  • Book Club: Into The Black
    Last month’s Book Club selection was Into The Black by Evan Currie (587 Kindle pages, 39 chapters). Admittedly, I wasn’t thrilled about 600 pages of military space opera.

    I pushed the SEND button with my first 10-pages this morning. It’s the second time I’ve done this Writers Digest boot camp.

First published in 1953, this book was part of the curriculum of my college class, Intro to Science Fiction.[1] It’s been a while since my initial reading. The most striking aspect of this novel was the stylistic writing. Lots of fragmented … Continue reading Book Club: Fahrenheit 451
