Happy Happy Birthday Birthday!

Thank you to everyone who has sent kind birthday wishes, virtual gifts, and goodies my way today. :) I am so grateful for you, my friends!

And, speaking of birthdays, happy birthday to savageseraph and doctorwho42! May you both have wonderful days and fantastic years to come.


I have a few links to share:

* From lindajsingleton: "Are Aliens the Next Hot Book Trend?"

* From ActuSF: a new interview with Lois McMaster Bujold.

* From Sci Fi Wire: "18 Post-Apocalyptic Sci-Fi Survivors Ranked From Best To Worst."

* From Spill: "10 Deadly Movie Epidemics."

* Happy first birthday, also, to Aural Delights, the little sibling of the audio science fiction magazine StarShipSofa! Speaking of which, nominations for the annual Sofanaut Awards are currently underway, and there are a number of great contributors, stories, and illustrations eligible for your votes. I am on the ballot in two categories in this nomination round, "Best Narrator" and "Best Fact Article Contributor." The polls are open! If you'd like to take part, you can vote here!



A few moments of silence ensued; then the captain demanded,--

"What think you of my life, gentlemen?"

Cyrus Harding extended his hand to the ci-devant prince and replied gravely, "Sir, your error was in supposing that the past can be resuscitated, and in contending against inevitable progress. It is one of those errors which some admire, others blame; which God alone can judge. He who is mistaken in an action which he sincerely believes to be right may be an enemy, but retains our esteem. Your error is one that we may admire, and your name has nothing to fear from the judgment of history, which does not condemn heroic folly, but its results."

The old man's breast swelled with emotion, and raising his hand to heaven,--

"Was I wrong, or in the right?" he murmured.
