A spam botnet is torture-testing the server again, so I'm shutting down comments until it goes away.
Update Comments may be up or down depending on how irritating the spammers get. I just re-enabled them. (Load average on the server is currently 0.01. At the point when I disabled comments the load average was spiking towards 10. It's a roughly logarithmic indicator of how heavily the machine is loaded ...)
In other news: Over on SFSignal, here's a round table discussion on literary and speculative fiction by me, Elizabeth Bear, Bradley Beaulieu, and Rob Ziegler. Lots of chewy opinions here. (And yes, I had a brain fart and confuse "Stand on Zanzibar" with "The Shockwave Rider", and nobody caught it before publication.)
