  • Commented on Empire Games
    Slightly off-topic, but maybe relevant to characters in Empire Games (and pre-emptive spoiler warning for anyone who hasn't read the first 6/3): Charlie, I always felt I missed something in three readings of the series, with the transcripts of the...
  • Commented on "You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!" 2017 continued.
    “… a wall of water 40 metres high washes downstream and destroys Aleppo …” I mean I wouldn't put anything past 2017 after this year, but presuming that's Mosul?...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    eta: Still will buy, because Iain Banks! With or without M. I've re-read him many times and very few of his works don't reward at least second readings. And it's surprising how infrequently works like A Song of Stone or...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    "The Culture Series of Iain M. Banks: A Critical Introduction by Simone Caroti…" I hadn't heard of this. A while ago I read The Transgressive Iain Banks: Essays on a Writer Beyond Borders edited by Martyn Colebrook, Katharine Cox and...
  • Commented on What are you reading this summer?
    The Nightmare Stacks! Because summer = Stross. Christian Materiality: An Essay on Religion in Late Medieval Europe by Caroline Walker Bynum, my favourite medieval historian, I've been working my way through her exceptional works for the last couple of years....
  • Commented on Nightmare Stacks competition results ...
    Iron Sunrise for the win!...
  • Commented on Not-so-Invisible Ninjas
    And there's even “An award encouraging the exploration & expansion of gender," now in its 25th year where many of these writers have appeared: The James Tiptree, Jr. Literary Award. (And recommendations are open for the 2015 award.)...
  • Commented on Book Launch
    Saint George's English Bookshop in Wörtherstr, Prenzlauer Berg. You can email them, ask to preorder and they'll let you know. Generally for new/pre-orders they get it on the day or occasionally a day or two earlier. (Also generally a really...
  • Commented on In Defense of Fantasy: #2 The Imagination's Sandbox
    Only commenting to say, Oglaf! (& cum sprites, cold-proof vibrators, magical talking bear prostitutes … Blood and Thunder! Victory at Sea!)...
  • Commented on A major ebook announcement
    Fuck yes! Needs one more option after Filthy: Australian!. "Aw fuckin', my dear fuckin' Holmes," I fuckin' said, "fuck me this is fuckin' too fuckin' much, ya fuckin' cunt."...
  • Commented on Oh dear
    There's also the Gedenkstätte Berlin-Hohenschönhausen and the Militär Historisches Museum that might be useful, Berlin loves its museums: http://www.museumsportal-berlin.de/en. And for the third time I leave a city right when you arrive....
  • Commented on A message from our sponsors
    Pre-ordered from Saint George's in Berlin, (who don't use Amazon). Completely off-topic, I'm half-way through Revolution Trade (first reading of the omnibus and third reading of the whole series), and still have no idea who some of the people are...
  • Commented on The myth of heroism
    I'm not sure they are exactly TV shows in the traditional sense, given that the ability to download and watch whole seasons in a single go (as distinct from the months or years later DVD releases) seems to have led...
  • Commented on The myth of heroism
    Saladin Ahmed's tweeting of his Comics Code research over the last couple of months is one of the best things I've read in a long time. I was wondering if you've seen Orphan Black? It's definitely making reference to superheroes...
  • Commented on Time tourism
    Charlie, yes I am....
  • Commented on Time tourism
    And how many western women of today would be comfortable vacationing in contemporary Iran? Not that I do tourism and almost all my 'vacations' are extra days wherever I happen to be at the end of projects, but I feel...
  • Commented on Off the Map: Women in Science and Science Fiction
    At the risk of sounding like a troll, I found the two Implicit Bias tests I did (Gay/Straight, & Gender) have their own biases. Both exclude trans/intersex people, assuming both the identities referred to in the tests and that of...
  • Commented on This explains everything
    We will commence with the question: does steak love lettuce? This question is implacably hard and inevitably difficult to answer. I know it's only a chatbot, but, wow … it's like reading Wittgenstein; the uncanny valley of philosophy;...
  • Commented on Big Guns[1]
    if you have a penis, you are at most a bank account and sperm donor for women. The victory of third wave feminism in action. That's some pretty despicable misogyny. And 12 comments later no one else has apparently noticed....
