Something I really hate is when people see something they don't understand, and they immediately write it off as 'stupid' or 'boring' or worse, tell people that it 'doesn't make sense'.

Reading all the reviews to Interstellar, I actually worried about that for a while. I don't know what I was worried about.

So. I finally saw Interstellar. It's one of the few Sci-Fi films to generate Oscar Buzz, and holds the princely distinction of being a film that actually has a powerful effect on the real world understanding of science. I've ...

As a rule, the ebook and the Dead Tree Edition are of equal value to me. With one exception.
 
'S' and The Love of Loved Books
Imagine a school library. First Graders going in and out, young enough to be excited by books. No cell phones or tablets to play with. A book is something exciting and new; and the school has the largest collection any of them have ever seen. Follow one kid...

Story
Introduction
Jerry Pournelle said that if you want to be a successful writer, you need to be willing to throw away your first million words.

I went one better, and made my first million words just for fun and open criticism, and I got no pay for any of them.

It's a wonder I still enjoy doing it.
