Link Roundup

  • Congratulations to Andrea Hairston on winning the 2011 Tiptree Award! There are some great works on the honor list and long list as well.
  • M. Christian and Marilyn J. Lewis have launched the Black Marks Literary Award for unpublished SF, which will give $500 and an offer of publication to the author of the winning manuscript. No word on how they’re defining “science fiction”.
  • Speaking of awards, I’m going to the Nebula Awards Weekend! Are you? And now that the Hugo nomination ballots are in, what was on yours?
  • The Other Change of Hobbit has received a loan that will let it stay open for a short time. If you want to help them stay open beyond that, stop by their fundraiser on March 18th.
  • Francesca Lia Block is facing foreclosure despite never having missed a payment on her mortgage. She’s asking her fans to sign a petition urging Bank of America to help her renegotiate the mortgage and keep her home.
  • Cabinet des Fées has released a chapbook of Cinderella jump rope rhymes, with 50% of profits going to charity.
  • London in 2014 is the only 2014 Worldcon bid to file by the deadline, so now would be a great time to become a supporter and lock in the lowest possible rate. Josh and I have been pre-supporters since Arisia 2011 and just upgraded; we’re really looking forward to it.

    Mysterious Galaxy has just opened a new store in Redondo Beach. More information can be found at It is a lovely store just up the block from Nordstroms and they need support also. If you are in the area please visit and welcome them to the neighborhood. The last time I was there it had shoppers.
