- Holly posts about the narrative functions served by werewolves. Having just watched Blood & Chocolate a couple of nights ago, I can think of a couple of other nonflattering ones (and I believe all the Readercon team’s were represented with the exceptions of 4 and 5). (You know, it actually wasn’t as bad as I expected. Clearly nothing to do with the book, but at least they made use of the beautiful European buildings.)
- What do you know? Girls and boys have equal aptitudes for math.
- Superstar-in-waiting Ben Rosenbaum is interviewed by the Washington Post about his new collection, The Ant King and Other Stories, and acquits himself very well. Visit his blog for links to more recent press.
- Gwyneth Jones lists her top 10 science fiction novels by women in The Guardian. This is a solid list, to be sure, though some are proposing to generate a version with more recent stuff, which I also support. Any list with Sarah Canary on it is okay by me though.
- Elizabeth Bear asks if there’s a generation gap in SF, in which older writers read their compatriots and vice versa. It’s an interesting thought.
- Visit the Cotsen Children’s Library at Princeton’s Water Babies show, of water-themed children’s book art, online.

- Cassie is embarking on an insane research-related project of reading only novels/books produced during or about the Victorian Era. Lob her some suggestions.
- Some great opening sentences of SF. (Via Scott.)

I’ve got your back.
Note that the Gwyneth Jones piece is from 2003.
Thanks, Dave — wonder if she’d change it up with anything published since then. Especially as counterpoint to Itzkoff’s personal best (which winded up being a men’s only list, right?), it strikes me as a pretty good list.
