I've droned on and on here recently, so today I'll give everyone a break and just do some short bits.
I'm sure others have already posted about this, but it's only recently stuck in my mind that the SciFi Channel is doing a mini-series in December called Tin Man. Guess what that's about. I think I've read that the Tin Man is a former cop in this version. I will watch.
I'd never heard of the Mythopoeic Society before yesterday. It's a "non-profit international literary and educational organization for the study, discussion, and enjoyment of fantastic and mythic literature." It recently gave its award for children's literature to Catherine Fisher for Corbenic, one of my favorites from last year.
Heather Smith did a very interesting article for her Judging a Book by its Cover series at Bookslut on the new covers created by David Wiesner for The Chronicles of Narnia. (You've heard of Wiesner. He won the Caldecott Medal for Flotsam.) I enjoyed the article, and I don't even like The Chronicles of Narnia. Couldn't get past the first book.
Bookseller Chick has a discussion going on whether or not writers build readership with blogs.
Mitali Perkins is back from vacation. Two months in an RV. Woman, are you mad?
