  1. Hope Griffin Diaz – North Carolina – So, to borrow from a popular shirt, I love Jesus but I cuss a little. Well, a lot. In fact, I just don't believe Jesus really gives a shit about the word fuck. He does care if you say f you or go f yourself. But a general adjective? Nah. I am married to the love of my life, Louie (aka Luis) and have an adult child, Christy. My mum, Nancy, is still with us and active in our lives. I love to read, I fancy myself an amateur gardener, I am owned by a large black purr machine maine coon cat named Samwise aka #SamSam and a Border Collie/Australian Cattle dog mix named Daisy. I knit. I craft. I sew. These are at my leisure and are hobbies. I don't take commissions nor do I do alterations. I'm an aspiring human being. I battle several mental illnesses including depression, major panic disorder, agoraphobia, germaphobia, claustrophobia, and some other assorted illnesses. I also have fibromyalgia and have had numerous traumatic brain injuries (into the double digits now). I am not able to drive at night. I don't know where this blog is going ... if anywhere.

    Definitely Has the world ended yet. Enquiring minds need to know!

  2. I clicked the link to embiggen, and Yahoo is giving me a Jedi Mind Trick:
    This is not the page you’re looking for.

  3. It goes on to say:

    It appears you don’t have permission to view this photo or video.
    Here are some other photos from John Scalzi instead:

  4. I think I am very curious about “The Care and Feeding of your Pet Black Hole”. Is it YA?

  5. The End Of The World is Rye (as we frequently refer to rye whiskey here in Canada)
    I always suspected Tequila :P

    There are definitely a bunch of titles that are intriguing
    Try Looking Ahead
    Has the World Ended Yet
    The Care and Feeding of a Pet Black Hole

  6. Love your choices!

  7. Andrew: Well, crap. I expect to get an unhappy phone call from one of my minions, who knew Mr. Pournelle from the LA science fiction and fantasy writer’s organization. I was hoping to do some writer spotting when I was on vacation in LA, but it was not to be, and seems it will not be.

    Cultural sidelight (remembering Athena’s venture into Ermagerd!):

  8. I certainly hope Smoot is about Oliver Smoot and the night they used him to measure the MIT Bridge. I have to admit, though, that if Oliver had been at all rebellious he probably wouldn’t have willingly laid down 364.4 times, plus or minus an ear.

    I’m a huge fan of Jonathan Carroll, so The Crow’s Dinner looks especially tasty.

  10. dunyazad – I blog about movies at I create art and comics, too. You can find those at and

    Oooh! New Jonathan Carroll! Shiny!

    (Also: Steampunk Southeast Asia? That sounds tasty).

  11. Susan Peak, yes that’s cool. But I was wondering how he chose what he actually reads. I know he obviously gets a ton of ARCs but I used to as a bookseller as well. I know he also buys books from favorite authors to support their work. But with so much coming at you, I was just curious if he had some personal way he knows what to pluck out if that river of books. Thanks.
