  • Commented on The present in deep history
    Traditionally one has head-mounted lasers and the other is distracted by them, The kitty apocalypse can be foiled by laser pointers....
  • Commented on The present in deep history
    Regarding genengineered miniature dinosaurs, I wonder what happens if you make something with the intelligence and inquisitiveness of a Kea (a NZ parrot) with arms, or at least clawed wings - see numerous youtube vids of them dealing to cars,...
  • Commented on Not-so-Invisible Ninjas
    Since comments here seem to have died, and thinking about the retro-Hugo awards next year, for 1940. My knowledge of fandom for that era is pretty much limited to recognising the names of men who were, or became, authors, or...
  • Commented on How I learned to stop worrying and love the concept of punitive slating....
    I took a generous view when voting this year. 'No award' was top in some categories, and not in others. I tried to read, or at least skim, all works nominated, and didn't cast a vote for the Campbell's because...
  • Commented on New guest blogger: Fran Wilde
    My immediate thought on seeing the subject line was "a (former) NZ cabinet minister is into SF???", before I realised it was a different person of the same name....

  • Commented on Where Have All the Women Gone?
    To Liz Williams - The wikipedia category pages for SF writers in the British Isles seem to need a bit of work. You're listed under English writers, Tanith Lee is on the British writers page. More writers are listed as...
  • Commented on Two Thoughts
    I found a reference to 'pea nut gallery' in the 28 June 1869 Brooklyn Daily Eagle newspaper: 'The Concert of Saturday was a fitting close to the first season of those eminently successful entertainments, the like of which in all...
  • Commented on That "Annihilation Score" spoiler thread you're all asking for
    Regarding rooms, the only thing I can say is that as an antipodean used to an ... inventive... use of the phrase 'double bedroom' in flatting terms, I was still gobsmacked by what could be called a bedroom when I...
