This week: more Karen Joy Fowler. And? More!

Mon 6 Dec 2010 - Filed under: Not a Journal. | 1 Comment | Posted by: Gavin

Slepyng Hound to WakeI have a sad (but not tragic) post to write that I should just get done. Who wants to be sad though? Oh well.

In the meantime, we have all kinds of loveliness coming in from those authorly authors:

Karen Joy Fowler tells us what’s on her Christmas list and how she adds value to beach front properties.

That popular translator, Edward Gauvin, is back starting off with a quote from Georges-Olivier Châteaureynaud who he says

urges students in his writing workshops to “abandon the haunted castle and consider the haunted bus stop.”

Karen Lord says:

Speculative fiction is the geek paradise–the place to be as a reader if non-fiction thrills you as much as fiction, if you need but the slightest excuse to research dead languages, distant cultures, far-off planets, whispers of future technology, and legends ancient and urban.

Vincent McCaffrey confesses

I was not a very good paperboy. I had a strong arm, but my fold was not always up to the rigors of the aerial journey.

And here’s where you can get a freebie advance copy of the second Hound novel.

More as the week goes on.

Happy St. Nicholas’s Day!

    if you need but the slightest excuse to research dead languages, distant cultures, far-off planets, whispers of future technology, and legends ancient and urban.

    Ha! It’s like you’re secretly peering into my past-times.
