Mike Resnick, The Outpost

Mike Resnick's The Outpost was as disappointing to me as The Return of Santiago. Essentially, this is a collection of tall tales told by figures of the wild west. Except the wild west is in space. I guess he is trying to say something about history and who records it. But the problem to me is that the stories themselves become tiresome.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
