- Paul Witcover on Adam Gopnik’s piece on PKD, particularly focusing on his assertion that French criticism "saved" Dick. Check out the comments. (My "favorite" part of the piece is about how genre can only support one genius at a time. Even just typing it sends my bullshit meter off the charts.)
- Cassette tape culture. (Via Medialoper.)
- Eve’s Alexandria on Nicola Griffith’s Slow River.
- Just a reminder about tomorrow’s One Shot World Tour.
- Alan DeNiro has released "The Stations," his epic speculative poem online and invites people to read it or "consider it a word-carcass to be scavenged" (under Creative Commons usage guidelines). The future is now.
- Over at Sarah’s, guest blogger Michael Koryta has a heap of favorite noir quotes from all sorts of authors, including Dennis Lehane and Laura Lippman.
- Cynthia Leitich Smith has returned from her blogcation. Let there be rejoicing.

Whoopsie! I wondered when you found the time.
So, if genre can only support one genius at a time, who’s in line to take over when Gene Wolfe dies?
And how did Dick and Le Guin and Delany and Tiptree and Russ and Charnas manage to write at the same time without the world imploding?
I also love the assertion that such geniuses are ostracized by their peers in SF. Ha!
Crap. You know what that means, Gwenda, don’t you? We’re not geniuses.
Hee. Tell me something I didn’t figure out from my writing time today…
Luckily, genre always has exactly two genius readers….
