Skip Nav



I have new hardware, which is going to make some of the site work a lot easier. First, I now have enough screen space for the more demanding updates. Second, I now can see the squirrelly way the CSS is behaving on a tablet browser, which means there's some chance I'll get it fixed. (It doesn't show the same error on any desktop browser with reduced window size.)

I was hoping to do some more J-Wildfire work on the said new hardware, but the font size in the interface won't enlarge to the point where I can avoid eyestrain headaches. So probably not much more flame-fractal-based artwork is forthcoming in the immediate future.

 

I've revived a first thread from the vanished Night Speech bulletin board.

These threads will mostly end up in the Background --> Cosmos --> Discussion section, but I'm not sure of the final organization below that: it will depend on how many address various subjects.

This one's in Night Land Setting: it's Infrared Chlorophyll.

In an inelegant manner, I have added a Skip Nav link to the very top of the page. This is so people using screenreaders can easily get to the main page content without having to listen to the menu read out repeatedly. The link is black, in small text, and not very visible to the sighted, but if you're tabbing through the page links, or mouse over it, it will light up.

I might get around to doing it in a less inelegant manner someday. Then again, I might not.

I'm starting another round of updating. I'm going to be putting up news and essays people have emailed me, stories that haven't been republished yet, and poems. I'm also going to republish some of the multimedia files that were up on the old site; with luck, I'll find a good plugin for that.

The Nightspeech bulletin board is no more, but while it was still up I copied it, and I'll be reposting some of the more interesting discussions from it.

First: I've changed my email address. The old Gmail address still exists, but I'm moving to Protonmail. The new address is nightscribe >at< protonmail.com.

I've fixed a couple of things that broke in a recent Chrome update.

Also: I always make remote backups of the site, but until recently I haven't had a backup for me. I'm going to be sharing the backups with Claire Robertson, our original webmaster's daughter, so she'll be able to put the site back up if something happens to me.

Henrik Möller runs a weird fiction podcast usually Swedish; it's called Udda Ting. In Udda Ting Episode 13 he interviewed Sam Gafford, John Linwood Grant, Nick Owen, Katherine Ouimet, and Kolja Aasgier. The opening of the podcast is Swedish, but the interviews are in English. English starts at 4:09, for listeners who don't speak Swedish.

I was asked, but, alas, couldn't make it. 

This is still 'olds' rather than news: I've got some other posts to make about Hodgsonian projects people told me about when I was buried with other problems.

 

I have posted Carole Carmen's excellent story "The Seeker" in The Last Redoubt section.

I still haven't managed to track down Ms. Carmen. I'm still trying.
