jimhines with 20 Neil Gaiman facts — Hahahahahahah.

Reasons manuscripts get rejected... — "The writer seems like a difficult person to work with" Huh. What do you think of that?

Why I Wrote Imaginative RealismArt writing guru James Gurney on painting things which don't exist. Some interesting thoughts for us fictioneers.

Edmond Charles Genet's "Aeronaut"...a "Fish-shaped, horse-powered, paddle-wheel dirigible". Say what? Ca. 1825, when "horsepower" really meant something.

Warmest Arctic temperatures for 2,000 years, says new study — More of that darn liberal bias in the real world. Good thing we have the GOP to keep us on the straight and narrow, come hell or high water.

Oh! You mean I'm not supposed to take this one with deathly seriousness? Don't laugh, but I am so ridiculously obedient to editors that I was assuming this was another set of absolute rules that have to be followed, even though some of it was a bit odd (I did wonder if said editor would mark down non-US, but correct, spelling, in a blog, frinstance. Because, you know alright is alright in UK English).

Most employers are not aware that Google, Facebook, and Twitter meet the legal definitions of credit-reporting agencies. Applicants are likely unaware that they have the same FCRA right that they do for criminal background checks. Googling for a potential application without written permission is a violation of Federal Law.
