First of all, I wanted to note that the Nebula Award Nominees are out:
- The Native Star, M.K. Hobson (Spectra)
- The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, N.K. Jemisin (Orbit UK; Orbit US)
- Shades of Milk and Honey, Mary Robinette Kowal (Tor)
- Echo, Jack McDevitt (Ace)
- Who Fears Death, Nnedi Okorafor (DAW)
- Blackout/All Clear, Connie Willis (Spectra)
I’ll be getting to reading and let you know whether any of them are any good.
Second, I found out this morning that Nicholas Courtney died. Most people are probably unaware of him, but he played the Brigadier on Doctor Who in the 70s and has continued on in the role with bit parts and audio performances ever since. I wanted to drop this video in as a tribute to his time on the show. It’s mostly narrated by him, and it’s done up as a recruitment piece for the UNIT, the paramilitary group he was in charge of.
It IS a little long, so if you’re looking for something shorter, you could go with the A-Teamed up version.
