Appearances — mostly past

In book news!, science fiction on March 27, 2009 at 4:11 pm


Alas, no Conbust for me this year. If y’all are going, have a fabulous time, and say “hi” to Randall Monroe for me!

All in all, I’m ready for a weekend at home, between

  • reporting on (but not attending) Pittcon (which is like Disneyland of analytical instruments — even more so than the American Vacuum Society meetings) , and
  • attending (but not yet reporting on) Lunacon (which is like a state fair for science fiction and fantasy fans, not to mention being as close to being trapped in an Escher drawing as I ever want to get).

I’ll spend the time putting in order my thoughts about powers displayed by Matt Jr. and Micah and Tracy from this past week’s episode.

I’ve also got a post brewing about how we use stories to understand reality, how we demand a ridiculous amount from stories in the mass media, except in the ways that we don’t demand nearly enough. (You can see why I’m not ready to post yet.)
