More on Sojourn Volume Two

The second volume is coming along wonderfully! The response has been overwhelmingly positive, and quite a few authors are ahead of schedule with their submissions and edits. Oklahoma State Cowboys and Cowgirls Jerseys In fact, I’d like to congratulate Michael Budd on being the first author to complete the entire process, from submission to editing to contract signing. Adidas Ultra Boost Homme So what’s on tap for our second outing? Laura just teased some of the content in her prior post, so I’ll talk about the authors. nike air huarache femme pas cher Obviously things are subject to change, but as it stands now, it looks like Volume Two may be twice the size of Volume One. Oklahoma Sooners So far we’ve got…

  1. Every single author for Volume One coming back.
  2. Ken Hite and Eddy Webb joining us from the industry pro side.
  3. A significant number of new, up-and-coming authors.

As for my own contribution, I sent several pitches to the editors and asked them to pick the one that would add the most variety to the stories they’ve already received. Tom Brady Michigan Jersey They both picked Gnarl Saves Christmas, so I’m working on a comedy adventure, written in the form of a chintzy, holiday poem. nike My favorite gnoll will do what Elmo, Tim Allen, Ernest P. Los Angeles Clippers Worrell, and countless stop-motion characters have done before him, though he’s got his own way of handling the task. Air Jordan 11 Retro

This man had a smile and gifts in his sack, But Gnarl was hungry and just grabbed his ax. Now, fat men are not healthy for you or for me, But what cardiologist would gnollish folk see? So they clawed and they fought and they chopped him to bits, Then put what was left on their wrought iron spits. Herschel Walker Jerseys Gnarl and Sharpa hardly could speak, For they’d never fought a wizard so stupidly weak.

What’s a Sirini?

I’ve been invited to do author interviews in a few places, so I don’t want to steal any thunder from the questions they’ve sent me. But there’s one question I’ve been asked by several readers that hasn’t come up in the interviews. The story I wrote for Sojourn‘s first volume, Surviving Sunset, deals with a pair of teenage girls trying to adapt to life under alien invasion and occupation. I’ve done quite a bit to develop the universe where that story takes place, and I’ll be visiting it again in future installments of the anthology (though likely not in the next volume). The aliens menacing these girls are the Sirini. They’re not an evil race, even if they are the antagonists in this particular story. I hope to show the complexity of their culture and motivations later, but in this article I want to deal with a more basic question: What the heck is a Sirini? The race’s name is pronounced [SEER-in-ee]. asics onitsuka tiger uomo If you say the phrase, “beer in knee,” you’re basically there. (Though if you actually have that issue, you should probably seek medical help.) Oddly enough, every person I’ve talked to has mispronounced the name the exact same way — [sir-IN-ee] — so maybe they’re onto something. Baylor Bears Sirini are intelligent, cultured, and physically imposing beings, though they lack our overall agility. Asics Pas Cher They stand about 9 feet (2.75 meters) tall and are roughly 6 feet (1.8 meters) across. I doodled out the race’s appearance back in 1997. Jason Pierre-Paul However, Keith Curtis did an amazing job of helping me really figure this species out, literally starting from the inside. Sirini-SkeletonThe Sirini skeleton is designed with the major organs sitting in a saucer-shaped bone near the top of the body. Asics Gel lyte 3 Heren Rib-like structures offer some protection while leaving enough gaps for the tissue to stretch during respiration and digestion. Since the brain sits below the heart — and the legs have a lot of muscle tissue — I imagine their blood pressure being rather high. Sirini-MusclesAfter putting that together, he started adding soft tissue to the design, as you can see with the addition of muscles, trachea, and esophagus. TUBULAR SHADOW KNIT

We talked about the brain being potentially divided into two hemispheres that are coordinated by a lot less tissue than we have between ours. sirini_small_transparentThe finished art put everything in place. The only clothing they typically wear is a stole on the front-left leg. Its color indicates their philosophical inclinations (much like a human’s religious pendant). Squadra USA The three patterns are constellations that represent a Sirini’s birth circumstances (bottom), social role (middle), and personality (top). I suppose it’s something like reverse astrology — they dip into the constellations they’ve assigned meaning to, evaluate an individual, and then decide which ones best describe you. The primary role of the stole is to help Sirini understand each other at a glance. If you were trained to interpret them, you would immediately have some idea what a Sirini believes, their childhood history, their areas of expertise, and their notable personality traits. Canada Goose Citadel Parka As you can guess, Sirini have a much more open culture than we do, skipping the small talk and lengthy trust-building that would precede most humans disclosing that sort of information.
