I’m still taking interview questions from readers: [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ] — Thanks to those who have posted already. Will probably answer them tomorrow or over the weekend and post next Monday. This is fun.
A reader reacts to Green — Definitely not with the liking of the book. My favorite bit: Green is a bog-standard fantasy with pretensions to be more. I have achieved mediocrity!
A reader reacts to my collection Dogs In the Moonlight — Not so much with the liking of the book.
A partial review of Love and Rockets — Including some commentary on my short story, “The Women Who Ate Stone Squid”, a pastiche of Edgar Rice Burroughs and Joanna Russ. Because, yes, I could.
Wind and Mr. Ug — Quite a sweet video with a mathematical inclination. (Via willyumtx.)
A Bracing Look at the Unseen Universe — Centauri Dreams on dark energy. Interesting read.
Alabama Governor Insults All Seven or So Non-Christian Alabamans — The snark, she burns us. (Thanks to lt260.)
Rush Limbaugh Rips Fox News Panel For ‘Slobbering’ Over Obama Speech, Panel Responds (VIDEO) — Limbaugh’s comments as quoted in this piece pretty much capture everything that’s so very wrong with conservative America. Personally, I don’t want to live in a society where having a smart, articulate, oratorical leader is a bad thing. C.f. Sarah Palin.
George Lucas Destroyed Modernity — Conservative commentator Daniel Larison compares Star Trek and Star Wars in discussing a rather odd thesis advanced by Michael Lind. Science fiction meets politics.
