A Few Links

Everyone should listen to the Drabblecast. And I'm not saying that just because I'm featured in today's podcast. No, no -- if anything, I'm in today's podcast because Norm makes me want to write fiction that he'll read. My favorite podcast so far is "Gifting Bliss", and they reprinted Flash Fiction Online's "Apologies All Around" by Jeff Soesbe a while back. So yeah, it's awesome, and not just because of my little ditty.

SFRevu has another great issue up. Sam Tomaino reviews a couple of novels' worth of short fiction, including ours, as usual. (Thanks, Sam!) Mary Rose-Shaffer continues her series Exploring Genre with an excellent article on Dystopian Literature. There's a nice interview of Edmund R. Schubert as well. Also note that if you like SF/F, you could sign up to be a reviewer:
While we're happy to have a core of great reviewers for SFRevu, we get more books each month than we've got readers for and we'd like to have more. If you have a great desire to review SF/Fantasy for no pay but the glory of a byline, write to us at editor (at) sfrevu.com telling us a bit about yourself and send a 500 word (or so) review of a book that you have recently read. We should be able to get back to you within the month.

If you're a writer, or if you just love language, you might want to check out Bonnie Trenga's blog, The Sentence Sleuth. I plugged her column in Writer's Digest a while back as a Good Thing, and her blog continues those copyediting efforts with examples of bad-but-fixable writing. (But this is a blog, Bonnie -- I'm not guaranteeing that my posts are perfect!)
