- Terri Windling has asked for some research help over at Emma Bull’s LJ; she’s putting together a reading list to go with an article about orphans, foundlings, changelings, bartered children, etcetera in fiction.
- Literaticat interviews publicity director for Little, Brown Books for Young Readers Elizabeth Eulberg.
- Jen Robinson thanks folks for clicking through and buying books using her amazon affiliate links; she reveals that she uses the money for books. Shaken & Stirred readers, I know you’ll be happy to learn that I use my amazon associates money to order Lush bath products (and once a fancy litter box!). Please, keep on clicking.

- The Urban Pantheist on disappearing bees. (Via Barb)
- Linda Nagata is offering her new YA novel online as a PDF for 5 bucks. (Via Maureen, who recommends her other work highly as being "strange strange.")
- Melvin McCosh, of the most fabulous and strange bookshop ever — his house, has passed away and is remembered in the Star-Tribune. Buying books from him was quite the experience; the first time I was ever taken to McCosh’s, I got stung 50 or so times by mosquitoes in the front yard, while playing with a friend’s daughter. But I still managed to buy a book about Charlie Chaplin, if I’m remembering correctly.
- Jennifer Egan likes Jean Thompson’s collection Throw Like a Girl in the NYT, but Callie was there first. (It’s on my stack.)
- Rachel Swirsky is collecting the names of feminist-friendly SF publications, following another eruption of head-exploding idiocy last week that I will not link to. (If you’re determined to find it, go to Hannah’s and scroll.)
- Ted wants you to give to a worthy, and infuriating, cause.
- Raymond Carver Mad Libs. (Via Maud)
- Tom Bissell on the Loch Ness Monster. (Via CAAF)
And the SBBT kicks off with:

I certainly didn’t mean to imply that there was anything wrong with using your Amazon money for other things, like lush bath products. I happen to use mine for books, is all. (grin)
Oh, I know, I was just teasing. It’s probably a far more sensible use. 🙂
Oh, I know. Teasing right back at you. I think that the nice thing about such bonus money is that you don’t have to use it for sensible use at all. I actually refuse to use mine to buy gifts for other people – I want it to be for my own books. Cheers!
You can buy Lush thru Amazon? I had no idea. Now I know where I’ll spend my next amazon affiliates money.
I’d second the Nagata recommendations.
I hadn’t heard anything about her plans since the last “grown-up” book, so I’m surprised to hear about her YA, but I’ll certainly check it out.
