- From a Sci-Fi Standpoint has an interesting post about why science fiction shouldn't be seen as an avenue to teach us science. I don't know if I entirely agree, but it's still interesting.
- This is by far one of the coolest things I have seen in a while. It's called Greater America News and it's essentially a fake news site set in the future. It's not completed, unfortunately, but it has a whole bunch of videos highlighting terrorist attacks on a space elevator, and a whole load of other things. You should check it out. Tis awesome and genius.
- Want to see where popular science fiction and fantasy writers work? Well, go no further than here.
- Identity Theory has an article on how to read rejection letters. I completely agree.
- Interested in some interactive maps of war? Well, this site has some in-depth maps showing the various steps during some of the biggest wars in history. Might be worth a look.
- Booking Mama has a set of Patrick Carman's Atherton Series to give away.
- Suzanne McLeod is giving away a copy of The Cold Kiss of Death.
- Reviewer X is giving away Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink. You can also find a neat publishing story by Ms. Zink here.

You can find more about Silver Phoenix and the giveaway going on here. Prizes include an Amazon gift card!
And I think that's all for this!
