Science Fiction Though the Decades

About the Blog

Like the dinosaurs, which mother nature never cared to bring about again in favor of mammals, I've decided to quit quit blogging in favor of a few other hobbies that give more pleasure: reading for pleasure, running, going to the gym, and writing fiction. Blogging became a burden as it was too time-consuming; for example, compare the number of minutes dedicated to typing a post with the number of views (low) and comments (next to none). I've got better, more enjoyable things to do that to type for hours and send the rambling to the sea of information where it's lost forever. Alas, I'll at least keep this page up to date.
