Finished reading Kelly Link's "Stranger Things Happen" a couple
of hours ago. My review has just been posted. Suffice to say,
it is a fucking brilliant book, with lovely, glittering stories, that
are like nothing else you're likely to read. Off to bed now.
Just did a which muppet are you quiz. Turns out I'm Kermit:
You are Kermit!
Though you're technically the star, you're pretty mellow and don't mind letting others share the spotlight. You are also something of a dreamer.
While, as we all know, it ain't easy being green, I still have to say: Yay me.
As is my habit on the first day of the month, I took the day off.
I did, however, sally forth to the estimable Pikarski literary
agency, and came back with several intriguing books. Most
anticipated of these was Carey's Kushiel's Chosen. Some of you
will recall how much I liked its predecessor, Kushiel's Dart.
Also of note is the fact that I got my greedy hands on Perdido
Street Station again, thus insuring that The Scar will come my
way soon. As soon as my department can handle a book of its
size, I am SO publishing PSS.
Other than that, not much of note. Am very much looking

Let's start off with some essential weblog links:
Patrick Neilsen Hayden's Weblog
PNH is who I want to be when I grow up. He's a senior editor
at TOR, and a wise man.
Neil Gaiman's Blog is pretty much the coolest thing
ever for people like me, who are fans of The Neil.
Schism Matrix is where Bruce Sterling posts links daily.
I mean, he's Bruce fuckin' Sterling!
Well, gooly gee, it's a weblog. Sure aren't enough of those around huh?
And it's in English, because most of the content I'll be linking to is in
English, and because Blogger is easier to use in English. This weblog
will not deal solely with SF and Fantasy related stuff. It's here for whatever
I feel like saying, on whatever topic. Could be sports, film, tv. Could even
be (shudder) politics.
No guarantees on how often I'll be updating this. I actually started this
weblog over a year ago, and abandoned before going public with it. So
we'll see how it goes.
