- Carl Zimmer’s readers have been sending in their science-themed tattoos. The photos make me unbelievably happy.
- Ann Patchett talks to the Atlantic Monthly’s Abigail Cutler about Truth & Beauty, her friendship with Lucy Grealy, and the tempest the book stirred up at Clemson; a really fascinating interview. I do think it’s interesting that Patchett apparently still believes Go Ask Alice was a real memoir, uh. (Via Erin.)
- Amazing weird photos of fishwives and bunnygirls and things by Ione Rucquoi. (Via Margo Lanagan.)
- Where are the bad girls of kids’ fiction?
- Paul Di Filippo reviews Matt Ruff’s Bad Monkeys for the Wash Post and really, really likes it.
- Jane Espenson in The New Republic on why the surest way to succeed in the mainstream with SFF is to stick to the Hero’s Journey. Thoughts?
- Publishing has always been a business. Writing for money has ever been tough.

Thanks for the link to that Patchett interview. Fascinating, like you say. What a terrible experience at Clemson.
Gwenda, we did a feature on Ione Rucqoi’s “Birds, Fishwives, and Bunnygirls” show on the Endicott blog last month: http://endicottstudio.typepad.com/endicott_redux/2007/07/the-photographi.html.
It kicked off the whole run of posts we’ve been doing on artists who work with animal & nature imagery and themes of transformation.
Ione is a friend and neighbor of mine here in Devon. (Many of the people in the pictures are neighbors too.) The photographs are quite large, sumptuously colored, and quite extraordinary when you see them in person.
