The Week in Review
- Mark, of Mark Does Stuff, reads John Scalzi’s story “Shadow War of the Night Dragons.” He has no idea what he’s in for, and the result is hilarious for all of us.
- The Suicide Girls have an excerpt up from Cory Doctorow and Charles Stross’ upcoming book The Rapture of the Nerds.
- The blog She-Wolf Reads has an interview with artist Chris McGrath, who does the covers for the Dresden Files and D. B. Jackson’s upcoming novel Thieftaker.
- Mary Robinette Kowal is a reluctant runner (and so am I). But, she’s found an excellent way to motive herself: Zombies, Run!
- An interesting essay on colonialism from critic and genre fiction author Nisi Shawl.
- Tor.com’s Lee Falin continues his look at the science behind allomancy in Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn trilogy. This time, he examines pewter.
