Sunday morning trans-fat free genre link dump.

Good morning! (Yawn.) The Furry Machiavellian Persons woke me up an hour ago to demand their daily worship, so here I am, sleepy but sadly awake. Nobody should be forced to get up before 9:00 A.M. on a Sunday.

Anyway, let's do a proper link round-up, shall we? (Oh, and by request, I've begun adding Amazon links to the book titles. Y'all are so lazy!)
At the Scotland on Sunday, Mike Duffy jumps into the William Gibson pool with a review of Spook Country.

Spook Country is also covered at the Raleigh News & Observer, with an interview of William Gibson by Scott Timberg. Also at the Raleigh News & Observer, Gabriel Morgan writes a passionate defense of science fiction and fantasy writing. Really good piece!

At the Boston Globe, Peter Berbergal writes about people in our real world creating steampunk objets d'art (like a wind-up laptop made of wood and brass). Paul Di Fillippo is interviewed for the piece. And there's a fabulous photo gallery!

At the Baltimore Sun, Victoria Brownworth has a great review of Always by Nicola Griffith.

At the Philadelphia Inquirer, Sandy Bauers has a review of Three Bags Full by Leonie Swann (really, how can you go wrong with a detective novel about sheep???).

At the Houston Chronicle, Robert Cremins reviews Daniel Wallace's Mr. Sebastian and the Negro Magician.

At the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Chancey Mabe reviews Susan Hubbard's new vampire novel, The Society of S. Also, in last week's Sun-Sentinel, Mabe reviews the new fantasy The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel By Michael Scott.

At the Hartford Courant, Kit Reed looks at Camille DeAngelis's Mary Modern.

At the Toronto Star, Shaun Smith reviews Iain Banks's non-genre novel The Steep Approach to Garbadale.

Did you know that Phillip K. Dick's head has been missing for the past ten months? Me neither. Neither did I.

At the Detroit Free Press, Oline Cogdill reviews Michael Marshall (Smith)'s The Intruders.

At the Decatur Daily, William Allen reviews Matt Ruff's Bad Monkeys.

At the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Timothy McNulty interviews Stephenie Meyer, author of Eclipse.

Infinity Plus is celebrating its tenth anniversary; they've also posted fifteen new reviews!
