You’ve managed to reach the city of Baltimore/Tucson/Yourtownville, where you’ve hooked up with a small team of survivors. They’ve fortified four blocks. A suburb, an apartment, a police station, and a farm. Some of your camp-mates are fighters, some are builders, some are scavengers, leaders, or scientists. The undead are everywhere. You can only survive if you […]
Just taking a moment to share a beautiful and brilliant bit of fiction from K Tempest Bradford. Until Forgiveness Comes is up on Strange Horizons, and it’s a very good short story about the anniversary of 9/11. A lot of 9/11 fiction (both pro and con) tends to descend into bombast and political screeds. In the years following 9/11, […]

Miguel de Icaza has called Dropbox to task over their disingenuous statements regarding file security. Basically, Dropbox promised us that our files were safe from prying […]
This is a post about my birthday. If you do not know me in person, you can safely ignore this post. If you know me in person, you can safely ignore this post must pay attention.
Credit where credit is due. You’d think with all my complaining that I should just ditch my PA feeds in favor of greener pastures. I don’t. A cynic might say that I’m basically trolling, that I’m looking for opportunities to complain about an entity that neither cares for my existence nor is admonished by my […]
