VIEWS FROM THE ACORN UNIVERSE, 10/15/08. This week, season finales, The Forever War, a gay sf/f publisher, and a look back at Fat Diary.


Sordid Lives: The Series will end its first season on Logo, October 29. BBC America decided to air the first two seasons of the time-bending series Primeval without a break in between. Season two ends November 1.


The Playlist has posted Ridley Scott To Direct (First Ever?) Homosexual Sci-Fi Film? (The title seems inaccurate.) I haven’t read the book he’s adapting, The Forever War, but it sounds interesting. Please post comments about it if you’ve read it.


YaoiAndYuri=YaY! posted an interview with gay sf/f publisher Blind Eye Books, covering books from Astrid Amara, Josh Lanyon, and Ginn Hale.


It’s over; the fat lady sang. Over the past several weeks, I posted “Fat Diary” in installments at doorQ. That story uses a librarian’s diary to introduce readers to a scifi geek, a closeted mayor, and many other offbeat characters, in the West Texas town of Acorn. Read Part 1. Parts 2 and 3. Part 4. Part 5. Part 6. Conclusion.
