Re: The End Of The World 2033

You may remember predictions that the world would end thirteen years ago on May 21, 2011. If not here is a summary. Well it turns out that organization, the eBible Fellowship, learned zero lessons from that debacle, is still at it, and is now predicting the end of the world in 2033! Here's a series...

Re: Murmur reviews short stories

I read some online critiques of The Night Land . It looks like people really dislike it a lot. The stuff I read reminded me of some of the flaws in The Night Land which are: Hodgson was tediously repetitive in parts. This is true. Hodgson included fiddly details in parts where he didn't need to. Thi...

Re: If you could live inside a book, which one would it be?

Rather than writing about a book, I'll talk about a tv series. Star Trek. The Star Trek universe seems less dangerous than other universes, such as Star Wars or Lord of the Rings, and space exploration would be fascinating.

Re: ARTificial Intelligence

A while back, I started making a custom campaign for the game Arkham Horror the Card Game. I needed a ton of art for it. I decided to try AI generated art. Some of the art looked super cool but most of it was useless. Overall, I liked it a lot. I actually got a sense that I was the one creating the ...

Re: Murmur reviews short stories

I reread the non-poetry part of Eyes of the God , the collection of RH Barlow stories. I despised his poems the first time I read this book so I didn't reread them this time. More notes regarding the individual stories. The Slaying of the Monster - Written with HP Lovecraft. This story is superb and...

Keller Memento: 25 Years of David H. Keller David H Keller was a contemporary of HP Lovecraft. He wrote speculative fiction; in other words, sci fi, horror, drama, etc. I read his book immediately after reading RH Barlow's book, and I immediately noticed that Keller has a prose style that has a lot...
