Leonard Nimoy turns 81 years old today. He introduced us to Spock, directed one of the best "Star Trek" films, and sang us the story of "The Hobbit." He's done so much, it's almost impossible to list every accomplishment here. He's even still going strong in the sci-fi world with a recurring role in "Fringe." Thanks for all you've given us sci-fi fans, Leonard. Happy Birthday!
Nachu Bhatnagar is a huge fan of Harry Turtledoves alternate history series, "The War that Came Early." Sadly, he has terminal cancer and may not live to see the release of the next book in the series. His friend contacted Turtledove, asking for an advance copy.
Turtledove did him one better. Not only did he send Bhatnagar the advance copy, he promised to call and personally tell him how the series will end.
