I'm going to Lauren Groff's book signing tonight. I like her work, and want to hear her talk about her writing Her newest book is a short story collection "Delicate Edible Birds". Her first book was the"'Monsters of Templeton"
Over the holidays I went to Joe Haldeman's signing and purchased his newest SF novel the "Accidental Time Machine" and "War Stories" a title I've beem meaning to buy for awhile. I am a big fan of his writing and encourage everyone to buy his books.
I received a galley for a forthcoming book about Geek knowledge. The galley is at home so I will report the title later tonight. It's a great Rodney geek-knowledge resource. It is a sad commentary on me that quite a bit of it I already knew. I don't consider myself a geek, but I guess , horrors, I am one.
The list that was the most personally interesting was the Shark Attack listing. It turns out that New Smyrna Florida is the
number one place in the world for shark attacks. This is the beach I've been swimming at since --forever. I always thought the rip currents and the untertows were the worst that could happen--but No. Next time I get pulled out (It's happened three times) I will be swimming parallel to the shore thinking about the damn sharks. This is Geek knowledge I didn't need to know.
I am working on a Rec post, and an episode one SGA post and other goodies.
