I missed this excellent comment by Haley the first time around.
Ancient engineering and mathematics expressed in engines of war.
An Ars Technica article about climate that isn’t credulous moonbattery. Gaia be praised.
Shame the Beta Month. Heck, make it a year.
Archive.org’s preservation of inchoatus.com, a dead website that used to publish conservativish, libertarianish, Christianish reviews of science fiction and fantasy. Orson Scott Card is lazy. The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant is deep and profound. Michael Flynn’s Firestar series is brilliant (it really is). Cryptonomicon is more gold than gold. If you like those, you should read all of the Gene Wolfe reviews. Then you should read all of Gene Wolfe.
