The WABC Machine

Sub-Genre Challenge (which I used in lieu of Time Travel last year)

I assume they just haven't gotten around to starting them for 2023. I'd be glad to post those if they don't.

Hi Finminer

I don't roll over every one of my challenges every year. Normally I try to do something different every year (although I haven't come up with anything yet!). Feel free to post the Sub-Genre (or Time Travel) if you would like. Sub-Genre will probably have more takers as it has more scope.

Will do - yes, I'll stick with Sub-Genre as it is more flexible. Thanks for the notice and I look forward to whatever challenge you come up with!

Can someone make a banner for the Books Read This Year 2023 "challenge." You can use the previous one or make a new one, whatever you want.

Thanks!

Please disregard my banner request. I don't think that there'll be much interest in this challenge other than myself given the time constraints. Thank you.

Can you put the flaming jack-o'-lantern banner on this year's Halloween Challenge (hope I didn't put it in twice) and add one for the other challenge I put it for September? I think this one was done before, so there might be a banner already made. I don't remember what it looked like. Or you can make a new one if you like.

Thanks!

I've put up my Anthology 2024 challenge for next year but have no idea what to do about a banner. Also, if I've put the challenge up too early, please delete it and let me know when the appropriate time is.

Repeat challenge banners are getting updated as they go in. I'm dropping new challenge banners in the challenge thread as I make them.

Hi, I just initiated the David Drake Memorial Military SF Challenge. I re-read the second sentence wording and it's not clear enough can you correct it to read:

"Try to read at least one third from WWE's Baen Reader's List of Recommendations and/or from David Drake himself."

I'll leave it to you to find a kick ass image for the banner.

Thanks so much.

Great idea for a reading challenge!

I'm working on the banner now. You might want to add something about Drake's status in the MilSF world to flesh out the memorial part of the challenge description.

Thanks. You are right, I think it needs a bit more.

------

David Drake was an icon in the Military Science Fiction world. He wrote some of the most influential fiction in the genre. His work was honest, gritty, and it touched the lives of many readers and writers.

If you have never read any of his books, make it up to yourself and join this challenge.

Did you set it to the correct dates? I've done that before, and set it for 2024 dates when we were only going into 2023! Can you see it to access it and check?

Hey Dusty, you'll need to set up your Pick & Mix again for this year. I can help you out if you want to meet up on Discord or Skype etc.

I am doing a vampire challenge. It is called: Is Vampire fiction dead (or un-dead)? I could really use help with a banner!
