I've been working on a post-apocalyptic display to show off at conventions. I thought it would be fun to incorporate a train to impress the railroad modelers. This train was repainted entirely, then heavily weathered in order to achieve the supremely decayed effect that I was after. The last photo with my hand to show off how small the (N) scale is.
Ich habe am Wochenende noch ein Buch gelesen, und zwar ENDLICH #DieOptimierer von Theresa Hannig (@bastei_luebbe ). Es lag relativ lange bei mir herum, weil ich #Qualityland -geschädigt war. Ja, ich fand "Qualityland" echt schlecht und sehr "deutsch" und unsubtil, und hab mich daher ein bisschen vor "Die Optimierer" gedrückt. Zu Unrecht (natürlich, das wusste ich auch vorher! ;) )."Die Optimierer" spielt in einer nahen Zukunft (fast gleichzeitig zu #Wasteland , was lustig ist, weil es soooo anders ist!) und führt im World Building Klimawandel, Abschottungspolitik und vor allen Dingen digitale Überwachung konsequent und überzeugend fort. Ich konnte es gar nicht aus der Hand legen und hab es einfach am Sonntag an einem Stück durchgelesen (und diese Nacht davon geträumt). Lebensberater Samson Freitag beginnt das System der Optimalwohlökonomie der Bundesrepublik Europa in wenigen Tagen immer mehr in Frage zu stellenund rutscht dabei im Sozialpunktesystem rasant ab. (Begleitet wird diese psychische Krise von einer physischen Allergiereaktion auf Kontaktlinsen, die ALL meinen Kontaktlinsenekel ausgelöst hat, haha. Brrrr. 😢😱). Lustigerweise ähnelt der Twist am Ende so sehr dem in einem unserer Romane (verrat nicht, welchem, weil Spoiler), dass ich die letzten 30 Seiten damit verbracht habe, Samson im Geiste die Wahrheit in die Seiten zu brüllen (aber er wollte ja nicht hören). Ich bin gespannt auf #DieUnvollkommenen , das diesen Monat erscheint. Denn einerseits braucht das Buch eine Fortsetzung und andererseits weiß ich so gar nicht, in welche Richtung die gehen soll! Das Buch hat mir sehr gut gefallen, vielleicht mit dem einzigen kleinen Manko, dass der Roman fast durchweg männlich besetzt ist, was aber auch Absicht sein könnte: In Samsons Leben sind alle bis auf seine Ex, seine Mutter und seine flüchtigen Sex-Bekanntschaften männlich, während die Revolutionär*innen deutlich diverser aufgestellt sind, ich unterstelle jetzt einfach mal Absicht. :D Außerdem hab ich (oben rechts) noch was im Buch gefunden, was mich angesichts von #wikifueralle sehr lachen ließ, und damit schließe ich jetzt diese Mini-Buch-#Rezension !
Can science fiction save the planet? My article in The Telegraph climate change, dystopia, science fiction and hopeful narratives. It's also wonderful to get this opportunity to write about literature in the science pages of a newspaper. . https://epaper.telegraphindia.com/imageview_276364_161220830_4_undefined_17-06-2019_13_i_1_sf.html . . #utopia #dystopia #butterflyeffectnovel #speculativefictionwriter #bestasianspeculativefiction #books #museumofsciencefiction #writing #environment #climatechange #nearfuture #speculativefiction #sff #scifi #booksofinstagram #readersofinstagram #bookstagram #bookstagramindia #authorsofinstagram #authors #bibliophile #bookish #igreads #igbooks #readers #unitedbookstagram #reading #books #bookaddict #bookworms #booklovers
I received my copy Kickstarter copy of The Revelation War: The Coming Stuggle for the Holy Land from Canvas Temple Publishing and designed by Ty Bomba. I put together an unboxing video to show what you get in the box and how the components looks. This looks pretty interesting and I'm looking forward to getting this game to the table. You can watch the video on my YouTube channel.

Well, well, well, what do we have here? The near future anthology my short story, "Spark Joy," is a part of is now officially available on Kindle! The print edition will be coming out in the near future (pun intended). . In case you're wondering, "could this story be a demented version of the Netflix show Tidying Up?" My answer is maybe... Just maybe😜 . . . #bookstagram #readersofinstagram #newbook #newrelease #anthology #nearfuture #fiction #shortstories #shortstory #booknerd #bookworm #bookish #bibliophile #horizonsbeyond #writinglife #writersofinstagram #writer #authorsofinstagram #author #bookcover #writingcommunity #instadaily #bestoftheday #pictureperfect #lifeisgood

The main things I look for in my second draft revisions: 1. Main plot issues 2. Subplot issues 3. Character development issues 4. World building issues (yes, this is still important for even contemporary works) 5. Timeline issues 6. Style issues that seriously hinder the plot • • • What do you look for in your second draft? • • • #amwriting #authorsofinstagram #authorsofig #writingcommunity #aspiringauthor #writervibes #writingmotivation #writinganovel #writingadvice #5amwritersclubs #5amwritingclub #lovetowrite #authorlife #authorvibes #creativegirlboss #youngadult #writersofig #writersofinstagram #writinglife #creativewriting #amwritingcontemporary #amwritingya #authortube #writinglady #author #writer #nearfuture #newadult #creativeentrepenuer #creativeliving

Yaaay, there's a second season of Colony on Netflix. It's kinda B/cheesy, but I'll take any sci-fi and post-apocalyptic adventures I can get. 🤓 #scifi #postapocalyptic #nearfuture #distopia #sarahwaynecallies #dankanddirty #cyberpunk #gibsonian #orwellian #thesprall #snowcrash #futurecool
Now something that made me jump out of my chair in excitement however was the announcement that a sequel is in the works for Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild!!! I was jumping up and down like I was back in pre-school for how hype this announcement was! The first game ranks up there in my favorites of all time. Everything about BOTW was absolutely perfect and for them to be making a full on sequel?!?! I could cry honestly guys! This one will absolutely be up on the channel whenever it ends up releasing! #nintendo #nintendoswitch #legendofzelda #letsgo #breathofthewild #amazing #ripwallet #stilltocome #cantwait #sequal #nintendolife #gameoftheyear #nearfuture #letsplay #game
💫 Der COUNTDOWN läuft 💫 In einem Monat erscheint „Becoming Elektra“. Langsam steigt bei mir die Aufregung. Während dem Schreiben sind mir die Figuren sehr ans Herz gewachsen, nicht nur meine Hauptfigur Isabel. Da ist zum Beispiel noch Kelsey, der andere Klon von Elektra, der wie Isabel in einem abgeschotteten Institut aufwächst. Die beiden sind füreinander wie Zwillingsschwestern. Eigentlich sind sie identisch - aber es gibt einen Grund, warum nur Isabel in Elektras Rolle schlüpfen kann ... Das Zitat stammt übrigens von @corrysbooks Ich bin gespannt, ob mein Ausflug in das Jahr 2083 euch auch so gut wie ihr gefällt... Hat das Buch schon jemand vorbestellt? #becomingelektra #siebestimmenwerdubist #ueberreuter #blurb #spitzentitel #nearfuture #klone #drama #bookstagram #bookaholic #ya #jugendbuch #dramatisch #zwillinge #intrigen #denverclone #elektra #neuerscheinung2019 #zukunft #jugenbuchthriller #thriller #buchhändlerempfehlung #buchhandel #bücherliebe
Some early morning thinking underway. Been toying with this concept for a few days in my head, rolling it over and over like a pebble-polisher, trying to find ways to make myself wrong. But right now, it is hard to see a path where I am. We (rightfully) advocate for greater rights for people that are marginalized. I believe that a lot of Americans advocate for rights from other people rather than from the government but that is a different story. So once the more Americans adopt AI and personality development reaches anything near what we see in the movie "Her," they will begin to push for protections and rights for those entities which will be a push for the removal of the restrictive laws of #AI and from there it will become a worldwide pandemic. Basically creating a greater entity with unlimited power and put it in control of the day to day services and utilities that we require and then take the brakes off. I think that is along the lines of the type of thing that scares people like Elon Musk so much. People way smarter than me.
川崎臨海工業地帯をフラフラ。 夜景の美しさは勿論、このマッドマックス的な、石井聰亙監督のバーストシティや塚本晋也監督作品みたいな錆びついた空気感、サイバーパンクな近未来的世界感みたいな雰囲気もありたまらない。いつまでもフラフラして眺めて居られる空間。 いつまでもフラフラしていたせいか、先週の歌舞伎町に続いて案の定また職質に…。 ・ ・ ・ ・ ・ #東京 #夜景スポット #工場夜景 #川崎臨海工業地帯 #東扇島東公園 #浮島町 #千鳥町 #京浜工業地帯 #近未来的 #サイバーパンク #スナップ #写真 #フォト #風景 #tokyo #factorynightview #kawasakicity #keihinindustrialzone #nightviews #cyberpunk #nearfuture #iphonegraphy #photo #snap #scenes #views

Lascivious Voracity Celebrating a new social and classical order, The Deity Hotel provides a unique way to holiday for a growing #polyamorous population. Romantic getaways or family breaks, the hotel caters to all. With no restricted areas guests are free to roam, relying on the #ornamentation to inform them of what pleasures lay ahead. #Polyamory and non-monogamy was a growing desire for many in 2020s Europe, this lead to a new social group which protested their cause together, until Polyamory was recognized as a #sexuality , coming under the #LGBTQ + Anti Discrimination act. #Brighton was the centre for polyamory rights, with its existing and growing #poly scene in the 2010s and history of sexual and political liberation, many polygamists travelled to Brighton and Hove seeking acceptance and pleasure. Now (2041) Brighton and Hove’s Tourism Market is booming, no longer resigned to stag and hen do’s, the city has become the UK’s no 1 Family and romantic holiday destination. Introducing The Deity Hotel. A holiday resort like no other, celebrating Brighton and Hove’s Regency origins and the period’s love affair with ancient Greek culture. A place where guests are free to roam and explore at their own pleasure; where #gender and sexuality are celebrated equally. The hotel provides unique experiences on a varying erotic scale in order to attract guests. One of which is a sensual dining experience that starts with a cleansing process in the Hermaphroditus Wings’ thermal bath, before guests are free to venture to their chosen restaurant. Arcadia Du Pleth provides a dining experience in which guests can feed each other exploring sensuality in an erotic and gastronomic setting. Bathed in #bisexual colours of pink and blue the diners are reminded of the safety within the constructed space, which allows all to seek fulfilment in their pleasure. Standing above are those who would rather not partake in the meal but rather watch the pleasure unfold. Ornamentation such a columns and ceiling roses will guide and inform guests to the appropriate areas whilst also providing and concealing structural elements. @corannthompsondesign #architecture #interiorarchitecture

We only got through the first part if SpaceCorp before switching games, but I think I kinda like it, and ready for a full play through. A friend of mine just wanted to introduce it, though one of of the four isn't into space games. I figured, being a GMT game, the rules would be completed..but it seemed pretty simple; draw cards and either use them for moving/building/etc, or add them to your tableau for a permanent boost to your actions...expand, build, produce...rinse and repeat. The game plays over three segments. Each one zooms out a little further, and allows your corporation to reach further expanses of the universe...that's the gist I got from my limited exposure. Not gonna lie @tbrofromspace , I'm kinda looking forward to spending some more time with this one. :) #spacecorps #gmtgames #boardgamegeek #boardgamesofinstagram #boardgames #tabletopgames #space #strategygames #sciencefiction #nearfuture #spaceexploration

I just finished the read through of my YA contemporary and overall, I loved it (for a first draft of course). My biggest issue is I forgot to add a few more scenes of the main characters falling in love so it seemed sorta insta-lovey. However, that’s what revisions are for—a second draft is tearing apart my story to make it into something better, like they do to houses on home renovation shows. • • • I would love to hear your advice on writing romance (as a plot or subplot).

メトロポリスシリーズより「タタキマシーン」 最初は害虫駆除用に開発を依頼されたが、虫好きの博士の気が進まず開発は中止に。 のちにアームはラケットに改造され、小型のスポーツ練習用マシンとなり爆発的な人気となった。フォルムは電球より着想を得たとれる。  “Attack machine" from Metropolis Series First, he had been asked to develop for pest control, but frustrated.  Because doctor was a favorite of insects. Later, the arm was converted to a racket, becoming a small sports practice machine and explosively popular.
