Congratulations, we made it to another Friday!
A couple of new books I’m looking forward to:
First, there’s a new Temeraire novel out! Crucible of Gold, the seventh book in Naomi Novik’s series about the Napoleonic Wars with dragons, came out in Canada and the US this week. How did I not hear about this earlier? I’ve read five of the six books so far and am super excited to see how the series continues.
general geekery and science
The Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence continues, and SETI wants your brainpower.
What sank the Titanic? An iceberg, yes. But why was the iceberg even there? High tides, say scientists.
for writers (and interested third parties)
Justine Musk writes about the art of being fearless.
Melissa Crytzer Fry warns of the dangers of writing outdoors for inspiration.
That’s it for this week. Come back on Monday to talk some more about books!
