Just popping in to say that I’m really liking io9, the new science fiction concern of the Gawker empire. The contributions of the extremely smart Charlie Anders–who’s also on this year’s Tiptree jury–and editor Annalee Newitz are particularly fun. And the site’s top ten most anticipated SF titles of 2008 included several of the books my own hot little hands can’t wait for (especially Karen Joy Fowler’s Wit’s End, which will be fabulous).
Thus far the contributors seem to be playing nice with others, something that could never be said about many of the Gawker tentacles*… and I hope it stays like that or at least doesn’t get mean in an uninteresting way. But, hey, Scalzi’s watching that so I don’t have to.
*Y’all know how I love the Fine Lines at Jezebel.
