Tenebrarum et Nebulae

January 31, 2018

Behold!  A couple photos of the Hyper-Sooper-Dooper Blueberry Fresh ‘n’ Fruity Moon Incarnadine, or whatever they called it. Apparently we can’t just say “lunar eclipse” any more. The first photo shows the crepuscular, fuliginous shadow of Terra, creeping rather like an octopus across the lunar surface.  (Also note that I just called it the “shadowy […]

Reckless

January 31, 2018

I’ve been reading David Yaffe’s Reckless Daughter: A Portrait of Joni Mitchell.  Which I just sort of stumbled upon, and which turns out to be pretty terrific. Joni  Mitchell was one of those people who was on the radio constantly when I was growing up, which meant I didn’t have to think about her, because she […]

1929-2018

January 26, 2018

When I heard of Ursula LeGuin’s death, I realized that she was someone who, as far as I was concerned, had always been there.   I’d been reading her since Rocannon’s World, the Hainish space opera that seemed equally to resonate with the works of Tolkien and Leigh Brackett.  (“Wherever he went, his super science made him […]

January 15, 2018

My signing at the Jean Cocteau went well, and I was gratified by the number of people who turned up, the more so considering that I was in competition with Albuquerque Comic-Con. After signing books for those in attendance, I signed the remaining stock, which means that if you want some signed Walter Jon Williams […]

I Am Me Right In Front Of You

January 12, 2018

This coming Sunday, January 14, I’ll be at the Jean Cocteau Theater in Santa Fe for a 3pm talk and signing.  George RR Martin will be conducting the interview. Albuquerque Comic Con will be going on at the same time, so I expect the crowd might be a little thin. Feel free to show up […]

Table Manners of the Stars

January 12, 2018

In my novel Implies Spaces, I referred to a particularly catastrophic cosmic event as the “big belch.”  Now the Hubble and Chandra space telescopes have viewed a “double burp” from a black hole in a galaxy known by the stirring name SDSS J1354+1327. The Mighty Williams Prediction Machine rolls on! Hubble was able to show them that […]

Nazis for New Year

January 9, 2018

If you use social media, you’ve met neo-Nazis and their allies.  They’re everywhere, and they’re about as charming as you’d expect.  And if you haven’t met them personally, you’ve probably met one of their avatars. The con goes like this: The impersonator lifts an online photo of a Jew, Muslim, African-American or other minority — […]
