A Drive-By Squee!


The above link SHOULD go to the recently-released Marion Zimmer Bradley's Fantasy Worlds paperback. It had a limited-edition hardcover printing back in 1998, in connection with the Fantasy Worlds Con in Berkeley (I think it was Berkeley...) but this is the first mass-market edition.

And I am squeeing because my novella "Lizzie Fair and the Dragon of Heart's Desire" is back in print! Yay! ::bounce::

If you're a writer who wants to know "why write?" read this.

If you're a reader who wants to know why I write, read this.

Toni's been a friend for years. I have always been awed by her dedication, not just to her writing and to her craft, but to -- hey -- getting up in the morning sometimes. And this proves it in spades.

Once upon a time I discovered the Internet. And eventually I discovered ‎LiveJournal, because all my friends were here and they said it was cool, so I came along, and it was.

For a while.

The trouble is, LiveJournal isn't the LJ I joined any more, and what it has always been is the kind of business where the business they're running isn't actually what generates their revenue stream. It's often referred to as "monetizing" social media. It doesn't work. And the more a company tries to monetize its userbase, the less friendly it becomes as a place to spend your time. Back in the day, when people booked for the West (out of Eastern Europe), we called it "voting with their feet". And the same deal involves voting with our pocketbooks.

So I'm removing most of my journal entries from LiveJournal because I refuse to function as an unpaid content provider (money flows *to* the writer, remember?) and I'm not too thrilled with all the sneaky scripts showing up to hijack users' links and hand over their referral fees to, well ... somebody. Because not being able to get a straight answer out of the company is also troubling.

7/1/2010: ETA: I'll be removing all my journal content except this post today. Here's why: http://void-star.net/2010/01/livejournal-malware-interstitial-advertising-and-you/
