"Do the stars gaze back?"

Happy birthday to green_key! May you have a most excellent day and fantastic year to come.

I have a few links to share:

* Librivox has added unabridged readings of several new genre stories:
- Short Science Fiction Collection Vol. 009 featuring short stories by various authors and readers
- The Creature from Beyond Infinity by Henry Kuttner, read by Mark Nelson
- Operation Terror by Murray Leinster, read by Mark Nelson
- Animal Ghosts by Elliott O'Donnell, read by Hester

* From io9, some indie science fiction films to watch for (or avoid): "Science Fiction Conquers Sundance."

* The webcomic Lovecraft is Missing is definitely worth checking out. (Thanks to kalquessa!)

A philosopher once asked, "Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?" Pointless, really... "Do the stars gaze back?" Now that's a question.

Do the stars gaze back?
of course they do! That's what makes it all worth while!

Excellent point!

"Do the stars gaze back?" has a certain Lewis Carroll vibe to it.

It truly does.

I was completely unaware of Lovecraft is Missing. Thanks for filling this gap in my eldritch knowledge!

As for whether or not the stars gaze back, this is not a question likely to produce untroubled sleep . . .

My pleasure! I was so glad kalquessa recommended it!

LOL! Well, you know, when the stars are right...

Auden's Answer
W. H. Auden had an answer (http://mirthmemoriesandmore.blogspot.com/2007/06/filler.html) to the question "do the stars gaze back?" but it may be one that you don't want to hear.

Re: Auden's Answer
This is powerful stuff. Not to mention challenging, as well:

If equal affection cannot be,
Let the more loving one be me.

Auden could cut through to the point rather deftly, couldn't he? Great stuff. Thanks so much for the link.
