January 18, 1938

My favorite science fiction magazine, hands down, is Astounding Stories, ever since F. Orlin Tremaine became the editor. The stories are better, and more interesting, than in the other magazines. If I ever manage to get a story published in Astounding, I'll know I've made it as a science fiction writer. John W. Campbell, Jr. recently started working as the editor, with Tremaine being the editorial director. Not only has the magazine not suffered, it's been getting even better.

Officially, the magazine comes out on the third Wednesday of every month. However, our store only gets magazine deliveries on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so we get Astounding on the third Tuesday of every month -- which happens to be today. I've finally got my hands on this month's issue, the February 1938 issue, and it's a good one. For one thing, it includes the last installment of Doc Smith's novel Galactic Patrol. Now that I've finished it, I feel sort of let down. I hope he writes more Galactic Patrol novels. Anyway, I saved the last five issues of Astounding, so now I can go back and re-read Galactic Patrol all at once.

Apart from the Smith novel, the best stories in this issue are Raymond Z. Gallun's "Mercutian Adventure" and Eando Binder's "The Anti-Weapon". I had a letter printed in the December 1937 issue, and I've been writing one every month since then. Let me tell you, it is extremely pleasant seeing my name printed in the magazine. Maybe someday it'll be above a story.

Don't give up!

Please keep posting to your blog -- I'm interested to hear more about the stories you're planning to write. I'll bet you start selling them sooner than you think.

Hey – nice blog, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are using. I’m currently using Wordpress for a few of my sites but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?

NATO takes over command of military operations in Libya

[b]NATO is taking over command of military operations in Libya from coalition forces, world media reported Sunday.[/b]

The UN Security Council imposed the no-fly zone over Libya on March 17, along with ordering "all necessary measures" to protect civilians from Muammar Gaddafi's attacks on rebel-held towns.

The 28 NATO ambassadors met on Sunday to decide on further military plans in Libya.

The United States transfers command for a no-fly zone over Libya to NATO, while coalition forces will continue to protect civilian population from attacks by Gaddafi forces.

The military operation in Libya, codenamed Odyssey Dawn, has been conducted so far jointly by 13 states, including the United States, Britain and France.

NATO members decided on Thursday to assume responsibility for the enforcement of a no-fly zone in Libya, but could not agree on taking full command of all military operations in the country.

Meanwhile, leaders of the 27 European Union states on Thursday issued a statement saying the EU stood ready to assist in building a new Libya "in cooperation with the United Nations, the Arab League, the African Union and others."
