The Journal of the Lincoln Heights Literary Society, Issue 5
Welcome to Issue 5. In our first issue I mentioned that time flies when you're over forty and it seems like I wrote that editorial only yesterday.

That being said, in these past few weeks of May, it has been impossible to avoid the story of the seventeen-year emergence of the Cicada. It is their year and the media is letting them have it. I understand the attention. It is a fascinating story.

Let us define bickering as being between a man and a woman. Some activists want to expand the definition to include same-sex arguing, but that would only weaken some of society's most sacred values.

I'm not kidding. This thing is the most amazing cleaning product I've ever tried. In case you haven't seen it, it looks like a white sponge, only lighter and squishier.

Not too long ago, I was a 40-something straight screenwriter. Then I awoke one morning to discover that I'd become a hot young gay novelist.

Sequential art jumped the paper to pixel divide like a gazelle. Then, at Plan 9 Publishing, it sort of jumped back.

Because balancing a laptop in the bathroom is tricky. Seriously, people still like the feel and smell of a book. It doesn't need batteries, cables, and you never get spammed. Also, there is a big difference between a comic at 72 dpi and a printed page at 600 dpi.

Novelization by J. M. Dillard. Based on the episode written by Rick Berman and Brannon Braga
Publisher: Pocket Books/Star Trek
Reviewed by Jane Melander
Sometimes, the line between exploiting a real-life event and merely studying it is very fine indeed. Such is the case of The Expanse -- the Season 2 finale of Star Trek Enterprise on which the novelization by J.M. Dillard is based.
First, some background. I recall the arguments of many in Trek fandom when it was announced that the producers of Enterprise would be introducing a new story arc that would have 22nd century Earth suffer a massive and sudden assault, resulting in the loss of millions of lives.
Perhaps the events of a real life attack on US soil, set at the dawn of the 21st century, were still a little too fresh in memory. There were many in fandom that worried producers Rick Berman and Brannon Braga were cashing in on the nation's own wounds and obsession of future attacks. Jumpy from anthrax attacks and color-coded terror alerts given on a continual basis (matching ironically with the yellow and red alerts of the original Star Trek series), some were all too quick to condemn the proposed story arc as potentially exploitative. With a pre-emptive war already underway in real life, the Season 3 arc for Enterprise had the potential of exploiting fact for fiction--a sort of righteous and bloody crusade that many thought would be contrary to creator Gene Roddenberry's vision of a hopeful and peaceful galaxy. We were attacked, so the rallying cry goes, so now it's time to hunt down and destroy those who would destroy us. [more]
