Claude Lalumiere has started a weblog somewhat related to his fine Lost Pages webzine. I was surprised and flattered to see that Claude's first post was in response to The Mumpsimus Cultural Concurrence Index (itself a response to Terry Teachout's wildly popular idea). I scored a lot higher on Claude's index than he did on mine, which proves, I think, the superiority of his choices.

I just turned in a review to SF Site of Horses Blow Up Dog City & Other Stories by Richard Butner. It's a $5 limited edition chapbook of 5 stories, most of which are really really really really good. Published by the ever-wonderful Small Beer Press, this one is worth going out of your way to get. But hurry, because they only printed 400 of the things.
