’round the web link-soup

Posted on: October 19, 2011

While I’m working on my review of Jasper Kent’s The Third Section (it was incredible, by the way), here are some fun ’round the web links for you to enjoy.

Neal Stephenson’s article on the World Policy Institute Innovation Starvation

Cory Doctorow announces sequel to Little Brother.

Cool interview with China Mieville on a cool site you should already have bookmarked.

name the Very Large Array!

Two great resources if you’re planning on joining the January Vintage SF not-a-challenge and have no idea where to start:
SF Mash-ups vs SF retellings on Kirkus. I’m interested in this “futuristic Count of Monte Cristo”.

Mary Shelley’s SF geek friends (List of SF and Utopias written by women)

New York ComiCon fun:
Cosplay fun
which came first, the chicken or the Boba Fett?
Librarians promoting reading at NYCC

that aughta keep ya busy for a while.

I’m dubious of the sequel to LITTLE BROTHER since it seemed to me as if the loose ends were tied up pretty well and a sequel might be overkill.

That said, I loved LITTLE BROTHER and so if the second book could capture the magic of the first and still tell me an interesting new story without rehashing the original, then I’ll be pleased.


Maybe the sequel is a different group of characters? no other details have been released yet . . . but it’s Doctorow. he wouldn’t let me down!


I need to read Little Brother so I can maybe read the sequel ages after it is published… 🙂


Little Brother is really, really good.

some of the books reviewed here were free ARCs supplied by publishers/authors/other groups. Some of the books here I got from the library. the rest I *gasp!* actually paid for. I'll do my best to let you know what's what.
