In other news, yesterday I was able to catch a reading and signing by M.M. Buckner, whose new novel War Surf is now available (the third in her cyberpunk series, which began with Hyperthought, the winner of the 2004 SESFA Award for Best Novel, and Neurolink). She had a great turnout, and I was especially pleased that some of my students attended.
A quote for the day:
By "scientifiction,"... I mean the Jules Verne, H. G. Wells, and Edgar Allan Poe type of story---a charming romance intermingled with scientific fact and prophetic vision.
Hugo Gernsback, Amazing Stories, 1926
