In the coming weeks, if you find something interesting you think everyone should read, drop me a line via the contact form and let me know, or just post it below. Let’s get started:

1) Science fiction writers irked with Amazon.com, redirect links to other booksellers: Amazon vs. Publishers. Authors are caught in the crossfire. I was under the impression the SFWA represents authors not publishing companies. I need to read some more on this, I was not expecting SFWA to choose a side in this manner.

Eleven Million Mile High Dancer2) Suvudu Cage Match 2012: It’s time for another Suvudu cage match. Harry Potter vs. Tyrion Lanister for the finals, anyone?

3) John Ottinger interviews Aliette de Bodard at SFWA: Nice interview with the Nebula Award nominee.

4) Can you trademark a character from a public domain story?: A little legal controversy over the usage of Edgar Rice Burroughs‘ characters.

5) Rejected Star Wars Toys: I seriously want Bantha Slippers.

6) 10 Weirdest Science Fiction Novels That You’ve Never Read: There is probably a really good reason why you haven’t read these… Or have you?

  1. I don’t know whether I’m happy or sad to have never read those sci-fi novels. Some of them sound really messed up, where others sound like they could be legitimately and non-ironically interesting.

  2. I agree, Bibliotropic!

  3. Um, I think I read The Butterfly Kid, and I’m ashamed to admit the Harold Bloom one looks intriguing just because it’s Bloom.
