- Kristin Cashore has an excellent essay about writing fantasy online at the Horn Book.
- One of the most interesting obits I've ever read. (Via someone over at twitter, but I can't recall who.)
- Lauren McLaughlin on playing god, and staying true to your characters' humanity. I think this is more applicable to some kinds of works than others, but in general a big YES.
- Some thoughts from Kirk Biglione at Medialoper on the Apple Tablet and how it may or may not hurt the Kindle. I think he's probably right on the money.
- The difference between distributors and wholesalers. Just another reason that while traditional publishing models may be changing, they still have a sizable edge. If you believe the book-as-object will still be around awhile (and I do–I've seen nothing to convince me otherwise).
- Speaking of which, you should give John Green's SLJ essay on the future of books and reading a look, if you haven't.
- And a couple of don't-miss posts from Alan Gratz: the first on S&S eliminating their middle-of-the-country sales reps and the other on the secret to long and happy life.
