Sorry, friends, but as of 2.30 Eastern Standard Time, I am now officially a Big Author. That means I weigh over 295 pounds, which is the average weight for science fiction fans. As a Big Author, I find it too confusing, when reading comments here on my journal, when two guys named Anonymous are arguing for racism or arguing that America is the most racist nation ever, and leaving multiple comments to defend their weird madness.

So, I’ll let you comment, but now you have to take the five minutes it takes to sign up for a free account, and you have to make up a name.

Myself, I think a far worse social ill that will afflict us in the Twenty-Fourth and a Half Century will be “Shapism.” Both Gloop and Gleep from the Herculoids, and Gharlane of Eddore, not to mention the Founders of the Delta Quadrant, have a right to be offended with us “solids” and our narrow-minded unwilling to let our daughters marry liquid creatures.
