I’m still not completely caught up from the weekend, so I’m mostly just pointing you to other blogs.
Dear Author is having a discussion about fanfic. I used to write it (and have a few stories that if I had time, would love to finish). Was picked up by my editor because of it. Do you hate it or love it? Think it shouldn’t exist, or don’t care either way?
Bam has reviewed PREACHER, one of my favorite graphic novels. Everything she says, I can only second wholeheartedly.
bnjammin has a fantastic link and quotes from Alan Moore regarding porn, and the demonization of sex in Western culture.
PBW, Marjorie Liu and Dear Author have reported that Peter Watts has put his book, BLINDSIGHT, up on his site for free (for unfortunate reasons, namely a lack of distribution (I know when I went into my local BN looking for it after my “I Want!” post, I couldn’t find it)) hoping to generate sales. Try it out, and if you like it, please buy it. I just did through Amazon.
Also, I think — but I’m not sure — that DEMON ANGEL is available at Powell’s and BN.com. But I’m not linking those, because I don’t know if early sales are bad or not. I’ve heard yes, and I’ve heard no.
