- Things are busy, busy, but the Winter Blog Blast Tour and its amazing author interviews are coming veryyyyyy soon. As in, next week. Here I’ll be featuring Jane Yolen and Adam Stemple in a joint interview, Elizabeth Knox, Christopher Barzak and Micol Ostow. The full schedule will be circulating later on this week and I’ll keep you posted.
- Tonight, we will not costume, but we will be busy busy. First, drinks for the neighbor’s birthday, then full-on trivia madness as we serve on trivia checkpoint duty for crazed, costumed Alleycat bike racers. Photos if I can get the crappy digital camera to function properly.
- The lovely Carrie Frye hosts Kelly and Gavin at About Last Night, each with five scary (or, er, non-scary in Gavin’s case) book picks.
- Meanwhile, the also-lovely Kassia Kroszer hosts Matt Cheney, Jeff and Ann VanderMeer talking about the first Best American Fantasy.
- A new ish of LCRW wings its way to World Fantasy Con. I burned the midnight elbow grease with this edition of Dear Aunt G, which had lots of fun questions (oh, Haddayr).
- Nic Clarke has a fine review of Ellen Kushner’s The Privilege of the Sword over at Strange Horizons — I finally got around to reading this one last month and keep failing to mention how much I loved it. A marvelous book that anyone of taste will enjoy.
- Christmas wish list: My So-Called Life boxed set.
- Jules and Eisha with a great Halloween post on the famous Bell Witch.
- Superagent Ginger Clark guests on Nathan Bransford’s blog discussing the etiquette of handling an offer of representation. Ginger = smart cookie.
- Slate does the "what haven’t you read survey?" with a bunch of interesting author-types (note to Christopher, of late absorbed in the first book in the Aegypt cycle: this includes John Crowley, p. 2).
- Carolyn has pushed the button and a new issue of Hot Metal Bridge has magically appeared. Get your hot little eyes on it.
- Ted Chiang on Paul Linebarger (aka Cordwainer Smith) over at WithBoots.
- J.L. Bell on Dumbledore and gay characters in children’s fantasy generally; good post, but be sure to check out the conversation in the comments between M.T. Anderson and Bell.
- And tomorrow Endicott Studio is relaunching the Journal of Mythic Arts in a format that will allow the posting of fresh content year-round and not just quarterly. Can’t wait to see the new, sweet style.

Uh-oh. I can’t even remember what my question was, now.
MY SO-CALLED LIFE gets a re-release?
