  • Commented on Report on Seat 14C
    I watched some Cagney and Lacey reruns last year (that's a American police show from the 1980s). Every other episode it seemed that they had to go looking for a pay phone. I found myself yelling at them - "Why...
  • Commented on Attention Conservation Notice
    I can't imagine waiting for all three books - what if something happened to Charlie? I immediately bought Empire Games last January, and read it avidly. I was thrilled yesterday to get a promo from Amazon for Deep State -...
  • Commented on The light at the end of the tunnel (is not necessarily an oncoming train)
    I have always wondered how the HMS Beagle, one of the most important ships in the history of the world, got named. Was she named for a kind of dog, or somebody famous, or what?...
  • Commented on The End of the British nuclear deterrent?
    Thanks, Guthrie. Although I would think the Eschaton could do more than one thing at the same time....
  • Commented on The End of the British nuclear deterrent?
    I'm going to bring up something way off topic, but I don't know what other blog I should be reading. I've just finished reading Iron Sunrise, and I stayed up past my usual bedtime to finish it. My questions are:...
  • Commented on The End of the British nuclear deterrent?
    Those figures are for countries, not governments. If California, Texas, and New York were included, Russia would drop to 16th. California would be sixth, just ahead of France. Texas would be just ahead of Canada, and New York just behind...
  • Commented on Placeholder? Placeholder!
    I've only been to Tokyo once - and you're right; I never dreamed those young ladies were part of security. But while waiting to leave Japan, I was called up for a security check, apparently at random. I had brought...
  • Commented on Placeholder? Placeholder!
    :95 You mean the scan for bombs, I hope. I've had two MRIs recently (very unpleasant, requiring staying immobile for 30 minutes). My doctor's MRI is in its own room, and I had to remove all items and leave them...
  • Commented on A Surfeit of Emeralds: Healthcare in the Middle Ages
    @40: Yes, in addition to McCoy of TOS, Dr. Bashir of DS9 and the holodoc of Voyager were also at best acerbic, and I can't remember who the doctor of Enterprise was. Only Dr. Crusher (the main TNG doctor) had...
  • Commented on Empire Games
    Another nit - if Rita's parents put her through college, why does she have outstanding student loans? Spoilers here ***********************8 And I don't see how the Stasi could have sleeper agents in the third generation. Regarding Charlie's comment about people...
  • Commented on Empire Games
    In the Principal Cast List, Elena Hjorth is listed as being married to Huw Hjorth, giving him wives. She's married to Hulius....
  • Commented on The dog ate my homework
    You're doing better than I am - I haven't received the Email. And it has nothing to do with the MLK holiday. I ordered another book at the same time, and it arrived on January 2....
  • Commented on The dog ate my homework
    I know that it's bad form to comment on books that others may not have read. Charlie, will you be starting a thread just for Empire Games? That would make it easier for those who haven't read it yet....
  • Commented on The dog ate my homework
    You have Empire Games? Wow! I ordered both Eric Flint's latest and EG from Barnes & Noble in November for January delivery. On January 2 (a holiday here) the Flint book arrived in my mailbox. It's a holiday today also,...
  • Commented on Things Can Only Get Better! (Part 1)
    I wonder if things will get so bad that California will try to secede. To put this into perspective, California has the sixth biggest economy in the world - bigger than France. The five leading industries in California are in...
  • Commented on Things Can Only Get Better! (Part 1)
    Your sixth point is wrong - if the 19th Amendment is repealed, the courts cannot declare anything pertaining to that as unconstitutional. The majority of people in the US are women, who are more likely to be Democratic than Republican,...
  • Commented on Empire Games sneak peek
    I've preordered on Barnes and Noble, and am counting down the days. I have an ethical problem now. I know how badly Amazon treats their employees and about their general rapaciousness. So I try to buy from Barnes and Noble...
  • Commented on Busy busy busy
    Pence won't start a nuclear war because some foreign leader insulted him. And he won't run his business on the side - I believe he's not a wealthy man. And he won't embarrass the US with his personal actions. However...
  • Commented on Busy busy busy
    Thanks - I'm a retired programmer, so I appreciate the analogy....
  • Commented on Busy busy busy
    Regarding "Eater of Souls". I can't find my copy of Fuller Memorandom, but I know that Iris tried to use Bob's body for the rite. And in Apocalypse Codex, Bob can control feeders. So, then there were two Eaters of...
  • Commented on Busy busy busy
    I've just finished rereading Annihilation Score. It's the first Laundry book that I've reread immediately, and the one I like the most. Perhaps that's just because I'm female. I think Mo and Bob really are deeply in love, and I...
