  1. Peter F. Hamilton. You know what the F. stands for.

  2. Glad to know I’m not the only one who has a special spot in their personal cheese factory for ICE PIRATES.

    Also, nice to see the love for FarScape.

    • Yeah, so do I.(in re Ice Pirates)

      As far as the romance of SF…I think there is a perception that “SF needs to grow up”, and jettison things like Space Opera in favor of that horrid Mundane SF movement.

      To hell with that, thankyouverymuch

  3. Speaking of Mike Kaluta’s Starstruck comic, it’s beautiful, but I just don’t understand it. Some of it’s online. http://starstruckcomics.com/ Maybe I should just buy it and sit down with it.
