genre notes

I am so glad Revolution Science Fiction has added a list of new and returning genre television series this season, complete with premiere dates. Thus far, I'm only committing to watching Lost and, when it finally returns, 24, but we'll see.

In other news, yesterday I was able to catch a reading and signing by M.M. Buckner, whose new novel War Surf is now available (the third in her cyberpunk series, which began with Hyperthought, the winner of the 2004 SESFA Award for Best Novel, and Neurolink). She had a great turnout, and I was especially pleased that some of my students attended.

A quote for the day:

By "scientifiction,"... I mean the Jules Verne, H. G. Wells, and Edgar Allan Poe type of story---a charming romance intermingled with scientific fact and prophetic vision.

Hugo Gernsback, Amazing Stories, 1926

At last, a meme I really like...

Gacked shamelessly from llembas

The best meme ever:
I want to have a complete soundtrack with one song from each of my friends. Pick one song (or more if you want) you want me to associate with you, then comment. You don't have to upload it. Just give me the name and artist, and I will find it myself. It can be your favorite song in the whole world, a recent favorite or just a song that you think really identifies you.

Thank you!
