  • Commented on Gods and genre
    I wonder if one possible reason sex is written in "hard SF" as Griffith describes isn't a function of a writer's experience/interest + self-awareness. To wit, you're told in classes to 'write what you know', but nobody really 'knows' things...
  • Commented on Spoiler Thread
    almost none of my friends read the Laundry books (not for lack of my trying) so yesterday I tried to pique/troll them by Facebooking that "If the Laundryverse was GoT, then The Rhesus Chart was our Red Wedding"....
  • Commented on Competition Time!
    Violated Section 63 (1)(b) of the 1994 Criminal Justice Act with a repetitive ostinato played during Lombardo's 3rd Rite....
  • Commented on Crass commercial interlude
    just ordered one of the shirts. god i hope this is prepping the world for a Laundry takeover of pop culture. i would love to be cheerfully complaining that whoever's playing Mo isn't tall or ginger enough....
  • Commented on What scared H. P. Lovecraft
    no disagreement about it being a great first contact novel. but again, my horror was the casual acceptance of life itself being made redundant not out in space with the scramblers, but back on Earth with Heaven and working professionals...
  • Commented on What scared H. P. Lovecraft
    Peter could never be so florid and purple! at least, *god* i hope he hasn't learned how in the last year anyways. someone pointed out how the humans of Blindsight have become supreme satisficiers*- that was one of the most...
  • Commented on Do Zimboes dream of Electric Sheep?
    Maybe though if zimboes are created, bespoke beings, then perhaps one could include the "self-critique.lib , actualized-self.lib". To wit, if your goal in a zimboe is more human than human, then a la Blade Runner you're going to give them...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Apocalypse Codex
    Indeed, when I read about that decision, Scalia was the first I thought of. But it would probably precede his appointment to the SCOTUS. I'm thinking Oliver Wendell "One generation of imbeciles is enough" Holmes could probably summon the misanthropy...
  • Commented on Another commercial ...
    oh man, if you're brainstorming with Peter Watts, then that's the hands down coolest thing i've heard all day. that's like a r/whowouldwin thread waiting to happen. (say...Blampires vs. The OPA's Nazgul) now i'm dreaming of a whole Laundryverse short...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Atrocity Archive(s)
    In your afterwords/acknowledgements, you've mentioned some authors like Len Deighton, Peter O'Donnell, and more recently tossed off a reference on Twitter to Cold Comfort Inn re: the new Laundry story. I would really like to see your recommended non-science fiction...
  • Commented on Project Stargate
    I'm glad for the introduction and am stoked to check out Tregillis' books, as I gobbled down Declare too quickly while waiting for Apocalypse Codex, and now it's a year until Rhesus Chart! Of all the many things I love...
