  • Cosmic Rally – a new card game that combines strategy and speed.
  • Ruse: A Steampunk Storytelling Card Game – a murder has been committed in the Victorian Steampunk city of St. Sebastian. You have made the short list of Police suspects and the only way to retain your freedom is to prove that one of the others on the list is, in fact, the culprit.

Banned Book Week (September 21-27)

  1. [quote]Andrew Porter responds to Why Is Our Sci-Fi So Glum About A.I.? Saying “You’re mainly talking about movies—not written SF, which has explored machine intelligence for nearly a hundred years. You show your ignorance by not being aware of the literally thousands of stories which explore this area. Also, movies are sometimes based on written SF, and are operate under different criteria than written fiction does. The primary consideration is often cost—and the adaptation of a brilliant fiction about A.I. is under the often uncaring direction of the film industry, which, once it owns the rights to such a fiction, can and will do everything to dumb it down for the presumed millions of consumers who might want to watch a film, not about the intellectual ideas raised by the original fiction, but about evil robots bent on destroying the world.”[/quote]

    Are you sure about that? I can’t find it on the blog you linked to.
