Green Man Review rather liked Paper Cities [ Powell's | Amazon ] — They especially liked "Promises: A Tale of the City Imperishable". The story is in the Flowers continuity, concerning the life of Biggest Sister, leader of the Tribade at the time of Trial of Flowers.
kenscholes on the agonies and wonders of the writing process — Definitely worth a look.
Agent Joshua Bilmes on the coming changes in Borders bookstores — "You can either see this as the complete dumbing down of the bookstore, or as salvation as somebody attempts to think out of the box and do something new in a bookstore for the first time in decades." (Thanks to devonmonk.)
Some interesting comments in last night's post on dialog, btw.
Cheese fear — Engrish.com takes on cheese. (And yes, I owe a cheese blog from Rainforest. Busy here.)
The state of Tennessee shows some real class and economic foresight in dealing with illegal immigrants — This one's a doozie.
