  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    "what happened to all the quiverful true believers" To me, it doesn't even seem like that difficult of a question. In order to survive, these groups would eventually need to be wealthy enough to be completely self-sustaining with a wrecked...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    A rim-shot is the very-short "drum beats then cymbal" riff that is usually played to emphasize a punchline. I think it originated in mid-20th century TV shows, from when humor shows had a band in the studio. I don't know...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    It's a vote of publisher confidence that the New Management is getting a third volume, sight unseen, with only the first in print so far. I imagine that SoS got the go-ahead based on the strength of being a shared...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    Charlie, you're one of the few authors whom I pre-order new-release books for. How will the massive publishing supply-line issues I've heard about affect your books? Will pre-ordering obviate those issues?...
  • Commented on A Quick Infomercial
    JBS @ 29: So? You gonna' be near Tbilisi ... or Atlanta? Atlanta. I've lived in the same town in northern Florida for the past, um, 26 years. It's a big change for me....
  • Commented on A Quick Infomercial
    (c) the existence of Amazon and ebook channels have churned up the picture for short story collections as a viable medium That's terribly disappointing. Short stories anthologies are one of my favorite parts of science fiction. (d) all those stories...
  • Commented on A Quick Infomercial
    Once my imminent move to the middle of Georgia (*shudder*) and find a locally-owned bookstore, I'll get the novella pre-ordered. Hooray! Unless you say otherwise, I'll assume that the Laundry short story collection also come out in the US. Woo....
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    What is it with bleak steppes and wide-open deserts that attracts these things anyway? As I understand it, those places are free of habitation, so there's no danger of the sample hurting anyone or causing damage upon landing. Additionally, it's...
  • Commented on The Laundry Files: an updated chronology
    I can't remember! (This is an overhaul of an FAQ that dates back to 2011.) Totally off the top of my head, but I think it might be that the foe in Pimpf was slain by Angleton at the end...
  • Commented on The Laundry Files: an updated chronology
    BLUE HADES aren't crude tribal/ethnic stereotypes straight out of Lovecraft. (The original rule book is fine, it's the supplements that are dicey.) Thanks for the clarification! I hope to be able to run a Laundry RPG campaign at some point...
  • Commented on Roll the dice
    ... working in an ambient-pressure office environment (underground, safe from space radiation) and teleoperating drones and robot bodies on the surface. Imagine a workplace where everyone needs to work an 80 hour week, there are no vacations for the first...
  • Commented on Roll the dice
    Hi Charlie. While I haven't read every comment here, I didn't see a call to end submissions for a 5e D&D game for you, so I registered to comment. I've been a sporadic lurker for a long time. While I...
