  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    Unfortunately, AFAIK, MEPs can't help in either case: both a revocation of art. 50 OR a 2nd referendum must come from the HoC. I'm hoping the pause helps Parliament realize that there are only two routes to Brexit: the WA...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    This clip looks almost prescient, as a metaphor for the Brexit attempts so far!...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    Since rationality hasn't provided the MPs with an answer, maybe the UK could turn to religion for guidance. I mean, the Catolic church has a most interesting protocol for making sure a new Pope is chosen in a timely manner!...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    Well, it seems Mrs. Cooper's bill won't be all that helpful, even if it passes. Ordering the govt to seek further delays requires the UE to comply, which is far from certain, specially without a clear purpose. However, if it...
  • Commented on Three pieces of news about the Laundry Files (UPDATED!)
    Excellent news all around!! Congratulations!! The Laundry Files started me on your books, which in turn presented me to the Merchant Princes series, that rock no end!! That been said, I miss pre-EoS Bob a little......
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    They really need some shaking up to reality, or at least to the realities of the situation. Worst of all, they are conflating the future relationship with the decisions about leaving, not helping to focus minds. The UE cannot, by...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    The ECJ ruled that the UK may revoke art. 50 unilaterally, but that revocation must be "unequivocal", not merely as part of a delaying strategy. So it'd probably require passing in both Houses... where "" to anything seems in short...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    Well, Parliament is at least being consistent: after 9 noes (8 Wednesday and one today), all that's left is "NO deal" or "NO Brexit"!...
  • Commented on Typo Hunt: The Labyrinth Index
    So you probably have the UK (Orbit) edition, right? I have the Tor (US) edition. As OGH explained in #5, the book is first edited by Tor and an EPUB generated; afterwards the EPUB from Orbit is generated separately. Guess...
  • Commented on Typo Hunt: The Labyrinth Index
    s/hifens/hyphens, sorry about my multilingual autocorrect!...
  • Commented on Typo Hunt: The Labyrinth Index
    Interesting, I have no missing hifens in my Tor copy. Both instances of the description of the engagement ring are ok, although the last one reads "diamond-and-emerald"....
  • Commented on Typo Hunt: The Labyrinth Index
    I'm sorry if I'm veering off-topic, but just noticed that in Chapter 3, when Mhari and Derek go to Camp Tolkien, Captain Perceval says he'll be outside (20% into the Chapter, page 11 of 49), turns and leaves, locking the...
  • Commented on Typo Hunt: The Labyrinth Index
    Also not exactly a typo, but there are at least two instances of missing space after a period: at 91% (page 40 of 44), in Chapter 2 (Morning in America): He cleared his throat diplomatically."Problematic. To say the least." -...
  • Commented on Typo Hunt: The Labyrinth Index
    In Slide 13 of the same presentation, "Enabling Act to permit conscription of any necessary resources" appears twice! BTW, 10^9 shows correctly on my Kobo Aura One....
  • Commented on Upcoming Appearances
    Congratulations to OGH for another winning bid in the SF table: appearing in an Wild Cards anthology!! I'm not a fan of the series, read just the first book (received as a gift), but I'll gladly buy this special "British"...
  • Commented on New publication dates (and audiobook news)
    Excellent! Must say reading about the Laundryverse on Halloween makes a lot of sense to me!...
  • Commented on Why I barely read SF these days
    Sorry to be late for the discussion (created an account just for this post), but is OGH familiar with the work of Mr. Cixin Liu? His stories seen to be centered exactly around the societal changes brought about by SF...
