Hi, it's Lucky. I'm a day late, but I'm here, and I'm finally over my cold. I'd like to thank Phenny the Phoenix, who kindly dribbled chicken soup into my bowl while I was sick. Deej, on the other hand, just ignored me.
Here's my lastest news gatherings:
NEW GENE WOLFE COLLECTION
A more-or-less new collection of Gene Wolfe's short fiction, The Best of Gene Wolfe, is out (it's been out for a few months, but we move slow here). You can read a review at Boston.com.
FINALISTS FOR BRITISH FANTASY AWARDS
The list is out and available over at Locus.
BEN BOVA ON ETHANOL
According to Ben Bova's column, ethanol derived from corn, when used for fuel, produces more carbon-dioxide than gasoline. When I told the Deej, he nodded and said, "There's only one thing I want to do with ethanol."
BORDERS SF BLOG
Borders, as in the bookstore, has a new blog on science fiction. An article on the subject is here at PR Newswire, and the blog itself is here.
Slow news day? Associated Content discusses what it would take to put the city of Houston under a dome. I thought Atlanta was supposed to be the southern city to get a dome.
