  • Blog Birthday

    This blog is seven years old today!

  • Happy New Year 2022

    …we’ll see how this one goes… What have I got planned for 2022 blog-wise? Bond songs. Lots of blogs have done Bond-film rewatches, and done it better than I would. I’ve never written much about music, so this is a weird and cheesy way to start. All the Bond themes in order and then ranked. […]

  • Book Launch: The Hugosauriad

    Two hundred and fifty two million years in the making, a book that spans geological eras, astronomical bodies colliding, and people getting upset at award ceremonies. Space! Big game hunters! A surprising number of priests! Atheist therapods! This is a book that has everything but a simple premise! Let’s go back to the beginning. The […]

  • Homunculus Cartographer

    The newer of the two big-project things for next weeks blogiversary finale week is the insufficiently-long novel (aka the MEGA-novella) Homunculus Cartographer. What is it? It is a serial story with its own blog with its own exciting URL which is and it is sort of in a blog format (mainly because that’s what […]

  • Ten Days, Five Years

    Ten Days, Five Years

    This month has been blogiversary month and the party is still going. May 29th is the official five years since the very first post on this blog ( ) and we have two big-ticket items to come. Sometime next week will be the book launch for ebook version of The Hugosauriad. I’m really excited by […]

  • Certantibus in medio catulorum: May 2015

    Certantibus in medio catulorum: May 2015

    I mangled Latin using Google Translate when I put together a timeline of the Puppy Debarkle. The problem is, I have no idea what I was trying to say with some of these tags, other than to give sections of the timeline a portentous feel. I think maybe it was an attempt at “certainly this […]

  • Whatever happened to Voxopedia?

    Whatever happened to Voxopedia?

    In 2018 I wrote one of my occasional posts about “Infogalactic” aka Voxopedia, saying: “Yes, the shambling undead creature assembled from rotting remains of articles discarded by Wikipedia continues to lurch through the countryside occasionally gurgling the word “brrraainnss” (or is it “editorrrrsss”). Somehow it is still not dead despite being edited by a tiny […]

  • Blogiversary: A different selection

    Blogiversary: A different selection

    In an earlier post I went through the year-by-year greatest hits i.e. the posts per year that had the highest traffic. Of course, a lot of those were driven by issues of the day and so posts commenting on bookish/fannish news dominate. I wanted to do a different list. Not personal favourites but still posts […]

The actual blogiversary day is May 29. The week prior will be the second big book launch! Yes! TWO BOOKS! The long […]

  • Blogiversary: Greatest Hits

    Blogiversary: Greatest Hits

    Five years of all this nonsense but what nonsense were people reading and when? I’m down here in the archive stacks of Felapton Towers and blowing the dust off the weird old filing cabinets to find out. These posts are just the numbers-game hits rather than special favourites and often other factors drove the traffic […]
