    I suggest the Queendom of Scotland, with the succession running Elizabeth → Anne → Zara → …...
  • Commented on Empire Games (and Merchant Princes): the inevitable spoiler thread!
    Three cheers for a sane, competent POTUS! And boo for underlings who think that destabilising the government of a nuclear power is how to avoid a nuclear war. Random question: what did our timeline's Bruce Schneier think about the Empire...

    Note: there's only one f in the word "Bahnhof"......
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    Last-minute guess: timeline 2 is infested with moles from higher-tech timelines as well as descendants of moles from defunct higher-tech timelines. Colonel Smith is one of the latter. He thinks Miriam is another one....
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    Yes, two of them. US edition: Sep 28; UK edition: Sep 30. Pick the earlier one or the cheaper one, according to your priorities. :-)...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares

  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19

    Expanded Universe isn't a reliable source. See The Nature of “Federal Service” in Robert A. Heinlein’s Starship Troopers (PDF, 128 KB)....
  • Commented on A death in the Firm
    I wonder what the Hackintosh community is going to do about Apple's switch to proprietary hardware? Those whose motivation is spiting Apple will no doubt try hard to run macOS on Raspberry Pis......
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    No seatbelt law discussion is complete without this classic Darwin Award winner being mentioned....
  • Commented on Dead Lies Dreaming: Spoilers
    But if you really want to disable someone and continue chatting, how about just heating the spinal cord between C4 and C5 for "instant quadraplegia"? Are you thinking of a certain Bujold novel? I certainly am....
  • Commented on Upcoming Attractions!
    I suggest a fifteen-year-old Readers's Digest volume....
  • Commented on Upcoming Attractions!
    What's wrong with DLD: too much drug use....
  • Commented on Dead plots
    Also busted: cops (not necessarily including forensics or detectives) as good guys. So if you have an existing good guy cop, you should arrange for a promotion to detective if you want to keep writing about them?...
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    I hope you remembered to explain why colonel Smith is acting so irresponsibly. Why does he think he's playing chess, and why does he think Miriam is his opponent?...
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    [disambiguation needed]Also, what era Norse? Most of the names that "Jack" can expand to would have arrived only with Christianity....

    All the banks moved to Tashbaan, though....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    Are there any sf stories featuring Leeds as the new capital of the UK after the destruction of London? On the other side of the pond, Denver sometimes gets to be the new capital of the USA....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Delirium Brief
    I'd like to ask if anybody else shared my reaction to the idiocy of shutting down the old organisation while its replacement was only in the planning stage: "None of the people in charge ever watched Ghostbusters?"...
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
    Probably. The djinn summoner in The Annihilation Score was named Anwar Kadir, which might be why it sounds familiar....
  • Commented on The Labyrinth Index: sneak preview!
