I’m back from my hiatus due to zombie attack. It turns out they weren’t zombies after all, just new neighbors. I had a hard time explaining why I Molotov-cocktailed their eldest boy. That dude needs to get some more sun… geez. Oh well, it’s nothing a fruit basket and a “Get Well Soon” card won’t fix. Despite the false zombies, I did manage to find a few links to share. 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) SF Signal’s NPR top 100 Flow Chart: I love me some flow charts, and this is a dandy that Fanlit reviewer Ryan gave me a heads-up on.

3) Aspen Mountain Press in Trouble: SFWA publisher Aspen Mountain Press has gotten into some trouble. Take note if you happen to follow any of their authors.

4) Border’s Employees Air Their Grievances: A bit of sour grapes, and may shed some light on why the company was struggling. I sympathize with the employees, but this was just a little unprofessional and not that funny. Borders was my favorite big chain bookstore, and I’m sad to see it go.

5) Sirius Black up for Adoption: Yeah, you read that right. I’m pretty sure this fellow will find a home quickly.

6) Suvudu Casts Star Wars: Heir to the Empire: Nathan Fillion could play Leia and it would still be awesome.
