* I can't say enough good things about The Apex Book of World SF. If you haven't checked it out, I highly recommend doing so. The related World SF News Blog has now been syndicated for LJ as world_sf.
* This is a scream: "Stereotyping People by Their Favorite Author." (Thanks to euclase.) Read and laugh.
* Heartfelt thanks to dodger_winslow for the shout-out here and Happy Catholic for the shout-out here. I greatly appreciate it. And thanks also to all of you who have sent me holiday cards. I've been thoroughly enjoying getting lovely mail from my friends from all over the world!

Ms. Granger: “What makes you think you don’t?”
