Spectacular GONG Stories #3: A Vin Winkle in Space-Time

Hello everyone; WB Johnson here.

I’ve decided to pick up our number count from the first two Wednesday Storytimes. I actually found the opening script of the original third one, in which I had retitled the feature as “Weekly Story Time”, citing how old Golden and Silver age comics would change their titles abruptly when the forgot to publish a book or merger with another.

Which I’m still going to do.

Taking nods from the golden age sci-fi magazines, silver age naming conventions, and the current DC Comics trend of reviving old features at the issue count they left off at, our Storytime will now be called Spectacular GONG Stories. And the first one is an interesting story set in a far future.

The Resurrection of GONG

So.

It’s been awhile, hasn’t it?

This little blog has been up for quite a while, but not much has ever gone on on it. That being said, I’d like to return from my years of abandonment of this little rinky-dink site of mine. I’ve written more, seen more, and done more than I had back when I first started this as a blog for people to submit their ideas to. Since people seem to not want to do things even when begged or cooked for, its only fair to just trudge forward and do your own thing and have others come of their own volition.

GONG will still be about Geeks, Otaku, Nerds, and Gamers. But for the time being, I think it’s going to have a lot of fiction writing. I’ve made it a solid goal of mine to become a published author and what better way to start on that than to have my stories posted on here? Hell, As it is the GONG way of things, I still wish for others to do the exact same thing with their OWN stories by posting them here.

Now, I’ve gotten abit older and abit wiser, and that means that I wo passive aggressively question why people don’t submit things. People have far better things to do than post stuff on a site that isn’t theirs half the time. Hell, I came up with this site’s idea and I haven’t written for it in forever.

As such, this is going to become my little personal blog for a while.

But don’t worry; It’ll be story time soon enough.
