Post is late and short today because after raging out for a few hundred words about some of the stuff I’ve read today on race, diversity, privilege and “the unbearable whiteness” of a certain writer, I decided it was not the best way to start on a Monday. I’ll just leave you with this one tidbit: the debate to determine and quantify the “Privilege” of various groups is today’s “Angels dancing on the head of a pin”.
I managed to avoid buying any new books, but I DID pick up a few things to choose from for the next game my dad and I play after we finish Fortress Europa this week.
Later this week, I’ll wrap on the Summer 1947 issue of Planet Stories with “Quest on Phoebe” by James R. Adams. I won’t lie and say I’ll finally get around to A Star is Born by Joseph Green, but it could happen. I may or may not talk about it at great length, but I’ve finished Nine Princes in Amber; so THATs where the Illusion school gets its basis in AD&D!
Reading submissions this week and totally stoked to see this project taking shape. If you want to get something in issue 1 of Cirsova, try to have it to me before the end of November. End of October would be even better.
Might be a slow week here on the blog, but that may not be a bad thing.
