Linky Link Linkage for a Wednesday

Just a quick run-down of a few links for your lazy Wednesday afternoon…

– For Omnivoracious, I interviewed Eoin Colfer about his forthcoming Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy book, which included questions like “Were you aware there are easier ways to potentially receive a massive public beating than attempting to write a book as part of another author’s iconic series? Is it just that you’ve never taken the easy way out?”

– Also for Omnivoracious, I interviewed Nick Mamatas about his involvement with a new Viz imprint–good stuff!

– SF Signal interviewed me and other anthology editors about our various carpentry projects the whole process of editing anthologies.

– Our pirate anthology, Fast Ships, Black Sails (best original fantasy antho of 2008? I thought so, arrrr), got reviewed in a lot of different places as a result of Talk Like a Pirate Day. (Thanks, Matt and John.)

– Mr. Hines pulls a Dr. Seuss about the slushpile–hilarious. (Thanks, Chris.)

    Heh. Yes, although Ann’s more familiar with it since she reads that Weird Tales slush.

    Only thing is–if it’s stupid I only read a few pages, so the aggro level isn’t too high.

    Brilliant stuff.
