Another Review copy book, and this time a single author collection…
I haven’t read any short story anthologies in a while, and this is the first of two in a row…
My next book is an ARC and my first entry into the “Posleen” universe of John Ringo
Early this (Friday) morning, NASA will deliberately crash a spacecraft into the moon, creating a new, man-made crater and possibly revealing hidden deposits of ice
The Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite, or LCROSS will send an empty rocket part at 5,600 into the surface. Instruments on the satellite and telescopes on earth will study the dust plumes generated by the impact for signs of water. If there is more water than the thin amount of hydroxyl ions recently discovered, it should be obvious in the plumes.
Bloggers who favorably review companies’ products and receive benefits, like a free game console, for those reviews need to disclose to their readers such ties, the Federal Trade Commission has ruled.
For what it is worth, if I receive a book for free to review, I *always* mention that in the review, and I always will. I think my reputation is such that I don’t necessarily give a fluff review to something I have received for free, anyway, but I always make it clear if I have received an ARC, promotional copy, or what have you.
Issue 8 of The Primgraph is now available- and this time we are indulging our tastes for ghoulies and ghosties and things that go bump in the night to celebrate Halloween!
There’s plenty to see in this issue, including, yet again, another exploration of a sim by my second life avatar, Mr Jvstin Tomorrow.
I managed to see all of the episodes of Ken Burns’ documentary, The National Parks, thanks to going on vacation and getting back to the hotel at the right time, and judicious visits and a sleepover at My Friends the Olsons™.
So, some thoughts on the series…
Back from my vacation to the Great
White Colorful North.
Still working on uploading pictures. But they will come!
In the meantime, a rough map of my adventures…
