The Usual Rant from the Aphelion Senior Editor
I don't really have a rant in me for this issue. Itsway late, but personal stuff kept getting in the way of my putting the
issue together. Sorry folks, but that's life. I did manage to break a
word-barrier during my last good writing session on my Nightwatch
story. The current edited draft runs 40,481 words. It is now a novel.
First time I've ever been able to reach that sort of word-count. But,
it still isn't finished. I still have lots left to do. I hope it turns
out all right.
Someone e-mailed me what I thought was the perfect ending scene for the
last episode of Enterprise: As the camera pulls back from Archer for
the last time, he is surrounded by an electrical corona- which then
brightens to a whiteout... And then Dr. Sam Becket finally leaps back
into his own body, inside the Imaging Chamber of Project Quantum Leap.
LOL! I thought that one was pretty cool.
From all reports, the BBC TV version of Hitchhiker's
Guide is still the best one to watch. The new version doesn't seem to
work for most of the fans who've been vocal with their opinions. I've
read nothing but bad reviews of it. On the other hand, people who have
never heard of HHGG before seem to enjoy it. Maybe it will even out.
I've been catching up on my reading for my book
reviews, too. Look for those to start popping up here in Aphelion in
the near future. As well as all sorts of other updates in the other
areas of the website. Its time I got busy catching up on everything.
I now return you to your regularly scheduled reading...
