Heading west
I'm going to be on travel until August 6. There may be posts (Sorry I can't finish the Hugo stuff, hopefully you enjoyed what I did post) but not that many of them. I will also be completely incommunicado and off grid for the week starting July 22. Yes, the...

Doctor Who teaser...
...and what does it tell us? On the face of it, not much. The teaser is fifty seconds and features the three new companions, Yasmin (Who I keep mis-spelling), Ryan and Graham sitting in some kind of cafe eating lunch. Everything shakes, and the empty pizza ...

Frozen
I've actually talked to a couple of the scientists involved with the IceCube observatory. It's called that because it's buried in the Antarctic ice...which nicely blocks everything but what they're looking for. Neutrinos. And boy have they found them. Not o...

Hugo Thoughts: Editor - Long Form
I'm not going to go through these. The problem with editor - long form is that when a novel editor is doing her job, you don't notice. To a normal fan, who edited a book is completely invisible. Because of this, this award tends to be based off of industry ...

A couple of updates
First, I will once more be a program participant at Farpoint in February. It's going to be at the Hunt Valley Labyrinth...uh, I mean Inn...again. (I don't hate the Hunt Valley, but anyone who's stayed there will understand). Second, I've signed the contract...

Happy 4th of July
Not much time to post today with the holiday. I'm just going to post my wishes for this country - may it become stronger, more free, and more united. Let's have more of a reason to celebrate next year and moving forward.

...planet! Astronomers appear to have imaged the birth of a planet for the first time. We're getting there. Of course, it's a pretty big planet, perhaps a neo-Jupiter. But PDS 70b, as it's called (no fancy names yet) was detected by the Very Large Telescope...

Hugo Thoughts: Best Novelette
I was kind of underwhelmed by the novelette offerings this year. None of the six blew me away and it was hard to choose a winner. A Series of Steaks by Vina Jie-Min - I do like a good caper, and this was definitely a good caper, but I didn't quite understan...
