  • Commented on Holding pattern
    FYI, if you can't wait for more Stross, WIRED.com has an audio interview with OGH up now, titled "This Sci-Fi Author Thinks Amazon Will Cause an Apocalypse" The interviewer isn't the liveliest, and there's a bit of a spoiler about...
  • Commented on One week to go to THE RHESUS CHART
    FYI, for cheapskates like me, Neptune's Brood came out in paperback the other day (the 24th?), so the Kindle price (and presumably other e-formats if you want to avoid the Evil Empire) has now dropped....
  • Commented on World Cup: engage Grinch mode now!
    Sure, the tribalism inherent in organized sports, especially soccer/football (Australia and the USA not withstanding), is probably very irritating to the non sports-lover. But the alternative outlet for these tribal urges (in our DNA? social subconsciousness?) might be, well, actual...
  • Commented on Vacation
    So you're not a big soccer fan. Did not know that :) Anyhow, after checking your travel dates more carefully, it seems that the vile exercise will already be well underway by the time you arrive in Florida, and the...
  • Commented on Vacation
    I hear the Japanese soccer team is in Tampa right now (at the Yankees' spring training facility possibly?). There might be some other teams in the state as well, getting acclimated to the heat/time-zone/mosquitoes/T-backs/relative-danger-level/etc.( :P ). If you do a...
  • Commented on On Syria
    I think part of the problem is that the enforcement of international norms and rules has been left to the USA, a country which has pretty much worn out its welcome and lost most of its moral standing recently. Remember...
  • Commented on On Syria
    If you want to get to that world without violence (or at least a world where dictators, presidents, and prime ministers don hauberk and lead their troops personally into battle, sword and shield in hand - I like it!), how...
  • Commented on On Syria
    How do people here compare the use of chemical weapons with other controversial, non-WMD weapon types, for example land mines? There has long been an international campaign to ban the use of anti-personnel mines and cluster munitions (The International Campaign...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Saturn's Children
    "Why go to the expense of developing robots when you can simply hire people to do the job for less?" Because you're filthy rich and can afford 99.99% realistic robo-sex/companionship, while simultaniously avoiding disease, paparazzi, police, crazy pimps, etc... PS...
  • Commented on Blogging for Orbit
    Ha! Thought that said "Blogging FROM Orbit" at first......
  • Commented on We interrupt this broadcast ...
    Oops, forgot to mention those prices were at the aforementioned "river people" site......
  • Commented on We interrupt this broadcast ...
    I see that The Apocalypse Codex is now out in paperback in the US as well - you might want to inform your more tightfisted fans that they can now pick that up for $7.19 (10% off!), or $7.99 for...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Glasshouse
    Ach. Looks like I need to read Glasshouse again. Too bad my paper copy is long gone. I know! I think it's time for Charlie to submit to the Beast from Seattle, and offer up Glasshouse as a Daily Deal....
  • Commented on Minor hiccup
    Interesting! So for you, how do stories that start as one-offs transition into something more, beyond what you've already alluded to above ("New ideas occurred to me and got woven into the short novel as I went along")? Did any...
  • Commented on Minor hiccup
    Here's my query for Mr. Stross: I was wondering how much of the background to the Laundry-verse you had already had in mind when you wrote TAA. After reading the later books, especially The Jennifer Morgue, I couldn't help but...
  • Commented on Why I don't self-publish
    I think a lot of people adamantly pushing some kind of new publishing paradigm are not necessarily would-be writers, but are perhaps techno-fantasists. And unlike regular, garden-variety fantasists (who wish they could live in Middle Earth or Westeros, God knows...
  • Commented on The Algebraic Properties of Equality in SF
    Molotov Cocktease (Does "The Venture Brothers" count as SF?). She's skilled at combat (even though she lacks depth perception), has an extremely high pain threshold, and could undoubtedly throw a grena..., uh, a fist size object a considerable distance. She...
