Getting Ready for Thursday's Reading
Now that school's out for the summer, I turn my attention to tomorrow's reading at the Woburn Public Library. In case you're interested, I'll be reading first (my friend Nick Mancuso will read later in the evening). At the moment I've got the two flash piec...

Plenty of excellent short fiction to praise from May. The stand-out for me was aquatic post-apocalyptic "For the Love of Sylvia City" by Andrea Pawley which appeared in Clarkesworld.  I also enjoyed work by CC Finlay and Cassandra Khaw.

Fallout 4
In terms of nerd culture moments, this year has already exceeded my wildest hopes. And then this morning happened. Fallout 3 is my favorite game of all time. So yeah, this game has big shoes to fill for me. That said, I'm incredibly excited for it. The grap...

What I Read in June
Another tough month to whittle my favorite stories to five or so I prefer for this column. In particular Nightmare and Clarkesworld offered several fine stories. The Wanderer, in the Dark of the Year by Kris Millering (Clarkesworld) Now this is why I read C...

Cyberpunk!
Way back in the 80s I'd treasure the few moments I could convince my parents to drive the 15 minutes or so to the local bookstore so I could slip to the back, find the science fiction section and read a few RPGs in the half hour or so it took them to circum...

What I Read in May
This list will be a bit longer than previous post if only because there was so much I read this month that really appealed to me. I think two or three of them were instant favorites for the year, but I’ll withhold judgement until a few months have passed. A...

I've been waiting for years for a place like this near my town. Great atmosphere, delicious strong coffee, and terrific baristas. Just in time for the summer!

I'd recommend because of the outdoor patio overlooking water street and the drinks. The food was basic, not bad but nothing to write home about.

Good food and efficient waiting staff. We went there on a Monday and encountered a pretty significant line. Portions are filling without being overwhelming.

I liked this place, good selection of books, especially the local interest section, and the cafe is spacious and yet somehow comfortable. This is the kind of place I wish my hometown had.

Decent selection of breakfast dishes. I ordered a French toast made out of blue corn which was two wedges of bread with apple syrup, delicious but not the biggest portion. My wife ordered a short stack of pancakes and was presented with something like the bottom two layers of a wedding cake.

Knowledgable and friendly owner pointed me in the direction of local artists. Good selection for a smaller store.

Cool spot to find southwestern jewelry, pottery, and craft items. Helpful staff, great prices, and nice quality.
