For stuff that may not belong

This blog deals with my reflections on science and SF -- and only in passing, and in occasional posts, with my own writing.

For the past few years, I've produced an emailed newsletter, 2-3 times per year, for readers specifically interested in updates about my writing. As the months go by, more and more of those newsletters have fallen prey to overzealous spam filters.

So: I've established a private Google Group (more or less the same as a listserv):

Edward M. Lerner News and Discussion

for interested readers. The group is a better way to send the occasional announcement to those who have opted in -- with a reasonable chance that the resulting emails will end up where intended.

Members can -- but certainly don't have to -- send email to the group address, which will echo the email to other members. That's a way to discuss a book or story (or anything, for that matter) with fellow readers. I'll be copied, too, and will sometimes chime in.

If you're curious, check out the group. Joining requires a Google account. An account, if you don't have one, is free.

We now return you to the regular discussion of science and SF :-)
