"that flighty temptress"

* Julie Phillips' biography of a science fiction legend, James Tiptree, Jr.: The Double Life of Alice B. Sheldon, has won the National Book Critics Circle Award for best biography of 2006.

* From Marvel Comics land: R.I.P., Captain America?

* Harold Bloom has gone off again on Harry Potter. (This is not the first time: see here and here, for example.) In the process, he asserted, "I cannot think of a major work I have not ingested." Somehow, I get the suspicion that our definitions of "major work" would differ.

* And last but not least, re: my own recent news, here are couple of press releases about my husband, making it official:
* Yesterday's press release (LRC)
* Last week's press release (BU)


"...let us step into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure."
Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
