Zeppelins

The Hugo-winning review zine Emerald City has very nice things to say about my novelette in the All-Star Zeppelin Stories anthology, which debuted on Halloween (and which you can get here):

"What really impressed me about the anthology was the consistent quality of all the stories... Every anthology, however, has a stand-out story. For me, this time, it is Ben Rosembaum's eccentrically titled "Biographical Notes to `A Discourse on the Nature of Causality, With Air-Planes' By Benjamin Rosenbaum"... The anthology has all sorts of fabulous re-imaginings of the airship, but there is nothing else to match Rosembaum's magnificent Hindu war-city....
    'Every cubit of its surface was bedecked with a facade of cytoceramic statuary couples coupling in five thousand erotic poses; theromorphic gods gesturing to soothe or menace; Rama in his chariot; heroes riddled with arrows and fighting on; saints undergoing matyrdom. In one corner I spotted the Israelite avatar of Vishnu, hanging on his cross between Shiva and Ganesh.'
Eat your heart out, Kim Stanley Robinson."

Heh. I liked that bit too. :-)

Dear Mr. Rosen;

Learn the perilous consequences of long titles over at http://www.clarkesworld.com/books/book_MOLALLZ.html

p.s. this probably looks like spam, but it is not.

Whatever you do, do not give a penny to UNICEF. They are corrupt thieves who use money given for charity to build spy satellites. Now why does a charity need a spy satellite? Food for oil? UN sex scandals left and right? UNRA supporting Hamas? That's where the money goes.

Give to the other groups - forget about UNICEF!

Chers Amis, chers Clients de Maprao Resort,
Un grand merci pour vos messages de sympathie, qui nous vont droit au coeur.
L'ile de Koh Phi Phi est partiellement ravagee (surtout le village et alentours).
Maprao Resort a encore eu plus de chance que bien d'autres 'resorts'.
A tous ceux qui nous demandent des nouvelles concernant nos santes respectives :
Tous les clients presents au moment de la catastrophe sont sains et saufs.
Tous les membres de notre personnel, sans exception, se portent bien. Ils ont ete merveilleux d'efficacite et de courage.
Les instructeurs de plongee Nikos et Lach sont indemnes (de justesse !), Miao (qui s'occupait du bar) egalement.
Notre fils Boris etait au Japon au moment du drame (est revenu en Thailande pour nous donner du renfort !).
Quant a nous, nous avons egalement echappe au tsunami (nous etions sur le ferry Phi Phi-Phuket et donc en mer...).
Les bungalows de Maprao Resort, construits sur la colline, sont entiers.
Par contre, il n'y a plus de terrasse, plus de 'dive shop', plus de Nirvana-bar de plage, plus de lobby, plus de restaurant, plus de reception... Tout cela a ete balaye en quelques secondes.
D'autres que nous, notamment au village, ont eu beaucoup moins de chance. Beaucoup de nos amis thais et etrangers ont ete emportes a tout jamais.
Maintenant, tous les rescapes a ete evacue vers Phuket ou Krabi et nous avons l'interdiction (temporaire) de revenir sur l'ile, a cause des risques d'epidemie.
Mais des que nous le pourrons, nous nous armerons de courage et reconstruirons.
Il faudra sans doute du temps, mais nous ne desesperons pas.
Merci pour les bonnes energies que vous nous envoyez.
