I had two articles this week at tor dot com, I signed up for comment
alerts for each individual comment, and both turned out to generate a lot
of comments. Basically, I managed to create my own bespoke denial of
service attack on my email.

Blood work all normal save for b12. I've gone from having basically none to unusually high levels. Although I am not a doctor I managed to work out why this might be: a close look at the jar of B12 pills I take reveals that rather than picking a jar of 1000 unit pills, I got 5000 unit pills instead.

James Nicoll review

I was curious about the James Nicoll review, so I had a look at his website, where he states that he accepts payments to $100 review a book. Given the wealth of material out about this novella, I'm very uncomfortable with using a reviewer who charges to review books, unless there is some reason why this particular reviewer needs to be included. Thoughts?

First thought: it's possible Bilby thinks I get paid by the authors or publishers to promote their books. I don't: authors and other people too closely connected to the production of a book cannot commission reviews of said books.

Second thought: Does Bilby think reviewers at Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, and so on are reviewing for free?
