Sometimes, his clone blogs about star travel in sci-fi novels.

A couple of days ago, I received a new manuscript, more than one hundred thirty thousand words long, that needs to be completely edited in under two weeks, so until it’s done, I probably won’t be blogging, other than my daily “Writing Glitch” posts.

On the other hand, my clone-sibling has a post today about star travel and FTL in written works of fiction. The post discusses not only faster-than-light travel but also the Alcubierre drive (both the original version and NASA’s new-and-improved one that “only requires the mass energy of a Volkswagen Beetle. Much more practical”), plus spacefold and jump drives and the ever-popular hyperdrive.

About Thomas Weaver

I’m a writer and editor who got into professional editing almost by accident years ago when a friend from university needed someone to copyedit his screenplay about giant stompy robots (mecha). Having discovered that I greatly enjoy this kind of work, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use ever since as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom. I'm physically disabled, and for the past several years, I’ve lived with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have six cats. (The preferred term is "Insane Cat Gentleman.") I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.
