Hugo Reading: The Triple Sun

As I suspected, despite being subtitled “A Golden Age Tale,” this story is not in fact set in John C. Wright’s universe. However, despite that, I found it an enjoyable read! 188 more words

Hugo Reading: Championship B'tok

Apparently I needn’t have gotten so many things on hold from the library, because the Book Bombing is making the material more easily available! I did get ahold (heh heh) of things earlier though, so it was worth it. 343 more words

Hugo Reading: "Flow"

You know, I don’t think I’m going to nominate this one. And I’m glad I didn’t pay any money to purchase it, either.

“Flow” is the story of a young Arctic tribesman, who accompanies a trading mission to the “Warm Lands” and sees many fascinating sights – quite an accomplishment, apparently, since the Arctic people are all so farsighted that they cannot see anything clearly up close, and thus their written language consists of a form of Braille carved into sticks. 800 more words

I would put it differently and if I was writing for The American Prospect, well if I was writing for The American Prospect, they probably wouldn’t of published what I have to say about The New Republic, because I wasn’t backing the party line. 366 more words
