Net Neutrality

McSciFi OnlinePosted by Bill McCormick Thu, December 14, 2017 20:17:39

Here'e the good news, as it were, on the new FCC ruling concerning net neutrality. Breitbart & Fox News, two huge users of bandwidth, will be forced to pay exorbitant fees to stay online. Which means their readers will be charged to cover those fees. Think about $20 a month and you won't be far off. The same will apply to Occupy Democrats, MSNBC and others. In one fell swoop partisan news would be eliminated.

Amazon, Target, Walmart, Ali Baba, and the rest will get killed by the new fees and go dark, online anyway, as well. No one is going to pay Sears' prices for Walmart crap. Plus the death of indy publishing is guaranteed. Along with your chance to create that cool personal coffee mug on those vanity sites.

Obviously, as a side note, that means my midget-clown porn fan sites will cost more so regular people like me may be forced to take one for the team.

On a personal note, my author site falls under the radar so you can still go there, waste your money on my writing (there are non-Amazon distribution vehicles coming in 2018), and not incur a surcharge.

Or, to put it simply this holiday season, BUY MY SHIT!

A wonderful deep dive into all aspects of The Brittle Riders from John Kaniecki. From the madness behind the covers to the madness hidden in the prose, if you want to know why things are the way they are, this is your source for answers.

Knife Fights and Chatting with Jesus

McSciFi OnlinePosted by Bill McCormick Fri, December 01, 2017 11:40:15

Not many authors could discuss the joys of getting into a knife fight with a biker and why breaking bread with Jesus would be fun. Fortunately for you I am not many authors.

Thanks to Cindy Tomamichel for the opportunity to chat.

Name 5 fictional characters you would invite to a dinner party. Where would the party be?

I wouldn’t invite anyone to a dinner party. We’d meet at a bar. Minor quibble aside, I’d invite Beowulf, Gilgamesh, Fiben, the Borg queen, and Michonne. I’m pretty sure we’d scare the piss out of everyone and never pay for a drink. I’m also sure Kahleesi would join us. I mean, seriously, how could a dragon loving woman who’s drunk blood not feel at home with this lot?

A Voice In My Head Speaks

McSciFi OnlinePosted by Bill McCormick Thu, November 30, 2017 16:38:41
Sland, from The Brittle Riders, took some time to speak with Ducky Smith at the Sci-Fi Roundtable.

Here's a sample.

SFRT: Greetings, for today’s issue of Ten Questions I’ll be talking with Sland from the Brittle Riders.

Sland: No.


Sland: Ten is too many. No one knows ten things.

SFRT: Everyone knows ten things. Most know many more.

Sland: No they don’t. I only know one. That’s all I need.

Amazon Black Friday Blowout!

McSciFi OnlinePosted by Bill McCormick Fri, November 24, 2017 15:40:08

A happy, holiday, story that starts with the death of every man woman and child on the planet, and then gets weird.

Pre-review: If David Brin came off a three day tequila bender and dropped acid, he would have written The Brittle Riders.

Bill McSciFi Speaks!

Me speek werds. Me speek gud werds.

All seriousness aside, this is a fun interview with Michael Noe and, occasionally, Kasey Hill. She's kind of quiet. We talked about The Brittle Riders, why I write, and then we took a minute to listen to me choke on vodka that went down the wrong pipe.

Think how famous I'd be if I died right then.


Yeah, that would have been fun.

Anyway, I'm still alive, the trilogy is still out, and the interview is available whenever you want to check it out.

Chatting With Geldish

McSciFi OnlinePosted by Bill McCormick Tue, November 21, 2017 12:24:45
Geldish, the alleged leader of The Brittle Riders, took time out from fomenting revolution to chat with Mary Woldering.


Although he hates all humans, for good reasons, he still managed to be somewhat polite.

Kind of.

Oh, heck, he tried, let's just give him that.

Happy Holidays!

McSciFi OnlinePosted by Bill McCormick Tue, November 21, 2017 12:18:08

Get the complete trilogy on Kindle for under $9. That's so cheap you can get enough copies to sate the literary needs of your whole family this holiday season.

Because nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing, says Happy Holidays like a joyful tale that starts with the death of every man, woman, and child on the planet.

It's just like the stories grandpa used to tell when his meds wore off.
