    Every week for the next four weeks, I'm going to hold a contest here on my blog. And the winner of each contest will receive copies of "Infoquake," "MultiReal," "The Solaris Book of New Science Fiction, Volume Two," and Mervyn Peake's "Titus Alone." Read the full article for details.
  4. On Self-Promotion  • 
    I'm seeing a lot of people picking on Cory Doctorow for being a self-promotional whore, and it's irritating the piss out of me. These complainers need to understand that the twentieth century paradigm of advertising and promotion where the content sits on one side of the page, and the advertisements sit on the other side of the page, and there's a nice clear line separating the two, is dead.
  5. Balticon 42 Wrapup  • 
    Chaos and science fiction conventions go together like rum and Coke. Which makes Balticon 42 about 180 proof. But hey, just because Balticon was chaotic and organizationally challenged in places doesn't mean it wasn't fun.

    Well, it’s that time of year again… time to make your nominations for the Hugo and Campbell Awards in preparation for this year’s WorldCon. Here’s the link to the official Hugo Award Voting site, where you can download the ballot. I’m absolutely loathe to do this, considering that I scrupulously try to avoid any hint […]
  10. End-of-Year Miscellany  • 
    So I’m in Houston, Texas right now for a big ol’ reunion of my wife’s family. Somewhere around 30 people in all whose political views span the spectrum between rabid leftists and rabid rightists. Actually, that’s incorrect. There really is no spanning of the spectrum; just a bunch of folks hanging out on each end […]
