It’s rather annoying. A lot of people I know are talking about the HBO documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief and I haven’t seen it yet. I live in Northern Canada, and we just don’t get the same access to stuff that those in the south get. But I’ve heard it is […]
David Brin A long time ago (BK – Before Kids) I was lucky enough to meet David Brin at Ad Astra, the Toronto Science Fiction convention. It’s easy to meet people who have opinions. It isn’t often that you meet someone smart enough to explain to you exactly why the opinion is right. David […]

If so, you’ll earn my undying gratitude for all of five minutes (I have a short attention span). Regards Wayne Borean Sunday February 5, 2012 […]

I’m also recuperating from fixing my computer, and other stuff. No, it didn’t include a hangover. I gave up drinking twenty-five years ago, and I have to admit I’m surprised that Molson’s Breweries didn’t go when I did.
Here’s something that should have horror fans shivering in their boots. John Manning is editing an anthology titled “What Scares the Boogeyman” for Perseid Publishing! Since John is a friend of mine, I prevailed upon him to send me some of the stories he has accepted for publication. Folks, you are in for a treat! […]
