I found a few links to distract us from the Osama onslaught that’s currently going on. Even good news can get tiresome on a 24-hour news cycle. I hope these links serve you well. In the coming weeks, if you find something interesting you think everyone should read, drop me a line via the contact form and let me know, or just post it below. Let’s get started:

1) Why Bother with Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror? Chris Modzelewski writes a thoughtful article on why speculative fiction should be taken seriously.

2) What’s the Craziest or Most Experimental Science Fiction or Fantasy Book You’ve Ever Read? Jeff Vandermeer wants know. Head over to his blog and participate.

3) SF Reviews.net celebrates 10th Anniversary with some serious giveaways: Giving away 10 books between now and July 1st. The link is to the first giveaway. Follow @SFReviewsnet on Twitter for updates also.

4) Zombie-Proof Home: It’s perfect!

5) Ogle the mother lode of Hobbit artwork from around the globe: I love these articles on Io9. This one features various Hobbit-related art, too cool.

6) In Memoriam: Joanna Russ (1937-2011): A tribute to the SFF pioneer.

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.

  1. Yes, the zombie-proof home works just fine, until those pesky undeads remember how to tunnel!
