Gardner Dozois reviews The Book of Dreams — In which my story "Testaments" appears.

The New Weird discussed — In which I am mentioned passim.

Some Thoughts on the Hugo Short-Form Editor Category: Sheila Williams and Asimov's — What he said.

Republic XF-84H "Thunderscreech" — The write up on this x planes is weird and oddly hilarious.

Martian avalanche — Wow.

Progressive EducationLast month Juneau County (WI) District Attorney Scott Southworth sent out 24 letters to top officials in the county 5 school districts telling them to suspend sex education classes in their schools or face possible charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Don't you love conservatives?

Glenn Greenwald on the Iraq massacre video — This story is worth following regardless of your politics or your views on the Iraq War. This is what we do to people.

Heritage!The Edge of the American West on the conservative celebration of insurrection and the good old days of slavery. Confederate heritage is not a noble thing, and I say this as a son of the South. And yes, Governor McDonnell walked it back. Credit where credit is due.

This is what we do to people. To ourselves, and others. I watched the footage and found it ...unsurprising is probably the best adjective. Perhaps also the worst.

I consider it best to err on the side of early so as to avoid making someone else wait; since this may end up with me waiting, I usually bring some form of reading matter to occupy my time. (I grew up taking public transit and have a strongly ingrained “always bring a book” habit.)
