• I have no idea how Matt at Enter the Octopuss compiles his daily masses of links — but I’m glad that he does!
  • The new Tor Dot Com site — it’s a blog, and a new home for original fiction — has lots of promise. Like many publishers, they’re a wee bit late to the whole social networking party, but Tor’s folks have clearly done their homework. Check out the brand new shorts by John Scalzi and Charlie Stross! These stories both take place in established universes from each writer. While I’m well-versed with Scalzi’s “Old Man’s War” milieu, this is my first encounter with Stross’ “The Laundry” series, and I like it. A lot.
  • I’ve been working my way through Vandermeer’s The New Wierd. I have to admit, with many of the stories in the collection, they’ve outwierded me… or at the least, helped me discover my threshold for curious and odd tales.
  • And I’ve finally cracked open John Twelve HawksThe Traveler. It’s a smart, gripping read… just my kind of summer novel.
