New Vinge - Rainbow's End
Ah, well, may as well wait, I think the list of urgent "to-reads" is over 100 books now, and the last few months have seen an excess of very good new books (new GRRM! Simmons! etc and so forth).
Speculations on astronomy, astrophysics, news I find interesting,
theoretical issues, science and science policy.
In particular: gravitational radiation sources, black holes, planets and astrobiology.
I will digress into computational physics, science fiction and general issues and basically whatever I feel like whenever.
And, of course, cats.
