To Taos

IMG_3940_sm I’m doing a thing.

I’m going to the top of a mountain to seek knowledge.

Well, in this case the mountain is a ski and golf resort in New Mexico.

I am referring to Taos Toolbox, a two week master class in Science Fiction, hosted by Walter Jon Williams and Nancy Kress. Honestly, I don’t really know what to expect. There will be instructors, lectures, and critiques, but the people I talk to who have be

Shannon’s Recent Updates

“Nick loved his cousins, they were family after all, and according to his mother, you have to love family. Over the years, he had also noticed that the less he saw them, the more lovable they became. He would really love them if they moved to California.”
Shannon Ryan, Panic No More

“You do realize that the Cold War is over, right?” Okay, he’d let the first reference to communism go, but this was just ridiculous. Uncle Earl pointed at Nick. “Don’t you believe a word of it. That’s just what they want you to think.”
Shannon Ryan, Panic No More

“I know there are evil things in this world. The trick is to notice them when they are standing right in front of you.”
Shannon Ryan, Minion of Evil

“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."

[Kung Fu Monkey -- Ephemera, blog post, March 19, 2009]”
John Rogers

“Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children's children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance.”
Theodore Roosevelt
