Any idea what the typical delay between acquisition and publishing was back in the early 1980s? I have a (January 1984) books from Ace that really feels like Jim Baen would have acquired it but he founded Baen in 1983.

Sounds like Seattle is going the way of SF.

It's been going that way for years, hasn't it? At least according to my long-time Seattle-dwelling friends. Microsoft money sloshing all around, and now Amazon as well.

Soon Seattle will bloat up to two or three times its normal word count.

Angry gamer bros will rant feebly about the existence of women.

Leaving Seattle will become impossible due to arbitrarily extended sequels. You get on the highway and soon you're in Tacoma...and then Olympia...and then Centralia. The towns keep getting smaller and less interesting but you never get to the last one in the series.

The economics of large-scale middle-class apartment housing was gutted by the Thor Power Tool decision.

Seattle's demographics drift older and older, while Seattle looks down its nose at cities like Bellevue and their associated fanfic communities.

Some see the Space Needle as an effort to predict the future, others see it as using the idea of the future to entertain and comment.

Older people may reread 'Boeing Age' work for comfort, but young people who read it often bounce off the casual sexism and other Bad Fairy gifts.
