The Silk Road Allies subsection of Shared Worlds now has pages for the various parts of the project. Artwork features some images related to the project -- amazingly the picture upload feature that never worked before is now working. Contributors has bios for the folks involved. Poetry lists the poems written, in approximate chronological order, and links those that are visible online. If you enjoy alternate history and want to see China and Italy make friends, come check it out!
I'm working on a major site update and reorganization. First, there is a new tab: My Work. The former tab Books Written (along with all the subsections) has moved under that. The Serial Poetry page is also there, moved from the Crowdfunding tab. The main My Work page contains summaries of some project categories, each of which will lead to a section of individual projects.
New is the Shared Worlds section. Its main page contains summaries of the collaborative projects I frequent. Each shared world will then have its own page or subsection with a more detailed project description and links to available materials such as poetry, fiction, and websites.
So far, I've created the page for The Silk Road Allies, an alternate history setting in which China and Italy made friends in the first century A.D. It arose from interactions between myself, thesilentpoet, and marina_bonomi. There are five poems written at this time; three are posted in full, one is being funded in installments, and one is slated for later publication. Those visible online have been linked.
This blog showcases my writing, editing, and other projects. It also provides space for the discussion of diverse topics. Please lean on the windowsill and join in.
