That was... incredibly boring... · 3:25am April 28th

For those wondering, I think I've fixed all references to Martian seasons in The Maretian.

By all means, if you see one, let me know.

In the new revised calendar it's mid-winter on Sol 6, spring equinox is roughly Sol 103. Summer solstice will be Sol 296. Anything that says or suggests otherwise needs correction, so let me know.

KoFi is live. · 3:31am January 22nd

Thanks to all of you who are enjoying The Maretian! I have a small buffer built up, and I'm going to try to write something every day to keep up the daily posts. But it's time to get back on the convention circuit...

Although (at least for the time being) I hope you'll make monthly pledges via Patreon that I can budget around, I now have a KoFi for one-time tips.
