Charlie and his horse

Charlie Stross of Colder War (follow the link to read it online) fame has some interesting stuff on his blog at the moment, which is not to say that the rest of it is dull. First there's a piece on Amazon reviews of famous books. For example, about One Hundred Years of Solitude we have this gem:

At best, Marquez reveals an egalitarian attitude that seems to pervade the Americas south of the Rio Grande (no wonder those countries are in constant economic trouble). Marquez should study supply side economics as described by Milton Friedman, another Nobel Prize winner, in order to give his book better balance.

And there are many more.

The October 20th post is about the apparently parlous state of SF at the moment (6% of market share) and What Is To Be Done. It seems in many ways similar to the problems with roleplaying. Charlie has a plan. Read it. And read some of his fiction too. SF needs you!
