25 Years of Spectra: Year 20 = Hammered by Elizabeth Bear (and I cannot believe it’s only been five years since that was published….)
Tor.Com has a special Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy program for the Month of July, featuring many notables blogging and talking (via Laura Anne Gilman AKA suricattus, who will also be participating)
Genevieve Valentine’s review of Eclipse (not safe for non-snark). “Mike speaks for all of us.” I’d probably offer her representation based on this blog entry.
In case you missed it in yesterday’s post: Sharon Lee and Steve Miller are having a contest to bring in new readers of their Liaden series. Free non-DRM, open-platform e-books are on offer….
Mike Shevdon continues his posts on Tools for Writing with this one on FreeMind
Jay Lake makes me hungry for momos (where can I get yak meat for filling?) and talks about fried olives based on a dream he had. Hopefully more food-blogging to come and maybe even a someday cheese post (love his cheese posts). He also celebrated Jaycon X this past weekend — many, many returns!
Bonus-non-client-link: Jeff Vandermeer on the future of publishing. In which I expect I will finally have to give up being a literary agent to open a BBQ joint. With an open-mic night for poetry.
There is a Tibetan restaurant in St. Louis called the Everest Cafe that serves DELICIOUS momos. Oh, I miss them so much! I haven’t been back to Missouri in a long time. Now you have me pining for Tibetan food.
Lhasa Cafe in Northampton, MA is where I last had them I think. Their yak momo is nom, nom, nom.
Northampton isn’t THAT far from Nashua. I need to make up an excuse to drive to Connecticut. 🙂 Hell, maybe I just need an excuse to drive to Northampton.
Many people would consider superior BBQ to be worth the switch . . .
But then comes the timeless debate of what kind of barbecue: Memphis? St. Louis? Kansas City? Texas?
Me personally, I prefer St. Louis barbecue, but I like spicy food (though I prefer Texas Ribs to St. Louis ribs). I think Kansas City barbecue is more a matter of showmanship than actual taste, Gates Barbecue being the classic example. Ordering at those restaurants is worthy of a short story, at least.
I guess I keep you busy, huh?
In other news, ugh. Cold cereal for lunch….
If we’re ever in the same place with a free afternoon and a kitchen, I can help you right out with that momo thing…
Thanks for that review of Eclipse – so much LOL!
The sparkly nasty….that’s funny.
I use FreeMind all the time, I love it.
