Hunter’s Crosshairs: Bring Out Yer Dead!

By • Dec 20th, 2011

Fan-fiction grants us the ability to change things that have happened in the main universes, or to make cut-offs before things happened that we didn’t like. I know this. I did it, once, when I created the X – M Universe @ The House of Ideas (http://thoin.mergingminds.org/fanfic/default.asp?sec=11), because it led to the deaths of dozens […]



2011 Editor Roundtable

By • Dec 19th, 2011

Going Round Robin By Hunter Lambright

By • Mar 11th, 2010

By • Feb 8th, 2010

Yes, this editorial is a little late for all the “best of” lists we saw near the end of 2009. I won’t argue that. Honestly, I wasn’t considering writing anything like this until last week, after having a couple conversations and reading a few posts. It wasn’t even anything about this particular idea. I couldn’t trace it to any one thing, but I got thinking about it…
