I haven’t done a full Comic Con report yet, partly because I had other things to do and partly because, damn, there was a lot of Comic Con and it’s hard to take it all in. Suffice to say that I had a fantastic time, Comic Con is overwhelming, and that I want to live […]
On Twitter, a hopeful request: Oh, well, okay. Since you asked. For those who don’t know, “Stop the GR Bullies” relates to a Web site created by some folks to go after people on Goodreads who write reviews that the people who founded the GR Bullies site find to be “bullying” in some way or […]
It is thus. As noted before, the new desktop is a Mac Mini, which I got for a number of reasons. This first is, simply, it’s relatively cheap; the other computers I was looking at were a couple of multiples more expensive, and I decided for this round of computer acquisition that I just didn’t […]
In no particular order: Pick up the dog from the boarders Set up the new desktop computer I have ordered (it’s a Mac Mini) which will arrive today Write on the video game I am working on Write more on The Human Division Polish up the president’s quarterly report Clean up my office so I […]
I think you can tell we had fun with this. And if you watch closely you’ll see an extra special cameo! Many thanks to “retrogradeheart” for recording and posting this!
Ermahgerd! Berks! Let me know if there’s anything in this pile you lust for. A larger version of the picture is here. In other news, I and all my family members are now back at home after 10 days away. It was a lovely vacation and Comic Con was a blast (apparently I also won […]
I’m heading back to Ohio after a nicely busy ComicCon. I have Internet on the plane but will be using it to catch up on some work rather than be here. I know, what sort of person am I to prioritize work over this blog. Even so. Have an excellent Monday and I will catch up with you […]
Namely, this dude, who uploaded to Amazon Kindle Store under his own name a bunch of science fiction works by others, including myself, CJ Cherryh, and Robert Heinlein. I’d note that in my case, in addition to ripping me off, he’s also ripping off Bob Eggleton, who did the inside art for the story. A […]
Seriously, I am amazed at how much stuff I am doing and how quickly time gets away from me. Just yesterday I: * Met with my editor Patrick Nielsen Hayden and talked future projects; * Walked the ComicCon floor and met Jerry and Mike from Penny Arcade in real life for the first time, after […]
Wake up (done). Shower. Go down to local public radio station for my interview on Talk of the Nation (3:30 Eastern!) Hang out with friends. Go to my sound check for w00tstock. Hang out with friends. Perform at w00tstock. Hang out with friends. Sleep! Somewhere in there I might eat and poop and Twitter (although […]
The headline says it all! I’ll be on at 3:30 Eastern (please adjust for your own time zones) to talk about Redshirts, and, I assume, other stuff as well. Here’s a link to the show’s Web site, in case you don’t have it already. This should be fun.
Here it is. It’s a RAZR MAXX, which means that I have a phone which is misspelled twice. Nevertheless, since I had the Galaxy Nexus crap out on me, I decided to give this one a shot, primarily because it has a magnificently large battery which means that I might not actually run out of […]
My phone died last night. The phone which I’ve had, you know, for not very long at all. Now I must away to a Verizon store and get a new one. This is my way of saying that for the next few hours at least, contact will be intermittent. Best to send me e-mail. My […]
You may have heard the phrase, “you have to know what the rules are before you can break them.” Well, that basic concept comes into play when one is researching history in order to throw a little magic into it. Author D.B. Jackson explains why, and how learning history mattered before breaking it in his […]
