Friday Link-o-Rama

Scott McCloud's Story Machine is a wonderful tool if you're stuck on a writing project. Especially if you're stuck in that "what am I going to write about" mode.

Matt Cheney on extensive exposition. Or as SF people often call it, Infodump.

A new anthology celebrating the work of Robert E. Howard is looking pretty cool. Great line-up for SF and Fantasy fans.

The NYT on authors doing their own Audio Books.

TVV on the history of women illustrating for comics.

I'm not entirely sure what to make of Library Thing. Sharing what's on your bookshelf sounds interesting on the surface, but it seems like yet another way to communicate with people about reading and writing without actually doing it. And I do enough of that already.

New issue of Beltway, the DC-based online poetry journal, is up. The focus this time is on places within the DC region and has work by peeps (both local and non) like Elizabeth Bishop, Gregg Shapiro, Richard Peabody, and Sterling A. Brown. It's a fun tour of the region, whether you've been here or not.

Feminist SF-the Blog! writes on issues of race and gender in the multiverse of Joss Whedon.

I might have use for the Story Machine as a writing tool, if only I could figure it out. Hahaha! You've got some cool sites listed here; think I'll go check out the City Lit Project. Thanks!
