At a glance to my records, folks, it does look like September could be a pretty big month on the whole trivia-spinning business. Generally speaking (here in the States, anyway), September is when TV seasons start to begin, so that means the TV sections grow a bit thicker in the middle over the course of the next few months. I suspect that you'll see some of these daily citations start to tick up a bit here and there. It won't be universal, no, but it should trend here and there. Keep your eyes peeled.
But as for today?
Well, I can't let this post go by with a proper birthday shout to the lovely Brooke Lewis Bellas. The actress has been part and parcel of some fabulous B-Movies and more, not only doing the good stuff of acting but also getting into the business of writing and producing. She's also been one of SciFiHistory.Net's biggest supporters in the Twittersphere (now called XSphere? Ugh!), so it goes without saying that we here think she's the bees' knees. Nothing but bold wishes and big tidings headed her way on this, her special day.
Also, I couldn't let the day go by without a proper birthday acknowledgement to one of the true originals of Science Fiction and Fantasy: on this day all the way back in 1875 author Edgar Rice Burroughs entered out plane of existence. Over the course of his professional career, Burroughs would go on to craft such contributions to the world of literature as Tarzan of the Apes, John Carter of Mars, Carson of Venus, the Pellucidar series, the Caspak novels, and even a bit more. His was an incredible imagination that fueled more pulp adventures than one might thought imaginable, and his legacy continues to inspire readers and filmmakers all across the world.
It goes without saying that -- with 85 citations and rising -- there's a great deal to celebrate today. As usual, I encourage each of you to head on over to the Daily Citations Page and take a healthy gander but buckle up ... this is a day for the history books!
As always, thanks for reading ... thanks for sharing ... and live long and prosper!
