The Unremembered by Peter OrullianViolating Your Expectations

By Peter Orullian

I love this phrase: “violating your expectations.” The fact that I do probably discloses way too much about who I am, but there you go. I first heard “VYE” in a 500 level Shakespeare course I had in college. The bard knew a thing or two about it. You have your mind or heart set on something, and “Ker-pow!” it don’t go the way you hoped or thought it would.



All the Lives He Led by Frederik PohlWhat’s your Favorite Frederik Pohl novel?

Upon the occasion of the publication of All the Lives He Led by Frederik Pohl, we thought it might be a propitious time to ask some of his peers to share their picks.

We’ll be posting one answer every day from now until the release of All the Lives He Led on April 12.  We hope you will let us know if you have any favorites too.

They are about surviving, and what you look like when you emerge from the trial. The reason we keep telling fairy tales over and over, that we need to keep telling them, is that the trials change. So the stories change too, and the heroines and villains and magical objects, to keep them true. Fairy tales are the closets where the world keeps its skeletons.
