things in space, etc.



I think at least 10 campers are working on sci-fi/fantasy novels during the summer here, and many of them ask for feedback from me. After a lot of time spent reading about intergalactic colonial wars, sexual abuse between orcs and fairies, and bumbling-yet-valuable sages who dress in silver lycra, it's fun to look at my notepad to see comments like "Clarify what Crystalline Wormhole Engines do" and "Is Terrentiarius a planetary god or just a spaceship commander?" and "It's unclear why the goblins were banished to live in Amsterdam" and "Explain more about how the activated galactic plasma gel converts manure into carbon."
