I’ve gathered a few interesting tidbits from around the web. Be sure to let me know if you find something interesting you think everyone should read, by dropping me a line via the contact form, or just post it below. Let’s get started:
1) Books-A-Million snubs DC Comics: Not sure how I feel about this one. I can certainly see where these big stores are coming from, but something about it feels kind of icky. Exclusive deals is something B&N and BAM do all the time. Seems like sour grapes to pitch a fit when Amazon does it.
2) 10 Words that Came from Science Fiction, Not Science.: Io9 always has fun articles like this.
4) British Fantasy Award Chair Steps Down: There is definitely some controversy around the BFA this year. Hopefully this will put an end to a lot of it, and they can move on.
5) A Drible of Ink Features King of Thorns Cover Art: I’m with Aidan on this one. Something about this cover makes me really want to read this book. Though I’m not a huge fan of books revealing major plot advances in their title.
6) Gone Reading: A charity that focuses on providing books to those that do not have access to them. It’s difficult to imagine that illiteracy and general access to books is still a big issue, but it is. Here’s how you can help.
