SF! Sci-fi! Science fiction! From space opera series to a standalone
novel dealing with colonizatiopn and relativity. Good reads, one
and all. Check them out for some pleasant (exciting!) summertime
A couple weeks to go on the fantasy football magazines. The light
at the end of the tunnel might not be a freight train but the
full lightness of day. When the mags are behind me, it's full
tilt on the steampunk since the western is completed and sent
off. Lots of projects ahead that can fill the rest of the year,
including another western (I know, I want to get away from westerns
and more into sf again, but this one...this one's intriguing).
Ahead next Saturday is the annual CESE (Coalition for Excellence
in Science Education) meeting. Frank Etscorn is speaker, he who
invented the transdermal patch.
I should know better. And I do. I did it anyway. I volunteered
to be a judge for the 2018 Western Fictioneers Peacemaker Awards
in the short story category. More on that as the year unfolds.
Not sure about this but was contacted about appearing at next
month's Wizard Con here in town. They asked, I said yes and asked
questions ... and maybe scared them off. More when I hear back
(if I do). There is always Bubonicon coming up in a mere 2 months.
I don't know how it is possible to have such a short year, but
I am glad Bcon is such a good marker.
Theatrical movies: Nothing. Nothing on the horizon except possibly
Baby Driver. The trailer made it look pretty spectacular
as far as driving goes. But seeing it depends on time and mood.
A couple definites are Kiki's Delivery Service and My
Friend Totoro on the big screen. Love it that Studio Ghibli
is seeing a renascence (because of Miazaki's "unretirement")
But do I want to see the new Hollywood flicks? Not so much.

My e-books on the catalog

iPad viewing: Two episodes of Angie Tribeca. I suspect
this one is winding down and won't be renewed. A shame since it
is actually funny, but it had a good run.
iPad reading: Will Murray's Pat Savage book done. It didn't resonate
with me. Started the Doc Savage/Shadow mashup. It's going better.
I need to go back and reread one of the Lester Dent's to see if
the style matches. The passive construction and echoing are wearing
iPad listening: Spotify. A group called Ossa Rex is worth your
time. Has Colin Malloy of the Decemberists doing "Blackleg
Miner" which is great.
