  • Commented on Announcing UK Audiobook Titles

  • Commented on Announcing UK Audiobook Titles
    This is very good news. I love audio books for long car or train journeys and I thoroughly enjoyed the The Atrocity Archives and The Jennifer Morgue. I can remember exactly where I was heading north west on the A272...
  • Commented on Clickbait spasm: 14 gizmos I used in 2015
    A bit rude of me to comment without offering my list of 2015 toys. We replaced a 1989 Panasonic television (our only television) with a Samsung UE40JU6400 LED 4K Ultra HD smart TV, 40" and, as one does, a week...

  • Commented on Data, books, and bias
    Leckie herself said "Breq herself, well, her gender is kind of complicated, isn't it. I mean, our culture, at least, mostly assigns gender by looking at genitals. But of course, One Esk will have had pretty much any and all...
