Music and musicians

I just signed up over on Facebook (I have a new acquaintance who has some photos there I wanted to see) and one of the “interest” boxes, of course, was for favorite music. So I took a look through the directory where my iTunes files live and started making a list. But it got rather long and ridiculous, and didn’t really express my tastes anyway. So I didn’t post it. But having written it up I didn’t want to waste it, so I’m posting it here.

    I'm starting to catch up with myself, so this may be the last RUNE upload for a while. But here it is—“naughty” Steve Stiles cover…

  • (no subject)

    Okay, I got another couple more PDFs of past RUNEs up on my site: RUNE41 and Sci-Fi People Weekly, a thinly disguised issue of Rune, Vol. 10 No. 10…

  • First in a series of old RUNEs posted!

    As I believe I mentioned before, Lynn Anderson was kind enough to allow me to scan his old copies of RUNE before passing them along to the Minn-Stf…
