This New York Times pan of Doomsday Men: The Real Dr. Strangelove and the Dream of the Superweapon winds up being a pretty interesting profile of Leo Szilard, the man who came up with the idea for the hypothetical cobalt bomb Kubrick used in Dr. Strangelove. Meanwhile, Posthuman Blues’s best of 2007 post has allowed me (and now you) to catch up on a very interesting blog I only just started reading, including (just for example) this YouTube clip on catastrophism in the fiction of J.G. Ballard.
