Revealed! The cover of RADICALIZED, my next book of science fiction

On March 19, Tor Books will release my next book, Radicalized, whose four novellas are the angry, hopeful stories I wrote as part of my attempt to make sense of life in our current moment. As with my novel Walkaway and the reissues of my adult backlist, Radicalized will have a cover by the amazing Will Stahle, who is, for my money, the best cover designer working in the business at the moment. Today, Tor has published Stahle's cover for Radicalized, and holy fucking shit, is it ever great...

Scenes from a Nursery Trade Show

The Mid-Atlantic Nursery Trade Show is happening in Baltimore this week, and garden communicators (formerly “writers”) were there in droves! Here we all are at the breakfast event for media. Well, here they all are – I’d already started canvassing the vendor booths for familiar faces and interesting stuff to post about. GardenRanter Scott Beuerlein was there, too and he’s actually in the photo – back row, right of center. So who should I spot right away but these titans of the ...

Kitchen of the Week: Two Young Paris Architects Completely Redo Their Kitchen for Under $4,300

Medieval book opens six ways, revealing six different texts

A XVIth Century book held in the National Library of Sweden's collection features a "sixfold dos-a-dos binding," meaning that the book could be opened in six different ways to reveal six different texts ("devotional texts printed in Germany during the 1550s and 1570s,including Martin Luther, Der kleine Catechismus"), with the hinges doubling as latches. You may remember a blog I posted about dos-à-dos (or “back-to-back”) books. These are very special objects consisting of usually two book...

Christmas 2018: Not the Worst of Times

Merry Christmas U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- “Deck the halls with boughs of holly,” goes the old Christmas carol. “‘Tis the season to be jolly.” Yet if there were a couplet less befitting the mood of this capital city, I am unaware of it.“The wheels are coming off,” was a common commentary on the Trump presidency on Sunday's talk shows. And the ostensible causes of what is looking like a panic in the political establishment?The December crash of the stock and bond markets, the worst since the Grea...

Santa’s Immaculate Conception and his Food for Thought

With my next post on Garden Rant officially due December 24, my first thought was a treatise on what Santa Claus might plant in his garden at the North Pole, where it gets about 24 hours of sun in the summer. Would Mrs. Claus be putting The Big Guy on a home-grown diet of celery, carrots and peanut butter to better enable him to complete his world-wide deliveries in a 24-hour period? Would excited children leave a few million carrots for Dasher, Dancer, Prancer and the gang on Christm...

Pittsburgh Gun Control Plan And AR-15s

Paul Muschick: The reaction to my recent column supporting Pittsburgh’s proposed ban on assault weapons, and calling for a similar ban statewide, was predictable. There was a passionate and often vile backlash from gun owners who cited the Constitution’s Second Amendment and argued it forbids government from interfering with their right to own firearms. I was called a traitor, a parasitic person, a shoddy hack, a fool, a Marxist, a leftist reporter, a libtard, a dumb $%& liberal and so on. Sever...

Bob Chilcott shares his memories of Sir David Willcocks

I joined King’s College Choir as a boy treble in 1964. This was a time of real energy in the media, recording and concert world, and this possibly brought a different kind of perspective to David’s work with the choir. There were a number of firsts for the choir around this time. In 1965 we made our first stereo recording for EMI Records. The album, Sing Praises, included carols from a new publication entitled The Cambridge Hymnal. David turned up with brown Xeroxed copies of a new arrangement o...

Making music American: a playlist from 1917

The entrance of the United States into World War I on 6 April 1917 inspired a flood of new music from popular songwriters. Simultaneously, the first recording of instrumental jazz was released in April 1917, touching off a fad for the new style and inspiring record companies to promote other artists before year’s end. Victor and Columbia, the industry leaders, developed technological innovations that made possible the first recordings of a full symphony orchestra. These recordings are a sample o...

Frankfurt airport: purchase Tolino eReader? (long shot question)

Kind of a long-shot, but maybe I'll get lucky... We are flying into Frankfurt airport in a couple weeks and then immediately driving to Poland to spend Christmas with friends. We originally thought we'd have a couple of days in Germany to do some shopping beforehand, so I had planned on finding a bookstore somewhere to purchase a Tolino eReader (which our friend's wife wants for Christmas - seems to be the best eReader for German libraries). So any chance someone here would know if I have a c...
