On Measuring The Specific Gravity of Grief — GeekDad reviews my new single-title novella at Wired.com. A thoughtful, interesting review. If you're interested, you can buy the book here from Fairwood Press.

Zombies, Steampunk, or Historical Fantasy - Help Me Pick the Next Novel to Read — This may be the funniest pre-review of one of my books I've ever received. Pinion is the conclusion of a trilogy that sounds fantastic to me. But I don't want to read the first two books; their existence offends me. Huh?

Ozymandias — Art guru James Gurney with a very cool post about one of his Dinotopia paintings.

Complex Reactions on TitanCentauri Dreams on the increasingly real possibilities of life on Titan.

A Softer World on honesty, empathy and tact — Ah, the marvels of Internet discourse.

SMBC explains the Prisoner's Dilemma

Non Sequitur is hilariously political

It Will Happen AgainBush admits torturing KSM and says he'd do it again. Gee, what a shock.

Hatch's Partisan Military Service Bill — This just in: Republican senator caught out in mendacious hypocrisy. But I repeat myself. (Source is Rachel Maddow, in case you think she's a liberal hack not worth watching. A well-sourced liberal hack, admittedly.)

?otD: Does the existence of any particular book offend you?

Writing time yesterday: n/a (chemo exhaustion)
Body movement: Short suburban walk later (on the pump)
Hours slept: 8.5 (badly interrupted)
This morning's weigh-in: n/a (forgot)
Yesterday's chemo stress index: 9/10 (on the pump)
Currently (re)reading: The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett

No. But I used to be a librarian. It's against the rules for me to be offended by a book [g].
