First of all, I’m interviewed by Debra L. Martin and David W. Small at Two Ends of the Pen today.
Otherwise, I’ve been very busy these past few days, so there hasn’t been a whole lot of blogging going on here. However, I’ve got a few links for you:
It’s an improvement over last year’s review, but the New York Times still fails to grasp the appeal of A Game of Thrones. Or rather, the TV critics of the New York Times have problems grasping why anybody would want to watch anything other than The Sopranos, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Wire or whatever this year’s flavour of quality television is, since I have never seen them give a good review to any fantasy or SF show.
Amy Ratcliffe responds to the New York Times review at iO9 and wonders whether the New York Times critic, one Neil Genzlinger, has ever read the books at all or even knows that there are books.
Finally, the picture book Darth Vader and Son looks like the cutest thing ever. Though I wish Leia would have gotten a bit of Darth Vaderly love as well.
