1) I have only very recently started listening to podcasts (yeah yeah, me am Philistine blah blah blah), and the latest one from SF Signal is both enjoyable and a bit thought-provoking to hear. I just wish these things came with a transcription. . . .
2) I also really liked the new one from Jonathan Strahan’s Notes from Coode Street, a long chat with Gary K. Wolfe that ranges all over the SF landscape.
3) This is one of the best (and chronologically extended) bibiliographies on fantastic criticism I’ve seen. I love that it starts with Kepler. . . .
4) Ancient astronomy. REALLY ancient.
5) We’re threatening the sky! Great, what’s next? Trashing up Mars?
6) An NYT article on the transformation of bookselling. Sobering, but whether it means The Death of the Book, or just the next stage in its life, is hard to say.
