Friday Links

Wow – this is Post #50 already! Time flies when you’re having fun, eh? Any suggestions for Post #100?

Anyway, I’ve got some great stuff for you today, so let’s get started.

First, some advice from the spouse of a writer, on how to Be There for your sweetie when he/she goes through the “Revision Apocalypse.” With fun sketches!

We love lists, right? Here’s a list of the top ten short stories of all time, according to…I don’t know, that blog I guess. I was intrigued to see that I recognized half the authors on the list but had never heard of, much less read, any of the stories. I think that’s an indication of how biased our modern reading culture has become toward novels.

With Big Literary People like Philip Roth proclaiming the death of the novel, I was pleased to find this neat (and accurate) summary of the issue: IsTheBookDead.com

And finally, a hilarious collection of weird stuff customers say in book stores. If you like those, there’s a Part 2 as well. Apparently she’s going to make this a regular feature on her blog.

That’s it, no tengo más. Have a great weekend, everybody!
