SPEAKING FOR BOSKONE

We are watching the West Wing, again. Because we like it. I get a kick out of the little tricks they play with apple. In the show, somehow, the apple is always shown upside down. I think they have some sort of animus for apple. Heaven knows why. Still, it took some effort on somebody's part to keep showing the apple upside down on different laptops.

    1. I was more a Vortex blaster but it's nice to have people who know the references I toss in here from time to time.

  2. I particularly enjoyed "Spacehounds of the IPC." Even as a very much younger reader I thought it combined elements of both "Swiss Family Robinson" and "Robinson Crusoe," and set the castaway story into a science fiction mold.

    1. There is an age to read E.E. Smith. Hit it right and the story stays alive all your life. I can still read Skylark of Space anytime I want. As with Arthur Ransome, we caught it just right when we 10 going on a milllion.

  3. Yesterday I dug up Spacehounds on Project Gutenberg, and I will be giving it a reread.
    I am looking forward to finding out if the mid sixties me will enjoy it as much as the much younger me.

    1. I've been trying to recall from memory the name of the protagonist. Costigan, Costello but planet Nemia and the hematology is still there. I think.
