  • Commented on Sad Trombone Exoplanet Reality Check
    So long as it's not someone making microwave popcorn...again. Updated: 'Leaked' space signal report has SETI groups scrambling...

    Forget Proxima Centauri: An Interesting SETI Candidate in Hercules...
  • Commented on Sad Trombone Exoplanet Reality Check
    Again off-topic. Was just catching up on the Scrivener for iPad blog and came across this: Author Charlie Stross On Scrivener – And How The iOS Version Fits In. I'm still figuring it out--been busy with other things to give...
  • Commented on Sad Trombone Exoplanet Reality Check
    Yeah, just thought I'd ask. Saw that Tor.com disabled comments for their post on them....
  • Commented on Sad Trombone Exoplanet Reality Check
    Off-topic question: Can we expect blog post on last nights awards? I had forgotten all about them, so didn't watch. Sounds like Gaiman's and Cadigan's speeches were particularly worth seeing. Also agreeing with your tweets on the subject....
  • Commented on Reality is broken
    These stories was the first installment of the RPG "Forgotten Futures" by Marcus Rowland. And who occasionally comments here. I discovered Forgotten Futures by accident years ago, when googling George Griffith. Found a neat and useful site, shame I'm not...
  • Commented on Reality is broken
    I've been trying to think of what to call the mix of "Halting State" moments with "The Peripheral" we seem to be stuck in. I don't think we can expect help from another Stub....
  • Commented on Reality is broken
    ...or maybe CASE NIGHTMARE BLACK & WHITE & READ ALL OVER?...
  • Commented on Administrative note
    Looking back at the comments in that io9 link, the idea has occurred a couple times, at least. May have to start a collection, to go with my collection of golem stories....
  • Commented on Administrative note
    For those who haven't seen yet, a Lovecraft ABC book for the kiddies, free to download. Meanwhile, when exactly did Baen go all mil-SFF, with blah cover art? I have a few of their books from the 80s, Aldiss' "Hothouse"...
  • Commented on Administrative note
    That's pretty much what I figured. The incompatability problem is why I was thinking non-canonical, leaves it open for fudging, maybe go more for humor. And maybe you needed more beer? I really need to get around to reading Aaronovitch,...
  • Commented on Administrative note
    I saw the twitter exchange and knew it wasn't too serious, but it made me wonder about the possibility of co-written, non-canonical crossover short stories, rather than novels. Don't know if that would be any easier to manage. I suppose...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    I dunno, I saw a report the other day on what T.Rump wants to do to the internet. It instantly put me in mind of their story "Unwirer". I don't actually remember what the report said, but yesterday he said...
  • Commented on Administrative note
    So that's what happened. Wondered what was going on last night when the site wasn't loading....
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    Now that my brain is thoroughly melted I've started Jury Service by Cory Doctrow and some up and coming Scottish fellow, Or you coud read the whole book "Rapture of the Nerds"....
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    That last bit's meant as a reply to some other comments....
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    "Aye, Cap'n. I'll get me armour," he said dejectedly. "Again." Yep, that'll do. Certainly no reason Steampunk has to be alt-historical, why not a different world setting?...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    Yes. I assume you would do something New & Unusual with it....
  • Commented on Empire Games
    Also US preorder through Barnes & Noble: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/empire-games-charles-stross/1123683482?ean=9780765337566 Now in my wishlist....
  • Commented on A plaintive request
    I'm pretty sure he's claiming that Sharia supposedly gets a pass from Liberals, not WBC. Bullshit either way, and ignores that there are various schools of Sharia, some more liberal than others. Most of what gets called Sharia is actually...
  • Commented on Beer, San Francisco
    Okay, never mind--mostly, still wouldn't mind a review. Like Wilde said; "I can resist everything except temptation" All's well so far....
  • Commented on Beer, San Francisco
    While I'm thinking of it, Can we expect a review of Scrivener for iOS? I have a few questions (not that this is really the place to ask them), mainly if it will run on older iPads?...
  • Commented on Beer, San Francisco
    Since someone brought this up a little while ago, and hasn't anything to do with recent discussions, I'll leave this here. Is Reddit's Creepy '_9MOTHER9HORSE9EYES9' a Netflix Marketing Stunt?...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLOND
    That animation of the logo is excellent, though I think it could use some sound effect. Grunting to the rhythm perhaps....
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLOND
    Think Florida, only nastier. I try not to, I'm originally from Jacksonvile, but I assume you're referring to the nasty algae they're having now. ...close only counts in tactical nuclear weapons. I usually hear that as "Close only counts in...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLOND
    Charlie made a joke about CASE NIGHTMARE GAMMA RAY on twitter a few days ago. Ever since I've had the idea in my head of CASE NIGHTMARE CERENKOV BLUE; when alien followers of the Elder Gods zip in with their...
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    So, the GOP is allying itself with UKIP? Fanfuckingtastic. Key Brexit figure Farage to attend GOP convention...
  • Commented on We'll all go together when we go
    And a photo of the event from twitter....
  • Commented on The Nightmare Stacks: US Launch
    The mangled quote gets me around needing to shell out cash for a license to use the exact words. Sorry! I had that thought belatedly about the Bauhaus lyrics in the last book. Safer to mangle them somewhat than to...
  • Commented on The Nightmare Stacks: US Launch
    Just back from my local Barnes & Noble. Two copies on the shelf--now one, and they're also minus a copy of the new Yoon Ha Lee novel....
