Today has been another busy one. The Day Jobbe has taken up much of my time, but I did get to look at a small, fully furnished cottage that just might be exactly what I need. I’ll be putting in an application tomorrow. Meanwhile I have a few links for you.
– Issue #3 of Yipe!, the costuming fanzine, is now available.
– Science in My Fiction discusses how to cook pasta on Mars.
– The Florida Family Policy Council of Orlando proves that no lie is too outrageous when it comes to hating gay people.
– And finally, over at SFWA, Nnedi Okorafor tries to decide what it means to be African. Some of what she says is remarkably reminiscent of ridiculous turf wars over who is a “proper” trans person, and indeed who is a “proper” science fiction fan. Identity politics can be dangerous stuff.
