Vintage Geek Culture — Top Misconceptions People Have about Pulp-Era…

You know I love me some science fiction. This post, over on the tumblr site Vintage Geek Culture, is a great dispelling of the “truths” of the pulp era. Like Chuck Wendig’s post about the “Sacred Cows of Writing Advice” and Dean Wesley Smith’s books on the myths of conventional and indie publishing, it’s great to see critical looks at the way we’ve always believed things to be.

While there is always a core to these “truths,” there’s also an equal number of examples which show there is more to it.

3347 free icons for your games or apps

kraken-tentacleOkay. Honestly, I have no idea what to do with this post. It is, quite literally, 3347 free SVG and PNG icons for your games or apps from Game-icons.net.

Now here’s the thing: I’m not an app or game designer. I have no practical use for these icons in any way, shape, or form. That said, I love them all and want to figure out a way to use them in something. Maybe I can print them out and attach them to dice, a la story cubes (which, if anyone wants to get me some, I’d gladly accept). Or maybe I can use them as icons for my various folders (is that still even a thing?). Whatever the case, I just think they’re cool. And so I’m sharing them with you.
