Squids in space
Last week, PZ Myers, noted cephalapod fanatic, mentioned a site called Talking Squids in Outer Space that is run by the author Vonda McIntyre and dedicated to our tentacled friends in science fiction. When I checked it out, I noticed that she was missing Ken MacLeod's Engines of Light series. I dropped her a line to point out the lacuna and she has since, not only added MacLeod, but added a bunch of new squidy space opera. Tentacled beings have a long and honerable role in science fiction and it's about time they got the credit they deserve. So, go check out McIntyre's site and order a few of the books.
