It’s Thursday, which means even on Christmas I have an AMC column up. This week: My Christmas wish involving science fiction movies. No, it does not include a futuristic space massage from the lady in the artwork above. She kinda scares me. Enjoy, and be sure to leave comments, should you be spending your Christmas cruising this here interweb thingy.
Also, since the above AMC column is my last one of 2008, I thought it would be useful to give you an index of all my AMC science fiction movie columns for the year, just in case you missed one or two along the way and feel the urge to catch up.
