Writers wanted

When Falls the Coliseum is seeking new contributors. We want more bloggers who are funny, provocative, insightful, opinionated, direct; who pay attention to current events, politics, culture, the way people behave; who can spot bullshit and mock it, from any political or other perspective; who will write blog posts regularly (at least a couple of times per month and preferably more often than that) in any of our categories. If the above describes you, or someone you know, our submissions page has more information about becoming a contributor.

Generous gelatinous glob, now with less Steve McQueen…

Last year The Weekly Standard kindly published my ruminations on the yearly celebration of the 1958 camp sci-fi classic The Blob in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. If you haven’t been, go see the movie in the very theater where the blob-consumes-audience scene was shot. It’s a hoot. Indeed, I had so much fun reporting the event I decided to enter this year’s BlobFest short film competition. Check out my entry if you have a spare five minutes, let me know what you think, sympathize with my long-suffering wife and pugs, etc., etc.

Happy birthday to us

No Gravatar

When Falls the Coliseum launched exactly one year ago, with our first post appearing on June 3rd, 2008, at 1:32 p.m. We have published more than 700 posts since then, and now have more than 40 contributors. This sort of hard data should impress you.

Since it’s our birthday, we expect that you’ll buy us something sparkly. And get us an ice cream cake. Don’t disappoint us. Oh, your budget is stretched as it is? Lucky for you, what we really want for our birthday doesn’t cost any money. What we really want is more readers. Thousands more. How about you e-mail a dozen friends and invite them to the party, announce us on Facebook and Twitter, maybe wear one of those sandwich boards with our URL in large print and find a good spot in a crowded intersection. You know, tell lots of people how much fun it is over here. Lie if you must and tell them we’ve got a keg and no cover charge.

Thanks to all our contributors and readers in year one, it’s been great fun so far. Here’s to year two having even more excellent posts and to the many new readers who’ll discover us.

Call for book reviewers

No Gravatar

When Falls the Coliseum wants to expand its book coverage. If you are a book reviewer, or would like to be one, we’d be happy to hear from you. Our plan is to have a weekly column or columns that cover recent books in a variety of genres. This could include mystery, crime fiction, chick-lit, science fiction, fantasy, graphic novels/comics, so-called literary fiction, romance, and all subjects of nonfiction.

If you are interested, visit our submissions page and send us a bio like the kind our contributors have written. Also indicate that you would like to review books and tell us how frequently you can do this (every week, every other week, once a month) and what genre(s) you would like to cover. [Read more →]

Contributor in the news

Congratulations to contributor Frank Wilson, whose blog Books, Inq was named one of the “100 Best Blogs” by the Sunday Times. Of course, we knew Frank when he was only famous to the many fans of his blog and to book lovers who appreciated his great work as book review editor for the Philadelphia Inquirer. We’re cutting edge like that. Don’t forget to read Frank’s column That’s What He Said every Tuesday morning at When Falls the Coliseum. Eight-thirty sharp.
