It Came From LJ!

* If you're looking for a worthy project to fund, check out this Indiegogo campaign to build the Museum of Science Fiction's Preview Location: Help us build a preview location for the new nonprofit Museum of Science Fiction in Washington, DC! (Thanks to shiny_elfriend!)

* Speaking of science fiction, next weekend I'll be conducting a live virtual interview with award-winning and bestselling SF author David Brin for the Sofanauts. I'm soliciting questions! If you've got something you'd like me to ask Dr. Brin, please let me know. I hope to "see" some of you at the interview.

* My latest "Looking Back into Genre History" segment is up on the latest episode of StarShipSofa, and it offers a tribute to the science fiction career of actor Russell Johnson, who passed away last month. If you listen, I hope you enjoy!



* Last but not least, a recommendation. I have a pattern when it comes to adaptations: I go the source material first and read it, and then I watch the adaptation to see how it measures up. Not this time. I fell hard for the A&E television series Longmire thanks to its gorgeous use of setting, consistently excellent acting, and most of all its informed and sensitive portrayal of the interaction and politics between Anglo and Northern Cheyenne communities in Wyoming. In fact, I hesitated about reading the novels that had inspired the show, in fear that this might somehow compromise my enjoyment of the series. I needn't have worried. (Thanks for your encouragement, ankh_hpl!) Reading the first two novels in Craig Johnson's Walt Longmire series has only enhanced my appreciation of the Longmire show and convinced me that I need to read all of the other books in the series, which I will do very soon.
