Versatile/Inspiring Blogger Award

Sue Archer, Arcane Halloween, and Jacqueline Crawley nominated me for awards earlier this year. The awards are the Versatile Blogger Award and the Very Inspiring Blogger Award (I’m glad I wasn’t placed into the minor leagues of the simply “Inspiring Blogger Award”). Both of these awards work in a similar manner: the awarded bloggers list […]

Blog changes and awards

On Christmas Eve, I posted a list of Christmas-Themed Science Fiction, which included a large number of links to Amazon. Unfortunately, while images of book covers are fine, and links to Amazon are fine, apparently images of book covers which are also links to Amazon are strictly forbidden by WordPress. As a result, the blog […]

I know who you are

In an earlier post, I asked you to tell me about yourself and what you’d like to see on this blog in the future. This is a follow-up to share the poll results and announce some upcoming features. Please use the comments section to let me know if you think I’m moving in the right/wrong […]

Who are you, and what do you want?

Perhaps it’s in my nature to categorize and organize things, so when I decided to put some other types of content on the web, I naturally created additional blogs to house them. Some of you may be readers of my non-fiction book reviews at Seven Cities of Paper or viewers of my travel photos at […]

Alien Rover

In 2002, an alien rover landed on Earth, and Planetary Defense Command has been tracking it continuously since then. We have tapped into its transmissions to monitor the video and messages it sends home. It seems to operate primarily in Africa and Asia, with some activities in the Americas and Australia; it appears to avoid […]

Seven Cities of Paper

I’ve created a second blog; it is similar to this one except it is for non-fiction, primarily history books. If you have any interest in non-fiction/history, check it out at sevencitiesofpaper.wordpress.com Here at Planetary Defense Command, I try to shine a light on lesser-known writers, focusing on short stories to increase the number of authors […]

@PlanDefCom on twitter

Planetary Defense Command now has a twitter account: https://twitter.com/PlanDefCom The twitter account’s purpose is to allow non-wordpress users to follow the PDC; all of the story reviews will continue to appear here. I’m experimenting with some additional content on twitter that doesn’t need a full blog post: 1) Lists of upcoming story reviews 2) Running […]

The Spoiler Dragon

The Spoiler Dragon

I try to keep my reviews as vague as possible concerning plot twists or resolutions. Sometimes, it’s difficult to make a point about a story’s strengths or weaknesses without getting specific. When I’m about to get into details, I’ll display the spoiler dragon (image from Clker.com, a provider of free public-domain clip art).  The spoiler […]

Planetary Defense Command is now operational

Amazon’s Kindle store currently has 62,597 science fiction titles.  If you pull up a list or run a search on those titles, works by popular authors naturally come up first.  I’ve created this blog to help newer authors by pointing out stories I’ve enjoyed, and to help readers by pointing out stories that should be skipped.  Due […]
