Unexpected Consequences of Blogging Nuketown

by Ken Newquist / March 4, 2005

When I launched Nuketown's latest design in June, I consciously switched it away from an "issue-based" model in which content was published on a set schedule, to a blog-like model, in which content was published when I felt like it. The goal, on my end, was to relieve some of the self-imposed stress of trying to meet a deadline, while simultaneously making the ol'thermonuclear burg more timely by posting every few days.

Nuketown's Libertarian Science Fiction Page Launches

by Ken Newquist / February 28, 2004

Nuketown has a launched a libertarian science fiction page collecting commentary, book reviews, movie reviews and links from around the Web.

The url of the Web page is:

The impetus behind this page was a speech I gave at a meeting of the Pocono Libertarians a few years back on "Libertarian Themes in Science Fiction." As a life-long science fiction fan, and later a libertarian, the unity of the two subjects always seemed obvious to me. But at that meeting I discovered that many of my fellow libertarian-minded citizens either hadn't heard of the books and movies I was mentioning, or hadn't thought of them in a libertarian light.

The NukeShop Returns!

by Ken Newquist / November 23, 2003

After a very, very long hiatus, the NukeShop is finally back in business.

Here's how it works. We've got a bunch of links to If you follow the link to Amazon, and buy the product, we get a small cut of the purchase price. That money then goes to support Nuketown, primarily by differing hosting costs. Since Nuketown is primarily funded out of my wallet, any little bit helps ... and the checks can help a lot.

What's a NukeBlog?

by Ken Newquist / January 8, 2003

So what's a NukeBlog?

Good question. In thinking about Nuketown, I've found that there really wasn't any place for me to post quick hits about topics currently on my mind.

Admittedly, I could've just used "editorials" for that, but personally, I view an editorial as something a little more thought out, a little more polished. While a blog is something more off-the-cuff or spur of the moment.

So I decided to add a category for "NukeBlogs" to the site. I might post daily ... or I might post monthly -- we'll have to see what happens.
