Hope this Wednesday finds you all well, and my links keep you from doing any work. 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) Illustrations from A DANCE WITH DRAGONS by George R.R. Martin: Aidan over at A Dribble of Ink always finds the most beautiful artwork to share.
2) China Miéville Talks about Scholarly Genre Fiction: Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist compiled this post very nicely for Miéville fans
3) John Joseph Adams Buys Lightspeed and Fantasy Magazines: Adams is an incredible editor. These magazines could not be in better hands.
4) Barnes & Noble NOOK Tablet Unveiled: I will be buying one of the new tablet e-readers, I just haven’t decided which one. I’m still leaning towards the Kindle Fire, but I may wait a few weeks after release to see what people say.
5) National Novel Writing Month has begun: Want to write a novel? This is the month to do it! At Suvudu, Shawn Speakman talks about why he loves NaNoWriMo. Have any of you ever tried NaNoWriMo?
I’ve done Nanowrimo and I’m participating this month too. It’s fun. There really isn’t a down-side that I can see.
The China Mieville lecture is scholarly indeed. I had to listen to it at lunch because I had to take notes, really. And did you read the comments? One person said there was no humor! What’s that about?
