  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    Just looked at your Twitter. Happy Birthday!...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday and getting you to sign my very own copy of The Labyrinth Index. How many books is it polite to ask you to sign?...
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    I had so many of those books when I was a kid. Of course, when I was a kid, I could only see Doctors Three & Four, playing on a months-long loop on TVO, my local public broadcaster. When they...

    Something worse than Daleks: possibly on the order of Cybermen. Not... not... Teletubbies?!?!?!!!!!!!!!111one!!...
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    Moderators: please remove if this is too Usaian-centred. Harry Turtledove's quoted Rabbi Jill Jacobs on Twitter yesterday: "There were four judges in Sodom and they were named for their actions: Shakrai, meaning liar, and Shakrurai, habitual liar, Zayfai, forger, and...

    the Alfär Magi, one of whom is a significant character who appears later in the novel. The Magi should get along with the Mandate like a house on fire - lots of screaming and property damage, inflicted on others, of...

    Well, BLUE HADES presumably got through their own version of Case Nightmare Green, as did the dwellers in the mantle (whose name escapes me at the moment). So CNG is theoretically survivable. The question of course is: let's say that...

    That's what keeps Charlie from writing 3 books a year - he has to go through a portal and help crew the ship Night Spire....
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    For a good commentary / response to The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath, you could do worse than The Dream-Quest of Vellitt Boe, by Kij Johnson. Asking questions like "where are the women? the people of colour?" etc....
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    As a special short-notice extra I'll be in Toronto, reading and signing early copies(!) at Bakka-Phoenix Books on October 20th — a sneak hyper-local early launch, if you like. ZOMGWTFBBQ! Huzzah! I'll be there! What time? Or is that TBD?...
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    Sorry, Hinduism, Sikhism and Judaism all drop two places each....
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    According to Wikipedia, Hinduism is #3, but is not Abrahamic. Sikhism is #4, with Judaism at #5. If you include "no religion" or "religion not stated", then those are #2 and #3, respectively, while Sikhism and Judaism drop two places...
  • Commented on Upcoming Appearances
    Something amusing - for some values of amusing - from Charlie's Twitter: on Urban Dictionary some people are trying to change the slang definition of 'gammon' to be 'wicked shouty white left-wing liberals'. Not sure what brought about this manifestation...
  • Commented on "I doubt me an it be commercial."
    (Dog Latin alert): Bonum Dei, homo! Don't you know how expensive paper is?!?! [And more humourous culture shock stuff]. One thing (among many) I liked about Under One Banner: we got the main character studying a pre-Commonweal tongue. I know...
  • Commented on Upcoming Appearances
    TO-RON-TO! TO-RON-TO! TO-RON-TO! TO-RON-TO! Toronto sounds like a good place to visit....
  • Commented on Taxonomy of story, or, why murder?
    Don't wait to do these things or you could wind up like some people in Texas. Born in the USA, raised in the USA, no citizenship elsewhere, apply for a passport and suddenly... "Sorry! I (racist immigration officer) don't think...
  • Commented on Dread of Heinleinism
    True! My headcanon is now that GRIMES, the Mad Maths Master is simply Charlie's Angleton learning how to be human. I know that it's a generation or two late, but: headcanon! Also, re: the many comments on Starship Troopers the...
  • Commented on Taxonomy of story, or, why murder?
    I just finished and enjoyed Under One Banner. The bits at the end where "maybe we should start thinking about what happens if we run into competent opposition" were frightening and thought-provoking. I'm now working on Cory Doctorow's Walkaway, which...
  • Commented on Sitrep
    Humans will screw sheep. In book 3 of Empire Games, Charlie has the ~USA finding a couple of worlds where Neanderthals / Denisovans are the dominant species of genus Homo. One of the 'B' plots is a touching love triangle...
  • Commented on Sitrep
    Biden will be 77 in 2020 and 81 in 2024. Sanders will be 76 in 2020 and 80 in 2024. It would be truly awesome if whoever is elected in 2020 was born on August 9, 1974-- the date Nixon...
  • Commented on Sitrep
    This would be quite useful in court cases. DEFENSE: Your Honour, my client's name is Greg Tingey. The first principle of all law texts and cases is that no-one with such a name can be convicted of any crime. In...
  • Commented on Sitrep
    Yes, that's the same guy....
  • Commented on Sitrep
    The book is All Those Explosions Were Someone Else’s Fault (link to a review of the book - OGH occasionally comments on that blog, for the extra cyber-stalky goodness)....
  • Commented on Sitrep
    Events? Probably not. Locations? Yep. If you look at Google Maps, immediately north of the city of ... well, you know ... is a garbage dump. Which provides the location of the Act 3 action. It's been too long since...

    Would this be The Road to Unfreedom? I read his On Tyranny and enjoyed it....
  • Commented on Sitrep
    Charlie's muse was sent over by the Oglaf team. (Image mostly SFW - contains nothing that a baby hasn't seen close-up)....
  • Commented on That sinking feeling
    Perhaps the NZ population should put some special lampposts close to these survivalist compounds. The lampposts can even be named after the rich arseholes, so that people will know who to hang from which when 'the Event' comes....
  • Commented on That sinking feeling
    If you're interested in fossils from the Devonian, Rock Glen Conservation Area is one of the best places in the world to find Devonian fossils. Bring your camera for that one - it's very scenic. If you're interested in mead,...
  • Commented on That sinking feeling
    Now landsmen all, whoever you may be, If you want to rise to the top of the tree, If your soul isn't fettered to an office stool, Be careful to be guided by this golden rule. Stick close to your...
  • Commented on That sinking feeling
    You can see a similar rig at the Petrolia Oil Museum. Petrolia, ON was one of the first places in the world that they drilled for oil. Lambton Museums use this rig for the tourists these days. Apparently, they get...
