Luck and good dice. It's a little bit like growing seedlings for the garden. It's best not to get too attached until they've gotten past that sproutling stage.

It's brilliant. It's horrible. It's tragically necessary.

It was a weirdly popular sub-genre, the idea that population growth was A PROBLEM, totally accepted wisdom in sci fi. When I’m feeling cranky I wonder if John W. Campbell had a hand in it.

You can see just how DESPERATE these people were to escape ... well, cities full of brown people, and flee to idyllic empty suburbs.

I went back & reread that & several other hilariously stupid stories, some dating back to the 1950s which were TERRIFIED of a world with 4 billion people ... which would be a crammed inescapable urban environment where no one could breathe.

Got mine a couple of weeks ago. I think they got it to me early because I had surgery and it got bundled in (“Hey, would you like a flu shot as long as you’re here?” “Heck, yeah!”)

Yes! I’m not tall but I am an illustrator and I began to wonder if I was going crazy because I kept seeing these illos of tall women with dinky feet and I kept wondering, Am I making mine too big?

That seems rather to diminish the notion of “cartoonish.”

You’re Jessica Mitford? (A genuinely weird family, but “Hons and Rebels” was a fond read once upon a time)

Endearing, I would say, which seems funny for an ostensibly emotionless cyborg

I love how colourful this is. Because most of the paint and colours has faded and vanished from castle and church walls and from clothing or because many of us just think of that era as dark and grey, it is great to be reminded they loved colour as much as most of us do.

I daydreamed about dyeing fabrics, but I never got round to it. Instead I hammered mineral samples until they were small enough pieces to pound in a mortar and then grind to pigments to make paints. And then spent years warning people off the really toxic ones. Oy.
