Website Update, Hugo Deadline, and Con Crud
Some of you have noticed I’ve been messing about with the website this week. My main goals are to set up a theme that’s cleaner, more mobile friendly, and generally just looks better. It’s still a work in progress, but so far I’m pretty happy. I’ll probably ask for feedback once I finish figuring out how all of these new-fangled buttons and features all work.
Hugo Award nominations close at the end of the day on March 31. If you’re interested in a copy of my short story “Stranger vs. the Malevolent Malignancy” for consideration, just email me at jchines -at- sff.net and I’ll be happy to send it your way.
In other news, this week continues to kick my butt, courtesy of con crud, work deadlines, and a conspiracy among various appointments and activities that won’t ease up until at least Sunday. Which is why you get a few short updates in lieu of a real blog post.
But on the bright side, remember the (overdue) story I was working on this past weekend? Well, the editor liked it, and it sounds like “On the Efficacy of Supervillain Battles in Eliciting Therapeutic Breakthroughs” will be appearing in Unidentified Funny Objects 3. This story features the return of Jarhead, therapist to the superpowered set, from my UFO2 story.

Always a fan of simple, clean website looks with nice white space. So I really am liking the new look! Very nice!
Also if anyone out there is wondering, “Stranger vs. the Malevolent Malignancy” is a great story! If you haven’t read it or heard Jim read it, you should get a copy.
Jim, hope you feel better and the schedule settles down soon!

After hearing you read “Stranger vs. the Malevolent Malignancy” at WindyCon, I’d had the 2nd Unidentified Funny Objects anthology on my “to buy” list for awhile and finally nabbed it this past weekend. Looks like I’m now adding the forthcoming UFO3 to the “to buy” list.
