From Mytek the Mighty to the TARDIS control room


I was delighted and honoured to be invited to appear at CRoM Con Europe, the convention for comics fans and SF/fantasy geeks. Many thanks to Pops Van Sant, our esteemed host, and Glenn B Fleming, UK comics powerhouse, for including me. I got to hold forth about Mirabilis for a bit, describe my visit to the Doctor Who studios back in the Hartnell era, and as an added bonus I got to meet the guys fr Read more of this blog post »

Ever Rest by Roz Morris

Ever Rest by Roz Morris
"From the very beginning of “Ever Rest” characters get under your skin and stay there; so well defined, so well explored. Mount Everest has taken a life, but somehow it seems to yearn for more, whether it’s lives in Nepal or London, like an avalanche " Read more of this review »

Piranesi by Susanna Clarke

A fantasy mystery/thriller that is, in effect, Mythago Wood with architecture (and sans the compelling family narrative). The setting is imaginative, and both that and the story suggest a good computer game more than anything else. I found it a page- ...more

Vivid stream-of-consciousness, effective for a while but I felt it went on a little too long. Also I was unsure whether some clumsy phrases (eg "he's from perfume") were intentionally part of the narrating character's ungrammatical idiom or were just ...more

Quite apart from the stories, which are gems of compressed comics craft, the background material about the strips is fascinating. As a child I never knew the artists’ names, but I remembered the first one (Jennings) as being quite sloppy in the way h ...more

I found it unreadable and gave up after thirty-five pages. There are just too many mannerisms and reflections crammed in alongside the dialogue, and too many wodges of incidental detail and backstory concerning characters we're only going to see for ...more

I have to be careful not to give too much away, so I'll just say this is a masterpiece of anxiety and existential disintegration. It's often likened to Kafka, notably by Anthony Powell, and I suppose he was thinking of The Trial, but it also put me i ...more

Richard P. Feynman
“I have a friend who's an artist and has sometimes taken a view which I don't agree with very well. He'll hold up a flower and say "look how beautiful it is," and I'll agree. Then he says "I as an artist can see how beautiful this is but you as a scientist take this all apart and it becomes a dull thing," and I think that he's kind of nutty. First of all, the beauty that he sees is available to other people and to me too, I believe. Although I may not be quite as refined aesthetically as he is ... I can appreciate the beauty of a flower. At the same time, I see much more about the flower than he sees. I could imagine the cells in there, the complicated actions inside, which also have a beauty. I mean it's not just beauty at this dimension, at one centimeter; there's also beauty at smaller dimensions, the inner structure, also the processes. The fact that the colors in the flower evolved in order to attract insects to pollinate it is interesting; it means that insects can see the color. It adds a question: does this aesthetic sense also exist in the lower forms? Why is it aesthetic? All kinds of interesting questions which the science knowledge only adds to the excitement, the mystery and the awe of a flower. It only adds. I don't understand how it subtracts.”
Richard P. Feynman, The Pleasure of Finding Things Out: The Best Short Works of Richard P. Feynman

Carlo Rovelli
“If I ask whether two events—one on Earth and the other on Proxima b—are happening “at the same moment,” the correct answer would be: “It’s a question that doesn’t make sense, because there is no such thing as ‘the same moment’ definable in the universe.” The “present of the universe” is meaningless.”
Carlo Rovelli, The Order of Time

Albert Camus
“Le mal qui est dans le monde vient presque toujours de l'ignorance, et la bonne volonté peut faire autant de dégâts que la méchanceté, si elle n'est pas éclairée. Les hommes sont plutôt bons que mauvais, et en vérité ce n'est pas la question. Mais ils ignorent plus ou moins, et c'est ce qu'on appelle vertu ou vice, le vice le plus désespérant étant celui de l'ignorance qui croit tout savoir et qui s'autorise alors à tuer. L'âme du meurtrier est aveugle et il n'y a pas de vraie bonté ni de bel amour sans toute la clairvoyance possible.”
Albert Camus
