My review of New Moon is up at I’ll have more to say about this movie, later. (Oh, do I EVER have more to say about this movie.) But for now, read and know that, as you read this, this movie is screening to sold-out theatres across the land. Just…think about it.… Read more »
So, The Prisoner remake happened on Sunday. And apparently it’s still happening? I fell asleep, so I don’t really know, but I wrote it up at, with the headline, “I am not a number! I am a free bland!”, which should pretty much give you an idea of what you’re in for. And now, an open letter to Ian McKellen! Dear Ian, I know none of this is your fault. I chose a production still where you look grumpy, specifically to highlight how much this is not your fault.… Read more »
So, “Advection” and “Bespoke” both made the Nebula Suggested Reading List. That is amazing, and it is awesome. If you’re an interested SFWA member (or would just like to check them out!), “Advection” can be read at Clarkesworld, and “Bespoke” can be read at Strange Horizons.… Read more »
1. I suspect this is what all period films look like to my sister. 2. The 1:36 mark is for every English major who ever took an Austen course.… Read more »
This weekend, AMC premiered its remake of the cult-classic sci-fi show The Prisoner. This incarnation was advertised as a bold new direction for the series, which follows a government agent trying to escape from a mysterious tormentor in an isolated village too good to be true. Word to the wise: if you try to take this cult classic in a new direction, you might want to make sure you don’t take the Dark City exit through Pleasantville on your way to M. Night’s The Village, or else you risk coming… Read more »
I’m putting discretion aside and just going for this, because it seems like a good day to mention some short stories I’ve written that are eligible for the Nebula this year. Advection. A girl, a plant, a young man, Panama. Bespoke. Fine clothes for the self-satisfied time-traveler in your life. Carthago Delenda Est. You know how your signature is never exactly the same? It’s like that, with people. The Red Shoes. Tango: world’s creepiest dance. (A full list of my published fiction is available here; most of it was published… Read more »

    Vox’s Joss Fong put together a beautiful video pairing the images from the Voyager Golden Records (learn more about them here) with words from Carl Sagan and music from Blind Willie Johnson. The first image was a simple “calibrating circle” used in this post’s title.

    There’s something powerful about this collection of images – this small attempt to sum up human existence. Carl Sagan said:

    The spacecraft will be encountered and the record played only if there are advanced space-faring civilizations in interstellar space. But the launching of this ‘bottle’ into the cosmic ‘ocean’ says something very hopeful about life on this planet.

    If we sent a time capsule to the aliens today, what would you want to include?
