- The secret history of the flying carpet. (Scroll down.) (Via the returned from hiatus Jeff Ford.)
- Listmixer, via Bud Parr; I’m not entirely sure I’m organized enough to use something like this, but it’s an interesting idea. Basically, it takes a bunch of things you bookmark to read later and keeps the links for thirty days (or more) and you can browse at leisure.
- Font reveals personality. (Via Bookninja.)
- Toni’s cat is really smart. (Yes, I realize it’s slippery slope linking to other people’s cat stories on the internet, but it’s a funny, funny story.)
- The Los Angeles Times Book Prizes. Lots of good stuff here, including a little book called Garner, which you should read, and Karen Fisher’s A Sudden Country, which comes highly recommended by Karen Joy Fowler, she of impeccable taste. The YA list is also full of good stuff, including the top three Printz books and a couple of others from translation that look dead interesting.
- Great pulp, paperback, advertising and pin-up images. (Via Pooks.)
- Lauren on the Roe V. Wade for men debate.
- Hedda Gabler adapted with robots. (Via Maud.)
- Matt Cheney reproduces his nonrealist fiction presentation from AWP.
- Rebranding adult fiction for the YA market. (Via Bookninja again.)
- Newish, fabulous online comic Married to the Sea.
1 thought on “Tuesday Hangovers”
Regarding the YA shortlist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prizes, the Swedish and German novels are excellent, and I’m pleased to see the long-needed international flavour of the list.
