Story South Million Writers Award
The Story South Million Writers Award is closing nominations today - you can still nominate stories, and if you look for some stories to read in new places, the editor's story nomination list is a great place to explore new magazines, authors and stories
Lots of great and interesting stories, here are 2 that surprised me:
20 Ways the Desert Could Kill You by Sarah Pinsker at Daily Science Fiction
27 Rules for Coping by Michael Haynes at Spicey Fiction Sushi
Sky, Nature & City Blogs
Sky friday is up again, i browsed it a bit, and there are some wonderful blogs. I especially liked the one with the moon/tree as image, turns out it’s a nature blog with the playful title Shooting my Universe
And another blog I came across through sky friday: a photo blog about Jakarta: maipikucha. So many different views of this city, and great to browse this now after putting the 7 continents megacity book blog post together, and learning that Jakarta indeed is the second largest megacity of the world..
...the largest city is Tokyo, and so i looked for a blog from there, too, and arrived at a photo blog from a german photo student, who lived in Tokyo for a year, and also was in Paris, Rome, Palestins in the previous months, and revisited Tokyo: tokyofotosushi
