JMF writing for sale [Mar. 4th, 2011|11:53 pm]

Two bits of news which might interest people:

1. I am auctioning copies of The Dragon Waiting, Princes of the Air, and Growing Up Weightless here to support con_or_bust. The books have all been bid on, but someone might want to bid higher. There are also lots of other things up for auction. Bidding ends Sunday March 6th at 11:59 PM EST.

2. As I believe I have mentioned here before, JMF wrote two stories set in the world of Steve Jackson Games' Car Wars. One, "Alkahest: The Deathtool Solution," has been available for free for some time (as are the game notes following it).

The other "Street Legal," has not been (and neither story has ever been reprinted as far as I know). However, the issue of Space Gamer where it appeared can be purchased as a PDF for $2.99. (The issue of Autoduel Quarterly containing "Alkahest" can also be purchased, if you want a copy that isn't yellow on black without formatting it yourself.)

I don't want to oversell this - it is after all a fairly short piece of gaming fiction (plus gaming notes). On the other hand, in the hands of John M. Ford even gaming fiction could turn into something rich and strange. So if you don't happen to own the physical magazine you might want to check it out.
