My essay 2001: A Space Odyssey - Discerning Themes Through Score and Imagery has been front paged at Long Form, a site sponsored by Pitt Writers of the University of Pittsburgh Creative Writing Department. I'm both flabbergasted and incredibly pleased.

Hope you enjoyed it! And thanks, even if you disagreed with the premise I'm happy enough to know it was worth a read.

Still reading it, it's rather long, but well written. It's actually the best academic paper I've seen in a while and think their highlighting it was a good move.

I'd like o read your critique of Nobots when I get it finished, it touches on a few of the same things.

Forward me a copy or a link to a google doc. I absolutely will not share it or violate your copyright in any way, and will do my best to offer a helpful and honest critique with the hope it will improve the work. PM me and I'll forward you a gdocs link to a short story I'm working on that's currently in the critters.org queue.

Will do. I'm still editing and making minor changes so it will probably be a few more months, but I'll email a PDF when I send it to the printers. I'm publishing under the same license Cory Doctorow uses; he credits that with his status as a NYT best seller, and I think I write better than he does (of course, I'm probably the only one that thinks that).
