(Sort of on-topic)
Paizo publishing has a line of pulp fiction novels that reproduce some of the stories from the 1920-1950s & beyond. Many of these books have been out of print for a long time when Paizo picked up the rights. Not all of the line is science fantasy, but they do a pretty good job of describing the books.
I've read the one's they have from C.L. Moore, G. Gygax, & bought a few others (too little free reading time, ARGH). I recommend the "Northwest of Earth" by C. L. Moore for a mix of ray guns and fantasy magic.
You can find them here: http://paizo.com/planetStories
(I'm just a customer of that company, not in any way compensated for acting the "drooling fanboy" role).
Hope that helps, Max!
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
