Hailing frequencies open, citizens! We always have so many extra photos in our travels that don’t quite make it into the Space Exploration article. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t share them with you! Our latest are from March’s featured sim, Era of Salvation. You can always find more information about EoS in the sidebar.
You’ll excuse me stepping outside our genre a little bit into Fantasy just for a moment, as I know many of our readers shared my love of Terry Pratchett.
Today we lost Sir Terry Pratchett, who somehow found his way over the edge of our Roundworld, and who I personally hope fell safely onto the flatter, more ridiculous, yet more sensible one that he created. Discworld was not just a place in his mind – he made it real. I can close my eyes and picture the soft yellow light of dawn flow over the landscape like golden syrup, and it is no small thing to make the sun rise in the minds of the countless readers of his books.
Yes, today we lost Sir Terry Pratchett, but he found peace. An end to his suffering. Death took away the pain. And on this sorrowful day, I can think of no one better to quote than his own Death:
“Wʜᴀᴛ ᴄᴀɴ ᴛʜᴇ ʜᴀʀᴠᴇsᴛ ʜᴏᴘᴇ ғᴏʀ, ɪғ ɴᴏᴛ ғᴏʀ ᴛʜᴇ ᴄᴀʀᴇ ᴏғ ᴛʜᴇ Rᴇᴀᴘᴇʀ Mᴀɴ?”
If you’ve never heard Miss Trolley read a story, then you, my fine space cadets, are missing out on a terrestrial (or extraterrestrial) pleasure. Come hear her read “The Lady Astronaut of Mars” 3pm SLT TODAY at the SL Sci-Fi Convention.
LM to Fhloston Paradise:
“Perhaps the author of that flexi-skirt actually has an encyclopedic knowledge of literature about elves, perhaps they can bust out some Sindarin at a moment’s notice – but they may not get the chance to, because they’re brushed off in virtual worlds just like we tend to brush off nerds in the real world.”
