This has been a Year of the Jackpot in fandom: Art Widner, Peggy Rae Sapienza, and now Ned Brooks, stalwart fanzine producer and Southern Fandom Press Alliance member for many many years. All are great losses.

We are informed that although he was in his late seventies, he climbed up on his roof to repair it and suffered a fatal fall. A few years ago Max McGee, star of the first Super Bowl, died the same way at a similar age. I am not getting up on any roofs.

Graveyard rotation is over, but everything's still a bit surreal. I spent most of this most recent graveyard half awake, not doing much besides working and watching tv. Today's my first day back during the day when there's an office full of people, and I have my midyear review to go over with my boss. Not looking forward to superloud chaos (relative to recent times) and the total uncertainty of my boss's opinion of my value & company contributions and how those may differ from my own opinions. Trying not to think about it, mostly -- I have projects I'm working on, that are good and beneficial, and the day-to-day is good too, so fuck it.

1. Even with the translation of doom going on, I still managed to get Gunjo done before the end of the month.

2. With Carla out of town, I get the bed to myself for three whole weeks! It's pretty nice.

3. Day off tomorrow! I have to go in for a couple hours, but I'm not going in until late morning/midday, so I still get to sleep in and not rush.

Review: Through Struggle, The Stars, by John J. Lumpkin

Series: Human Reach #1
Publisher: John J. Lumpkin
Copyright: July 2011
ISBN: 1-4611-9544-6
Format: Kindle
Pages: 429

Never let it be said that I don't read military SF. However, it can be said that I read books and then get hellishly busy and don't review them for months. So we'll see if I can remember this well enough to review it properly.

In Lumpkin's future world, mankind has spread to the stars using gate technology, colonizing multiple worlds. However, unlike most science fiction futures of this type, it's not all about the United States, or even the United States and Russia. The great human powers are China and Japan, with the United States relegated to a distant third. The US mostly maintains its independence from either, and joins the other lesser nations and UN coalitions to try to pick up a few colonies of its own. That's the context in which Neil and Rand join the armed services: the former as a pilot in training, and the latter as an army grunt.

This is military SF, so of course a war breaks out. But it's a war between Japan and China: improved starship technology and the most sophisticated manufacturing in the world against a much larger economy with more resources and a larger starting military. For reasons that are not immediately clear, and become a plot point later on, the United States president immediately takes an aggressive tone towards China and pushes the country towards joining the war on the side of Japan.

Most of this book is told from Neil's perspective, following his military career during the outbreak of war. His plans to become a pilot get derailed as he gets entangled with US intelligence agents (and a bad supervisor). The US forces are not in a good place against China, struggling when they get into ship-to-ship combat, and Neil's ship goes on a covert mission to attempt to complicate the war with political factors. Meanwhile, Rand tries to help fight off a Chinese invasion of one of the rare US colony worlds.

Through Struggle, The Stars does not move quickly. It's over 400 pages, and it's a bit surprising how little happens. What it does instead is focus on how the military world and the war feels to Neil: the psychological experience of wanting to serve your country but questioning its decisions, the struggle of working with people who aren't always competent but who you can't just make go away, the complexities of choosing a career path when all the choices are fraught with politics that you didn't expect to be involved in, and the sheer amount of luck and random events involved in the progression of one's career. I found this surprisingly engrossing despite the slow pace, mostly because of how true to life it feels. War is not a never-ending set of battles. Life in a military ship has moments when everything is happening far too quickly, but other moments when not much happens for a long time. Lumpkin does a great job of reflecting that.

Unfortunately, I thought there were two significant flaws, one of which means I probably won't seek out further books in this series.

First, one middle portion of the book switches away from Neil to follow Rand instead. The first part of that involves the details of fighting orbiting ships with ground-based lasers, which was moderately interesting. (All the technological details of space combat are interesting and thoughtfully handled, although I'm not the sort of reader who will notice more subtle flaws. But David Weber this isn't, thankfully.) But then it turns into a fairly generic armed resistance story, which I found rather boring.

It also ties into the second and more serious flaw: the villain. The overall story is constructed such that it doesn't need a personal villain. It's about the intersection of the military and politics, and a war that may be ill-conceived but that is being fought anyway. That's plenty of conflict for the story, at least in my opinion. But Lumpkin chose to introduce a specific, named Chinese character in the villain role, and the characterization is... well.

After he's humiliated early in the story by the protagonists, Li Xiao develops an obsession with killing them, for his honor, and then pursues them throughout the book in ways that are sometimes destructive to the Chinese war efforts. It's badly unrealistic compared to the tone of realism taken by the rest of the story. Even if someone did become this deranged, it's bizarre that a professional military (and China's forces are otherwise portrayed as fairly professional) would allow this. Li reads like pure caricature, and despite being moderately competent apart from his inexplicable (but constantly repeated) obsession, is cast in a mustache-twirling role of personal villainy. This is weirdly out of place in the novel, and started irritating me enough that it took me out of the story.

Through Struggle, The Stars is the first book of a series, and does not resolve much by the end of the novel. That plus its length makes the story somewhat unsatisfying. I liked Neil's development, and liked him as a character, and those who like the details of combat mixed with front-lines speculation about politics may enjoy this. But a badly-simplified mustache-twirling victim and some extended, uninteresting bits mar the book enough that I probably won't seek out the sequels.

Followed by The Desert of Stars.

Rounded image/table corners

jordannamorgan: Edward and Alphonse Elric, "Fullmetal Alchemist". (FMA Long Road)
[personal profile] jordannamorgan in [community profile] style_system
This is probably a question I should have asked a long time ago, but it's come up again in my updating of some old layouts, so. :Þ

A couple of different layouts I use (including my own journal and [community profile] prose_alchemist) not only give rounded corners to entries and modules, they insist on rounding off the corners--or sometimes half the corners--of my header images as well.

Is there a way I can get rid of all the rounded corners, and just have nice, straight, angular ones? I'd like to do that with the header images and entries/modules, although I'd settle for just not having the corners of my headers forcibly rounded off. (If I wanted them rounded, I would have made them that way, DW...)

Answer me these questions three if the other side thee seek!

So, what is bugging me about this NATG, apart from it being shortened to 15 days, is that the prompts are situation driven. As such, you could probably draw the same pony in the same position every day and just change the scenery. Thus, we are asked for scenario creativity, we are not asked to draw new positions, actions, body types, expressions, view points... As such, some people have noted that some prompts have had situational overlap. If we are testing new ways to draw ponies, situation overlap would be unimportant. Maybe next NATG?

Writing/SFF

[livejournal.com profile] mrissa posted about critiquing writing recently. This is the chunk that especially pleases me: "And…this is a thing I honestly love about writing. I really, really love this. If you catch me in the wrong mood, I will wax sentimental and get a little choked up. Because in writing, in speculative fiction in particular, we take it for granted–it is a totally normal thing to do–that we will get to look at other people’s awesome things and help make them a little more awesome. Think about that for a moment. There are some other jobs for which it works that way, sure–for which a project is primarily someone else’s and it is assumed that you will get to take your time and help make it better. But mostly not. Mostly you are either working together on something or you’re not helping. I like helping. I like cooperation."

Going back a couple of weeks, Zen Cho posted "My publishing journey: Revising the novel (again and again and again)".

"Kelly Sue DeConnick: How To Make People Uncomfortable (And Still Make a Living)". There are few weird typos in the transcript--one of which I wasn't quite able to reverse engineer to what she actually said--but a good read and, I'm sure, good viewing if you watch the video instead.


Social Justice

"10 Things I’ve Learned About Gaslighting As An Abuse Tactic". [Everyday Feminism]

[dreamwidth.org profile] commodorified has a longish post on writing rape in fiction. "This essay was originally inspired by this post, but a) I sat on it for awhile and b) this isn't, except in one important detail — the quite possibly unconscious assumption saturating that advice that nobody who writes fiction and/or fic has ever been raped, or gone in fear of it, and all that implies about said advice — a particularly terrible example. There's some very good stuff there, if applied cautiously. So I want to acknowledge Swan Tower, as well.

This is my assumption: we all live in rape culture, and we are all injured by it. Victims of sexual assaults - all ages and genders - are injured by it. Those who have at one time or another been threatened with sexual assault and evaded it are injured by it. Women, queer men, transfolk, and others at high risk of sexual assault, who must learn how to negotiate the world under threat, are injured by it."



Unsorted

Via [dreamwidth.org profile] kaberett, [dreamwidth.org profile] happydork's post "Introversion, social anxiety, social skills, change" is excellent.

[dreamwidth.org profile] happydork's more recent post on microaggressions--what microaggressions and some of their characteristics are--is also well worth reading. "Microaggressions are those little shitty things that people say/do that can seem innocuous (or, at least, not worth making a fuss about) on their own, but build up into a longterm pattern of reinforcing privilege/oppression dynamics and making the recipient feel like shit. You can see examples at microaggressions.com."

Via a few people, GQ did a great profile of Stephen Colbert as he moves away from The Colbert Report and takes over The Daily Show.

"Over the years, Stephen Harper's done everything imaginable to present himself as warm-blooded human, employing stylists and make-up artists, limiting photography by the media, and releasing an unstoppable flurry of propaganda-like photos. As it turns out, most of these efforts are effectively pointless once a dildo is gently inserted into the frame, which is exactly what an artist from Montreal has been doing for the past year"

A couple of weekends ago was Prologue. The Friday after that [personal profile] adrian_turtle got here for a week's visit, which was very good in a quiet staying-at-home sort of way, but even two- and three-person interaction is different from me sitting in one room at my computer while [personal profile] cattitude sits in another reading.

This morning a bunch of us went out for dim sum and to see Lise (WINOLJ/DW) while she's in town after Worldcon. That was fun, but about an hour after I got home this afternoon I realized that I was worn out, some combination of physically tired (I woke up early for no apparent reason) and maybe just more socializing that I'd been prepared for. Fortunately, while there are things I need to do, everything except about 15 more minutes of PT exercises can wait until tomorrow.
