Time Event
Well, that's a sad thing.
From wyjoe, we get the news that Jim Baen's Universe is closing up.

It was an ambitious experiment to create another, high-paying venue for short SF/F fiction. They gave it four years.

But it never quite reached the level necessary.

I'm afraid I'm not particularly surprised. It's not a real blow for me -- I don't write short stories, really -- but for those who aren't writing in the novel category this could hurt. There just aren't that many worthwhile venues available, and those that exist are getting more pinched. I wouldn't be surprised if, by the time I'm 60, all of the SF magazines are gone.
Writer's Block: I May Be Crazy
What does this Rorschach blot look like to you?

Norse brainlock...
I'm looking for a name of something that would represent the dark side of the air, as (say) Surtur represents the dark side of fire or Jormungandr would of water. I can't, however, think of anything; the only air/storm/wind-linked things that come to mind in Norse myth are on the "good guys" side. Anyone? Beuller?
