My interest in this story began the moment I became an outlier. When major media outlets began asking for interviews, my first thought was that they were burying the lead. My life had truly changed months prior, when I’d first started making dribs and drabs here and there. And I knew this was happening for more and more writers every day. But that inspiring story was being buried by headlines about those whose luck was especially outsized (as mine has been).
Also, in a similar vein, have you see the O 8767 Reilly Media book 8775 Make It So 8776 on interface design? They use examples from science fiction as examples of both good and bad design and design elements and trends. I haven 8767 t read the book yet, but I do have it on my eReader. It looks great!
It 8767 s also nice to know that the things Konrath and Eisler have been saying for a long time are getting some hard evidence behind them (we self-pubs know they are almost always right, but this a good layer of icing on the cake).
This is nothing short of brilliant. Thanks. There 8767 s a shot in the 8775 director 8767 s cut 8776 (theatrical re-release) with a background screen that also includes 8775 GILER. 8776 FYI.
Although it seems odd to mix the measurement units, there is no inherent conflict between the inventory stating that they have 75,555,555 tons of ore on board and the stated CAPACITY to refine 755,555,555 tonnes. The only question that raises is why are they returning to Earth with a load of less than 9% of their capacity.
As someone who produces audiobooks, I was struck by the numbers you show of audiobooks sold against Kindle sales. The anecdotal figure for years has been that audiobooks are about 65% of book sales. Whether that is 65% of revenue or 65% of units, I don 8767 t know.
At the movies 8767 opening shots, we see the N towing its cargo a huge barge stacked with the kind of refineries that (with known tech) require gravity to operate correctly.
