Here are four developments of interest to fans:
(1) Reading this reminds me how E. E. “Doc” Smith begins the Lensman Series:
Two planets about 300 light years from Earth slammed into each other recently, US astronomers said Tuesday, the first time evidence of such a catastrophic collision has been seen by scientists.
“Doc” Smith’s opening line is:
“Two thousand million or so years ago two galaxies were colliding; or, rather, were passing through each other.”
(2) The Los Angeles Times sf blog “Hero Complex” has interesting posts on the new Hitchhkers Guide to the Galaxy novel, and “A.D. – After the Deluge,” a comic inspired by Hurricane Katrina.
(3) The site that hosts Tom Perry’s article “Take Back Your Government” has a great collection of other articles about Heinlein.
(4) Isaac Alexander asks, “Do you nominate and vote for the Hugo Awards? Then you might be interested in checking out the wikis at http://www.sfartistwatch.com and http://www.sfeditorwatch.com.”
