This volume contains a variety of essays about Florida literature and history by scholars from across the state representing every kind of institution of higher learning, from community colleges to small liberal arts institutions to large universities. The first section, Pedagogy, explores the challenges facing Florida teachers at both the high school and undergraduate levels. The essays in Old Florida take on a myriad of texts that provide evaluations of Florida and its culture from the 1540s through the 1950s and include evaluations of Zora Neale Hurston, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, and Pat Frank. The final section, Contemporary Florida, continues to identify the state’s place within larger literary, cultural, and political traditions.

<i>Sense of Wonder: A Century of Science Fiction</i>

Originally posted by steve_mollmann at <i>Sense of Wonder: A Century of Science Fiction</i>
I was quite surprised today to find this waiting for me in my mailbox at school:



It's a honking big book, just slightly smaller than an 8.5x11 sheet of paper, and 991 pages long.  And with small, small print.  It features a ton of sf stories, going back to Samuel Butler and Mary Shelley, and up to Charles Stross and Robert Sawyer, plus a variety of essays on all things sf.  It's supposed to be the ideal all-in-one sf textbook, edited by a man who frequently teaches sf courses but can't find a textbook that does everything he wants.

Of course, Sense of Wonder features my own small contribution, "Space Travel in Science Fiction," a short essay that does exactly what it says on the tin, providing an overview that goes from Verne and Wells up to the mundane sf movement and sneaks in mentions of as many of my favorite sf stories as possible.  (So pleased to get the "Surface Tension" mention in there!)  You can tell how much of a whopper this book is from the fact that my 12-page double-spaced, 3,200-word essay fits neatly into a two-page spread.

The book looks good, and maybe someday I'll teach a class where this book would be an appropriate text!

I've Always Wondered About This - Which One is True?

Bad Credit - How Do Open Lines Of Credit And Accounts Affect My Score?

It also will depend on the model of credit assessment whether an open account affects your credit score negatively or not. This means that for some lenders an open account will equal a negative factor and for others it may be positive. Thus, finding a balance may be difficult but it is not impossible provided that you understand how to maintain some sort of equilibrium between open accounts and the balances on them.
