  • Commented on The morning after
    Although I enjoy the drama, it is hard to see how this will be substantively important at any level. You're voting to transition from one liberal Western democratic country with a First World capitalistic economy to another, likely somewhat more...
  • Commented on The morning after
    Allow this cynic to answer one of your questions: no, they will not keep their promises....
  • Commented on Brooklyn, Beer 2.0, this Thursday
    Come to Decatur! (Small town within metro Atlanta - 5 miles east of mid/downtown). We have easy access via rail from the airport... and even have an awesome book festival. http://www.decaturbookfestival.com/Community/About-the-Festival/ I love NYC, but it's good to check out...
  • Commented on Brooklyn, Beer 2.0, this Thursday
    You ever come down to Atlanta? I mean, when we're not having an epic snow-wrought traffic crisis?...
  • Commented on I have a new book cover
    Just pre-ordered! Bummed that I won't get it for a year, though. The conundrum over pricing seems to me to reflect the concentration in the market. If there were a little more competition or some more easily evolving digital exchange...
  • Commented on Rinse, Drain, Spin ... more Laundry!
    Just pre-ordered it on Google Play. (I believe in actually paying for stuff. And $1.99 is like not even paying). Looking forward to reading it!...
  • Commented on Rinse, Drain, Spin ... more Laundry!
    Hi there -- will I find this in the Google Play store or should I fire up the ol' Kindle app? Also -- very pleased! Love that series. Thanks!...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Glasshouse
    Ah well -- I understand economics... but, as I've said before, Glasshouse is my most favorite of all of your novels. Of course, I like all the rest, too, so-- keep on keeping on, Charlie! (But I'd sure love to...
  • Commented on Thinking the unthinkable
    All right, I'll not take the bait. You're a very patriotic person. Wonderful. Just be aware that a number of groups around the world do not share your unmitigated appreciation for the miracle of British moral superiority and its governmental...
  • Commented on Thinking the unthinkable
    *1868 And we might have a bunch of tea party "patriots" but we don't have people screaming racist epithets at soccer games. So, you know. Pick your poison....
  • Commented on Thinking the unthinkable
    I'd point out that when the Constitution was adopted in 1787, screwed by the Triangle trade and slavery as it was, it was still far superior to the kings, queens, and princelings of Europe of the time. Plus, we hit...
  • Commented on Thinking the unthinkable
    I think the Anglosphere would have more to do with cultural and legal traditions than language, though language is clearly a prerequisite for it. That would rule out India, Pakistan and the secondary language speakers in Germany, France, China, Holland,...
  • Commented on Thinking the unthinkable
    Charlie: I agree with your central point but wanted to take a moment to note that your justification of the EU, in spite of corruption, anti-democratic nature, etc., would also fit perfectly into justification of the systems presently controlling Russia...
  • Commented on Thinking the unthinkable
    "[I]t seems quite similar to traditional Western models of ancestry-defined ethnic identities." Randy: It's not. Talk to a Chinese person about China for long enough-- and I mean a person actually born and raised in mainland China-- and you notice...
  • Commented on Thinking the unthinkable
    First - Charlie, I think you're being a bit alarmist. The recent troubles of a unified monetary system applied to a region as diverse as the EU have, I think, been comprehensively demonstrated over the last few years. Paul Krugman...
  • Commented on Understanding Reader Reviews
    Charlie: I think The Glasshouse is the book I have most enjoyed from you... I'd probably have given you 5/5 stars on Amazon, so, eh, I guess that's not helpful in an absolute sense. Not taking your post for an...
  • Commented on I suck at New Year Resolutions
    Charlie: Thanks for the wonderful novels-- just read the latest Laundry Files... awesome. Great read, fun and thought-provoking as always. (And, a shout-out for the Glasshouse, one of the best books I have read in a long, long time, and...
