The New Semester, It Draws Nigh!

Hi there! Happy Friday, everyone!

1. Tremendous thanks to all of you who took part in my poll about my October posts. (It's still open, if you wish to participate.) I really appreciate your feedback! My countdown will indeed be appearing here in October, and I truly hope you enjoy it.

2. Students from five different continents are enrolled for my "Science Fiction, Part 1: From Modern Beginnings through the Golden Age" course for Mythgard Institute, and I couldn't be more thrilled! Registration is still open for this class, and it's also still open for my one-time live lecture event on "The Hunger Games and the Science Fiction Tradition."

3. Happy early birthday to roo2, darthsindel1981, ceosanna, amygrech, dormannheim, super_chik, dement1a, and funkyturtle. May all of you enjoy many happy returns of the day, my friends!
