Articles is having a ZOMBIE WEEK. Articles, stories, humorous zombie related wedding presents--go check it out!

Grasping for the Wind: The Monomyth and Me, in which I detail how unjust life is.

Whatever: Postmodernism in Fantasy, in which Brandon Sanderson is awesome.  Like always.

Manga Bookshelf: Shoujo Manga, naval grazing edition, in which Melinda more eloquently defends my right to enjoy shoujo despite my age.

Reading with Tequila: Are You A book Pusher?  I...definitely am.  But only when it comes to people I know.  I don't go to random strangers and say 'OMG READ THIS OR ELSE'

The Nerdist: Doctor Who for Newbies 'The First Doctor'.  Sadly no, David Tennant is not the first Doctor and that git Matt Smith will hopefully not be the last.

Mary Robinette Kowal: 10 Things a Debut Author Should Know About Signing, I especially agree with #1, b/c I can't tell you how many times I've mistaken a signature for fancy fontwork from the publisher

Lost in Books: Your Opinions please, she says please. Go help her out!

Babel Clash: Borders has Brandon Sanderson and Brent Weeks, two of my favorite epic fantasy writers being...epic.  Articles abound!  Meanwhile last week they had Mira Grant and Jesse Petersen discussing the Zombie Apocalypse!

Tumblr: LOLSlater, who remembers Saved By the Bell (the GOOD class?) Well, do you remember it this way?
