"as little bad as you can"

* My latest dramatic narration for StarShipSofa, which is the first of a three-part reading of Rachel Swirsky's Nebula Award-winning and Hugo Award-nominated novella The Lady Who Plucked Red Flowers Beneath The Queen’s Window, is now available on the most recent episode of the podcast. Parts two and three will follow on successive Wednesdays. (The same episode includes an interview with me on the subject of time travel, in expectation of my appearance with the amazing science fiction authors Connie Willis and Ted Chiang on July 23 at the Holodeck Online Time Travel Lecture.)

In other news...

And a parting note...

funny pictures history - It's sandpeople alright,  I can see a bantha.
see more Historic LOL

Today is the anniversary of the beheading of Sir Thomas More, so I'll let him have the final word:

"You must not abandon the ship in a storm because you cannot control the winds.... What you cannot turn to good, you must at least make as little bad as you can."
—Sir Thomas More, Utopia

I appreciate the Thomas Moore quote. He's always been one of my favorites.

Cool! Look forward to hearing the story. I thought I'd read that one already, but apparently not...

Aw, thank you so much for listening! I hope you enjoy it. The story has some fascinating twists/turns before it's finished. I quite enjoyed reading it.
