- A lovely brief account of a St. Paul panel on teen fiction featuring Tobin Anderson, Pete Hautman and Alison McGhee.
- Please, someone pay Maureen McHugh to do a book just of food writing: "She has dark red hair and those black cat’s eye glasses which are hip now, but which were the bane of my existence in seventh grade. She was not born when I was in seventh grade. When I was her age, I was not making ragu. I still thought creamed spinach was a pretty big deal. I was working two jobs and writing stories that collected rejection slips and taking Chinese lessons so I could move to China. When I got home at night at ten (having left in the morning at seven) I sometimes had glazed doughnuts and beer for dinner. Oddly enough, I was quite slim. But not tall or, obviously, sophisticated." Do yourself a favor and read the whole post.
- Rachel Swirsky wants to know what you love in short stories, and she’s also featured over at Scalzi’s Ficlets.
- Why do I have Roberto Bolano’s Distant Star open in a tab? Anyone?
- Why are plagiarists always so sloppy?

The only plagiarists who are sloppy are the ones who get caught. 😉
Damn, the YA panel was the least publicized event in the history of literature. It would have been great to see them.
Thanks for the link!
I know I’d buy a copy of that book by McHugh. (And in a fair and just universe, that alone would be enough to prompt any publisher.)
