A couple of quick plugs that may interest SF fans:

* Season 2 of "The 4400" starts tomorrow (Tuesday) at 8pm on Sky One.

* Bujold's novella "Winterfair Gifts" is now available to buy as an ebook at $2.49. Actually, it may have been out for a while, but the last I'd heard it was only printed in an anthology. I haven't read it yet, but it's a wedding story that's set between "A Civil Campaign" and "Diplomatic Immunity" - that should be specific enough for people who've read those books, but vague enough to avoid spoilers for people who haven't :) That website also has "The Vor Game" as an ebook - for some reason, that seems to be the only one in the series that hasn't been reprinted as a paperback recently, so it's the only one I'm missing.

Edit: Also, I've just seen a trailer for "Rock School" (Saturdays, 12:25 on Channel 4), which is basically doing a real life version of the film "School of Rock". What's interesting is that it's set at my old school (CH), as described in my previous post, so you might want to glance at it to see the ... distinctive uniforms that pupils wear there.
