Preface

“In this universe the night was falling; the shadows were lengthening towards an east that would not know another dawn. But elsewhere the stars were still young and the light of morning lingered; and along the path he once had followed, Man would one day go again.”

Arthur C Clarke “The City and the Stars” (1956)

It’s said that you need to devote 10,000 hours to a subject to become an expert. I’ve also heard it said that you need to write 1,000,000 words before you can expect to write anything good. We learn by doing. There aren’t 1,000,000 words on this site – yet – but there are a few, and I hope you like some of them.

Earthlight is probably the best place to start.
