Some Cool New Stuff

Our gradually growing bars on the right are gradually growing:

Check out The B-Movie Catechism. This guy is, like, my doge. He does much of what we do here, only his focus is on B movies. His reviews are awesome, giving further evidence to my hypothesis that highly intelligent individuals prefer lousy films. Incidentally, I owe him for that neato countdown to the Robot Apocalypse widget.

We've also added Calls for Cthulhu to the Sci Fi Blogroll. If you don't know your Lovecraft, you won't get it. If you do know your Lovecraft, it's hilarious. If you take your Lovecraft way, way too seriously, you'll hate it. If you ask, "Is Lovecraft a dirty book?" Ray Bradbury beat you to that joke.

John C. Wright's Online Journal has been way overdue for our Sci Fi Blogs list. Not only is the man a Christian convert and sf writer, he is dang funny.

You may note, also, a new Catholic Blogs search engine and daily Mass readings under the Catholic Blogs list. Why, you ask? Well, partly because I like cool widgets, but also: the first is for convenience, and the second is because this blog is about reading and the daily Mass readings are a way to read with the Church.

And thanks to our good friend at Claw of the Conciliator for pointing out the new entry to the Sci Fi Resources. It seems Project Gutenburg has a bunch of old public domain sf available on the web, so you can read all the great stuff from before your time. Me, I'm going to see if they have a copy of "The Machine Stops." That story was awesome, anticipating post-acceleration sf by, like, a century.
