Good for him this means more attention for established and inspired black sci fi writers to come.

Black scifi author nominated for best novel of 2006 Distributed by

MEMPHIS, Tenn. ( Wolfgang "Wolf" Porter recently was nominated for the 2006 Darrell Award for best fantasy/adventure novel.

Porter's first novel, "Tales From the Long Road" is a fantasy/adventure for the 21st century. Finally, a story free of cute cuddly characters yet filled with intrigue, romance and terror. From start to finish, "Tales From the Long Road" will keep you guessing and put you in places only the fearless-and foolish-dare go.

Porter, a native of Newark, N.J., now resides in Arkansas. He earned his bachelor of fine arts degree from Arkansas State University, a master's in film from the Savannah College of Art & Design, is a former U.S. Naval combat cameraman. He also taught in the Arkansas Public School System. Now a writer-producer director for his own independent production company, "Wolf" uses his adventures to write books and produce movies.

The purpose of the award is to promote literacy in the mid-South by recognizing the best published regional science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Porter said he is especially interested in getting young African Americans to explore literacy through Science Fiction and Fantasy/Adventure.

"Tales From the Long Road" is available at www.dreadedenterprises. com/Long_Road.

bsm thanks-----------------------------------------------

Travel back in time 5,000 years to the world of 'Uurth' where magic
thrives! Elves and Men live side by side in the vast Eastern Empire, but
unforseen events may jeopardize the peace.

The Government of South City has secretly negotiated with a powerful
nation which after 400 years has lifted the veil of isolation. In order to
seal the treaty, an ambassador was sent to South City. Disaster struck!
Militants kidnap the Ambassador and vow to execute him! If the Envoy
is not recovered, all the magic on Uurth will not prevent war from coming
to South City!

In order to keep war at bay, the sinister organization known as 'The
Council' hatches a daring rescue plan and hires a covert team of
mercenaries. Their orders were simple; save the Ambassador at all
costs! All was going as planned, until the rescue team is taken out by a
freelancer during an altercation before they could get the assignment!
Disaster has struck again, or has it?

The mission is still on and may be in better hands! The assignment has
been taken by South City's most notorious bounty hunter. Now
unknown to all with a false identity, stolen equipment, and no particular
plan, the lives of millions depend on the wits and the cold-iron short
sword of the renegade Bounty Hunter, Wolfwalker!

Written by H. Wolfgang Porter

Technology is messin' with Sci-Fi

The very first sci-fi book I ever read has just appeared in the Gutenberg Project. I read it at age 9.

Star Surgeon by Alan E. Nourse added to Project Gutenberg 2006-06-02



I pretty much concur with the reviews but I will add that for decades I have thought that book taught me more about racism than anything me parents ever told me. I suppose my choosing that character's name for a handle says something. I eventually decided to come up with something original.


ps - Here is an e-book reader.
