This month's Speculative Spotlight feature is all about an awesome indie game that I played recently. It's got one of the most charming stories I've ever seen in a game, and can be enjoyed by gamers and non-gamers alike, imo:

As the daughter of a funeral director (four generations of funeral directors in my family) I just posted "Dead Tales" http://runwiththeorange.wordpress.co...lley-sorensen/ to poke fun at all the stupid questions I've been asked throughout the years. Also posted a true story on how the police departments firearms sat in my living room, unbeknown to me, for over two months.

I talk about how J.R. Ward's sold-out virtual signing of Lover At Last is good news for M/M romance writers - and SF&F writers, if they would just realize it.

I actually created a new blog this morning, dedicated to pop culture (as opposed to just my writing blog). I put up a short introductory post this morning, and I just posted an analysis of Star Trek seasons, series, and films after crunching various averages based on TV.com's average user ratings. Totally geeky.
