Getting the Links Out
Go away! To:
- "Who Put the Bomp?" by Nick Mamatas and Eliani Torres
- Jeff VanderMeer on "Politics in Fantasy". (Ben Peek already has a response.)
- Poet and translator Pierre Joris has a blog. Recently of interest: New translations of prose fragments by Paul Celan.
- I've been meaning to note for a while that the Carl Brandon Society ("dedicated to addressing the representation of people of color in the fantastical genres such as science fiction, fantasy and horror") has a blog. One of these days I will actually update the sidebar. I really will.
- Did you check out Ander Monson week at the LitBlog Co-op? I liked his Other Electricities a lot, and some of the posts are interesting, perhaps even if you haven't read the book. Monson has a website for Other Electricities if you're curious about the book. This week is all about All This Heavenly Glory by Elizabeth Crane. Some people liked it a lot.
- Mozart got old recently. New Yorker music critic Alex Ross suggests we should celebrate Mozart by ignoring Mozart. (Frankly, I already do. I'm not a big Mozart fan for some reason. But I love Ross's suggestion that we should listen to contemporary composers, and I particularly recommend Arvo Part's Tabula Rasa to anyone who's not familiar with it -- a gorgeous and deeply affecting piece of music.)
- Waggish on J.M. Coetzee's Slow Man
- The Implications of Frozen Brains on the Afterlife
