Links to Stave Off….

It’s been a mix of a ‘blah’ kind of week and extremely hectic with lots of work to do. And I’m not finding near enough time to watch curling. Anyway, here are a few links.














                      • As the picture shows, I got mail from Patrick Rothfuss – how cool is that? I won prize in for donating to his Heifer International Worldbuilder’s charity fundraiser, which raised nearly $200,000. I got a signed copy of The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks (Book Depository, Powell’s Books, Indiebound, my review) – free signed books are always cool, but I wish it were a book I didn’t already have. Not that I’m complaining.




                      • The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch (Book Depository, Powell’s Books, Indiebound) won’t be published in the US until Spring 2011 at the earliest – hopefully there’s still a chance of 2010 release for the UK.




                      • I was mind-melded again at SFF Signal – this time about SFF TV shows that should be remade. I have no qualification for this at all, so I attempt humor.


                      • Mark Charan Newton has an idea, a crazy idea. It’s an opportunity for writers to plagiarize remix his fiction. Personally, I’m holding out for Pride of Newton and Zombies – clearly a best-seller.


                      • Author Sam Sykes interviews some bloggers (supposedly I’m in line – last I believe). An aside – what would you do if you found out that this guy lives in the same area as you?


                      • And last, since I am a geologist and landslides are cool…

                        Pride of Newton and Zombies is in development as a straight to DVD movie. I'm having a little trouble finding undead extras.

                        Move. Move quickly. Move anywhere else :-p

                        I love the interview with Carriger and Charlton... so so funny - I have read Soulless and it is a hoot.
                        Spellwright is on my list..:)

                        I think I'd rank SyFy a little higher up! :)

                        When in doubt, humor is a good way to go. I always enjoy your mind melding.
