How to Write SF
The Craft of Writing Science Fiction that Sells by Ben Bova, best-selling author and six-time Hugo Award winner for Best Editor. (This is one of the books your ol' Critter Captain learned from himself, and I highly recommend it.) (Also via Amazon)
The Sigil TrilogyIf you're looking for an amazing, WOW! science fiction story, check out THE SIGIL TRILOGY. This is — literally — one of the best science fiction novels I've ever read.
THE SIGIL TRILOGY: The universe is dying from within... "Great stuff... Really enjoyed it." — SFWA Grandmaster Michael Moorcock

Current Time in Iran for Twitter (@Time_in_Iran)
Hi, Critterfolk (and other members of the public),
I've set up a program to tweet the current time in Iran once an hour. This is to help understand the timeframe of tweets coming out of Iran, almost half the world away from those of us in the US (timezone-wise; but very close in terms of aspirations for freedom). If you follow @Time_in_Iran, there will be no news or editorial comments, just the time tweeted once an hour.
I'm including the #IranElection and #gr88 hashtags; if there are others that people think would be helpful please contact me.
(Based on your system's clock/timezone.)
Speaking of "Green," on an unrelated topic, I recently founded a new nonprofit organization, GreenAroundYou.org, dedicated to the "sustainability" kind of Green: Promoting education and support for green activities. Have a look. :) (I'd appreciate it if you'd spread the word.)
