  • Author August 2006 at Science Fiction!

    And this would be the Official Announcement of this years Authors and how to participate!:

    8/2006 is AUTHOR AUGUST at Science Fiction!

    This is a message from the Science Fiction community administrators:


    For the second year in a row, each and every day in August, the Science Fiction EzBoard will be spotlighting a different sf author in the Books & Authors forum.

    On the day each author is featured, you are encouraged to post something about them, anything really, in the appropriate topic thread. You need not have already read the author(s) to participate!

    If you have read something by them, you might give a brief review, or you could research a link if the author is new to you. You are of course free to comment additionaly on the authors once their special day has passed as well. The whole idea behind this event is to generate discussion, after all.

    After an exciting open nomination process, this year's AUTHOR AUGUST is looking like this:

    8/1 Robert Sheckley
    8/2 Eric Frank Russell
    8/3 Stanislaw Lem
    8/4 M. John Harrison

    We're kicking off the exciting month tomorrow with Robert Sheckley! Even if you aren't familiar with his writing you will undoubtedly have seen one of the Twilight Zone episodes he scripted. Sadly we just lost him this past year, so stop in and pay tribute. Newbies and old hats equally welcome!

        August 13th we're celebrating Octavia Butler, who of course we sadly lost in April of this year. Of course you can still catch up on the other authors as well!

          August 16th marks the 122nd birthday of the arguable father of science fiction Hugo Gernsback. We're celebrating this momentus occasion as part of our Author August 2004 at the Science Fiction EZ Board, and it's a great day to jump into the fun! Why not visit all of the threads for authors celebrated this month so far?

            August 24th marks the actual birthday of the ever controversial Orson Scott Card. Love him, or hate him, or some point in between, we'd love to hear what you have to say over at the The Science Fiction EZ Board as part of our Author August 2006 celebration. Feel free to take a few moments and post about the other authors too!

              Yes, we're nearing the end of the month, but we'll still take posts in the author threads afterwards of course. What's more, we're ending with a special 209th Birhtday topic for Mary Shelley!] Many argue that Frankenstein was the very first science fiction novel, so please come pay tribute to it's creator!
