io9

Somehow my sci-fi romance entry got linked to sci-fi site io9, which is cool. I dropped in to read the comments. They were interesting. Some were pretty predictable given the wide variety of what I write and the target painted on romance’s back. I am a little confused by a few of the comments since they mention cyborgs. I’m not quite sure if they’re talking about my book or something else. For the record, cyborgs aren’t in RED, but that would’ve been a cool idea…if it hadn’t already been done in Blade Runner. Yes, I am a fan and own the director’s cut HD box set to prove it. πŸ™‚

I know I’m kind of taking the piss out of the whole thing because they thought I was a dude, but I really did enjoy their site. They have some interesting entries. If you get a chance, check it out.

  1. Good to see I still suck. After nine years and twelve SF books in print, I worry I might be improving a little.

    I love the instant assumption that you were a guy. They really don’t know anything about romance, do they?


  2. They definitely think you have a Cyborg in ‘Red’; but they did correct the ‘himself’ comment. πŸ™‚


  3. LOL, Lynn! I did note that they skipped right over you. *g* πŸ˜‰

    Like most people who don’t read the genre, there are gaps in their knowledge. πŸ˜€


  4. Bernard, Okay, that’s just weird. I’m not sure where they got the cyborg thing. My story is a twist on Little Red Riding Hood. Scratches head. Yes, I saw that. Nice to know I’m no longer a dude. *ggg*


  5. Maybe you could stick a cyborg in #3? πŸ˜†


  6. Now there’s a thought, Charli! πŸ˜‰


  7. I think we need a non-biased opinion on whether or not there are cyborgs in Red.

    Jordan, if you’ll just mail the file to shilohwalker at g….

    πŸ™„ Hey, it was worth a try. I don’t do the waiting patiently bit very well.

    Lynn, if the way you write sucks, then please don’t ‘improve’ because I adore your writing. 😎


  8. You know, I’m so over the scorn of SF separatists who hate kissing scenes. I do find it amusing, however, when they discuss how unworthy romance is and how much they hate it, but at being questioned further, they demonstrate they’ve never actually read one. It never reflects well on someone when they can only build something up by tearing something else down.


  9. Shi, You are shameless. πŸ˜†


  10. Ann, I noticed that, too. It just made me shake my head and laugh. It’s so totally predictable. πŸ™„


  11. LOL@shi….she should totally get points for trying πŸ˜›


  12. Oh, Amie, she gets points for trying. *ggg*


  13. I think we need a non-biased opinion on whether or not there are cyborgs in Red.

    Well, I know for sure, and I’m not telling. Let them suffer, I say.

    Lynn, if the way you write sucks, then please don’t β€˜improve’ because I adore your writing.

    Thank you, ma’am. But you’re still not getting the file out of me.


  14. Shi, You are shameless.

    That goes without saying. πŸ˜‰

    LOL@shi….she should totally get points for trying.

    I should. I’m not appreciated enough. πŸ™

    Well, I know for sure, and I’m not telling. Let them suffer, I say.

    I’m telling you, there is no justice in the world.


  15. Lynn, πŸ˜† Taunting Shiloh and io9. I wish I could say I was surprised. *ggg*


  16. Shi, Hang tough. πŸ˜‰
