Please allow me to take a moment for self-congratulations. I hit two milestones this week of various degrees of significance.
First off Solar Flare passed the 500 post mark. Which means by my estimates we could hit the 1000 post point before the end of 2005. In itself that’s perhaps not very amazing or significant, but it does indicate Solar Flare’s continued growth and the maturation of its new blog format. Not only have I been broadening the news coverage but with reviews and recently the introduction of interviews and more opinion pieces, Solar Flare is really starting to live up to its goal of covering all aspects of Science Fiction and Fantasy.
Secondly, on a more personal level, I just turned 33 today. Being the middle of the week it’s been a fairly quiet sort of birthday, but no less pleasant for that. Besides as a reward my wife has agreed to go with me this weekend and watch Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. Thats a big sacrifice on her part.
Okay, enough about me, back to your regular coverage.Eoghann Irving is amongst other things the creator and Editor of Solar Flare.
