I guess it's a good thing I had a fairish post yesterday, 'cos today my head is nearly as empty as a balloon.
...I did race through Into Your Tent, a biography of British SF writer Eric Frank Russell, a man who in person seems to have been moody, opinionated, sometimes downright rude -- and intensely private. While he is not quite the fellow you'd expect from his stories, he's certainly interesting. There's something kind of admirable about a writer who responds to cheeky, nosy questions about his life with "fibble off!" and/or utter, obvious fabrications.
