I’ve just enjoyed reading Frederik Pohl’s 1979 novel “Jem”. Pohl was a prolific author- first published in 1937, with a final novel (‘All the Lives He Led’, 2011), and a collection of essays in 2012 – he died in 2013. I’ve been reading SF for about forty years and was aware of Pohl but never […]

Did Samwell Tarly just sign his own death warrant? (Picture: HBO) Samwell Tarly has always been one to hit us right in the heart, but his latest kind gesture in Game of Thrones was the kind of sweet moment we will never forgive him for. ***Warning: Game Of Thrones spoilers ahead*** On the eve of the War of Winterfell, Samwell is seen handing over family heirloom, the sword Heartsbane, to Jorah Mormont. Made of Valyrian steel, the sword is one of few that have the potential to kill a White Walker, and so on top of saving his life from the greyscale that could’ve killed him, may have just given him another life line. Touched by his generosity, especially after Jorah and Sam discovered his oldest friend Daenerys put the strike out on Sam’s brother Dickon and father Randyll. In a moment of touching sweetness, Jorah promised to dedicate his time in battle, and the sword, to Jeor Mormont, his biological father, and father figure for Sam. For those not in the know, Heartsbane has a particular special place for the well-meaning Samwell, with his father Randyll wielding it before it came to him. Jorah now has a significant advantage in the Battle Of Winterfell (Picture: HBO) Randyll, who was cold-hearted and callus at the best of times, disowned Sam when he realised his relationship with wildling Gilly. Vowing it would never leave Sam’s family home of Horn Hill, Sam eventually stole the blade and made a run for it with Gilly and her son. Heartsbane is of some decent worth, and was previously used by ‘Savage Sam’ Tarly generations before Samwell. So naturally, people had feelings as the final scenes unfolded before the battle of Winterfell began. [metro-tag-post-strip] The next episodes are promising to be tearjerkers as the Battle of Winterfell begins. With the White Walkers arriving any moment now, we already know nobody makes it out alive. Game Of Thrones continues Sundays on HBO and Sky Atlantic.

Source – geopolitica.ru – “…Living in ‘splendid isolation’ and devoid of binding treaties with any other nation had not been viewed as a handicap as long as no other power on earth challenged the Empire. But in the early years of the twentieth century there was a serious challenger. If the Secret Elite were to […]

I. An epoch doesn’t change with the turning of a calendar page. We can’t distinguish one zeitgeist from the next until decades or perhaps even centuries later. Or at least that used to be the case. Now the destruction of our planet is occurring in real time right in front of our sunburnt noses. Nevertheless, […]
