The lull continues, although as the books read list indicates, I am inhaling what borders on pure oxygen for me. I also have a stack of library books and books on the way from online sellers, including Better World Books, where a portion of the proceeds goes to literary projects worldwide. Still, I have insufficient drive to write reviews other than one forthcoming I promised a publisher. In the interim, here’s a few recent links of interest:
- CJR takes on the “obituary” Fox News did on Kurt Vonnegut. (Via.)
- Speaking of Vonnegut, read his inimitable “how to write with style,” which anyone who writes anything can use.
- Someone who shares my view of “current events.”
- Jackson Browne is one of the 20 artists and leaders interviewed by Rolling Stone for being among those “who have helped shape our time.”
- In case you hadn’t picked it up in the South Dakota blogroll, “commander other” has opened shop at the otherwhirled.
- The Library of America’s 900-page Philip K. Dick collection will be released next month. It does not appear to have any short stories but four novels originally published between 1962 and 1969, including the Hugo Award-winning The Man in the High Castle.
My schedule for today lists a six-hour self-accusatory depression.
