Curveball Issue 24 Pushed Back to June

Submitted by Christopher Wright on

... well obviously it has, because it's June. Still, a brief explanation is in order.

Issue 24 is a double-sized issue (about 16,000 words instead of the standard 8-10K) so there's more to write. On top of that, I've been putting longer hours in at work because we're testing a new release, so I have less actual time to write. This has made my hope of getting the issue out on time a bit unrealistic.

I hope that it will be out this week. I am positive it will be out this month.

Sorry for the delay. Thanks for your patience. Assuming you are, in fact, patient, and not simply apathetic. :-D

Pay Me, Bug! is in the Immerse-Or-Die StoryBundle

Update: The ImmerseOrDie bundle is now live!

The 15th of April is a day of woe and suffering here in the United States. That's our deadline for filing Federal Income Taxes, you see, and that's when a lot of us watch sadly as we stuff envelopes full of money and watch that money fly away, never to return. It's a time of change: specifically, a time when change is really all we have left, jingling uselessly in our pockets.

It's a perfect time for a StoryBundle. And if you're going to buy a StoryBundle, why not buy one with Pay Me, Bug! in it?

On April 15, StoryBundle will launch a new collection of eight indie Fantasy and Science Fiction titles. It's the ImmerseOrDie StoryBundle, eight books (including mine) that passed the ImmerseOrDie Report.

K.B. Spangler and Christopher B. Wright Discuss CleanReader on Twitter

I'm going to add a little context, but for the most part I think the tweets should speak to themselves.

Yesterday I heard about a service called CleanReader, but didn't pay too much attention to it. This morning K.B. Spangler, a fantastic web cartoonist AND author, had some very clear opinions on it:

Things I Didn't Know I Still Had: Curveball, the Webcomic Script

Submitted by Christopher Wright on

So sometimes when I dig through my files I find things that surprise me. This is one of those times.

Waaaaay back in 2000 or 2001--back when I still lived in Raleigh, NC--I came up with the basic idea that eventually turned into the Curveball Prose Comic Serial. I eventually abandoned it because I realized there was no way I could ever draw it, and I didn't know anyone who would be interested in collaborating on it. So the idea sat for... oh... about ten years before I picked it up again.

But today, as I was looking through my fiction files, I found the original script that I wrote when I still thought it might be a webcomic. And now I'm posting it for all the world to see.
