SFX 157 column

“Free Reads”, from the June 2007 issue. Also another review.

(The September issue arrived yesterday, so it must be three months since this one appeared … er, mustn’t it?)

An experiment

Probably the Ansible site would be more widely accessible if readers could change the size of the body type. I’ve made a first stab at this with an alternative version of Ansible 240 whose internal link menu (Go to: Next Previous …) includes the extra items Larger and — after enlargement — Smaller. Any comments?

Cookies must be enabled. The font size can’t be reduced below the usual 10 points but can be increased indefinitely — it looks a bit silly when it gets larger than the internal headings, but who am I to stand in the way of your artistic impulses? Other issues of Ansible are not affected, but will be if I go ahead with this.

Later: While I’m at it, there’s also a serif/sanserif font choice.

Here you are. More sad deaths, alas, but also a surprise contribution from Ursula Le Guin.
