Some fun links for you today. If you’ve got something interesting for us, please post it as a comment below.

1) HBO’s Game of Thrones Interactive Map: Are you watching Game of Thrones on HBO? Here’s a cool new “Extended” interactive map from HBO. Thanks to Adam Whitehead at The Wertzone for this. Read Adam’s comments about the map.

2) How to Sell Yourself: In this interview, Amanda Hocking talks about self-publishing and how she became a successful self-published author who was eventually picked up by St. Martin’s Press. Media industry experts respond to the Hocking interview.

3) Apocalypse Soon: Slate Magazine features a slide show of “The best dystopian campaign spots of the last 50 years.”

4) The Clarke Award Shortlist… in case you’ve been living in a cave: This is a little bit old by now since it aired just after our last WWW post and has already been posted everywhere since, but just in case you didn’t know, Christopher Priest (The Prestige) is a bit ticked off about this year’s Arthur C. Clarke Award shortlist.

5) A Chat with Saladin AhmedBryan Thomas Schmidt interviews author Saladin Ahmed (Throne of the Crescent Moon) at Grasping for the Wind. In case you were wondering, his Arabic “sucks.”

JUSTIN BLAZIER retired from FanLit in September 2012 after entertaining us for 3 years. Like many fantasy enthusiasts, Justin cut his teeth on Tolkien. Due to lack of space, his small public library would often give him their donated SFF books. Justin lives in a small home near the river with his wife, their baby daughter, and Norman, a mildly smelly dog. He doesn't have much time for reviewing anymore, but he still shows up here occasionally to let us know how he feels about stuff.
