In my tradition of not making New Year’s resolutions, I’ve decided to be as I ever was and not blog in a very timely fashion. In the latest installment of “Where’s Beamon?” I was nearing the end of book 3, which of course ran into my real world needs of trying to prepare for a VMware exam. And while both of those things were and are happening, a villain dropped.
I’m speaking of “A Villain Considers His Options,” which subscribers to Daily Science Fiction should have already seen in their inboxes a couple weeks ago. This is the start of a series featuring the villain I call Dastard Fantastic. The second one “A Villain Turns Mad” will also appear at DSF sometime in the near future. And for those who have subscribed to my newsletter, you folks will be the only ones who get the third and (currently) final installment of the series, “A Villain’s Patented Approach.”
That’s how a villain would do it, by holding this delicious carrot over the heads of you folks who’ve yet to sign up. It’s not too late, just sayin…
Of course, that’s sometime in the nearish future. Meanwhile, you folks can enjoy “A Villain Considers His Options” today. Of funny note with this story is the bio. DSF used to ask me for a bio but this time they didn’t. I figured they were just gonna use my last one until I saw it and they were pretty much like “this is his 5th time, y’all already know who this dude is.” Apparently, I’ve hit vet status with DSF! What’s funnier is that this was actually my 6th time at DSF, which is apparently only something I’m keeping track of. Well, me and DSF’s own search database when you type in Beamon, but, you know, it’s a new year.
