I’ve been reading more of Philip K. Dick’s stories lately. Mostly his short stories, but also The Man in the High Castle. Thinking about Dick’s stories, my impressions of Arizona are filtered through the lens of historicity.
What is the “authentic” Arizona experience? Is it one steeped in history, or that which reflects the current reality?
The Phoenix Skyharbour Airport is similar to most other…
Last week, Jay Lake passed away.
I met him briefly at the 2009 Worldcon in Montreal. He was always a very colourful person, and a very prolific writer.

one-episode-relationships 4/X: O’Brian & Tosk
Reasons why O’Brien is awesome.
There are many great stories about First Contact: when humanity first meets alien life. Bundoran Press, a small publisher in Ottawa, is currently in the last days of a fundraising campaign for a science fiction anthology of Second Contacts. The premise is interesting, as it allows the stories to explore the very real social changes that would occur during the fifty years after contact with an…
It should not be a surprise to anyone that music and writing are often closely linked. While some people can write in absolute silence, I generally benefit from music to help block out the world.
The trick is in finding the right music. Something that stirs the creative mind, something which matches the mood of the work, and most importantly of all, something which isn’t overly distracting.
To be honest, [If Wishes Were Horses] really didn’t capture my imagination. Manufactured crises with deus ex machina endings just don’t cut it. Still, there are some redeeming qualities in the episode, one of which is watching Bashir try to explain to Jadzia Dax why his subconscious created a version of Dax that has the single goal of seducing him.
It’s probably not a good sign when you pull out…
I’ve just finished rewatching Silence in the Library, and Forest of the Dead, the two episodes of Doctor Who where River Song is introduced.
So much potential is introduced in this story, that it’s not entirely surprising that fans feel let down by how River’s story has played out.

A few weeks ago, I received an offer of employment from Google. I’ll be working in the Google Waterloo office, currently located in the Tannery building in downtown Kitchener. It’s a pretty cool office, which I’ve visited several times now for various interviews and meetings.
I’ve worked for small and medium-sized companies before, but before this, the largest company I’ve worked for was Research…
I love how Hans is all subtle and Anna just CRASHES into him.
Does Anna even know how strong she is? I mean, she hit a wolf away with a lute. She just batted it away like it was nothing. And then she punches Hans flying off a boat. He arches. Arches.AND LET’S NOT FORGET SHE JUST ACCIDENTALLY THROWS A BUST FAR AWAY LIKE IT’S NOTHING. HOW STRONG IS THIS GIRL?People also forget that she pulled kristoff up a cliff and pulled a tree down to hit marshmallow in the face… this girl
Anna born with superstrength and her while life her parents just told her she was clumsy and ordinary. They didn’t want to deal with another weird superpowered daughter.
Headcanon accepted! Anna has super strength and Elsa has Ice Powers. They’d make a great crime fighti- wait…haven’t we seen that before?
HEADCANON DEFINITELY ACCEPTED NOW
Strength? Ice? SIBLINGS? Guys, you’re missing a thing:
Do you wanna throw the Mjolniiiiir? Or cross the Bifrost to Midgaaard?
Anna and Elsa as Thor and Loki? This seems appropriate.
