Remember, Remember the Fifth of November...

Happy Guy Fawkes/Bonfire Night. Today's a great day for reading a good book or watching a good film. :)


In other news...

* Reminder: if you'd like a holiday card from me this year, please respond here. Thanks!

* I'm currently reading the new novel authorized by the Arthur Conan Doyle estate, The House of Silk: A Sherlock Holmes Novel. So far, so good.

* I recommend watching the documentary The People vs. George Lucas (if you're like me, preferably in a venue in which you feel free to speak/shout your agreement aloud). I must say, my geek heart experienced some closure on the whole Lucas 'verse, thanks to this gem.

* I've accepted an invitation from the Institute for Humane Studies to give some guest lectures at Bryn Mawr College this summer. I haven't spoken there in several years. Should be great fun!


I'll leave you with this mashup of H.P. Lovecraft and The Peanuts (thanks to wellinghall):

sci fi fantasy - Charlie Brown Meets Cthulhu

Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder, treason and plot,
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
