Yaaresse Wait, 1970s is historical fiction now?
That's...wow, that is almost as depressing as having music I listened to in college be referred to as "golden oldies."

Looking forward to DeGrasse Tyson's book. He was on Colbert last night doing the dog and pony show for it, and it sounds like a fun read.

I'm also looking forward to when this fad of reducing a book description to a half dozen words and a "If you liked X" is long past.

Zane What I am wondering is how the author of this blog got the title 'Legion' out of 'The Boy on the Bridge'.
