- While we're on the topic of zombies, I listened to a great review of the indy game Zombie Cinema. It's a quick, pick-up RPG game (how's that possible???). Seems perfect for the Werewolf/Mafia party game crowd albeit with less players. Bonus points for the social tension of the game (we can all win if we all cooperate...).
- Paul Krugman, Nobel Prize winner for economics, has an essay entitled Incidents from My Career and includes various experiences including being influenced by Asimov. Bonus points for his 1978 paper The Theory of Interstellar Trade.
