Great Post By Nathan Lowell “Everyone’s A Critic”

Nathan Lowell just had an extremely insightful guest blog posted over at John Mierau’s blog ‘john mierau, serving worlds‘, “Everyone’s A Critic” about criticism, both positive and negative, and his take on how to handle it.

Well worth a read, and after reading John’s blog post on creativity is going into my feed reader now.

Lowell Does It Again

Author Nathan Lowell once again proves he’s got the right stuff with his novella “A Light in the Dark”.

This shorter tale is the 8th story in Lowell’s Golden Age of the Solar Clipper and is the first in the new novella series “Tales from the Deep Dark”. Nathan continues to expand his world with the fascinating story of Captain Bjorn Gunderson and Odin’s Outpost, a renegade station on the fringe of populated space.

While this work does take place in a larger world it is truly a stand alone series start and you don’t need to be familiar with the Golden Age to enjoy the work (but it doesn’t hurt).

I would highly recommend this work for any fan of Nathan Lowell’s work or good science fiction!

You can find the e-book for Kindle, Nook and Epub direct from the Author. Further reviews can be found over at Goodreads.

Some Ideas Don’t Look Better In Hindsight

My legs feel like lead.

Why you may ask…

This morning I had to take the bus to work. Having just missed the 7am bus I decided to start walking towards the office a bus stop at a time.

About 35 minutes later the next bus caught up with me with about six blocks to go.


After I got there I checked with Google Maps. 2.26 miles. I now have an even better idea just what Nathan Lowell was feeling on Day Two of Talking on My Morning Walk.

Nate I feel for you. Man do I feel your pain.

I’m fairly certain that I will be really regretting this in the morning.
