  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    JBS @ 154: The same thing happened to me in the early '80s. I literally went from being in a remedial class to "gifted" in the space of two years....
  • Commented on On inappropriate reactions to COVID19
    This thread is too long and I'm too tired to go through the whole thing, but... Any rational response to COVID in the US (and the UK, more or less) was doomed to failure as soon as our not-so-glorious former...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Dead Lies Dreaming
    Legba is easy. A nice sweet cup of coffee, and he gets all chatty. Now the Guede loa, they can be tricky. The Baron is pretty finicky about his rum....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Dead Lies Dreaming
    Execute Red Triangle Protocol! Remember the White Flame!...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Dead Lies Dreaming
    To paraphrase a classic: '…don't you try to outweird me, I get stranger things than you free with my breakfast cereal.'...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Dead Lies Dreaming
    I work for a corporation. My Mind was Done YEARS ago....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Dead Lies Dreaming
    If you're simping for Baddiel when Rashford is in play, you're basically Telegraph / Times (UK media) fodder. I'm tired enough that the only response I have for this sentence is "Mornington Crescent"....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Dead Lies Dreaming
    Oh yes. Here's an example from a reputable source: https://www.tor.com/2009/10/19/there-is-totally-punk-in-steampunk/...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Dead Lies Dreaming
    Yeah, I learned about the color thing after the fact. Personally, I always preferred a variation: "Steampunk is what happens when Goths discover shiny." :D...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Dead Lies Dreaming
    Brendan: As someone who was fairly involved in US steampunk fandom at one point, I can speak on this. At its peak, there were (and probably still are... I GAFIAted a few years back) two main camps of Steampunk fans....
  • Commented on Because I am bored ...
    Bit of a mixed bag, but hey... double dose next winter! I saw that the sequel had to be renamed on your Twitter. Any word on the title for book 3?...
  • Commented on Because I am bored ...
    Hey GH, I received a mail this morning that Escape from Puroland has been delayed at Amazon to next March. Is this expected? (I have a sadness, because I was eagerly awaiting my Bob/Laundry fix.)...
  • Commented on A Quick Infomercial
    In Japan, the draw is about as big as an amusement park dedicated to a mouse in Florida... Seriously... Sanrio is HUGE over there....
  • Commented on A Quick Infomercial
    Random trivia that it may be too late to incorporate: "Kitty White" (Hello Kitty's "real name") is supposed to be British......
  • Commented on A Quick Infomercial
    So, basically: "Handmaid's Tale: The Amusement Park" Which I can only assume would be followed by "Handmaid's Tale: The Flamethrower"...
  • Commented on A Quick Infomercial
    Found it: "The Valkyrie Confession" But you also said you might not write that one......
  • Commented on A Quick Infomercial
    Sign me up! I take it the other novella is the oft-mentioned "Derek the DM" tale? (My feelings are more ambivalent about the upcoming end to the Laundry-centric arc, but I can understand the need. I vaguely recall you mentioning...
  • Commented on Upcoming Attractions!
    I still buy the occasion *back, but I've been strongly considering going eBook for the future. For various reasons (mainly, e-ink technology drives me nuts) I've been looking at the Amazon ecosystem. Probably a Fire, but it's very difficult to...
  • Commented on Upcoming Attractions!
    "That's no moon"... Regarding messing with DMs... I was in a D&D game at a con where the characters were premade, and I ended up playing the party magic-user. I was able to beseige a castle single-handedly with two spells...
  • Commented on The Laundry Files: an updated chronology
    It is relevant, I think, that the epilogue to "The Last Wendy" is quite close to the dialogue & action from the original story (which I found on Project Gutenberg): His sobs woke Wendy, and she sat up in bed....
  • Commented on Upcoming Attractions!
    Daylight Savings Time ends at 2:00 AM on Sunday, November 1 in the US, and at 2:00 AM on Sunday, October 25 in the UK....
  • Commented on The Laundry Files: an updated chronology
    Regarding souls and the existence thereof, I once came across a lovely line that I don't necessarily _believe_, but certainly like the sound of: “You don't have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body."...
  • Commented on The Laundry Files: an updated chronology
    I can't be the only one here who sort of wants to see what a super-deformed Laundry series would look like. I mean, other than Haiyore! Nyaruko-san....
  • Commented on All Glory to the New Management!
    The ASHPD is fun, but I'm holding out for Boom Tubes. *ping*...
  • Commented on Introducing a new guest blogger: Sheila Williams
    @OGH: Prediction: internet downloads galvanized the audiobook market because drivers can "read" them at the wheel. But COVID19 work-from-home patterns are going to chew into the commuter market, which in turn is going to hit audiobook sales if the trend...
  • Commented on All Glory to the New Management!
    So they HAVE to vote for the dead guy if he's the one named? In a strict interpretation of the laws of 33 states (and the District of Columbia) yes. Of course, the states could waive the penalties in this...
  • Commented on All Glory to the New Management!
    That's why I said "short form". There are a lot of exceptions, especially since you technically aren't voting for candidates but electors, and in some states the electors HAVE to vote for the candidate named on the ballot, no matter...
  • Commented on All Glory to the New Management!
    Short form: The RNC picks the new slate. They would likely pick Pence and a new VP. There won't be a new convention. As for the ballots, they would not change. It's far too late to print up new ones...
  • Commented on Introducing a new guest blogger: Sheila Williams
    Welcome to the madness, Ms. Williams. RE: the Dark Morris https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jL6jR0JbRA...
  • Commented on All Glory to the New Management!
    …he gets forced off the campaign trail with light symptoms for two weeks, then comes roaring (and coughing) back, bragging about how he beat the stupid disease and it's no big deal. Of course, even recovered cases have shown...
