A steward shows me onto the cruise ship’s bridge and introduces me to the Captain, who reaches out to shake my hand.  “You’re that science journalist I’ve been hearing so much about.”

“Science-fiction book-blogger, actually.  I’ve heard your ship’s library has a copy of Space and Time Magazine that I’d like to read.”

“You know, I bet you’d like to write a story about the AI we use to manage the ship.”

“Not really, everyone has a HAL-9000 series these days.”

“You wouldn’t believe the things our computer can do.  Adaptive steering to keep the deck level and prevent seasickness among the passengers …”

I’m bored, and I zone out whatever the captain is saying.  I look out the window to the decks below.  Two young girls climb over the railing and leap into the ocean.  A third girl, running at full speed, vaults over…

A trio of explorers land on the asteroid, Ceres, in hopes of explaining the mysterious lights detected on its surface, only to discover more questions than answers.

Here’s a list of things I hope to do in 2017.  I’ll place a poll below, so you can tell me which ones actually sound interesting.

red-sun#1:  Finish my magazine quest.  I’ve read issues of 34 different SFF magazines, but I’ve only reviewed 20 of them so far.
