommend that you give it a try.  The latest one on the fiction of C. J. Cherryh is long overdue.  Many readers do not realize the impact that her writing has had on the field.  I was glad to see that she is the latest winner of the Grandmaster award.  We should all take the time to read (and discuss) more of her works.

Adam, of the Wertzone fame, has an excellent article about blogging that was inspired by the SF Signal announcement.  Take the time to go over and read "Blogging in Age of Austerity".  Reading has given me an even greater appreciation for the efforts of the bloggers I follow.

Andrea (The Little Red Reviewer) wrote a great article about another way of looking at the SF Signal announcement.  I like her perspective of considering this a "Graduation Day".  I plan on taking this advice to heart.

Stop over and leave a note of appreciation to the SF Signal gang.  And then, let us all contribute to their legacy by stepping up our game and contributing more than ever to the SF community.  It is our turn now.
