John Varley is the first SF Author we ever interviewed on this site  ( http://www.republibot.com/content/interview-john-varley ) and one of my favorite writers (Despite some flat-out disturbing stuff in some of his books and short stories). How good a writer is he? He can piss me off to the point where I feed one of his books to a fish, then eat the fish, and yet I still come back for more.

Falling Skies: "Drawing Straws" (Season 4, Episode 10)

 

Use the Light in Your Mind, Luke. The Light in Your Mind will be with you always, Luke…   um, I mean Lexi.

Yeah, it’s that blatant. Lexi’s a Jedi now. She’s mastered The Light in Her Mind, which allows her to tap into the atomic structure behind all forces. No word on the midichlorian count yet. But at least she does get to kill her tall, skinny Yoda.

Planetes – pronounced “Plan-eat-ease” – is the Greek word from which our word “Planet” is derived. It doesn’t actually mean that, though, it means “Wanderers.” This is what the ancients used to call the visible planets: “Wandering stars.” The Epistle of Jude even mentions this in the Bible, in a one-off reference.

The Legend Of Korra, Book 3: Changes: What Went Wrong? [SPOILERS!]

Kevin Long's picture

Just watched the two-part season (And probably series) finale of "The Legend of Korra" last night while recovering from my hosptital. I'll admit I was pretty emotionally raw, and the only digital device I had to watch it on was a 3DS, but even so it brought me to the edge of tears on occasion. It is undoubtly the best example of over-the-top gonzo action/drama/awesomeness produced by the Avatar franchise since "The Siege of the North" in the original "Airbender" series.
