"human is namuh spelled backwards"

Happy early birthday to astromachy, and best wishes for a wonderful year to come!

* There's a new Sword of Gryffindor: Hog's Head Pubcast online here. And speaking of podcasts, I've updated my list of favorite links here, including links to author/artist websites and podcasts.

* Fantasy & Science Fiction has posted free online copies of all of its stories that made the Nebula Awards Preliminary Ballot. Read them here.

* The Times has ranked its picks for "The 50 Greatest British Writers Since 1945" here. What do you think?

I decided I would make a list of My Top Ten Favorite British Writers since 1945.

Of those I chose, four were on the list by The Times:
J.R.R. Tolkien
George Orwell
J.K. Rowling
J.G. Ballard

Six, however, were not:
Mary Renault
Daphne du Maurier
Neil Gaiman
John Wyndham
Olaf Stapledon
Douglas Adams
