"None so devotional"

Happy Mother's Day to everyone who is a mother (biological, step, or otherwise, to two-footed or four-footed children)! Also, happy birthday to bistokidsfan77, with best wishes for many happy returns of the day!

I have a few links to share...

* A couple of people have asked me about my work on Star Trek and Arthuriana, which I referenced in my last post. My article ("The Sword in the StarShip: Arthuriana in the Four Incarnations of Star Trek") was published originally in 2000 in the now-extinct Winedark Sea; it's available online here as a PDF file. (Edit: For those of you whose browsers don't like this, you can also download the PDF file here. Please let me know if it needs to be uploaded again. Thanks!)

My book chapter ("Beam Me Up, King Arthur? Star Trek and the Arthurian Tradition") is due for 2010 publication in a collection edited by Michael A. Torregrossa and entitled The Reel Matter of Britain: Transformations of the Arthurian Legends on Film and Television. Thanks for your interest!

* The University of Nebraska Press is having a spring sale including 75% off of some of its science fiction publications from the Bison Frontiers of the Imagination imprint. See more here.

* From the Apex Book Company blog: Jacob Kier on "Why We Love the Apocalypse."

Because I feel that in the heavens above
The angels, whispering one to another,
Can find among their burning tears of love,
None so devotional as that of "Mother,"
Therefore, by that dear name I have long called you,
You who are more than mother unto me.
~Edgar Allan Poe
