  • Commented on Three pieces of news about the Laundry Files (UPDATED!)
    In general I am right with you in "author=[Stross | Stephenson]" stakes, except ... I couldn't finish SevenEves. To my great unhappiness, as I generally inhale Stephenson books in their entirety. I have yet to read a Stross book that...

  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    I'd guess we'd still get a go in the Euro-vision, after all Israel and Australia, and various east-side-of-the-continent places participate and they're not in the EU, or (some) in Europe. I'd strongly expect many, many "null point", however....

  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    I'm pretty much agnostic, married to someone who is about to undergo baptist Minister-in-Training. I volunteer at a nearby church, because they run a homeless night shelter when temperature drops below freezing, and they run a weekly homeless drop-in so...

  • Commented on Lessons learned: writing really long fiction
    (Yes, I study how genres other than the one I work in are constructed.) Charlie, (or anyone else), I don't think I've ever really read anything much in the romance genre, I think I got put off seeing the be-sequinned...

  • Commented on Deaths and Deadlines
    Yes, but the problem with a Grand Design house is that 12 months later you have a kid - Kevin has knocked your missus up. Also, *every* GD I have ever seen (and I have watched a lot of them)...

  • Commented on Brexit! Means! Brexit!
    Whitroth @423 : don't know if you've listened to any recent UK folk, but I find myself *really* liking the Young 'Uns - folk songs about the 20th century, about decent people doing the decent thing. Highly recommended....

    Have you tried Pogues whiskey ? https://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/p/30626/the-pogues-irish-whiskey I'm really not one for Irish, I'm more of a GlenMorangie fan (and I can't afford to even taste the higher end whiskies), but the Pogues stuff I found very smooth indeed. I'd...
