So, the SPSFC (the Self Published Science Fiction Competition, for those of you not following along) has launched into its second year and I’m judging again. My old crew, Team Space Lasagna, went off to form something called the No Edpools Club (apparently it is very ancient and they already have one Edpool, but it’s called No EdpoolS, see), so I made my own judging team.
I kid of course. My dear crew were a bit burned out and decided to channel their energies elsewhere, and so my new team is Team Space Leftovers and that is my final answer.
On Team Space Leftovers, we have:
Well, me, obviously. Your old pal Edpool, Hatboy, Chucky, Andrew, you know.
Then we have the inestimable Starr K, of the Pages and Procrastination blog. You can also catch her on Twitter, and what the heck, she has a Linktree so check that out. There’s nothing we like more than a bit of procrastination here at the Hatstand, that’s why Team Space Leftovers hasn’t made a proper post about this year’s books or covers or basically anything yet.
Who else have we got?
Well, we have Lloyd “Grumpylo” Lowe, who doesn’t have a blog or social medias to speak of (and yet, is somehow still grumpy!), but once said, “I am fair at reading and have loved science fiction for six decades,” so added to the grumpy thing would seem to be overqualified for this, frankly.
Finally, there’s Rick “Pax” Sloane, who … I don’t know much about him but he told me, “I love Sci Fi and would be happy to help,” so that’s something? We are scrappy underdogs and the contestants who landed with us don’t know how lucky they are!
Pax did send a picture of himself so that gives us something to work with. He seems nice. Looks to be a science officer.
I’ll get to our contestants later. In the meantime, better get reading!
