The email is vanquished. If you didn’t get a response to something and you should’ve, send me another email. I found at least a couple of legitimate ones in the spam files and suspect a few more got nuked to the archive by my overzealous clicking. Also, now send me new messages! I have practically no email! And I vow to keep up with it from now on!
Small Beer Press has newsiness galore, including the goods on
their 2007 books (Liz Hand! John Crowley! Laurie Marks! The Interstitial Anthology! Pre-order now!) and the new, 10th anniversary issue of Lady Churchill’s Rosebud Wristlet (with a new, slightly ricin-obsessed advice column by yours dearly). A cold finds the Cinetrix doing that voodoo that she do do so well,
dishing up the commentary on some recent films: Borat, The Science of Sleep and Brick.
Justine explains point of view.
CNN has the truth about happiness (ahem). And, of course, they provide the salary cap because how can you calculate happiness without talking moolah? The question’s only half-sarcastic; you can only half discuss it without going there or relying on platitudes. But, still, I prefer Gretchen at the Happiness Project’s approach.
Matt Cheney’s Holiday Book Picks — I agree with all of these (except the fourish I haven’t read yet).
Dave Moles does the Science Fiction Book Club list. (I thought about trying to come up with less sinister phrasing, but am too tired.) I’m actually really looking forward to the Peter Pan sequel,
Peter Pan in Scarlet, after reading this review. It sounds fab.
James Bond and cryptozoology. And, finally,
damn interesting. (Via La Gringa.)
