  • Commented on Book day!
    And I'm now strongly reminded of Octavia Butler. What's a better end in the Laundryverse: abhuman nightmares that remember being human and still have something of the cultures that spawned them, or actual humans ground down to near paste, with...
  • Commented on Book day!
    That's absolutely true, and I'm sure you've spent much more time than I have considering what 'continuity of self' means, in general and how it specifically applies here. Heck, Cassie's a perfect example of a composite personality with vastly different...
  • Commented on Book day!
    BTW, as someone who became a father for the first time in his early-to-mid 40s, a Bob & Mo cope with being parents unexpectedly late in their lives would be really entertaining, but given the world they live in, I'm...
  • Commented on Book day!
    Mo being maybe-pregnant (and yet undecided if she is or not) is interesting, because it neatly sidesteps one of my worries about why she might've survived (and why she might still be Mo instead of a strongly Mo-like entity). It...
  • Commented on Report on Seat 14C
    So far the only things I'm having trouble truly disbelieving are the pilot of the F15 not realizing that the 777 pilot is sun-dazzled, and that the remnants of the FAA (after the privatization/giveaway of ATC and most FAA facilities...
  • Commented on A taste of nightmares to come
    Cursing my travel schedule. This would've made perfect beach reading in Crete, and it's out a few weeks too late. Looks great though....
  • Commented on The Biggest Little SF Publisher you never heard of pulls on the jackboots
    I'm going to agree with David L. here. Jackson might've been effective at getting his policies accomplished, but many of his policies were particularly appalling. (I will, however, give him keeping the Union together during yet another of the myriad...
  • Commented on The Biggest Little SF Publisher you never heard of pulls on the jackboots
    That's a tricky formation. Turns out there’s a surprising number of presidents who held the rank of General, per Wikipedia: Arthur Eisenhower Garfield Grant Harrison, B. Harrison, W.H. Hayes Jackson Johnson Pierce Taylor Washington Presumably you're including Washington and Eisenhower....
  • Commented on The Biggest Little SF Publisher you never heard of pulls on the jackboots
    Having read both The Goblin Emperor and all of YAFGC (several times), they're almost nothing like one another, other than both delighting in using and abusing genre tropes. Beyond that, The Goblin Emperor reads like a very internal novel. There...
  • Commented on The Biggest Little SF Publisher you never heard of pulls on the jackboots
    I’m not going to try to translate the last post, but the overall tenor of CatinaDiamond’s posts are a combination a 90s Cypherpunk movement with the (ostensibly) more benevolent aspects of Anonymous and some implication of a Culture-style ‘we will...
