Weekly Journal December 6-12

I like more to talk about the future than the past. That is probably one of the reasons I like science fiction. My pick of books for January will be out on Wednesday. We will see what else I’ll do this week. In the last rush before the holidays, I will focus on finishing work and preparing a little  secret project.

Notable posts this week

I continued my series on upcoming books with The State of Books and a new Almanac of forthcoming SF Books (January 2011-2012). You can also read about Embassytown by China Mieville.

On the televion front read all about the TV Development Report December 2010 and in particular Alphas Ordered to Series
