Dead Dog Cat

#2, 3

Over the last couple of days, I've finished reading two books.

The first was written by Algis Budrys, and is called Writing to the Point: A Complete Guide to Selling Fiction, which has some good points about story construction, and manuscript preparation in it. It's a very small book and a quick read.

Another quick read which I got out of the library was The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett, which is a short novel about QEII finding a mobile library while she was out recapturing her dogs. The Queen borrows a book, and starts in on reading in wholesale fashion, and the book describes what happens next. Humorous.

Last night we put on a Netflix disc of ST:DS9 season six, and we watched two of the episodes, including a pretty remarkable one that compared the early 1950s with the era of Star Trek to the credit of the future, especially in regards to color issues. Excellent episode in that it made you stop to think how far we've come in the last three generations.
