In lieu of writing something interesting, I present several recent articles that caught my eye:
New York State of Mensa: Greater New York Mensa’s first podcast. The hosts are wonderful, bubbly, and real. They make the reader want to meet and get to know them. (And I can’t fault the fact that they mentioned me no fewer than four times ). Actually, my only quibble is with Sara’s pronunciation of the organization’s name: I always pronounce Mensa with an “s”, but she uses a “z” sound for that fourth letter.

Gardner Dozois and Sheila Williams Named SFWA Solstice Award Recipients: Sheila hired me as the editorial assistant at Asimov’s when she was Managing Editor and Gardner was editor. They’re wonderful, and wonderfully deserving, people.
