Flashback: June 4, 2007

Snoopy

Greetings from limbo! I’m currently en route to Continuum, but given the weirdness of time zones and the international date line, I have no idea where or when I’ll actually be when this post goes up. In fact, depending on the flight, it’s possible that I might never see June 4, 2014 at 9:30 a.m.!

In the meantime, have another post from the archives. Back in 2007, I had just begun doing LOLBooks, adding captions to various book covers and artwork…

For anyone who missed the earlier of my book-macroing entries, you can go to http://jimhines.livejournal.com/tag/lol to see all of them.

And if you find these entries completely bizarre and confusing, I Can Haz Cheezburger should provide some background.

Anyway, today I present Tobias Buckell’s debut novel, the Nebula finalist and Locus bestseller Crystal Rain. (Art by Todd Lockwood.)

So what do folks think? Should I see how long I can ride this fad before running out of ideas? Or is it time to let the LOLing die already?

June 4th at 9:30am wasn't special -- you didn't miss much.

June 4th, 2014, 9:30am - birds chirping, cloudy sky, cool weather (where I am). Well...due to daylight saving here in New South Wales, it was 8:30am here ( and 9:30am in other parts of Australia). :)

Keep up the lol book covers - they're hilarious!

Why does NSW have daylight savings in June?

*facepalm* Ugh. I should have typed "Due to Daylight saving not occurring now". Daylight saving doesn't start in New South Wales again until October. Thanks for the reminder. :)

That gave me a much needed smile at the end of a very long and difficult day.

LOLING will never die!

But don't force it, just do it when inspired.

Welcome to Australia. To to avoid the drop bears.

A blast from the past. Even before I began reading your blog.

Wow.

I miss the LOLbooks! I first found your blog when you lol'd my friend Lyda Morehouse's Archangel Protocol, been following you--and reading your books--ever since.
