An Hour With Harriet

2012-04-30: I had the great pleasure of speaking with Harriet McDougal Rigney about her life. She's an amazing talent and person and it will take you less than an hour to agree.

The Bell Tolls

2012-04-24: Some thoughts I had during JordanCon4 and the upcoming conclusion of "The Wheel of Time."

Ok, I see now that I unwittingly waded into an idiotic discussion and that your statement makes some sense in that context, but even then you're still wrong, because Japan formally declared war on...

Common misconception. The Tripartite Pact did not obligate Germany to aid Japan unless Japan were attacked. It's therefore not entirely clear why Hitler decided to declare war on the United States...

I started reading science stuff. I was rather into astronomy when I was a kid (alas, I couldn't figure out the math, so I became an historian). Then I got very interested in the Icelandic sagas, and...

This is, of course, very true, and anyone who knows me knows that I have little love for the state and its accumulation of impersonal power. Yet, individuals cannot confront either the state or...

I've also read a number of Tom Holt's novels, but I've found him a bit uneven. Some of them I've liked a lot--I thought Flying Dutch was very clever--others, not so much. I recently picked up Mark...

Not familiar with the Riftwar Saga, but I suppose I'll have to look into it now. I appreciated that Lynch actually has a sense of humour without being farcical, which is rather rare in this genre.

To tell you the truth, though, I'm getting tired of seeing Martin's books getting the place of honour in every single bookstore I enter (at least in the fantasy/sci-fi section). They're ok, but just...

Yeah, Patterson comes to mind. And Thomas Clancy. Those books only exist in airports. Possibly they spontaneously generate there.

There's an entire genre of books that is only published for sale at airports, I strongly suspect.

Then we can change the structure and get new moderators if they're not up to the job. That is not a problem.

I suppose this works, but one forum might be worth considering at some point. That's how our layout used to be, after all, and I don't think it was that difficult to deal with. It should be possible...

Well, so-called hot Jupiters are very common in other star systems, I believe, so there's no rule that says that they have to be far from their star. I think they've even detected a few that are...
