Review: Cthulhu's Reign ed. Darrell Schweitzer — Including a somewhat mixed reaction to my story, "Such Bright and Risen Madness in Our Names".

Five steampunk books you should readMainspring made the honorable mentions in this article.

Mama Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Write Novellas — An article on that most heterodox literary form, the novella. Link is to a .pdf file, FYI. (Via Greg Feeley.)

Some observations about e-books and illegal downloading — Paul Cornell speaks wisely and in great detail.

Scrivener's Error on e-books — Plus other divers alarums and entertainments.

Grace Jones singing "The Little Drummer Boy" to Peewee Herman — Because, you know, it's Newtonmass, when weird never goes out of style. (Via willyumtx.)

English Banned in Chinese Writing — The spirit of L'Académie française lives on.

Transits Near and Far — Analyzing exoplanetary atmospheres.
