SciFi on the Web.

A rather interesting site is futurismic fiction where new science fiction stories are being published. I rather like the latest which is "Consensus Building" by Tom Doyle, and is well worth a read.

Back in the 1950's the newest science fiction was published in 'pulp mags', so-called due to the paper that they were printed on, and many famous authors cut their teeth and honed their writing skills on them. People like Robert Silverberg, Andre Norton, Fred Saberhagen, Clifford Simak, and Philip K. Dick to name just a few. Perhaps the equivalent 'publishing stage' in the 21st century is the web, but if so, will the writers stories be preserved for future enjoyment? Or will they just dissappear into the electronic ether in a flurry of dying pixels? Who knows?

Sharon,

Thank you for reading and mentioning my story, "Consensus Building." Just thought you'd like to know that the Futurismic site is back up (the problems were technical, not financial). Thanks again,

Tom Doyle
