Here are a few links to start off May. Hopefully you’ll find them of interest.
- John Ottinger has another edition of Inside the Blogosphere up (w/ me as one of the contributors). The question this week was: “What is your reviewing process? Take us from the moment you receive a book till you post the final review, and the how, why’s and wherefores of that process.”
- The Antick Musings has a fantastic list of sales figures for various genre titles. You should definitely check it out. Book sales are still alive and kicking. And you might find a new book to read!
- Check out some of this gorgeous fantasy comic art! (Thanks to SF Signal)
- Here’s an interesting list of post-apocalyptic novels. Some of these I’ve never heard of and if you’re into that genre you might want to give them a look!
- Storytellers Unplugged has a list of twenty-five things about being a writer. (I think I got this one from SF Signal)
- Bits of Ink has an interesting post about blogging, books, and the future which might be worth taking a look. Such interesting topics such as getting paid to give positive reviews show up there.
- Here is some really in-depth discussion of cyborgs and postmodernity (and other literary mumbo jumbo).
- Damned Conjurer asks: why is science fiction looked down upon?
- Delany has an interesting essay on race and science fiction in the New York Review of Science Fiction. Might be worth checking out.
- The Spectacle asks: what makes good science fiction? What do you think?
- Savvy Verse & Wit has a copy of Tea and Other Ayama Na Tales by Eleanor Bluestein up for grabs.
And there you have it!
