Lots of interesting things have been posted lately, so I have several new links to share with you today:
* Weird Tales posted a list of "The Weirdest Storytellers of the Past 85 Years."
* On the dystopian front, the site io9.com posted "Paradise Is A Lie: A History Of False Utopias."
* SFSignal invited science fiction authors to discuss this question: Is Science Fiction Antithetical to Religion? I think this is best paired with StarShipSofa's excellent podcast on Religious Themes in Science Fiction.
* Revolution Science Fiction posted a list of "Sci-Fi Love: Star-Crossed Couples." (My vote would go to John Fitzgerald Byers and Suzanne Modeski from The X-Files and The Lone Gunmen.)
* And last but not least, I offer an example of what happens when you mix The Goonies and The Pirates of the Caribbean:
The quote of the day...
"Government is an abstract noun meaning the art and process of governing and it should be an offence to write it with a capital G or so as to refer to people... The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity."
- J.R.R. Tolkien, in a letter to his son Christopher in 1943
