It feels good. Now, if only I hadn't awakened a little before four and laid in bed reading until the alarm went off at six and the cats needed to be fed. But I went back to bed and caught up, and that's a good thing.
Allen Steele's V-S Day has been my entertainment at these times in recent days. It's an alternate history of WW II, in which von Braun's team at Peenemünde are taken off the V-2 program and put to building Eugen Sänger and Irene Bredt's Silbervogel manned intercontinental rocket bomber instead. The U.S. starts a crash program to counter it, headed by Robert Goddard, and the race is on! Good reading.
