I don't often make link posts, but there were a couple of links I saw this week that I wanted to mention so here they are.

First off, some very sad news. Kage Baker, author of The Company series, is very ill and would love to hear from her fans (email and snail mail addresses are provided for anyone who would like to send her a message of support).

Thanks to Adventures in Reading, I found this interview with Steven Brust. Since I'm currently working on a review of Brust's The Book of Jhereg, I figured I'd include it.

That reminded me of an interesting article (also on and posted by Jo Walton like the interview) that I read the other day and had meant to link to - SF Reading Protocols.

There is going to be a Book Blogger Convention in New York City on March 28, 2010. It's the Friday right after Book Expo America, which takes place during the same week. Both sound like a lot of fun.

Thank you Kristen.

I am very sorry to hear of Kage Baker's illness and hope that the treatment will produce a response.

So Kristen are you going to be at either of those events?

Kristen said...

Orannia - That is very sad news and I hope Kage Baker's treatment turns out well too.

Angiegirl - Although I am tempted, I doubt I'll be at either of those events. I would never go by myself, and I don't think I'd be able to convince anyone to go with me. They are kind of expensive anyway... but they do sound like an awful lot of fun. Are you planning to attend either of them?

Kristen, if you are even in NYC, be sure to look me up!

Anastasia - If I ever go to New York City, I will let you know!
