David L.  Dahl David L. Dahl's blog:

Consider the compass; an ancient, deceptively simple tool. For decades it marked the pinnacle of human innovation, coveted by both voyager and explorer. Rendered fromthe world’s finest brass and jewels, these were priceless works of art. Ironically, today you can buy a plastic one for a few bucks...

Ian   Andrew Ian Andrew's blog:

Alan Baxter is a British-Australian author who writes dark fantasy, horror and sci-fi. His collection of short stories, Crow Shine, is light on the sci-fi but certainly allows his skills in writing dark macabre to come to the fore. From clawing death, toangelic interlopers through time-twisting m...

Mira el pobre Verne y su viaje a la luna, o algo más cerca, Gibson y su ciberespacio. Si viera en que se han convertido […...

ODE TO LAUGHTER


I

We loved in three cities

danced in neon lights

between stripper poles and a Deejay

Unforgivable sin

in the belly of an unforgiving beast

we crawled through traffic

and raced through sheets

argued the veracity of opinions on Twitter

somewhere between the Atlantic and no pants

Letting go doesn’t mean we don’t care. It’s about having faith that things will work out. Let’s take a look at how letting go applies to the issue of money.

I absolutely loved Take Us To Your Chief, by Drew Hayden Taylor, which was just as funas its cover promised, and meaningful in a way I should have expected. Because while there is indeed something incongruous about First Nations’ science fiction, it’s only because I’ve never read any, not because...
