    New Iron Horse Art: "For Grant (Happy to See You Too)"

    Art, as usual, by my longtime pal and illustrator, Colby “Greenfinger” Green. Commissioned in tribute to Grant Imahara, the character Umahara is based on.

    Take care, folks, and see you again soon.

    New Story/Chapter: "Consuming Darkness" (Guest Chapter)

    My pal Zontan over at "Quills and Sofas Speedwriting" wrote a cute, very funny story. As a challenge, I wrote a continuation! He loved it and decided to publish it (with my permission of course)! If you like my comedic, feelsy writing, I'm sure it'll be up your alley. (Also, check out Zon's other stories when you get a chance, like Truth

    Story Recommendation: "Good Changes, Mostly"

    Much of my work - like The Iron Horse or the recent "Spirit of Radio" - deals with the impact of technology on society. A very recent story here on the site takes this theme and creates a beautiful tale of change and hope as

"The Iron Horse" Updates + Milestones! (3/21/16) · 12:56pm Mar 21st, 2016

Hello everyone! Well, first thing's first: The Iron Horse will update today, March 21st! It will probably be in the late afternoon, early evening time, Central Daylight Time. Not only that, you won't even have to wait long for the next chapter! That one should arrive in one week's time. :twilightsmile:

A few other milestones need mentioning, not the least of which is this:

That's right, as of yesterday evening, The Iron Horse: Everything's Better With Robots! was officially approved for the Goodfic Bin! They're known for being quite discriminating, and I'm very honored to have my story accepted. The story was approved by Architect Ironturtle. His review can be found here. Thanks a lot, Mr. Ironturtle! :twilightsmile:

Another milestone is that the story has now breached more than 500 likes. Likes might not be everything, but the tacit approval of over 500 people is something I greatly appreciate. Of course, if any of you reading this haven't liked it and feel like pushing it closer to 600, I wouldn't object. :ajsmug:

Not only that, I received my first piece of fan art. Below, we have a neat rendition of Turing Test as drawn by Zaponator! Thanks, pal!

Last, but certainly not least, the next chapter will be the first one to be officially edited by the newest member of the team, Reese! I say "officially" because Reese has, in the past, spotted several minor mistakes that went up after posting that somehow the other editors and I missed, usually minor punctuation or blink-and-you'll-miss-it typos. :twilightsheepish: I figured if he was going to do the job, might as well ask if he wanted to catch those mistakes before the chapter was posted. And he's already done a great job! Welcome to the team, Reese!

That's all for now! I hope you enjoy the chapter this evening!
