Science and fiction—thoughts on the value of getting the physics right · 4:27pm Aug 31st, 2014

While finalising Twilight's Sputnik, I got thinking about all the fiction I have read which involves some sort of stargazing. One which came to my mind was Isaac Asimov's classic short story Nightfall, a tale of an alien world which is only plunged into darkness once every 2000 years or so

Frankenstein vs. Today's Newspaper · 7:43pm March 26th

I'm listening to "Masterpieces of the Imaginative Mind", a 2007 lecture series by Eric Rabkin about fantasy and science fiction.  In lecture 14, "Frankenstein", he said the story is a warning against "science in the hands of an egotist, alienated from the restraining wisdom of community".  He closed the lecture by saying, "To test the relevance of this admonition,

I Need Experienced Military Help · 7:12am Aug 31st, 2016

So yeah, unfortunately my old military guy (Air Force I believe to be specific) editor/pre-reader had to drop from Lazarus. Now I'm shit out of luck when it comes to military chatter and or terminology. I know the typical garbage that a regular civvie like myself would know; however, I would prefer to try to have the Lazarus soldiers actually sound like real soldiers and not some Call of Duty/Battlefield shmucks.

The Return of the War Games · 4:26am Jun 17th, 2019

So, I've been away for a number of years, and honestly? I'm angry at myself. Sure, at the moment, I can justify it by saying that it's because my internet is so bad at the moment, but in the end, that's just an excuse.

I'm reviving my old story, Future Tactics - The War Games, for a good reason.

The story was fun to write, and is fun to write. However, this post is a double-header for a reason.

Sweet and Elite: Dangerous · 11:27pm Jun 30th, 2016

You'd think someone would have written this crossover given, well, this meme...

...wouldn't you?

(For anyone who hasn't played Elite: Dangerous, it's actually the "frame shift drive". Except, y'know, the voice acting gives rise to this particular mondegreen. And, hey, who knows but frame shift is magic, too.

There may even be another thing to inspire this particular piece of writing:

The Importance Of Checking Your Numbers · 1:36pm Jul 24th, 2016

One of the fun things about sfnalizing magic (at least in relatively firm SF) is all the unanticipated consequences that you need to look for, carefully, before you decide that that's how that works. Because whatever physical principle you come up with, the odds are that someone will have thought of other interesting things that could be done with it, and if they don't, then your readers will.
