Obviously I could download all and then delete, or go to each entry and cut and paste, but that seems inelegant.
I sort of have an idea what it represents, but the coastal bit doesn't quite fit.
- Isaac Asimov
- Alfred Bester
- Leigh Brackett
- Ray Bradbury
- Arthur C. Clarke
- Robert A. Heinlein
- Andre Norton
- Theodore Sturgeon
- A.E. van Vogt
- Jack Williamson
Naomi Mitchinson is a separate issue - she's not exactly first/agenda sf.
There's one Edmond Hamilton story, which I think I can skip over, Hubbard is busy, ah, I probably need to think about Jack Vance. I just wonder if I've missed the bleeding obvious.
9900 / 100000 words. 10% done!
You'll know the kind of thing - famous/infamous/notorious
"Robert de Niro famously played Travis Bickle."
"Robert de Niro infamously played Travis Bickle."
"Robert de Niro notoriously played Travis Bickle."
Defiantly for definitely:
"Robert de Niro is defiantly a good actor."
"The Americans have the right to bare arms."
"Paddington is bearly an illegal immigrant."
"Its' there birthday so their over they're"
If you have any gems and bugbears (bugbares?) to share I'd be grateful.
There's something odd here - I'm not convinced it's a real name because I'm not convinced it's written by a woman, or if it is by a woman I suspect a background in Harlequin Romances. It is copyright the publisher rather than her.
This is a quote from the novel as it appears in Ghastly Beyond Belief:
"This body was built for intercontinental hauling and had the apparatus that was made for endurance. It had everything a man could want in a woman. It was the wanton, uncivilised body that all men had longed to possess since the days of the cave man. It exuded purely animal sexuality."
And another quote gleaned from the net
"She was flat where women ought to be flat and curvy where women should be curvy. Doubly so, in fact, in both directions." -
Does this ring any bells with anyone?
I'm thinking of the SONY RDRHXD890 (here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-RDR-
Anyone got any experience in this (and a Macbook was meant to be my next big spend...)?
ETA: I just descendezed the étapes (or something) to hear DVD player making loud whirring noise. As best I can see, my copy of Diamonds Are Forever is in there. Thank god it wasn't anything really embarrassing. I guess I am going to take the player apart tomorrow, if I can find the baby cross headed screws. A trip to Wilkos, methinks.
Connie Ramos - what is her first name? The text I'm editing has Conseula, but I suspect it's Consuelo. A secondary source agrees, but if anyone can see it...
Algernon Blackwood, "The Willows", perhaps The Willows: And Other
Queer Tales (1934) but any decent edition would do (a Penguin say) barring first edns
William Hope Hodgson, The House on the Borderland (1908) or later edition with Ch. 18.
H.P. Lovecraft (1995) Miscellaneous Writings, ed. S.T. Joshi, Sauk City, WI: Arkham House.
H.P. Lovecraft (1999) The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories, Penguin Classics (I have two of the three quotes pegged in this but can't locate third)
Thanks in advance...
And if anyone recognises Clute's phrase "Pre-Aftermath fiction" (I don't have his book on horror) let me know a source
There's a review of Falling Out of Cars which says it - "reflects his attempt to escape from what he views the SF ghetto." - but I want it in his words.
The phrase in question is "practicing media theory" in the sense of undertaking, using a particular theory - but it just tastes wrong to me. (It's complicating by the need for it to have a second sense of the theory of how to do practice.)
Edit: This would be UK usage, in case there's a difference. Google gives Practising over Practicing by only few thousand.
