Reviews Too Late: Young Detective Dee and the Rise of the Sea Dragon

October 1, 2014

A title like that tells you pretty much all you need to know, neh? Directed by my onetime creative associate Tsui Hark, Young Detective Dee is a prequel to Tsui’s 2010 Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame, which I reviewed a couple years ago.  The first film was set at the court of the steely, […]

Strati-Cumulate

September 28, 2014

Here’s the Strati, the first car created by a 3D printer. Well, except for the mechanical bits.  The parts that actually make it drive an’ stuff.  The parts that make it an actual car.  Those aren’t printed, those are manufactured elsewhere. But still.  Pretty, no? In the old days, people would buy a frame and engine, […]

Globalquerque, Part II.

September 24, 2014

The second night opened with Oumar Konaté from Mali.  He’s something of the spokesman for his generation, those who watched their republic overthrown by a military government that was so inept that it promptly handed half the country to a guerrilla army of Islamist fanatics.

September 22, 2014

This highlight of the weekend was Albuquerque’s world music festival, Globalquerque, held in the Mayan pyramid-shaped Hispanic Cultural Center.   Three stages running simultaneously, along with a food area offering ethnic fast food, craft beer, and arts and crafts. Since three bands were playing simultaneously, I wasn’t able to catch them all, but I got […]

September 19, 2014

A brief announcement before I get to the actual subject of this post.  Angel Station and The Rift are now available on iBooks.  There had been some kind of technical issue with Smashwords until I got my very own iBooks account, and now the technical issues don’t exist.  Nothing like do-it-yourself.  The Green Leopard Plague and Other […]

Update/Flashback

September 18, 2014

I’ve been spending long hours updating my web page, which is the sort of task that makes me wish I had an assistant— at least to handle the foul language, because that’s the most repetitive part of the process.

The Redcoats Are Silly!

September 17, 2014

Some poor Grenadier Guardsman is in trouble for, well, this.  And all he was trying to do was make his job less boring.  And maybe do a wee little hommage to John Cleese. You’ve got to hope his officers are at least as tolerant as those fellows in Norway.

Ticking, Ever Ticking

September 17, 2014

My 99-cent sale for Metropolitan ends midnight on Wednesday, so if you haven’t yet got a copy, check out  Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, and Smashwords.  (Actually I may delay a bit, because there’s a late run at Smashwords, with the book running off the shelves ever since Saturday night.  I assume someone said something nice about the book somewhere online, […]
