I’ve been posting too much over at Deb’s blog, talking about Australian SF and such. If you’re interested, there’s a link somewhere over there on the right. In the meantime , I’ve spent a little time surfing the next and come across a couple cool things:
Salon’s Laura Miller loves Kelly’s Magic for Beginners. I do too, and so will you.
Mark’s list link
Mark over at Locus Online is intending to add information about editors to his book listings, and to put together a list of work by cover artists for each year. These are the reasons why Mark deserved his Hugo, and why we should all love what he does. He’s one of those people who does cool, useful stuff without anyone much noticing. It takes a lot of work, and he does it all pretty much on his own and unpaid too.
Ellen over at SciFiction has just posted a terrific new M. Rickert story, “Anyway”, which you should check out.
And a comment. Yesterday I received the October Realms of Fantasy in the mail. It’s the alternate issue, the one that comes without the soft porn cover, and it has a cool story by Tim Pratt and Greg van Eekhout. It’s called “Robots and Falling Hearts”, and is a lovely piece. I read it pretty quickly last night, and liked it very much. I think I might post a kind of review tonight or tomorrow, but I’d like to re-read it first.
