A little gossip, a little chat

(Updated June 17, 2012) This post has become of historical interest only ... the chat log lived on someone else's website and is now overcome by events. But if chatting is your thing, check out my new discussion group at Goodreads).

A little idle talk of SF and Nonsense (with apologies to Joe Darion).

Last year's blog poll showed interest in an SF and Nonsense online chat. Let's give it a try, shall we? Saturday, 1/24/09, starting at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time (that's GMT - 5 hours).

To access the chat, go to the Edward M. Lerner IRC chat server. Holler if you have questions.

Judging from comments on blog posts, I'll anticipate a few likely topics -- not to insist on them, but to prime the conversational pump: SF tropes, what we like (and don't) about popular SF series on TV, fandom, and my own fiction.

Whether or not you voted, I hope you'll join the fun.

If no one listens then it's just as well.
At least I won't get caught in any lies I tell.


Another Man of La Mancha fan, eh?

I don't do so well with chats, but maybe I'll give it a try. I'll certainly read, even if I don't "talk."

It'll be an experiment for all of us :-)

For unimportant reasons beyond my control, the chat has been moved. You can now find it at:
