I might possibly make this post an on-going resource and add it to the forthcoming “essays” section—which I just invented in my head now. But in any case, I’m intrigued by the ways that professional writers and media creators are using the Internet both as a promotional and creative outlet. So I’m going to create a list, perhaps with a bit of commentary on each. Consider this a work in progress.
- Fantasy writer, John Crowley
- Black Books, Father Ted, Big Train, and The IT Crowd creator, Graham Linehan
- Battlestar Galactica writer, Ron D. Moore
- William Gibson
- Doctor Who writer Paul Cornell’s House of Awkwardness
- (new) The world’s most prolific SF writer, Charlie Stross
- (new) Ken McLeod, The Early Days of a Better Nation
Suggestions from commentators are very welcome. They don’t all have to be genre writers—that’s just my own bias. I’m particuarly interested in stuff that’s “authentic”, (Hello, John!) in that it’s obviously created by the author, rather than expensively furnished by a publisher or production company—although at least two of the starting group fall into the latter category.
