my vacuum airship
is not possible today
some day it will be


a time traveler
went back in time to Woodstock
but then she got caught

fleeing the G-man
a hippie gets caught up too
and now they are lost

cave men, dinosaurs,
are they in past or future?
a grand adventure!


my girlfriend and I
will sing "Penny Lane" at the
con in Japanese

which isn't easy
because neither she nor I
can speak Japanese


she misjudged how hard
karaoke can be when
you don't know the words

and then she got sick
and missed a lot of practice
so was not ready

so I will just sing
Moonlight Densetsu instead
the first song I learned

next time she and I
will practice our sweet butts off
and sing Penny Lane

I crashed onto Karn
I drank of the sacred flame
The Doctor No More!

Here are the winners for the MAVEN haiku contest--not only did I not win, but I didn't get enough votes to get included on the DVD :(

This is my blue box.
It's bigger on the inside.
Care to take a spin?

married to two wives
one has another husband
the other does not

she has a boyfriend
and they work together on
building habitats

not like today but
recreating the ancient
dead ecosystems

so the dinosaurs
her husband rescues from time
have a place to live

but he couldn't do
that unless his other wife
kept machines working

her other husband
knows all that DNA stuff
but SHE fixes Jeeps

the DNA guy
has a boyfriend himself who
works the time machine

and what of the two
teenagers who are dating
while working for them

Thank you Bob, as a good Colorado booster (at least as much as a Texan can be) I was obligated to submit an entry.

you're right, it's Spring and time for haiku:

from his steel fingers
she takes the rose-red petals
falling to the tile

"Deleted by the
Author" at the beginning;
Never a good sign.

When I saw this old thread pop up, I thought for sure someone had posted the following that I saw the other day. I was going to go looking for this old thread to post it here.

"NASA holds haiku contest to send a message to Mars"

Here is the link to get your haiku in to be included on the MAVEN mission to Mars (only the top 3 haikus will get sent). Registration required->

Not a science fiction novel, but disease-themed and inspiring nonetheless:

Plague-ridden hope drowns,
With egoism of love:
Captive in Oran.

An Asimov book
The End of Eternity
movie in the works

Another year to
Reap what the author's harvest
From their fertile minds.

Currently reading Eric Brown's Weird Space: The Devil's Nebula and will be reading Kim Stanley Robinson's 2312 soon - both published last month. Would love to get my paws on David Brin's Existence, too.

The plenitude of
Brown, Brin, Banks and Robinson!
Indulge the glutton!

With the filling wheat,
Comes the peripheral chaff:
McDevitt returns.

Jack McDevitt has The Cassandra Project coming out later this year... which isn't even on my to-buy list this year. Looks to be a good year with Hamilton's Great North Road in the mix, too.

a little bit of a pop tune mashup:

Bounce from dune to dune
Giant steps are what you take
Walking on the moon

We're coming up on our 1 year anniversary, so I'll get a jump on it with something seasonal:

my gold's at the end
of the rainbow nebula
swears the wee green man

Lain: a young, shy girl.
Serial experiments?
does that make her God?

What scared us last night?
It's just our tracks in the snow
And those of the crow.

The master bedroom opens
into a solarium
where I keep orchids
Another solarium?
The Tardis has two.

Freezing winds up North
Blue Eyes glow in darkened snow
Winter is Coming!!!!
