[links] Link salad for a Wednesday

I am a nominee for the Campbell Memorial Award for Mainspring Powell’s | Amazon thb | Audible ] — That’s a pleasant surprise, and I’m in very good company. I am terribly thrilled.

SF Signal reviews Escapement Amazon ] — So did June’s print issue of Locus, but they were not so much with the liking.

SF Signal with a mind meld on the next generation of SF writers — A lot of familiar (to this community) names there. I do think should have gotten more mention. See also the poll here.

Grants Pass finds a publisher — A collaborative project of which I am (or will be) a part.

APOD with a stunning photo of Dextre the robot — Wouldn’t Sinistre have been a much better name?

Determinism about the future — In which I learn about a new-to-me verb form known as “the futurate”.

BBC TV detector vans — Really?

Kucinich introduces Bush impeachment resolution — I’m baffled by the lack of Democratic support for this. It’s not like Bush’s overwhelming popularity is an impediment. Much of what’s at issue is already in the public record — unlike our last impeachment, this president has indisputably committed both high crimes and misdemeanors. And apparently (not yet sourced) a president undergoing impeachment proceedings cannot issue pardons. Which would be a very good thing with the end of this disastrous and criminal administration looming. I can only assume the Democrats are afraid of being accused of political theatre in conducting groundless “tit for tat” impeachment proceedings. The evidence should speak for itself.

    On the “pardons during impeachment” issue: That’s a statutory rule, and limited to persons also indictable as coconspirators (whether or not indicted). However, impeachment is a constitutional power, so I suspect that the statutory restriction is essentially meaningless… except if the next administration (after the impeachment target left office) tried to reindict persons who had been “improperly” pardoned. Then things could get interesting to procedure geeks like me.

    Congratulations on the nomination. Would you mind passing some of that luck this way? I’m having one of those rare weeks where the rejections and criticism is really getting me down
