David Drake talks about why translating Latin helps him write better.

A discussion of Big Dumb Objects on SF Signal. Best of all, it’s the first I’ve heard about Greg Benford and Larry Niven collaborating!

An interview with Nick Matamas, the editor for Haikasoru, on SFFWorld.

A fascinating read here about SF in the Developing World, by a Ghanian writer.

He cites this article in the Independent, about changing trends in contemporary SF.

This is hardly news, but Redline should be hitting stores in October.

My initial impressions of io9 aren’t positive, but 10 Unintentionally Hilarious Lines was amusing.

Since I posted a Ken MacLeod review awhile ago, here‘s an interview with him. It’s from 2007 and a bit dated, but still interesting (particularly in light of the ongoing Tea Party mania).
