For the record, my love for the BBC's Sherlock is devouring my brain. I had to share.
In publication news, I'm happy to report that my proposed article "From Amerind to Dorvan: The Future History of Native America in Star Trek" has been accepted for the upcoming History and Star Trek collection to be published by Wiley & Sons in 2012. I've been wanting to write a piece on this topic for a long time (tracing the subject of Native America through all of the incarnations of Trek), and I'm really pleased to have the opportunity now to do it.
Last, I wanted to let everyone in the United States with access to PBS know that, beginning on November 2, the Independent Lens series will be featuring the documentary Reel Injun: On the Trail of the Hollywood Indian. I recommend it. Once more with feeling, here's the trailer:
"How silently they tumble down
And come to rest upon the ground
To lay a carpet, rich and rare,
Beneath the trees without a care,
Content to sleep, their work well done,
Colors gleaming in the sun.
At other times, they wildly fly
Until they nearly reach the sky.
Twisting, turning through the air
Till all the trees stand stark and bare.
Exhausted, drop to earth below
To wait, like children, for the snow."
- Elsie N. Brady, "Leaves"
