Links: 2019-01-04

Site Note

I knew I was going to shift the day I published “Links” posts from Wednesday to Friday, but forgot anticipate that shift last week by including people with birthdays from the 2nd and 3rd. The result of this is that I’m late with Isaac Asimov’s birthday, of all people’s, as well as Tobias S. Buckell’s and Miles J. Breuer’s. I also intended to have a special post ready for Asimov’s birthday but didn’t have time. Hopefully that will be ready soon. In the meantime, one of two links to birthday reviews in the “Science Fiction” links covers one of the Good Doctor’s stories. (Odd note: while it’s true that this “Links” post does cover nine days instead of the usual seven, it doesn’t explain how I often have a hard time finding material for all the sections but have a flood of everything this time.)
