Ask Me Anything!

ASK ME ANYTHING! They found me. I don’t know how, but they found me. RUN FOR IT, MARTY!

I’ve been asked to answer the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything at an author event at reddits’ huge online writing group. Alas, I don’t have 7.5 million years to contemplate the answer, but since Deep Thought already has, I will toss you the number 42 and simply answer questions on writing. The announcement is below, and I hope to see you at the event,  or answer your pre-posted questions! The question page will come up on Sunday, December 15 at www.reddit.com/r/writing

Cheers!

UPCOMING AMA ANNOUNCEMENT FOR REDDIT: Wulf Moon, Writers of the Future Winner and Podcast Director for Future Science Fiction Digest. Monday, December 16, 6-8pm PST

Wulf Moon is an Olympic Peninsula award-winning writer and podcast director for Future Science Fiction Digest. Moon wrote his first science fiction story when he was fifteen. It won the national Scholastic Art & Writing Awards—the same contest that first discovered Stephen King, Peter S. Beagle, Truman Capote, Joyce Carol Oates and a host of iconic names in the arts. The story became his first professional sale at Science World.

Moon’s stories have been published in Third Flatiron anthologies, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds 2, Writers of the Future Vol. 35, Future Science Fiction Digest, and in Deep Magic. He has won over thirty awards in writing, winning a contest sponsored by Nora Roberts where he wrote the conclusion to her novella “Riley Slade’s Return,” and more recently winning the Critters Annual Readers’ Choice Award for Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Short Story of 2018, and in 2019, he was a winner in the international Writers of the Future Contest.

His award-winning story “Super-Duper Moongirl and the Amazing Moon Dawdler” is on the current Nebula Recommended Reading List. LOCUS magazine recently published a glowing review on this story about a disabled girl seeking a new life on the moon with her protector–a rapper robodog that serves as her life-support unit. Author Tim Powers said about the tale: “This is the kind of story I hope gets reprinted again and again for years and years to come.” Moon invites you to experience this story for yourself by reading or by listening to his narration at Future-SF for free:

Awesome Reviews and Fan Mail on “Super-Duper Moongirl and the Amazing Moon Dawdler”!

You might have heard I wrote a story that took second place in the international talent search for speculative fiction writers known as Writers of the Future. Okay, you’re here, so I think it’s safe to assume you have. You might have also heard the story has been reprinted in the professional science fiction magazine Future Science Fiction Digest, Issue #3. You might have also heard I was hired by the same editor to produce it as a podcast (see my header “Podcasts” to listen to it for free). So what’s the news? Why am I jumping up and down on your bed at 3 a.m.? FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, you say, I’M TRYING TO SLEEP!!!

Well, what you might not have heard is that wonderful, positive reviews on this story have been coming in almost every day since it was published at the start of April, 2019.  Several reviewers have also singled it out for praise, saying this story touched them and made them cry…and then told everyone they need to read it!

Well, here’s a few highlights for your review. If you missed it, I hope you’ll read the story. I hope you’ll also consider it when year end award time comes around. It means a great deal to me, and it has touched the lives of many readers from around the world. How do I know? They’ve told me.  And I’ll share just a few with you because I am happy this sweet story I wrote about a disabled girl on the Moon and her robot life support dog is not only being read, it’s getting lots of love. That’s something you may not know.

And it’s worth jumping up and down about. Continue reading “Awesome Reviews and Fan Mail on “Super-Duper Moongirl and the Amazing Moon Dawdler”!”
