A very quick round-up of things going on in places real & virtual:
If you've ever wanted to know what "mess" looks like... I got to take part in Savidge Reads' "Other People's Bookcases" series, which involves answering (at ridiculous length) stories about book-hoarding and providing some slightly silly pictures of our crazy home. One of our cats also makes a guest appearance, and I give some really 'insightful' tips about fire safety for book collectors... This was a lot of fun.
Those are books in captivity. Don't they look glum?
I suppose those are the books 'here'. The 'there' relates to a new series on Tor.com - I'm in a rotation with Justin Landon and Stefan Raets to do a series of columns called "Under the Radar".
The goal is to highlight recent-ish new-ish releases that haven't received the attention that (we each think) they deserve. Justin's started us off with a doozy - Zachary Jernigan's No Return. It is a nifty, positive project and I'm glad to be part of it.
Meanwhile, in case I haven't mentioned it, like, eight billion times, there are a couple of new Jurassic books out at the end of the month. What? You want more details? Well, if you insist...
