First, yeah...sorry about the break in the blog. I don't like summer. It saps me. My brain just doesn't work as well, creatively or intellectually. I rarely can read in the summer anything of any depth. Writing just isn't there. So, I do yard work, house work, work work, goof off, and watch movies in the summer. But, there is a sense of impending Autumn which I mark with a resumption of this blog. And hopefully more work on things like The Yule Siege (which I hope to finish this year) and other projects. On the publishing side: I'm taking a little hiatus to keep things simple for the divorce. Though, I have submitted Dancer to a publisher who is having an open solicitations period for unagented works.
So, anyway, about ten days ago I stumbled upon this list:
A list of the 25 best science fiction films since the year 2000. I've seen most, but I hadn't seen any of the top four. Last week I caught Children of Men which was #1 and this week I've seen #2 Upstream Color and #3 Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I'll be writing reviews under the subheading 25BestSFMovies21stCentury.
