- Self-Published Reviews has a discussion of self-publishing that isn't exactly rosy.
- WebEcoist has a list of 12 dystopian science fiction films you should all check out. There are a few in there I've never heard of, but now want to see.
- David Steffen asks: What is "literary?" He makes some great points worth considering.
- ShareWorlds (a world-building workshop for teenagers) is back for 2009.
- Mary Robinette Kowal has a top ten list of evil queens. It's a bit old, but still cool.
- The Plenty Principle asks if science fiction is finished as a genre (from a reader's perspective).
- OnlineColleges.net has an interesting list of fifteen of the strangest college courses in America. Some of these courses really are completely pointless, but a handful I'd take in a heartbeat, because they sound fascinating!
And some book giveaways:
- J. Kaye's Book Blog has a copy of Once Bitten by Kalayna Price to giveaway. She also has a copy of The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams to toss out there.
- Reviewer X has a copy of Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon to giveaway.
And there you go. Enjoy!
