Writers of MeFi Represent!

I often see AskMeFi requests for book recommendations, especially now that so many people are in Lockdown. I'm often in a bind because I think my own books would be a good fit, but it seems spammy to recommend them :) How about we create a thread here where the writers of MetaFilter can showcase our books?

Mention what kind of books we write, and put a few links in to where they can be bought or downloaded. Sound like a plan?

Did Mefi make you fan of any of 'Mefi's Own' ??

Have you discovered any artists / writers / musicians / insert-artform-here, via Metafilter who are bone fide 'Mefi's Own', that you are now big fans of? [more inside]

Time travel / Science Fiction writers (can't find thread)

Hi, not sure if this is the right place to ask, I tried MetaChat, too, but there was a thread I now can't find, it was about science fiction writers and the problem with writing from a place of omniscience when writing this time of science fiction. Anyone know what I'm talking about. I wanted to read it during lunch, can't find it!

You just didn't understand what I was going for . . .

Is there some sort of active MeFi writers group? If yes, how could one be initiated? If not, can there be? [more inside]

Please help us buy your books.

So, I was reading the writer's block post, and I had a thought....is there a central repository of all of the published writers here? I'm a pretty big book buyer, and I'd happily support the authors here. [more inside]

Announcing the Metafilter Short Fiction Anthology!

Announcing the Metafilter Short Fiction Anthology! Previously suggested by Effigy2000, the Metafilter Short Fiction Anthology is a chance for all us writer-type or vaguely-writer-type Mefites to get together and write write write! We'll be taking a "Thieves' World" approach to our writing with each story in the Anthology taking place in a setting first posited by Mefi's Own L. Fitzgerald Sjoberg and then fleshed out by himself and members of the Mefi community. All who are interested are encouraged to join in! [more inside]

Is the Metafilter writer's group dead?

I guess the Metafilter writer's group is dead? I don't see any updates from the past two months.

Exposure is the only compensation I can offer you

As you know, New York City has been in turmoil since September 11. What you don't know is that my site, World New York, has been receiving ten times the Internet traffic as usual.

Instead of feeling like a traffic whore (and instead of posting more bad poetry from grandmothers in Iowa) I'd like to share that bounty with interested writers. Send me an article, a story, a column. It does not have to be about current events. Send me things as often as you like. Perhaps there's something you've written which feel deserves more attention, or that would not be appropriate for whatever media outlet you might currently work for. In any case, if it meets my standards, I'll post it on the site with your byline and contact information.

World New York does not carry advertising, is free to visitors, and therefore has no income. It is just a little project that keeps me mildly entertained. I cannot pay you a dime, but the site receives thousands of visitors a day. The traffic is not huge, but it is decent exposure. Judging by the logs, there are many employees from newspapers and media companies reading the site: that's encouraging, and again, it's exposure. The site has already been linked to by more than 700 other web sites, and mentioned in four traditional news outlets, including the New York Times. Exposure is the only compensation I can offer you.
