  • Author August at Science Fiction EZ Board

    I'd like to invite y'all to come over and post during Author August this 8/2005 at the Science Fiction EZ Board http://p090.ezboard.com/bsciencefiction

    This month long event is in part an effort to rebuild our message board after a horrible hacker attack wiped out tons of posts across all of the EZ Board network. Obviously on a site full of book and movie reviews and comments this was particularly frustrating. So I dreamt up this event and my fellow administrators thought it was a great idea.

    Each day will feature a different author and all who come to the board will be encouraged to post something about them, be it biographical, a book review, a comment, joke, or some research they just did on the web. The authors so far confirmed are:

    8/1 Robert A. Heinlein
    8/2 Clifford D. Simak
    8/3 Jack Williamson
    8/4 Andre Norton
    8/5 Chad Oliver

    Michael Moorcock is of course a shoe-in sometime during the month, but has actually yet to have been nominated. Up until the month fills with writers to write about, we're accepting additional nominations here:

      Hmm. You're actually the second person ever to mention that reaction to the color scheme (I presume that's what hurts.) I didn't design it, but it actually helped pull me in. Not that I don't like the peaceful blues and grays of Berry's board right here, but I like a little variety in my internet too. Your reaction is completely valid, but kind of a case of not being able to please everyone every time. Glad you like the content which is what counts any way.

                Well, we've reached our last day of our month long celebration, and of course we're going out with yet another bang, http://p090.ezboard.com/fsciencefict...picID=98.topic Robert Silverberg!

                Our little experiment has turned out great with lots of new discussions and shared information about fantastic authors. Of course you can still hop on over and post or read any time. Author August has been a concentrated effort in building (and after the EZ Hack, rebuilding) a valuable resource for science fiction fans to come to again and again.

                In September, we intend to take things a little bit slower on the "official front" with a http://p090.ezboard.com/fsciencefict...picID=10.topic group read of the Poul Anderson tale The Enemy Stars.
