Saturday Miscellany—10/19/19

Odds ‘n ends over the week about books and reading that caught my eye. You’ve probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:

    This Week’s New Release I’m Excited About and/or You’ll Probably See Here Soon (I probably missed a few, but…):

  • Ghosts of You by Cathy Ulrich—this flash fiction collection is compelling, haunting, and thought-provoking (and includes some really good reading, too). My post about it describes the book better.

Lastly, I’d like to say hi and extend a warm welcome to kbbookreviewer, _forbookssake, thelostwoman, amanja and Steven Colborne /a> for following the blog this week. Don’t be a stranger, and use that comment box, would you?

  1. …use that comment box, would you?

    How’s that working out for you? With your comment mod on I almost exclusively deal with any back and forth with you through the notification bar so I never come back to see if anyone else has said something else.

    As for that 21 Best Ever SF, phhhhhhhh. Bunch of pandering woke pansies wrote the majority of that list! 😉

      Not well, honestly.

      You really don’t like that moderation, do you? 🙂 I may try lifting it to see if it helps (on a former blog, I got hammered hard with porn spam and spam in general, made me gun shy)

      When I said hard to argue against, I clearly forgot to take the Bookstooge into consideration 🙂

      1. I’m sorry to hear that. However, one observation I’ve found is that it takes comments to get comments, or have commentsy type followers 😉

        No, I don’t. I completely understand why you do it though. 99% of my spam gets caught by wordpress’s akismet thingamajig AND I don’t have a straightup dotcom site, which makes me wonder about ever switching over. Are you WP dotcom or dotorg hosted?

        😀 😀 😀
