Jim Cornelius runs the excellent blog Frontier Partisans. It’s become one of my “go to” blogs that I always read. I don’t always comment, but I read every post.
Earlier this year, in June, Jim posted about an attempt early in the 20th century to import hippos as a food source. I was struggling to come up with an idea for a story to contribute to Tales From the Otherverse, and Jim’s post kicked off the train of thought that led to “The Assassination of President Broussard”.
Jim was kind enough to ask me to write a guest post about how I wrote the story. So if any of you are interested in my thought processes in constructing this story, you can check them out here.
And make sure you read Frontier Partisans. Jim writes about some fascinating stuff.
