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
