My military technology and history blog.
My favorite blogger because of his mastery of pop-culture, politics, humor, and his
throw-away references to AD&D and Traveller. He even remembers Gamma World. A fellow New Bostonian transplanted from
Hands down, the best column
writer on the Internet. His posts are essays and most are gems. A right-wing Garrison Keillor. Plus he knows how to toss
around a Star Trek reference like nobody's business.
John writes science-fiction novels and got his start in journalism. He also self-published
his first novel online before getting a real publishing deal, so I take an interest in what he has to say.
I don't know who she is. I don't know what she's doing now. But this resume of movie and book reviews
and author interviews is the work of a first-rate critical mind, comic talent, and gifted author. In particular, Alexandra's
movie reviews are peerless. Even if you don't much care about the movie she's critiquing, the reviews themselves
are great reads.
The blog of John Birmingham, an established Australian science-fiction writer specializing in alternate
history who is up-and-coming elsewhere. He blogs about the sausage-making of novel writing, including finding and agent and
a publisher. John is generous with his fans and free with his advice.
A collection of essays, tracts, and screeds written under a pseudonym by a unique opinion
columnist for the Asia Times. Spengler has risen to fame and infamy in the wake of the September 11 attacks on the US. He
paints with the largest of brushes and he scorns political correctness in all its forms. A breath of fresh air, even when
he repeats himself and extols his own virtues.
I like this Australian blogger a lot. He's witty, spot on, and he writes great headlines for his posts.
Noah Shactman is a rising star in military journalism. He talks the talk, and he
walks the walk. Read. Decide.
A far-ranging site devoted to defense and security issues, it is decidedly tolerent
in its embrace of opposing viewpoints and dissenting voices.
If you like your social and political commentary served with reason,
wit, and Catholicism, this is the place for you. Fear not: The Anchoress is firmly rooted -- anchored, if you will --
in the traditions of the Western Enlightenment.
The website of Australian science fiction author and editor Jonathan Strahan. He has regular dialogues
with readers on a variety of science-fiction topics.
