As a Matter of Fact

Yes, I have seen today’s Penny Arcade. No need to send any more e-mail about it. I mean, as if I don’t read PA.

I’ve seen today’s Heretical Ideas, too. Apparently it’s a good day to be book-checked.

By John Scalzi

I enjoy pie.

I actually thought to check here before dropping you email about it, so woo.

I held my breath and jumped into the forums to see if anyone was discussing Zoe’s Tale being in the comic. Mostly it had turned into World War Z: Awesome or Dreck, along with discussions of how Gabe had drawn his wife.

Man, I saw Penny Arcade in Google Reader, got all ready to email you, and then saw your post in Reader. Way to beat me to the punch. Off-topic I have been not-so-subtly hinting to relatives that autographed Scalzi novels are a worthy gift item.

Yeah, well, I saw the comic, and it popped into my head: “Scalzi knows.” I guess my subconscious considers John Scalzi to be the Shadow of the Internet. And yes, “Shadow of the Internet” should be a book title. And no, I don’t care if it makes people think of crappy Orson Scott Card sequels.

Was nice to see the shout-out to James P. Hogan’s The Proteus Operation over at Heretical Ideas. I read that for the first time about fifteen years ago, and it’s really good stuff.

I felt “Doh!” on reading the post, since I was one of the senders of a “Hey John, Lookoverthere!” email.

But then I read the “Well, in fact, I hadn’t seen this yet before someone e-mailed me about it.” line. Now I gotta know, was it me? Was it?? Huh? Me?? :D
