I won’t be at Horrorfind Weekend this year. My first miss in a while. And I will miss it, it’s become a great weekend for hanging with good friends and drinking. Oh, and selling books.
Speaking of if you are there, hit the Die Monster Die! table. You can pick up all three Strange Angel volumes, they might have some copies of Crazy Little Thing laying around and more.
Of course, you can also go and buy a copy of The Dead Walk Again. Zombies! Lots of zombie fiction, including a story by me. The first one of these was a best seller at Shocklines and the single biggest zombie book at the Horrorfind it debuted at.
So you might want to buy one now, just in case – I’m not sure how many will be making it to the show, frankly. But people are already wanting copies. So.
If you are going to Horrorfind, have a drink for me.
In other news: We now have levitation, according to the Telegraph.
(from the start of the article, click above to read the rest)
Levitation has been elevated from being pure science fiction to science fact, according to a study reported today by physicists.
In earlier work the same team of theoretical physicists showed that invisibility cloaks are feasible.
Now, in another report that sounds like it comes out of the pages of a Harry Potter book, the University of St Andrews team has created an ‘incredible levitation effects’ by engineering the force of nature which normally causes objects to stick together.
Professor Ulf Leonhardt and Dr Thomas Philbin, from the University of St Andrews in Scotland, have worked out a way of reversing this pheneomenon, known as the Casimir force, so that it repels instead of attracts.
Their discovery could ultimately lead to frictionless micro-machines with moving parts that levitate But they say that, in principle at least, the same effect could be used to levitate bigger objects too, even a person.
So where is my hover board?
They can start to levitate shit now, right?
I mean, they said they can!
So where is it? I want a hover board. Right the fuck now.
You can keep the damn shoes, I never liked those shoes.
But I demand my right, as an American, to kill myself while floating on plastic. I demand this right!
Build me a hover board!
