Critter Notices

Network speeding up

I'm switching the connection over to a new, shiny 10X faster network because of all the load. There might be bits of downtime as your boxes learn new addresses and things. Should be brief. Let me know of any prolonged outages you see.

Preditors & Editors Changeover

With the very sad passing of Dave Kuzminski, who ran P&E, I've taken over the P&E duties. Lots of what I hope are improvements; check it out at pred-ed.com.

Free Web Sites

Free web sites for authors (and others) are available at www.nyx.net.

The Sigil Trilogy

If 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.

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)

Critters Server is Dying has been Replaced

See important details here in my blog. Let me know if you find anything that isn't working right. (Manuscripts are now available for this week, FYI.)

Book Recommendation

THE SIGIL TRILOGY: The universe is dying from within... "Great stuff... Really enjoyed it." — SFWA Grandmaster Michael Moorcock

Critters Alias

Add an Email Alias

Since some people want to email critiques from more than one email address and still get credit (i.e., both/all of them are valid)... there is this page.

Note that this page is not for changing the email address at which you receive manuscripts and critiques. That would be this page. This is solely to specify that critiques sent from either of the below addresses should count toward your credit. (I.e., otherwise I don't know that the alias is you, and you wouldn't get credit.)


First, we need your exact email address at which you receive the weekly notices (and manuscripts/critiques, if your preferences so dictate). If you're even one character off, or give the one that Critters is not using, this won't work. Email will be sent to this address confirming that your preferences have been changed, so if you do not receive this email within a short time (give it an hour, say) then this attempt to add an alias has failed.

Your (primary) email address (the one the database already knows about, e.g. the one you signed up with):


Now, your critters password, so we know this is really you :-)

Critters password:


Now enter your alternate email address, from which critiques will accrue as credit just as if mailed from the address we already had on file:


Also! You may want to send me a new Bio form if you prefer people use a different address than is currently listed.
