Keanan Brand Keanan Brand's blog:

TheStarsWereRightThe Stars Were Right by K.M. Alexander is a space opera, fantasy, street-gritty noir, crazed-villain sort of yarn set in the far future but filled with analog tech alongside gleaming splendor, and non-humanoid races mingling with humans in the many-leveled city of Lovat.

Two days agoI did something that terrified me. I joined the open mic at a reading where everyone in the room was starkers. Krissy Kneen, a friend and an author I’ve long admired, was the feature reader. I was one of the last to get up on the open mic—everyone was being so brave, reading about...

Two men went fishing on the Black Warrior River in Alabama over the weekend. What they caught wasn't what they expected.





Who the hell would be so cruel as to abandon kittens in a place like that? I hope their rescuers took care of them, and found them new homes.
