Bonnie Hammer is the Bunion of Fandom  
I swear, does this woman never go away? Can't she go mess with, I don't know, the Biography Channel? More than a decade after the crap she pulled with Forever Knight, she's still a thorn in the side of fandom.

'Masters Of Science Fiction'  
Interesting...

The creators of anthology series "Masters of Science Fiction" revealed the program was always meant to be a gamble of sorts, which they and ABC will soon see will either pay off or go bust when it premieres Aug. 4.

The hour-long show, narrated by famous Cambridge University physicist Dr. Stephen Hawking, tells classic sci-fi tales by famed writers such as Robert Heinlein and Harlan Ellison, and features notable actors such as Anne Heche, Malcolm McDowell ("Star Trek: Generations"), John Hurt, Brian Dennehy ("Cocoon"), Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings trilogy), Terry O'Quinn ("Lost") and Sam Waterston. Directors include two Academy Award nominees, Mark Rydell and Michael Petroni, as well as Jonathan Frakes, best known to genre audiences as Cmdr. William T. Riker in "Star Trek: The Next Generation."

Heh  
I've been reading the SFWA comm (it's been like a really rowdy panel at a con), and the short version was one of their elected persons berating published authours who put their writing up on the web for free. That's the very short version. So, in amongst all this, he called such persons "Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Wretchs". So of course, people made t-shirts. They're very cute!

I've Watched & I've Read  
Jen loaned me her Blood Ties books, and I've read the first one, and have also now watched the first two episodes. I have to say, as a besotted Forever Knight fan, it is extremely weird seeing the establishing shots of Toronto, especially as it's a vampire show too. The other weird thing is a TV show that has the same title as my Forever Knight/Highlander fic series. Keeps making me do a double take. Henry doesn't look anything like I visualized from the book, but that's not to say he isn't extremely and totally cute. It isn't a bad show over all, though it's very much like Dresden Files in some ways. It's strange how you have zero TV in this vein, and now you have two of them, with others on the horizon. Feast or famine, I guess.

The upshot is I'll start watching the show, and read the rest of the books.
