In the bad old days before the internet you only ever found like-minded fans of the Speculative Fiction genre at conventions or in specialty bookstores.
Now days we don’t feel so isolated. Scattered across the web there are many wonderful blogs dedicated to celebrating genre writing. I was lucky enough to appear as a guest on some of these blogs.
