The Tuesday night "Will San Francisco please take its weather home now?" genre link dump.

Seriously, it's like San Francisco winter weather outside today; cold, damp and drizzly gray. Feh. I understand that there are hurricanes and tempests and monsoons and waterspouts and wind tunnels and black holes and whirlygigs and global warming thingies all over the world. But here, in NYC, it is still SUMMER! Dammit! SUMMER! (You listening, Horace? Just cut this shit out right now.)

Tirade over. Onward with the linkypoo:
Because the blogosphere can't have enough William Gibson, here is yet another interview with the author of Spook Country, this time at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

From Associated Press: One in four American adults read no books last year. This is an interesting survey; go check out the rest of the story.

At Blogcritics, Richard Marcus reviews Patricia McKillip's Something Rich and Strange.

Fantasy Book Critic reviews The Book of Joby by Mark J. Ferrari.

The Pearls are Cooling has an interview with Karin Lowachee, and reviews of two of her earlier books, Cagebird and Burndive.

OF Blog has a review of Best American Fantasy (the VanderMeer/Cheney one, not that other one - these yearly anthologies are SO confusing).

At Sci Fi Wire, John Joseph Adams (whom La Gringa will be lunching with tomorrow) has an interview with Brian Herbert, who says that this time the Dune cycle really is finished. (At least, ya know, until someone defrosts another copy of Duncan Idaho.)

Rick Kleffel talks about Margo Lanagan's Red Spikes as well as Gavin & Kelly's The Best of Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet. He's also got an interview with NPR's Alan Cheuse.

The Gravel Pit reviews Charlie Huston's Already Dead. (La Gringa loved loved loved loved this book, and its sequel, No Dominion.)

Finally, at Bookgasm, Ryun Ferguson looks at Warren Ellis's Crooked Little Vein.

Lawrence loved loved loved loved that book as well, as you can read in my review. Thanks for the heads up for the other things going on in the blogosphere.
