But that’s crazy talk. Rikard June 6, 2022 at 3:49 am 1 year ago Paying the serfs to do a job they should thank their betters for be allowed to do at all? Sounds like that new-fangled communism-thing, m’lud. TB June 6, 2022 at 3:11 pm 1 year ago I pointed out before that if you came to Earth and offered humanity a career snuggling puppies, you’d probably get more volunteers than there are Stribs. 3oranges June 6, 2022 at 1:07 am 1 year ago I wonder if the older Stribs would have been willing to condemn the younger ones to raising the children, though. Efogoto June 6, 2022 at 1:50 am 1 year ago I wonder who raised the older Stribs’ kids. It’s not like humans are necessarily the first species they’ve used as nannies. If they did use nannies, what was it about them that made the younger Stribs go hunt for different ones? Efogoto June 6, 2022 at 1:54 am 1 year ago New Willoweep?! Huzzah! I look forward to my purchase. Thank you. I very much enjoyed the first. David B June 6, 2022 at 8:07 am 1 year ago I saw an art style I thought I recognized at the library and read Willoweep Manor in 1 sitting. I was a bit surprised that I’d not heard of it here first. Also, I want Haley to be related to the 2 related female leads in Spacetrawler. Efogoto June 6, 2022 at 10:56 am 1 year ago The book was announced 05/29/19 and released 7/20/21. If it takes roughly 26 months to go from announcement to book (purely speculative, I have no idea what Christopher’s schedule is like – what with “Ursa Minor” and all), I’ll be reading the book in early August 2024. The Shadow June 6, 2022 at 1:58 am 1 year ago The Stribs really don’t seem to have ANY redeeming qualities. I hate to recommend genocide, but can we maybe foist them on another universe or something? Coyoty June 6, 2022 at 2:19 am 1 year ago Then that universe will come after us for doing the same thing the Stribs did with their elderly. The Shadow June 6, 2022 at 4:06 am 1 year ago Then perhaps the same fate as Krikkit? Imprisoned in their own little null-space? Fnordius June 7, 2022 at 6:21 pm 1 year ago Maybe they taste better than Furryites? Genocide would then deprive us of those delicious Strib sandwiches! Coyoty June 6, 2022 at 2:20 am 1 year ago “Are you kidding? You know what we grow up to be like!” Scorpinac June 6, 2022 at 6:00 am 1 year ago I’m sorry, but SERIOUSLY?!?!?! Was the one who got killed on the retirement planet the ONLY one who was against the plan? Erhannis June 6, 2022 at 12:16 pm 1 year ago While I’ll admit I didn’t really much care for the journal comics, I appreciate the glimpse into this chapter of your life. (Though I expect it’s at least somewhat filtered, it seems a lot less so than the usual facebook status update view you usually have of people.) I feel like I’ve learned a lot of what I “know” about people and life from fiction, which…is fictional. So it’s nice to have examples of how life actually goes sometimes. Pete Rogan June 6, 2022 at 11:27 pm 1 year ago Well, I’ll say this for the Stribs: They’re perfectly morally consistent. Parasitism is the only thing they live for. Time to pinch out the tick, scorch the chigger, and boil the lamprey. I note with some satisfaction that Emily hasn’t moved her hands from the ship’s controls. I admit some surprise, though I shouldn’t have any, that G.O.B. combat ships use Hands On Throttle And Stick (HOTAS) for control. This could be over in minutes. And yet… I am getting another lemonade. I can’t shake the premonition that this situation is about to get still more complicateder. No idea how, so that’s why I’m tuning in Wednesday.
