There’s a good argument to […]

Hey, Easter has come … and gone. That rather crept up on me. Anyway, I need to take a few days break, but here’s some stuff to keep you amused while I’m away from the blog. It’s a boom time for dystopias, or so the New York Times tells us in this article, which surveys […]

Work forced me to take my eyes off the blog for the last week or so, but I’ve still been keeping a lookout for interesting things to share. And actually there’s quite a bit recently. Let’s start with someone who has a good claim to be one of the very best sf writers: Ursula K. Le […]

Time for another round-up of things I’ve noticed elsewhere on the world wide web.
