Traveling to The Future Monthly, and Looking Ahead

Over the years we — that’s Sharon Lee and Steve Miller — have done a pretty fair amount of traveling for our fiction. We’ve been Guests of Honor at conventions around the country, we’ve been to riverside hotels and motels in Canada and a pondside geese-infested hotel in Kansas City. We’ve crossed international borders in a Blazer loaded down with books and in a Subaru carrying a small box with all of our awards, ending up in Montreal, Fredericton, Toronto before returning home to Maine. We’ve traveled AMTRAK to dusty Salt Lake City, to beautiful downtown San Jose, to busy Atlanta, to Reno and to Minneapolis and Baltimore and Chicago and … well, you get the idea.

Another story read by Sharon was the joint Lee-Miller Li...

More from the archives

We continue to go through the Lee & Miller archives and as time permits will be adding old stories and splinters as we get to them. Here’s one that hasn’t been seen for awhile.

Running The Race was written by Steve and published in Dream Again: A Journal of Spirituality and Madness, back in 1995, as a follow-on for a workshop he did for his then job as Citizen Access Specialist for the Citizen Access Network . That basically meant he was  Sysop and Chief Trainer for the Maine Meeting Place BBS in its role as an attempted community center for people who, by the of their personal situation and issues, were living in isolation.  Some were physically disabled, some had mental health issues, and all needed a way to communicate.

Many of the participants in the workshop, which took place off-se...
