I’m busy at the moment – you’ll see why shortly – so I haven’t had time to blog. (One of these day I’ll do those other Hugo posts that I’ve been threatening to write). In the meantime, here’s some links to the brilliant thoughts of a bunch of people I respect. (All of whom should be nominated for BEST FAN WRITER!!!!!)
- An excellent review of Embassytown by Maureen Kincaid Speller;
- Most of you will have seen this one, but here’s Jim Hines posing like a man (on book covers I mean, because he’s already a man and doesn’t need to pose as himself);
- Of course, you’ll need to follow that post up with this one by Kirstyn on the “False Equivalence”;
- This is possibly the greatest Ditmar-related post ever written (and everyone knows how much I love Robin Penn’s Ditmar-wank posts). But here’s Ben Peek describing his eternal always-be-a-Ditmar-nominee-and-never-a-winner-struggle with Bill Wright;
- acrackedmoon has these sobering thoughts on men vaulting low bars when it comes to feminist discourse;
- Slightly old news here coz the Clarke Award winner has been announced, but here’s what David Hebblethwaite had to say about the nominees;
- Just do yourself a favour and add Kirstyn to your RSS Feed;
- And we end with someone who MUST be on the best fan writers Hugo ballot in 2013. Cat Valente on why she will never talk down to your children. This actually made me cry.
Enjoy. I did.
