Best of the web

Here at Stranger Views we love writers and bloggers of all genres. So we thought we would share three of the more interesting articles we’ve found from around the web. None of these articles are that similar to what is on the Stranger Views website but all are interesting and well worth you reading.

Given how Doctor Who has taken over Stranger Views there is a good chance that if you are on this website you will also be interested in what is being said over at Destination Gallifrey. This article looks at the robots we’ve seen so far in Series 8, and is a great recap  from a writer that clearly knows his stuff. This blog is a great read both for new Whovians and those who also love the classic series.

This is a post from Jason Cantrell’s excellent blog Writing Possibilities. This is very different from the type of article you will find on Stranger Views, dealing with the pitfalls of introducing religion to fiction and also going over some of the fictional religions from literature and TV. The blog as a whole covers Jason’s writing and fantasy in general and I would recommend it to any writer or anyone looking for a deeper understanding of fantasy literature.

This is very, very different from anything you would find on Stranger Views. Rachael Spellman (Raishimi) is a synaesthetic writer whose work covers a number of subjects. I think this post is a particularly good introduction to her writing as it covers both how reading other’s work affects her as someone with synaesthesia and how having synaesthesia affects her own writing.

Rachel has two blogs, Celenagaia and Raishimi33. Although the article recommended this week was from the former I would strongly suggest also visiting the latter as it filled with reflective posts written in an absorbing style. In fact, I’ll probably be picking articles from theRaishimi33 blog in the future so you may as well save your self the time.
