Our Sentinel Nostalgia Collection is now available to order!

The book contains selections from all eight of the Nostalgia Big Bang projects. It's print-on-demand, which means that the cost is based on how many pages are in the book, and it's priced differently depending on where you are and what currency you're using. It's over 600 pages (!) which means it's a tad pricey, but I've kept the cost as low as I possibly could without making the print so small you need sentinel vision to read it!

Please note you can't find the book by searching the Lulu website, only via the link above.

I'm sorry to be later than I promised with this: The reason it's taken so long is I had to wait for my review copy to arrive so I could make sure the artworks looked right. You can judge how words will look from the online preview, but the only way to be sure about the art was to see the real thing. I guess the holiday weekend slowed the order down a bit, too. But I've got it, it looks fab, and we're good to go!

A couple of other things: Lulu do bulk discounts (how many you have to order to qualify varies), so if you live near other fans who want copies you might be able to save a wee bit by co-ordinating an order between yourselves. The book will be available only until the end of this year, so don't wait too long. And lastly, if there's a Moonridge Auction this summer (we're still waiting on confirmation), I will donate a couple of copies on behalf of the Big Bang community.

Hi everyone. Happy New Year.

Our Big Bang is going back to our usual schedule, so signups will open in March with stories due in September ready for posting in November...unless something major happens to change our timetable.

The schedule is up on the big bang website. Over the next couple of weeks I will be reviewing all the rules and guidance pages and making any updates we need but I don't expect the rules to change much: this will be our tenth year and what we do works pretty well already.

I will post the links to the guides and faqs when I have finished them.

I do have one important question for everyone, though. I am aware that recent news has prompted a lot of people to leave Livejournal. LJ has become a lot quieter than it used to be and if moving the big bang is something the majority would like to do I'm happy to do it. What I don't want to do is add more places to cross-post - that's not easy for Patt and I to keep up with as it is. So if we move, we leave LJ.

So please let me know what you think - should we stay or go, and if we leave where should we make our new home?

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.

I know many of us feel 2016 has been a pretty horrible year and when I wish you all a happy new year, I truly do hope 2017 will be a good one.

Not everything in 2016 was horrible. We had a great big bang, didn't we?

This is a final reminder about our Nostalgia Big Bang commemorative book, because there's only a week left if you want a copy. The book contains selections from all eight of the Nostalgia Big Bang projects. It's print-on-demand, which means that the cost is based on how many pages are in the book, and it's priced differently depending on where you are and what currency you're using. It's over 600 pages (!) which means it's a tad pricey, but I've kept the cost as low as I possibly could without making the print so small only a Sentinel could read it!

The book will only be available until the end of this year, so if you don't yet have a copy and want one this is your last chance. Of course, all the stories will stay available on the Big Bang site as free ebooks - it's only the printed copy that's going away.

And in case you're wondering, there is going to be a Big Bang next year. I'll post more details about that in January, but it's definitely happening.

Enjoy the rest of the holiday, and happy new year to you all :-)
