Dëthsnöw! It is Upon Us!

Dear first snow of the season:

Couldn’t wait two more days, could you.



Quick Note For Posterity

As of about an hour ago, November 2011 is Whatever’s most-visited month ever, beating out February 2010 (which had the Great Amazon/Macmillan Fracas in it). w00t! Nice to know in these crazy, Twitter and Facebook-laden days, that people are still visiting good, old-fashioned blogs. Even when they don’t regularly feature wanton, egregious nudity! So, thanks, folks.

To show my appreciation, as is the custom of teh Intarweebs, here’s a picture of a cat.

You’re welcome.

Book Title Announcement

Some of you may recall that in August I announced that I would have a book collection of my film columns out, in conjunction with the Boskone 49 science fiction convention in February, published by NESFA Press. That book now has a title:

24 Frames Into the Future: Scalzi on Science Fiction Film

Nice, right? The book is chugging along nicely, incidentally, and is soon to be sent to the printers. I’ll have more information on how to get it when information comes to me, but I feel reasonably certain in suggesting that if you attend Boskone this year, you stand an excellent chance of getting your hands on a copy, and as I will be there as Guest of Honor, an equally excellent chance of having it signed by me.

So that’s 24 Frames in February and Redshirts in June. I’ll have to see what I can come up with for later in the year. I have some ideas.
