Assorted fun

Happy May/Loyalty Day!

Richard K Morgan's Thirteen won the Arthur C Clarke Award for best science fiction or fantasy novel. Huzzah! You might want to put prior award winners on your science fiction reading list.

Beautiful Swimmers is a book I remember seeing on my parent's bookshelves, but never read myself. It concerns the blue crabs of the Chesapeake Bay, a species gravely imperiled today. Some of my favorite memories of living near the Bay are of catching blue crabs off my grandmother's pier. The author, William Warner, died this week from complications related to Alzheimer's. Now would be a good time to pick the book up.

Here is a creepy story about a possible serial killer spree.

Not all nerds are like this, I swear.
