A little bit of catch up. A variety of things, including the college tournament games (no, not basketball — the WCHA and CCHA tournaments), had me occupied. Book reviews forthcoming as all the J.A.I.L. stuff cleared up the writer’s block.
- “Lilly Munster” sent an e-mail to let me know about a new South Dakota blog. I don’t think anyone should be too surprised by the name Coat Hangers At Dawn. It has already been added to the blogroll.
- The SF Site has posted its readers’ choices for the best SF and fantasy books of 2005. Two (Accelerando and Spin) of the three I’ve read deserve being on the list and I’m not going to quibble about the third (Looking for Jake). Interestingly, the top two readers’ choices didn’t make the editors’ choice list published earlier although Spin and Accelerando were on both. (Via Big Dumb Object).
- William Goldman, the co-author of Articles of Impeachment Against George W. Bush, has written a piece for Alternet on the impeachment movement. (Via Blog of a Bookslut).
- The 2006 National Magazine Award finalists have been announced. It’s worth a look. Where else are you going to find Atlantic Monthly, Martha Stewart Living, ESPN The Magazine, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker and Field & Stream having something in common? (Via kottke.org remaindered links).
- Duke University’s Center for the Study of the Public Domain has released a comic book exploring the impact of copyright law and the concept of public domain on a documentary filmmaker. (Via Neat New Stuff on the Net).
A mind, that wants to wander,
A?round a corner,
Is an un-wise mind
Now, is, be here now
