- First, I put up a review of the Fairy Tale Review’s blue issue over the weekend (or um, it’s right below this post); read and buy, my friends. I’d also love to hear from anyone else who’s read it.
- When being wrong feels so good, who wants to be right? Ed: it’s okay. Who knows where those books would have ended up if not for you? You rescued them. Dude, you are fiction’s hero.
- Max over at The Millions has seen J.T. Leroy and still isn’t sure whether he’s a real person. That takes skill.
- The Donald Maas Agency’s Jennifer Jackson on "The Proper Care and Feeding of Your Literary Agent" at Romancing the Blog. (Doesn’t she have a great photo?)
- The new Chizine is live, featuring the winners of its annual short story contest, which was judged by Hannah Wolf Bowen, Kelly Link and Elizabeth Bear. Early word is good.
- Losing sleep is bad.
- Le Cineclub on Dandelion, in which Lauren and Emma sort of disagree and two peonies are awarded.
- Da Vinci and the science behind Earthshine.
- Jeannette Winterson on touring.
- Meghan McCarron, moody and wise beyond her years.
- Poems to read while drinking whisky, supposedly. But who reads poetry when they’re drinking a good whisky?

Aw, Gwenda I’m blushin’. Moodily blushin’.
Have you read any J.T. LeRoy? I read Heart is Deceitful about three years ago, and at the time I really liked it. As a work of fiction, I thought it pulled off this fabulous combination of innocence and, for lack of a better word, horror. The end was crap, but otherwise I dug. So I can’t decide if I give a shit about whether J.T. is real or not. Because I like the books better as pure fiction. I don’t quite get why we need this weird figure attached, except as a cynical, if brilliant, marketing ploy.
I think it’s sort of the same motivation behind everyone immediately trying to unmask the Dark Cabal. At any rate, I have read little to no Leroy and don’t really have a pony in the boxing ring on this one. However, I think Dana at #1HS is hilarious.
