Wednesday

If you're reading this you made it to Wednesday! Go you! (Yes, it's been that kind of week.)

If you missed it, I posted good news yesterday: More Audiobooks

I was on a list! 100 of the Best Fantasy Authors from the Past Century I am generally not a writer who ends up on lists of anything (especially lists of writers) so this was a really nice surprise.

White Hot Room: [INSPO] What Would Leia Organa Wear? – The Razor’s Edge Edition
This is a blog by two cosplayers -- be sure to check out the photos of the various costumes they've made.

NYT: Welcome to the 'Sharing Economy'
While it sounds like Chesky is just a global rental agent with more scale, there is something much bigger going on here. Airbnb’s real innovation is not online rentals. It’s “trust.” It created a framework of trust that has made tens of thousands of people comfortable renting rooms in their homes to strangers.

Fun Vids:

* Nothing to Prove - Geek Girls & The Doubleclicks (by thedoubleclicks)

* Trailer for Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Cosmos

That trailer for Neil deGrasse Tyson's Cosmos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Y'know, in my headcanon he was one of the Doctor's companions as a very young man. I think he should actually be in an episode.

Oh, that would be awesome! It would also make a great aside in one of their Comic Relief specials:

Tyson walks into the Tardis.

The Doctor: "Hey, who-- Oh, hello, Neil."

RIGHT?!

And he'd be all, "Hey, Doctor" and everyone would be all SQUEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

Hooray for Wednesday! Hope you have a great rest of the week!

Congratulations on the audiobooks, that's awesome, able to get your writing out to a wider audience!

Also - you deserve to be on that list. Everytime someone asks for a new fantasy/scifi author to read, I'm suggesting your books lately. :)

Great vids! Thanks for sharing!


Cool, thank you very much!

Apropos of nothing, I just finished rereading Wheel of the Infinite today, and it was every bit as wonderful as I remembered, maybe even better since I have an extra decade of perspective now.
I got a funny feeling at the end, though, when the (to avoid spoilers as much as possible) little girl was named Siri. Did you feel any creepy-crawlies a couple of years ago when the smartphone ads started running that had people asking Siri for oracular answers on every topic under the sun, including how to live their lives, and treating it like their best friend?

That's great, thank you!

It was weird hearing it a lot at first, but I got used to it so quickly that now I don't even notice.
