Patreon Microfiction: ‘Zoning Meetings.’

Patreon!

“Zoning Meeting” implies several things, I feel. The first one being, “What if they don’t actually want them?” That’s an interesting question to answer differently, I think.

A good Saturday.

Kids are off in the hands of their aunts, Mom was taken out for a really, really good seafood dinner, my wife and I went out for very good beers from a new brewpub in my hometown, and I’m going to bed early. All in all, relaxing. See you tomorrow.

Book of the Week: Chain of Command.

Baen just released Frank Chadwick’s military SF Chain of Command in paperback, so I thought that I’d check it out. Good stuff: straightforward thrust-into-the-limelight space combat that had the grace to finish up the story without forcing the need for a sequel. Not that I have any objections to series, but it’s nice sometimes to read a book that can rise or fall on its own.

Light posting this Easter weekend.

For no doubt obvious reasons. Going to see the family for an overnight, get the aunts and Nana their kids-time in. Also, the change of scenery will do us all a world of good, methinks.

So, posting catch as catch can and I’m not gonna sweat it. Have a good holiday break, under whatever circumstances!

Blue Origin going to Huntsville for some rocket-testing.

I originally wrote ‘rocketeering,’ but that would have had the wrong connotations.

One of Huntsville’s historic Apollo engine test stands is coming back to life under an agreement between NASA and Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin space company.

NASA announced Wednesday it has signed an agreement to let Blue Origin use Marshall Test Stand 4670 to test its BE-3U and BE-4 rocket engines. The BE-4 has been selected to power United Launch Alliance’s new Vulcan rocket and Blue’s New Glenn rocket.

Via Instapundit.

Huntsville, where we keep the rocketmen; and [the rest of this sentence has been redacted in the interest of national security]. There are three seasons in Alabama: hot and rainy, just hot, and just rainy. Just as happy to skip that, thanks.

The ‘Jinn’ Netflix series teaser trailer.

Come, I will conceal nothing: I clicked on the video, certain that Jinn was just going to be some stupid foreign language drama about the blindingly insightful revelation that it sucks to be an adolescent all over the world.

Item Seed: The Hellsbane Spatula.

Hellsbane Spatula

Description: a thirteen inch cake spreader with what appears to be an eight inch stainless steel blunt blade and rubberized grip.  The Hellsbane Spatula is apparently immune to impact, corrosion, breakage, and all Earthly environmental conditions, up to and including being immersed in a lava flow.

Powers: The Hellsbane Spatula has the same effect on demonic entities as a functional chainsaw has on unarmored human flesh; only with less blood, and more spontaneous combustion.
