2 Comments on UPDATE: My New Year’s Resolution

  1. Well…I’m not doing any fancy scoring system, but so far I’ve gotten through six books (and have four more just about finished) and have either read or given up on (because I did not like them after trying to read them) some 59 short stories, novellas, novelettes and essays related to SF & F.

  2. Well Fred,
    John obviously has a lot of time on his hands. Witness his propensity to troll Star Wars sites….
