  • Commented on Down tools
    You might be surprised to learn that I was reading 2000AD in Malaysia(!), thanks to a friend who had more pocket money & would bring his 2000ADs to school to share (though most definitely not during lesson time). Then when...

    Trainspotter! *ducks*...
  • Commented on Rhesus Chart: blood dripping fresh ...
    Of course, given that OGH is a self-confessed teller of lies for money, YMMV....
  • Commented on Rhesus Chart: blood dripping fresh ...
    Hang about. Given that unreliable narrators is a recurring pattern in your stories, how do we know if Mo is any more reliable than Bob?...

  • Commented on Some news about the Hugo voters packet
    Serials are eminently doable & have a long history in many storytelling media. Granted it is a different mode of writing because parts are published before the whole story is complete, but there are a number of 'tricks' a writer...
  • Commented on Some news about the Hugo voters packet
    It has always been the case that it was up to the kindness of the publishers that nominated works were made available in the Hugo packet, and that there were never any guarantees. But it was one the positive aspects...
  • Commented on Checking in
    Congratulations Charlie! It's certainly an interesting ballot this year for many reasons....
  • Commented on "Write me something fresh and new, but make it just like the last one"
    You should hold off, let the pressure build, until eventually, you extrude diamonds. #Helping Actually, I generally find that the stories you're most enthusiastic about writing are the ones I enjoy most as reader; something of that energy comes through....
  • Commented on Dear Google, am I pregnant?
    Actually, we're a rather depressed nation. I have a certain expectation of privacy when it comes to my personal information and that includes medical details. I can see the benefits of mining a large dataset with the aim of improving...
  • Commented on Dear Google, am I pregnant?
    It was mock data after all?...

  • Commented on Rinse, Drain, Spin ... more Laundry!
    ... (2) I'm not going to tell you what it's about... Hmm, it's called "Equoid", and there is a horse with a horn on the cover. Nope, I've got nothing....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Apocalypse Codex
    Locations in New Zealand were used, so no surprise that the movie version of Barrow isn't much like the real one: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0389722/locations...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Apocalypse Codex
    So now that we are in CASE NIGHTMARE GREEN & bleakness increases, I am wondering about the end of the series: are you going to go all Peter Watts on us? (I'd actually prefer if you didn't answer that.)...
  • Commented on Another commercial ...
    Yeah, but he also suckers us into reading SF instead of Fantasy. *cough* Merchant Princes *cough*...
  • Commented on Another commercial ...
    Congratulations! I see that Jay Lake accepted the award on your behalf & in lieu of an acceptance speech did an interpretive dance. Video or it never happened....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Glasshouse
    I didn't know about the other meaning of Glasshouse either; the obvious one was apt enough that I didn't look beyond it. The thing it most reminded me of at the time was (rather unimaginatively) "The Prisoner" (the Patrick McGoohan...

  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Atrocity Archive(s)

  • Commented on "We're going to need book covers. Lots of book covers!"
    Intriguing article with picture links to the various covers to "Rapture of the Nerds" documenting the creative process to the final version. Some of the discards are very good too....
  • Commented on Off the Map: Women in Science and Science Fiction
    Change isn't instant. We're not there but we are trending that way (just take a look at the newly announced Hugo award nominees). Perhaps not as quickly as we should, but an awareness of our own biases is one of...
