Sunday evening genre link dump. With papercuts.

I have been at the office all day today (yes, yes, on a Sunday), stuffing shiny new books into stiff yellow cardboard envelopes. As a result, my fingertips are shredded and bloody and the envelopes may be covered by hazardous waste. Alas!

Onward to the linkage:
At the San Francisco Chronicle, Michael Berry reviews Thursday Next: First Among Sequels by Jasper Fforde, Chris Barzak's One for Sorrow, and Ray Bradbury's Now and Forever.

At SF Signal, John de Nardo takes a second look at Harlan Ellison's classic short story, "Repent, Harlequin!" Said the Tick-Tock Man. (Ah, if only dropping jellybeans all over the Bush administration had the same effect!)

At SciFi Wire, John Joseph Adams profiles Jeff and Ann VanderMeer, Ben Bova, and Baltimore authors Chris Golden and Mike Mignola.

Somehow I missed this great interview with Naomi Novik over at Sci Fi Weekly. Good stuff!

Also at Sci Fi Weekly, Cynthia Ward reviews Brian Ruckley's Winterbirth.

The Gravel Pit also reviews Winterbirth.

Many good things at Fantasybookspot: Reviews of Caressed by Ice by Nalini Singh, Winterbirth by Brian Ruckley, As Fate Decrees by Denyse Bridger, Antarctica by Kim Stanley Robinson, and many more.

At SFF World, new reviews of Halting State by Charlie Stross and Stealing Light by Gary Gibson.

At Strange Horizons, also a load of great stuff: R.J. Burgess reviews The Innocent Mage by Karen Miller; Michael Levy reviews Cowboy Angels by Paul MacAuley; Abigail Nussbaum reviews Anna Kavan's Ice and Guilty; and Donna Royston reviews Lois McMaster Bujold's The Sharing Knife: Legacy.

At Katie's Reading, new reviews of The Darkangel by Meredith Ann Pierce and Agents of Light and Darkness by Simon R. Green.

OF Blog of the Fallen reviews Catherynne M. Valente's 2005 novel Yume no Hon: The Book of Dreams and Zoran Živković's Steps Through the Mist.
