  1. Strange things you've read

    Thanks to all the great public domain stuff out there on the Web, I recently read a wonderful booklet from the early 20th Century called "Farming with Dynamite". This fine publication of the Dupont corporation is a gold mine of information about...

  2. Some thoughts on reading H.P. Lovecraft

    After decades of reading practically nothing by Lovecraft, I recently went on a bit of a binge (helped by the fact that just about everything he wrote is in the public domain and available for free on my iPad). I've pretty much hit my limit...

  5. The Hunger Games films

    Fye5Nwe4qeI Marsilia got me hooked on the Hunger Game series of books and now the first of the movies is coming out this spring. I'm geekily excited about it, because sci-fi with a strong, young female lead isn't exactly a plentiful genre.
