    That’s easy, central and south. Yay, I just won a first edition copy of The Last Dangerous Visions.

    I want to live in the other America where Joel Hodgson was host of “Mystery Science Theater 3000” for 30 seasons.

    This feels like they’ve blown the big twist where it’s revealed Uncle Sam was a robot the whole time.

    Everybody rise for “The Star-Spangled Microchip”!

    So Ape-raham Lincoln was a terminator all along. Mind blown.

    “I Want You!”—to oil me.

    @Tor M—Amen to that.

    Funny that they mention that Spinrad was the author of “Little Heroes”. Even funnier that they say he’s a bestselling author, but not that “Little Heroes” was a bestseller.

    I own and read (in the past) a copy of “Little Heroes”, and I don’t think that ‘endorsement’ is gonna help this book. 😉

    Robo-America, Ape-America, Lizard-America, and Clown-America. Each more terrifying than the last!

    It looks like Robo-Sam is trying hard to sell us his line of novelty US-shaped marble table tops. Now in green and purple.

    @Bruce: Robo-Sam wants YOU! to buy this faux-marble table top, available here on HSN for only 4 easy payments of $49.99. Don’t worry, Alexa has already ordered it for you.

    I wish we could split into Other Americas, because I’m tired of the conspiracy-mongering non-vaccinated MAGAts screwing things up for the sensible people.

    @fred: It’s still coming, so they’ve started saying again.
    hangs sign reading “It has been 48 years since a Dangerous Visions has been published.”
