A Disturbing Exercise

I haven't talked to Peter Watts lately, so I haven't asked the impetus of this latest project of his. But of course, being a writer, these things have a habit of busting out when they're good and ready. Go to his Newscrawl and scroll down to August 27 2006: Housecleaning, and then read each entry (aside from the very next one, which is publishing news) going back up to the top. Freaky, creepy stuff, and I'm surprised more on it hasn't been burning up the blogosphere.

What Should SFWA Do For Me?

In the middle of several issues that have arisen lately, it occurred to me that I have been hearing a variety of people state a variety of beliefs about what SFWA is, and about its relevance (or lack thereof) to them. And so I have decided to set up this forlorn blog post as a distinctly unscientific sample on what people expect and what they want from SFWA as an organization.

Some simple ground rules:

Other than that, it's wide open. Please let other interested parties know, and let's hope I don't get bombed by someone who thinks it would be good sport.

Addendum: In case it needs to be said, this is not a SFWA-sponsored poll, despite my involvement on the Board of Directors.
