Just remembered one of the things I wanted to mention — I caught another episode of the Sci-Fi Channel’s original series Welcome to Paradox on Saturday, and so far I’m rather impressed. They’re actually doing dramatic, one-hour episodes, though they’re having a bit of trouble stretching the content out to one hour (they feel like half-hour eps, hastily converted to one hour). But it is thought-provoking, and the two episodes I’ve seen have had real twists at the end that I really didn’t expect.
My Mom really likes Lagged Off thus far, so I’m encouraged and will be adding more to it. It might turn out as more novella-length, but that should still be sellable.
