  • The Agony Column has part one of a podcast-interview with Charles Stross (Halting State), who, at his own website, lists his upcoming novels.
  • A.R. Yngve takes an introspective look at sf fads and fashions: “All science-fiction fads, when you look back at them, seem naive. They are invariably rooted in the wishful thinking and cultural anxieties of their time and audience.”

  • As part of The Sci-Fi Experience 2008, Dark Orpheus shares his re-reading experience with C.J. Cherryh’s Cyteen.
  • The New York Times recollects an article from 1908 that offered predications for 2008. “We may have gyroscopic trains as broad as houses swinging at 200 miles an hour up steep grades and around dizzying curves…”
  • And finally, the last tidbit of 2007: Brewster Rockit, Space Guy looks at New Years’ Resolutions.
