Review Me Like I’m Hot

I’ll let you in on a secret, your reviews matter. Right now, we decide what we’re going to buy on our need and social proof. If you want to read superhero sci-fi, I’m your go to guy. But I can always use more social proof. I mean, who wouldn’t want fans to inform the world know about awesome books they’ve discovered. They don’t need to be lengthy. Some of the best reviews are short, to the point and rant and rave in a few sentences. So if you want to help, take a minute or two and leave a review for the above books. You’ll be doing me a solid!

Northern Frights: Maine’s Newest Horror Anthology

Buy on Amazon

Last year I stayed busy. When I wasn’t writing science fiction I was dipping into the horror genre and experimenting with how well I could scare myself through writing. I had stories accepted for the New England Horror Writers Anthology, Wicked Witches, Chris Philbrook accepted a story into Only The Light We Make, and lastly I had a story accepted by the Horror Writers of Maine. Northern Frights features horror within the boundaries of the state of Maine.

My story, Purgatory Junction features a young girl who finds herself trapped in a frightening situation in an abandoned train station. Having seen the building my entire young adult life, I never actually set foot inside the very heart of my hometown. The railroad yard and train station were primary elements featured in I.Am.Maine. Trying to keep it as close to the real building, I had help from my mother and local towns people. I also discovered my grandmother served as a warrant officer for the railroad. All of this played into the story and helped develop a tribute to the town that raised me, with a twist of horror of course.

Enjoy.

Boskone 54 – Sci-Fi & Fantasy at Boston’s Seaport

I had the opportunity to work at Boskone 54 as both a vendor and a panelist. I sat on some amazing panels and met some pretty spiffy folks. The event, overall, it was amazing. The people in attendance were voracious readers looking for new material to consume. I talked more about science fiction than I had in my entire life. I recommended books, sold some of my own, and had a chance to make some new friends with both readers and other vendors.

I was so incredibly nervous attending, but familiar faces through the New England Horror Writer’s made it bearable. I have to give a special shout out to Cat & Barry for making sure I had food and bathroom breaks. Trisha was kind enough to cover my table while I spoke on a panel and Suzanne talked geek with me while bringing me chocolate. I’m still constantly amazed with how wonderful this tribe of writers in the Northeast can be. I’m thrilled to have met them.

While at Boskone I also got interviewed by Max Bowen and Matt Zappa from Citywide Blackout of WEMF Radio. They were a riot to talk to and did a great job loosening me up while we shot the shit. We talked superheroes, zombies and where they intersect. If you want to check it out, you can listen over on Citywide’s Blog.

 In other good news, Nighthawks is currently in the process of being turned into an audio book. I’m thrilled and a slight be terrified. While that is being done behind the scenes I’m still in the middle of writing Morning Sun and on track to have it available come May. I’ll have even more good news coming in the next few weeks, but I wanted to share what I could now. Thanks for the support everybody, this wild and crazy ride is still going strong!

Author Jeremy Flagg’s Boskone Schedule

Nontraditional Magazines
Friday 20:00 – 21:00, Marina 2 (Westin)

If print is dead, then printed magazines are. But, at least in our genres, they’re going strong as online magazine and perhaps we should include blogs and both audio and video podcasts. What is the future of the magazine online and in any mutation or combination? And what does this mean for the journalist/writer?

Panel: Jeremy Flagg (M), Robert B. Finegold M.D., Julie C. Day, Ken Altabef, Neil Clarke


The Perfect Teenage Hero
Saturday 11:00 – 12:00, Harbor III (Westin)

Teenage heroes are not just relatively younger adults. They are people who step up to save the world — perhaps because of their youthful enthusiasm, not-yet-dimmed idealism, and unique perspectives. What does it take for a young Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, or Katniss Everdeen to emerge? What experiences change them? To what extent are they just pieces in older players’ games? Can they really do it on their own?

Panel: Ken Altabef (M), Jeremy Flagg, Tamora Pierce, Lauren Roy, Erin M. Hartshorn


Autographing
Saturday 15:00 – 16:00, Galleria (Westin)
Jeremy Flagg, James Patrick Kelly, Jo Walton, C. S. E. Cooney


New England: The Legend, The Lore, The Mystery
Saturday 17:00 – 18:00, Marina 3 (Westin)

New England is often a setting in speculative fiction. What is it about this place that makes it so full of wonder … and dread? It’s a magical location beyond the page or screen. Let’s talk about the real mysteries, legends, lore, and supernatural goings-on here in New England.

Panel: Peter Muise (M), Theodora Goss, John Langan, Jeremy Flagg, F. Brett Cox

The _Sense8_ Sensation
Sunday 13:00 – 14:00, Marina 4 (Westin)

It’s shot on locations worldwide and produced by the creators of The Matrix and Babylon 5, yet this Netflix TV original has largely flown under the radar. (Still, season 2 starts in March.) Panelists examine the intricate storytelling and dizzyingly diverse connections of this sens8tionally groundbreaking SF show. From gender, race, and religion to the struggle of coming to terms with one’s identity, Sense8 treats its subjects in ways network television would never touch. SPOILERS ABOUND for nonviewers, but why not sneak a peek anyway?
