Well, I thought I would bring this feature back. I’m not going to make it as big as I did in the past, but hopefully it will be of use to folks. Here goes:
- Charles Stross and John Scalzi have posted their opinions on the issue of lateness that has GRRM’s fans all twisted in knots and GRRM a bit irritated.
- SF Signal has their latest mindmeld feature up asking various authors who their literary influences are in the realm of science fiction.
- Scifi Chick has a short interview with Eliza Dushku from Dollhouse.
- Climb the Sky talks about magic and it’s many interesting points.
- Locus Online has an article about why science fiction often fails at predicting things. It’s interesting, to say the least. I take issue with some of the points made, though. I don’t think science fiction is so much as failure in predicting a lot of things, just not very good at picking good dates. Reality dictates that we’ll conquer space eventually, just not on the time frame provided by science fiction writers…
- And some random science for you all: Japanese coral can apparently change back and forth between sexes as needed based on their environment. What the heck is it with the environment and sex changes?
- SF Signal asks what your favorite bookstore is. It’s old, but so be it. Mine, as I’ve mentioned before, is either Bookshop Santa Cruz or Logos in Santa Cruz (or Borderlands Books in San Francisco or Powell’s City of Books in Portland, OR). What about you? What is your favorite bookstore and why?
And there you have it! Hope you enjoy the links.
