This weekend, Friday the 18th through Sunday the 20th, you’ll be able to download my scifi story “Lonely Phoenix” for free. The story is set onboard an interstellar colony ship in its centuries long voyage to a new star. And it involves a … vampire? Well, not like any vampire you know about, that’s just the closest word we have for what he is.

To find out more, you’ll have to download, which you can do all for the price of a click.

So for the past few days I’ve been rewatching the first season of Orphan Black.  There’s a perhaps not entirely reputable website I know that has the episodes.  They’re not the highest quality, but they’re good enough.

Anyway, I just finished watching the episode “Unconscious Selection.” About halfway through I almost cried out when I saw this scene:

Leda

In case you don’t get it immediately, there’s a swan!  I don’t know if it was in early episodes – it probably was – but this was the first time I noticed it.

You have to love shows that put little touches like that in.
