Pike Place Market: It's an old farmers' market that has survived several attempts by developers to demolish.

Since most goods sold here are produce and fish, a visitor won't have much to buy here. But it's the atmosphere here, complete with tacky souvenir stalls and quick ethnic food restaurants, that I enjoyed, as I wandered through its cramped halls and steep ramps. Downstairs stores have some unusual stores, selling such goods as Ichiro baseball cards from his Japanese years, or items made for left-handed people. If driving, make sure to park at the official Pike Place Market lot - it's too easy to park at a nearby law office garage and pay exorbitant rates, as I did!
It's still preserved the way it was back then, and I could find some coffee blends exclusive to this particular store. T-Mobile WiFi Internet service is a nice concession to modern times though. The Space Needle is a good place for a first-time visitor to climb, with wonderful views of the Olympic Mountains to the west and Mt. Rainier to the southeast. My favorite experience though was visiting the Pacific Science Center, which holds various special exhibits; when I visited, Game On!
Capitol Hill: It's an alternative neighborhood, along the lines of San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury, and a gay neighborhood, similar to San Francisco's Castro, rolled into one. The progressive character of this neighborhood was evident in the numerous anti-Bush posters and signs I could find, despite the presence of a Republican Street. I loved hanging out here with my bisexual local friend, doing window shopping along Broadway and bar-hopping along Pike and Pine Streets.
My favorite hangout was the Wildrose Bar, a lesbian bar in continuous operation since with an extensive food and drinks menu. Straights and men are welcome there too. One downside in this area may be a shortage of parking. Vistas: Seattle has many vantage points where one can enjoy the views of downtown, the Space Needle, Puget Sound, and the surrounding mountains. Another point was Gasworks Park, a former gas power plant turned into a park, where I could see downtown beyond Lake Union, with all its floating airplanes and houseboats one of those houseboats was featured in the movie Sleepless in Seattle.
Even driving from Capitol Hill down into downtown, I could see the water and the Olympics through the canyon of skyscrapers - a nice sight always. Shopping: I concentrated my shopping at the Pacific Place, a nice downtown mall with plenty of shops and restaurants and parking.

The flagship Nordstrom store, which is connected to Pacific Place, was also worth a visit. Over in the University District, where I did not spend as much time this time, I also found the University Village at the intersection of 45th St NE and Montlake; my favorite store there is Zovo Lingerie, where I picked up some camisoles and leggings and they have lots more stuff.

Museum of Glass: Located in Tacoma, it houses glass exhibits, as well as a live demonstration of glass art production. The live demonstration, and the outside art bridge, are wonderful, but the rest of the exhibits are not as awe-inspiring. Boeing Factory Tour: This one is up in Everett at Paine Field, showcasing the assembly line for Boeing's larger aircraft, such as the and the This was probably my very first Seattle area sight way back in , and it was definitely awe-inspiring! Bainbridge Island: The island itself felt too sleepy for me. Once landing at Bainbridge Island, I can continue on to Poulsbo, which is a Scandinavian village to the north; the streets there are named after Viking rulers, and I liked looking at its bakeries and shops.
Rainier: It looks majestic - and near - from Seattle, but it easily stretches out into an all-day trip. I found this a bit of a disappointment though, having seen similar peaks back home in California. But seeing snow on the ground, even in July, was a definite refresher, and the waterfalls here looked just as refreshing. Other sights: I have yet to cover most of these sights. More excuses to return to Seattle in the future.
I found that the Fourth of July fireworks were going off in the bright twilight, even at 10PM.
The God of Shattered Glass
By contrast, my previous visit took place in October, with early sunsets, chilly temperatures, and cloudiness though no rain, thankfully. Seattle's residential streets have many mini-roundabouts, and are rather very tight. It's advisable to get the smallest rental car possible. I booked an economy car turned out to be a Chevrolet Aveo , and appreciated its size and maneuverability on every small side street. Speaking of driving, traffic jams are possible, even on weekends. It felt a lot like driving in Los Angeles. In addition, freeway exits are both on the left and on the right, making it confusing.
But I feel that Seattle drivers are much better behaved than Los Angeles drivers. Having local friends always helps at any destination, and for me, Seattle was no exception, especially when I was exploring the Capitol Hill area. I had two friends to guide me through Seattle, and yet another to help me with Olympia, the state capital one hour away.

Though the constantly cloudy climate will get me if I dared to move there plus, I don't have much of a chance with Microsoft, Boeing, or other major Puget Sound employers , I will look forward to many more trips to the area, especially during the summer. I spent two weeks in seattle with my family and this place is so beautiful and clean.
I couldnt believe that the staff was so minimal on such a busy holiday weekend, but it was.
There was a line of people trying to get checked in and you could tell that the staff was overworked with the phone ringing off the hook! I was so tired I forgot to give my member number and was never asked, which should be a common question on check in, but I was just thrown a key and that was that. I parked my car in the underground parking and felt it would be safe cause there is a gate. It was vandalized, must have been by a customer, and there was soda and gum on the car. However, Kevin and I will be ordering stuff. If you are thinking of getting something feel free to check with us first to make sure that ours was OK.
And now I see that I have gone on way too long and am keeping you from all of this fabulous guest content that I have lined up. So without further ado, let issue commence!

The Return of Mr. Wright's political extravaganza continues. I still have a copy of it, somewhere under the shifting stacks. It contained essays, a story or two and, I think, a poem. It was published as a mass-market paperback. As, some years later, was a similarly fine volume of SF criticism, Explorations of the Marvellous , edited by Peter Nicholls. One essay, by James Blish, asked what the social justification of SF was. He began by demolishing some familiar codicils of the Gernsbackian contract. I don't have the issue to hand, so to speak, but here's how I recollect its general thrust.
