WWWebsday: April 3, 2013

Whaaaat? It’s April already?

One more reason why libraries are awesome.

Rithmatist Sweepstakes. So looking forward to this book.

You can vote for the manliest of man covers over at Baen. Though one of the choices appears to be a feline. I think I’m opting for the Space BeeGee, myself.

An interview with Lady Trent, famed dragon naturalist.

Flying in Place is on sale as an e-book for $2.99. Our Terry says, “I have to give this one a signal boost. It’s an excellent book that I read when it first came out a couple of decades ago, and it haunts me to this day. Buy it, read it.”

First entry in my “Please take away their Photoshop” series.

New trailers: Iron Man 3, The Wolverine, and World War Z. The Mortal Instruments.

  1. Ruth; your inaugural “Please take away their Photoshops” could not be more accurate. What is he wearing? He looks like a male belly-dance instructor who lost the bet and had to get the tattoo.

    I’m looking forward to The Rithmatist too.

    On the poll – wow. Those are some, um, striking covers. Wow. Some of them I couldn’t even figure out.

      Also on the new Photoshop series – AGREED. I’m sure you’ll find ample fodder.

  3. I’m going to vote for #23, just to be contrary.

    The Photoshop cover needs a new name….

    In the poll, what book is # 3 from? I think it’s the only cover I didn’t recognize.

    Can’t wait for the Rithmatist either. And I’m intrigued by Lady Trent. That’s on my to read list as well.
