[links] Link salad has the frost heaves

I’m still taking interview questions from readers: [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ] — Thanks to those who have posted already. Will probably answer them tomorrow or over the weekend and post next Monday. This is fun.

A reader reacts to Green — Definitely not with the liking of the book. My favorite bit: Green is a bog-standard fantasy with pretensions to be more. I have achieved mediocrity!

A reader reacts to my collection Dogs In the Moonlight — Not so much with the liking of the book.

George Lucas Destroyed Modernity — Conservative commentator Daniel Larison compares Star Trek and Star Wars in discussing a rather odd thesis advanced by Michael Lind. Science fiction meets politics.

    A few times while I was growing up on the west side of Minneapolis, it got down below -40F. All things considered I like Minnesota well enough, but there’s a reason I don’t live there anymore.
