Some wild stuff this week. First, John Scalzi’s response to the NPR Top 100.
Speaking of lists, Nonstop Press is releasing Science Fiction: The 101 Best Novels 1985-2010. I wonder how this compares to NPR.
A podcast interview with David Drake that I listened to in preparation for this Friday’s post. Drake just gets more interesting the more I hear about him and this is full of great stuff.
While in my review, I claimed laziness and didn’t look into Nancy Kress and the origins of Probability, I did later. This interview discusses it a bit and introduces The Flowers of Aulit Prison as a source. I was right – she cooked up World first and everything else second.
Anyone curious what a Gundam looks like, this guy has an impressive page dedicated to modeling them.
Finally, while I was searching for that Jo Walton link in the Ghost in the Shellpost, I came across this. I don’t know what world these people are from, but the hackers have rippling chests and no shirts. Jose still hasn’t recovered from seeing this.
