  • Commented on Time tourism
    You should have at least mentioned Bloodline Feud, where the main character is a woman, who travels between worlds that are essentially in different time periods. I'm reading it right now in its new glory, and I'm having a blast....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Glasshouse
    Glasshouse might fail in the US because of its very crass anti-Christian tone, where the church is just a meeting ground for abuse, the pastor is a dictator and the nod to the ultra-sexist 1950's society. All completely true, but...
  • Commented on Crib sheet: Accelerando
    It makes complete sense to me that Accelerando took a long time to write. Of all the novels I've ever read, it's the most deserving of the label "Science Fiction", as it does start out very realistic, and while not...
  • Commented on Books I've written
    I care more about the books that made a comment about our actual world, or at least tried to. While I enjoyed Fuller Memorandum and so on a lot, they are not particularly special, or I missed that. It's a...
  • Commented on Grand Guignol Tropes
    I'm pretty sure a story with "Münchhausen-Syndrome by Proxy" and cancer medication writes itself. Heaps of brutal side-effects for the whole family, especially if you don't get to take the pills that help prevent the side-effects....
  • Commented on PSA: Ignore the news
    Nassim Nicholas Taleb (the Author of Black Swan, not the thing with Natalie Portman, but the book about statistics) said it too: Ignore the News. It's just a long list of depressing things and ignores all the good things that...
  • Commented on A message from our UK sponsors
    I don't mind the higher price, but I'm really not fond of hard-backs, especially the UK ones which are just over-sized paperbacks. When will we see a more carryable print?...
  • Commented on Why I don't self-publish
    I recently stumbled over this: http://www.perceptualedge.com/blog/?p=1521 He both self-published and wrote for O'Reilly, and was not amused. I wonder if non-fiction might be a different beast entirely: Because let's face it, your typical editor will have a very tough time...
  • Commented on Things publishers can't do (yet)
    Side-story for covers: When you order older books through Amazon of which there are more than one cover variant available, you sometimes don't get the one you expected. I have a weird assortment of Charlie's books in US and UK...
  • Commented on Science & Technology, Working Together
    I've always considered the first Jurassic Park to be a good novel, and all the people who have only seen the films have ridiculed me for it! I knew I was on the right track there! Quoting my Geographic teacher...
  • Commented on Things that keep me awake at night #1: The end of telephony
    I got rid of my landline phone because the only calls I got on it were telemarketers and my mother, whom I'm trying to teach to use Skype instead. My Internet is now via TV cable (which I also don't...
