No, it was the lack of the nominees published by Orbit in the UK, except as excerpts. The entire 15-book Wheel of Time series was, in fact, included, as a single e-reader-choking 75 megabyte e-book file.
Gorgeous! But how about obtaining some photos of the Norden's Ark snow leopard babies? The ones who're on the live feed at http://www.nordensark.se/live-feed-snow-leopard-with-cubs/ There's three of those adorable squirmy little fuzzymonsters.

Have you considered popping onto Ficly and writing some ficlets about your beard? :)

If you find you are able to sell them through Lulu, I'd be happy to convert the book into eReader format for you. (I'm quite good at it. I've done conversions of Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom and Content for Cory Doctorow, and Jeffrey Carver's four Chaos Chronicles books. It's very easy.) But PDFs with their rigid formatting aren't the best source from which to start for such a conversion. If you had a Word doc version of the book for me to run through the converter, that would work best. You might also want to see if other e-book vendors, such as BooksOnBoard, would be willing to carry it for you in addition to Lulu. I know they handle such formats as eReader.

Have you considered doing an e-book version, for folks who want instant gratification and/or don't have room for any more dead trees? There are small e-book shops like BooksOnBoard.com who cut deals with small-press publishers, check 'em out.

I'm surprised nobody here has mentioned Ficly yet. http://www.ficly.com is currently the site where the Ficlets Graveyard is hosted, but it will also be "Ficlets Mark II" in a couple months after Kevin et al have completed work on the back-end. You can leave your email address for notification when it's ready.

Wow. Thanks, Wil, for blogging my requiem and my how-to guide. You've officially made my week. I sure hope the guide helps people like me who had participated in so many ficlets there would have been no way to save them all by hand. I only wish I'd come up with it sooner, so more people might have had time to see it. —Chris M./R_M

I've written an article about ficlets's impending demise at http://www.teleread.org/blog/2009/01/04/requiem-for-ficletscom/ And for all those people who need to figure out how to back up all the dozens or hundreds of ficlets they created, I've written a tutorial explaining how to back them all up automatically, including the "Mature" ones, with a lot less effort involved than copying them all into word processor windows one by one. http://terrania.us/saveyourbabies.html

Just FYI, Stand By Me is now in the $5 bins in Wal-Marts.

Mantises are also the basis for the style of kung-fu that forms the basis for the style of earthbending that one of my favorite characters from Avatar: The Last Earthbender uses. Just sayin'.

Hear, hear, Wil. I've interviewed a number of voice actors over on my Robotech podcast (http://www.terrania.us/liberty), including Chase Masterson from DS9. They've had a lot of stuff to say about voice acting, and it really does require a lot of craft.

If folks are interested in finding out more about Ficlets.com, I did a lengthy interview with one of its founders on my podcast, The Biblio File. It's neat stuff.

Good to hear you've got another job. Have you tried auditioning for a part on Heroes yet? They seem to love SF show alumni; they've cast two Trek actors so far, plus a Doctor and a villain from Doctor Who.

Incidentally, Writing.com does something similar, though I don't think they're all creative commoned. Also, if you'd like to try something ficlet style in person, check out the storytelling game Universalis. It's a game where people collaborate and compete at the same time to come up with a story.

Wil, have you ever considered hosting your own Internet talk show? Talkshoe is this great new app that lets anyone host a call-in talk show, and I'm sure you'd be one of the most entertaining hosts they've ever had. (P.S. If you do sign up and host a show, could I get the referral credit? :)

Hey, Wil, don't know if you noticed this, but your review prompted some reminiscing by Diane Duane on her involvement in an early version of the episode, which ended up being almost, but not quite, entirely unlike what actually got shot. It's at Out of Ambit.
