I also want to keep a science fiction thread, a medieval thread (12th-16th centuries), a utopia thread, a John Crowley thread. But now I am also attracted to a Durrell thread to undo the botch job of latter-day critics. Perhaps then a contemporary writer thread, so that poor John and Larry will not have to bear the brunt of my praise? Also a Mars thread, a physics thread, poetry thread, AI and cognitive science thread.
Ungh! I find myself already stung to paralysis by this self-jousting, this entering unto the lists....
Some of these threads may be short-lived or fail to be born. But be aware this is not the politics, news, or weather channel. Of these things I must remain silent.
Instant aphorism of the day: It's so hard to know whether you are biding your time or pissing your soul away.
