Yesterday, when I needed cheering, the mailman brought me a copy of Teresa Nielsen Hayden’s Making Conversation. Like its predecessor, Making Book, it is two intertwined essay collections, one on publishing and the other on everything else, including the dubiousness of saints, IBM’s balls, pygmy mammoths, chaos is not your friend, trolls, and much else. Like its predecessor, it is delightful.

* New gigantic Star Trek Encyclopedia. [livejournal.com profile] nellorat and I copy-edited an earlier version, so I like to think this one still has our cooties on it.

* Nifty infographic tallies every spell used in the Harry Potter series

Thanx to Tor.com.

I’m not going to argue with Bob Dylan getting the Nobel, though he was my second choice, after Ursula Le Guin. I hope she & Philip Roth & Elena Ferrante enjoy the Losers Party.

ETA: And John Crowley discusses one of my faves.

A site called Gadgets.ndtv, which no one should click on because it makes you read spam & maybe malware from the advertisers, did a post on Gollancz’s SF Masterworks series, which really is a good thing. Here are lists and other info from Wikipedia and SF Site.
