The Advantages of the BwB

BWB REALITIES

I was standing in a bookshop the other day, perusing a rather tiny SF section. "I know all these people," I said. A lie, of course. But I had met and chatted to a good half of them at Brotherhood Without Banners parties.

It's only when you see them all there together and tot them up that you realize... Roll on WorldCon 2014 for the next one!

STORY STILL AVAILABLE

People are saying some really lovely things about my story The Sunshine Baron in the forum of Podcastle.org. Why not have a sneaky listen? I guarantee that you will love it more than your children, especially if you don't have any.

Yeah, that's always a good feeling. It reminds me of one of Kate Hudson's lines from Almost Famous: "if you ever get lonely, just go to the record store and visit your friends. "

What a great line, although for some it may intensify the loneliness :-)

True enough.

Right now, it's mostly making me want to watch Almost Famous again.

I love the moment when they hear Tiny Dancer after an argument and they can't help singing and making up...

That is one of many, many fantastic moments.

When you said "alarmed", did you mean "tasty"?

Ah, but I have a stranger benchmark: my wife has two kids. Will I love it more than them?

Individually, yes. As a group? That will take more research...

I will need to see the results before risking it!

Ah, but my results will be based on experimental subjects such as yourself...
