Please don’t sue/flag - I’m just in it for the science.

When my husband [Carl Sagan] died, because he was so famous and known for not being a believer, many people would come up to me — it still sometimes happens — and ask me if Carl changed at the end and converted to a belief in an afterlife. They also frequently ask me if I think I will see him again.

Carl faced his death with unflagging courage and never sought refuge in illusions. The tragedy was that we knew we would never see each other again. I don’t ever expect to be reunited with Carl. But, the great thing is that when we were together, for nearly twenty years, we lived with a vivid appreciation of how brief and precious life is. We never trivialized the meaning of death by pretending it was anything other than a final parting. Every single moment that we were alive and we were together was miraculous — not miraculous in the sense of inexplicable or supernatural. We knew we were beneficiaries of chance… That pure chance could be so generous and so kind… That we could find each other, as Carl wrote so beautifully in Cosmos, you know, in the vastness of space and the immensity of time… That we could be together for twenty years. That is something which sustains me and it’s much more meaningful.

The way he treated me and the way I treated him, the way we took care of each other and our family, while he lived. That is so much more important than the idea I will see him someday. I don’t think I’ll ever see Carl again. But I saw him. We saw each other. We found each other in the cosmos, and that was wonderful.

CHUCK PALAHNIUK’S FIGHT CLUB SEQUEL COMING FROM DARK HORSE WITH ART BY CAMERON STEWART
By Andrew Wheeler
Eighteen years after Fight Club first saw print, author Chuck Palahniuk is returning to the world of Project Mayhem for a sequel — which will take the form of a ten issue comic book series illustrated by Cameron Stewart and published by Dark Horse
Speaking to USA Today, Palahniuk says the comic will pick up ten years after the events of the novel (which ends a little differently to the 1999 movie adaptation), with the unnamed Narrator struggling to be a good father to his nine-year-old son Junior, and trying not to repeat the mistakes his own father made with him.

Woo! Second new column at Bleeding Cool, and I got top billing! :D

You know what? I would totally read this. And not just because I’m a massive pervert. I actually really enjoyed what I’ve seen of Gail Simone’s take on Red Sonja and I wouldn’t mind seeing what comes of this. :)

"Many of my movies have strong female leads - brave, self-sufficient girls that don’t think twice about fighting for what they believe in with all their heart. They’ll need a friend, or a supporter, but never a savior. Any woman is just as capable of being a hero as any man." - Hayao Miyazaki
