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 with a mind meld on the next generation of SF writers — A lot of familiar (to this community) names there. I do think kenscholes 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.
