  • Little Things, Sneeze, Balloon. Don’t read these three Calvin and Hobbes reprints in public unless you don’t mind people looking at the crazy laughing person.

  • 50 Page Friday: FOUNDATION by Issac Asimov – Unbound Worlds. Free Asimov to read, which—if you’re not already on it—may start you down the road to SF changing your life. This amounts to the complete 1951 prequel story, “The Psychohistorians,” along with the first two of the seven sections of the first-written 1942 Foundation story, “Foundation,” (known as “The Encyclopedists” in book form).

  • Weekly Webzine Wrap-Up (2018-10-07). Updated with BCS stories on the 8th. Still intend to get out some belated September reviews and to update the Monthly Summation in the near future.
  • There is simply no precedent for Hurricane Michael | Popular Science. Here we go again. My sympathies to Floridians and others between there and here. Soon, the Carolinas will get some of Michael to go with Florence. While devastating to the east and significant here, the effects of Florence here were not as bad as I’d expected. So I don’t know what’s coming; it’s likely we’ll lose power but hopefully only briefly. The one silver lining I can see is that, unlike Florence, this one should move through quickly.
