"What kind of courage have you got?"

Happy birthday to the fabulous curtana! May you have a fantastic day and a wonderful year to come.

A few quick notes:

* I am the interviewee today in a special "Engine Room" episode of StarShipSofa: The Audio Science Fiction Magazine. The interview, which covers subjects related to science fiction, fantasy, and coffee, among other things, is a little over an hour - the entire show, in fact. You can download it here or via iTunes under "StarShipSofa," or listen to it streaming here. A list of my other podcast commentaries, interviews, and unabridged dramatic readings is available here with links.

* io9 recently posted two interesting features on one of my favorite literary topics, dystopias:
"The Best Future Dystopias Where The Liberals Have Won"
"The Best Future Dystopias Where The Conservatives Have Won"

* One of my favorite authors, Sherman Alexie, has a powerful new poem available online: "Mystery Train."

Henry: What kind of courage have you got?
Philip: The tidal kind: it comes and goes.
James Goldman, The Lion in Winter

That's where I developed my crush on Timothy Dalton. He has the most amazing eyes!!

He does indeed. And what an amazing performance he gives in the film! He's also my Rochester of choice in Jane Eyre.

Oh yes! Perfect Rochester.
