Like most writers, I have a lot of friends who are also writers. Here are some of the recent writings that they’ve published online. You should go read this stuff right now!
The Great Oxygen Race
by Annalee Newitz, HiLo Brow, February 22, 2010
Annalee was my adviser in college and a friend. We don’t see each other much anymore, but I follow her writing on io9.com and was thrilled to see her story on HiLobrow. The Great Oxygen Race is a science fiction piece about a new frontier, which is pretty much the same as the old frontier.
by Leland Cheuk, Is Greater Than, May 25, 2010
Leland I got to know recently through a writing group. From what I’ve seen, he’s a great writer and Finn’s Bulletpoints is no exception. It involves the narrative of an underachieving, deviant office drone whose salacious thoughts come at us like PowerPoint slides.
A Letter to Dad
by Nick Petrulakis, Bay Area Parent, June 1, 2010
Nick I’ve known since he took the DeCal class on Stephen King that I taught at UC Berkeley. This is not fiction, but a touching letter that he really sent to his father. And, if it doesn’t make you cry, you’ve got a harder heart than me.
