Thanks to everyone who's participated in my new Doctor Who poll. It's still open, if anyone else would like to take part!

I'm being interviewed this afternoon by WUTC 88.1 FM, Chattanooga's NPR station, for a news story regarding the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows film. Good heavens, it's hard to believe this is the last in the series... My tissues are packed and ready.

Harry potter and the deathly hallows part 2


And now, for news...

* My most recent "Looking Back on Genre History" segment, which discusses H.P. Lovecraft's non-fiction essays "Supernatural Horror in Literature," "Some Notes on Interplanetary Fiction," and "Notes on Writing Weird Fiction," is up today at StarShipSofa. This new show also includes the second of my three-part reading of Rachel Swirsky's Nebula Award-winning and Hugo Award-nominated novella The Lady Who Plucked Red Flowers Beneath The Queen’s Window. All of this is available here, on the latest episode of the podcast.

* Today's TeeFury shirt is from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog!

* I'm intrigued by the Con of Wrath documentary project.

* Librivox.org has some new unabridged audiobooks available for free download. Several are of interest to genre readers:
The Italian by Ann Radcliffe
The Witch of Salem by John R. Musick
The Time Machine by H.G. Wells
Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley


"Tell me one thing," said Harry. "Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?"

Dumbledore beamed at him, and his voice sounded loud and strong in Harry's ears even though the bright mist was descending again, obscuring his figure.

"Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?"

- J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Okay, I'm having a dilemma. I'm old enough to be Harry Potter's mother, but that photo is wicked hot!!

After all, what happens inside our head is what's important to us.

Do I dare admit to never having seen one episode of Doctor Who?

Isn't that the truth!

No Doctor Who? Ever ever? \o/

Can't wait to feed my Pod that new "Looking Back on Genre History" segment! Also -- just heard part 1 of that Swirsky novella, & I think it's one of your best narrations yet.
