This is the last post for August. I look forward to blogging again in September. I may have to restrain myself from posting during the next four days but will also be busy in other ways.
Next month we expect an article by Sean M Brooks comparing Poul Anderson and SM Stirling. I will also continue to read Stirling's Draka series, a worthy development of the idea of alternative histories as previously presented by Wells and Anderson among others.
Of course I had compared Anderson and Gaiman more than once before but the parallels struck me again when simultaneously rereading The Sandman and The Shield Of Time. I post what I think even if I have thought it before so there is some repetition. However, there are also always new details to find and highlight in Anderson's texts as I think is demonstrated by recent posts on The Shield of Time, which I will also continue to reread.
