Not just for gun nuts

Gay gun nut Jeff from Alphecca emailed me a few weeks ago asking me to help him recruit writers for his group blog science-fiction novel, Colony Alchibah. I haven't had a chance to read much of it, but I'm finally passing along his request.

From the site's FAQ:

In the middle of the 21st century, a ship of dissidents seeking freedom from the oppressive world government of Earth land on a planet circling the star Alchibah.  There, these colonists begin a new life, a new world, a place where the limited government is subordinate to the citizens.  First they had to create that government and the documents that would constrain it.  Actually, first they had to escape Earth!  As in any sci-fi story, there are plenty of other problems as well...

"Here's the thing, writes Jeff in his email, "I have only one "liberal" (in quotes) participant. The other 11 are libertarian or conservative and I'd really like more divirsity, especially for arguments over a "constitution" and bill of rights for the new colony.  Plus, I think readers would like it if not everyone just agreed over everything."

Anybody want to belong to a virtual space colony with 11 conservatives and libertarians, most of whom are probably heavily armed?
