  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    The sequel is just as deranged. It riffs off the whole hollow earth and lizards masquerading as people nonsense. There is also an amusing sub-plot about a cult of apple tech users that, literally, worship Steve Jobs. But I would...
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    With all due respect. If you don't like someone's conversation then don't talk to them. Telling other people not to talk, when they are plainly enjoying the exchange, is more than a tad out of line....
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    Greg, Hindus are not polytheists. As I understand it from conversation with Hindu colleagues the orthodox position is that the various Hindu gods are aspects of one god. It's much the same as the Christian concept of the trinity....
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    I take your point. But, how much genuine attraction would there be across species lines? As opposed to people of different ethnicity who are, for all of that, the same species....
  • Commented on The Laundry Files: an updated chronology
    So, I own all of the above currently in print and am looking forward to reading the rest of them. I'm not sure about the end of the Laundry part of the arc because I've grown invested in most of...
  • Commented on "I doubt me an it be commercial."
    I liked your stuff Graydon for the novelty and the characters you came to care about. Even the nameless grunts who end up in the standard. Even Halt gods help me! I liked the wizard school stuff because they really...
  • Commented on Why I barely read SF these days
    In a similar context. I play EVE Online. If not using voice comms all inter-player communication is done via text chat. Sometimes you want to speed what you type so that you aren't focussing on that for too long and...
  • Commented on Why I barely read SF these days
    It is true that David Weber is mostly concerned at the start of the series with concocting a reason to have Napoleonic naval battles in space (and then later carrier battles). However, he did carefully construct his setup of the...
  • Commented on We get reviews (contd.)
    I've just bought the series up to Empire Games on the UK's branch of the Big River. RPG-wise I'd be inclined to see how well the setting matched up with the Luther Arkwright game. Or, for that matter, the Arkwright...
  • Commented on A bright and shiny hell
    Thing is. The story I have heard is that the Taliban didn't tell the US to "poke off." Rather they asked for a minimal amount of evidence in order to justify extradition. I don't have a source for that however....
  • Commented on We get mail (contd.)
    Also, later parts of The Expanse series mention Belter women (who spend large parts of their lives in zero-G) going to the agri-dome settlement on Ganymede or the port city of Ceres when they become pregnant. As far as I...
  • Commented on In other news ...
    Charlie, did you and Dave ever get anywhere on that Laundry/Broom Cupboard (Hunter's Moon) short story? I'm suspecting not due to general pressure of work for both of you. Which is a pity really....
  • Commented on Suspense is the key
    Well the example that comes to mind here is someone I introduced you to. David Devereux and the opening scene of Hunter's Moon. That said he was going for literary Bond as a model so hardly surprising....
  • Commented on Constitutional crisis ahoy!
    In other news. Have you seen this Charlie? http://www.goominet.com/unspeakable-vault/vault/540/...
