Back Home

I'm back in New Mexico, after a day spent in a succession of pressurized steel tubes.

I'm not going to chat about the meetings. They weren't secret, but they were sort of complex, and don't lend themselves to easy summary.

Let me just say when you start getting correspondence with the letterhead HEADQUARTERS SUPREME ALLIED COMMANDER it tends to attract your attention.

And no, I didn't meet the supreme commander in person.

Met his posse, though.

Is this another one of those things like Pournelle and his buddies did back in the 1980s? Get a bunch of sci-fi writers together and have them figure out how to beat Russia? Hopefully it works out better than their plan did.

I remember when they told me to say the same thing. So, has Ziggy finished his design for the Space Marmot Repellent?

halojones-na: The group you're referencing is called Sigma, and still meets.

The group is called Sigma, yeah.

For some reason people think Jerry Pournelle runs it, but he doesn't, and never claimed he did.
