Wednesday Linkdump – February 2nd, 2011

What’s the weather like in your part of the country? Round my parts we’re getting really tired of the snow and cold. But hey, they say the groundhog didn’t see his shadow, so if you believe in woodchucks capable of prognostication then you’ve got something to look forward to.

Here’s something else to look forward to: all the time you’ll spend enjoying reading up on the following links:

  • The Elephants of Poznan: Short story by Orson Scott Card, free to read on Lightspeed Magazine’s website. Very interesting story.
  • Multiversing: What do you need to do to properly handle a story involving multiple universes? This author examines some of the implications.
  • Halo and Post-Franchise Worldbuilding: This article briefly examines what happens to a franchise world when the creators let go of it, using Halo as an example.
  • “But That’s Not Realistic!”: Blogger discusses when to keep your story realistic and when not to.
  • Writing What You Don’t Know: Good article on Tor.com about how to make the most of your story even if you don’t know how to shoot a bow, build a campfire with only flint and tinder, or do maintenance on your own hyperdrive unit.
  • 10 Mostly Forgotten Comic Book Movies: How many of these movies did you watch, and think were awesome at the time?
