Administrative Notes

September 30, 2012

Well, I’m back. I went away for a while because, frankly, this project stopped being fun. Instead, I read more contemporary fiction, including Game of Thrones, though not any of the books that follow it yet, and watching lots and lots of Star Trek TNG.

In the interest of making this blog fun for me again, I am instituting the following changes:

  1. Short stories: I will no longer blog each short story separately. It was tedious and driving me crazy (I’m looking at you, Ray Bradbury). Instead, I will blog collections of short stories based on the year the collection was published. I will miss out on some of the chronological, evolution of sci-fi stuff this way, but it will greatly enhance my interest in blogging.
  2. Science: I will still do general science commentary, but will not try to be super scientific about it. I’m a well informed lay person, not an expert, and have no interest in being an expert in anything except science fiction paperbacks before 1970, the field I make my living in, and my other hobbies.
  3. No, that’s about it. Two changes to note. I think that will make things better.

Alrighty then. That’s that. What have you been reading lately?
