We have 3 submitters this round before we meet September again. I believe we have, Scott Bev and Carl submitting.

    John and Nathaniel have submitted. Do we have a third submission? Scott? Joe? Matt? Anyone? I have more I could offer but I'd prefer to wait until next month.

    Do we have a date set for the next meeting? Do we know who is submitting this time?

      I don't mind. What does it entail?

    Okay, Starship Troopers is September 12. It will be at Neshaminy Cinema in Bensalem. Showtime is not yet available, but I believe it will be 8:00. I don't have pricing yet, either, since the tickets aren't on sale, but I suspect it'll be the same as Night of the Living Dead.

    Night of the Living Dead is October 24, also at Neshaminy, showtime listed as 8:00, and tickets are $12.50.

      Ugh. I just realized I can't do it on the 12th. That's the night of the next crits at the Mermaid, and I have a chapter up.

      October 24 is also a Thursday. I'd love to do it, but not if it intersects with crit night.

    Are we getting together in Croydon in September? I remember there was mention of that happening...

    Is anyone familiar with Rifftraxx? It's the old MST3K crew, doing their thing with movies, but it's broadcast to movie theaters throughout the country live. We've got two of them coming up soon - Starship Troopers and Night of the Living Dead. I'm not sure of the exact dates, but they'll be on a Thursday night. I plan on attending at least one, possibly both, of them at the Neshaminy movie theater. Is anybody else interested in this? If so, I will share the details of when, where, and how much. Otherwise, just know that there are two Thursday nights I won't be available. :)

      It is no doubt the cherry on top of the hot fudge sundae of America's contributions. I'l post the info as soon as I track it all down.

      August 31, 2013

    • Matthew D

      I would also be interested. I'm a big fan of mst3k.

    Great seeing everyone last night! I just wanted to pass this along to you science guys and gals. This is NOT for science fiction, but rather science-based fiction or non-fiction.

      I couldn't access it because of a server error. Anyone else get the same thing?

      August 30, 2013

    • doug

      I can access it but I can't read it now.

      August 30, 2013

  • Kat

    Ok so we only have the one submission?

    August 24, 2013

    • Kevin

      I think kat merely mistyped. I don't remember ever critiquing more than 3. I'm pretty sure that used to be the limit. Anyway, its a bit late to do much about it now. See you all at the meeting.

      August 29, 2013

    • Kat

      Yeah I saw that after I made the comment. I think what happened was initially one of the stories must have been put in the folder twice. I just glanced at it and didn't realize two stories had the same title.

      August 29, 2013

  • Carl

    Four submissions this time? I only saw three. And Doug's is a long one. I'm saving it for last, and not sure if I'll get to read it all.

  • joe

    I thought I was submitting, but just saw three submissions in dropbox. No big deal. I'll pull my story for another time.

    August 26, 2013

  • Aubry

    I'll be unable to attend also - have family visiting from out of town. I will critique any submissions and have them for next time tho.

    August 26, 2013

  • doug

    Bev submitted already, I'm reading it now.

    August 26, 2013

  • Kat

    Yeah we should be but we have only 1 submission. Figures the only day I have off....

    August 26, 2013

  • doug

    Kat, are we meeting on Thursday?

    August 25, 2013

  • Scott A.

    I'm visiting friends in New England for Labor Day weekend so I won't be able to make it. Sorry about the late notice -- I didn't realize I was signed up to submit! It might be worth rescheduling this one unless we get more yes RSVPs...

    August 24, 2013

    • doug

      I'm okay with rescheduling for the following week.

      August 24, 2013

    • Scott A.

      That's fine by me, but I won't be able to make that meeting either. I have concert tickets.

      August 24, 2013

  • Carl

    Pushing it back a week would work better for me, too. I have something I'm working on right now. Maybe I'll get it in shape enough to submit. (BTW, by "something" I mean "two stores that are fighting for attention". Sheesh, it never rains but it pours.)

    August 24, 2013

  • doug

    John, Sorry you won't be there. Have fun at your dinner.

    August 23, 2013

  • doug

    I uploaded my submission. I's 5k words from a 55k word novel. This is the first revision form a first draft but I'm changing the POV from 1st past to 1st present. So if you find any POV issues, please point them out. Changing POV is a nightmare.

    August 23, 2013

  • Carl

    I'm working on a story (yay!) but I don't see it being done in time. Maybe the meeting after next.

    August 21, 2013

  • Kat

    That is fine Doug you can submit.

    August 21, 2013

  • doug

    I can submit if Carl can't.

    August 21, 2013

  • John S.

    Sorry, folks, I'm not going to be able to make this one, after all. I thought it was okay, but a friend has been juggling plans for a dinner during the last week in the month, and I just got a note that the 29th has been settled on for the date.

    August 18, 2013

  • Carl

    Me? I do not recall that.
