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.
