- Some new books by Muslim authors we can look forward to in 2019. Me? I’m waiting for The Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty, the sequel to her excellent The City of Brass.
- Some words: Sphinx, sphincter (yes they have the same etymological root)
Yeah, not a lot to add from the past week. Everything is Christmas wishes, end-of-year lists, and the ineffectual flailing our 45th POTUS. I expect things will pick up again in the new year.
