And yes, yes, yes: it's also Hump Day, ladies and gentlemen, so you know what that means.
Alas, not a whole lot to report from the SciFiHistory.Net News Desk this morning. As each of you know, we're still in the midst of the Silly Season, and this means that news doesn't quite travel as fast as it does other times of the new. Plus, I've had to spend more than a few moments this morning playing catch up on some routine matters of the space, having myself been away from the home on a small holiday trip. While it's great to be back in comfortable pursuits, there are always tasks that need to get done once back in the saddle ... and that's taken a bit of focus away from the blog. It is -- as they say -- what it is. Still, I am trying to get up a review later today: I just need to find some extra minutes to hammer the prose into shape and find some pics online to add to it. Keep your eyes peeled, and maybe -- just maybe -- I'll get it done.
In the meantime, might I offer you a hearty -- and heartfelt -- 61 different genre trivia citations to tide you over? To whet your whistle? To tickle your fancy? In fact, might I add further that two of the Horror genre's biggest citations happen to fall on the same damn day?! Actress Barbara Crampton and genre legend Charles Band both celebrate their birthdays on this day in Science Fiction History, as do such other illuminaries as Dune's Timothée Chalamet, Lost's Emilie De Raven, and 12 Monkeys' Aaron Stanford ... a great genre line-up if every there were ... so there's plenty to keep one tempted with this date. Please, please, and please: head on over to the link below, and please, please, please do the old 'like & share' thing on social media.
As always, thanks for reading ... thanks for sharing ... thanks for being a fan ... and live long and prosper!
