Coincidence, Classics, Connections And Canal

Another coincidence: there was a humorous play by Val McDermid on the radio yesterday evening. As a character in Alan Moore's Swamp Thing said, "Take it up with the guys in the Fate and Destiny Department!"

I suppose you are wondering what my next six "classic" sf novels will be? So am I. Meanwhile, however, Poul Anderson's output is so comprehensive that, although I did not set out to do so, it was an easy matter to show connections between his works and the first six titles listed.

I will shortly go out for some exercise along Lancaster canal (see image) so will not be blogging for a while.

Kaor, Paul!

About all I can think of for commenting on this blog piece is how much Dominic Flandry HATED the rigorous daily regimen of calisthenics he went thru every day. Both because it was practical for his often physically strenuous work and because of vanity.
