I found a few links to distract us from the Osama onslaught that’s currently going on. Even good news can get tiresome on a 24-hour news cycle. I hope these links serve you well. 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) Why Bother with Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror? Chris Modzelewski writes a thoughtful article on why speculative fiction should be taken seriously.

4) Zombie-Proof Home: It’s perfect!

JUSTIN BLAZIER (on FanLit's staff since September 2009) is a Cyber-Security Analyst/Network Engineer located in Northern Kentucky. Like many fantasy enthusiasts, Justin cut his teeth on authors like Tolkien, Anthony, and Lewis. Due to lack of space, his small public library would often give him their donated SFF books. When he is not reading books he is likely playing board games or Tabletop RPGs. Justin lives in a quiet neighborhood with his wife, their daughter, and Norman the dog.

  1. Yes, the zombie-proof home works just fine, until those pesky undeads remember how to tunnel!
