Sunday morning genre link dump. With Corn Chex.

Caffeine hasn't hit the bloodstream yet. Here be some linkage:
At the Baltimore Sun, Digby Diehl reviews Ray Bradbury's Now and Forever.

At the Boston Globe, Amanda Heller reviews The Cleft, by Doris Lessing.

At the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Jackie Loohauis-Bennett also reviews The Cleft.

At the Los Angeles Times Online, Ed Parks discusses manga genius Osamu Tezuka and reviews the Robert Silverberg collection To the Dark Star 1962-1969.

At the New York Times, Baz Dreisinger reviews Samuel L. Delaney's Dark Reflections, and Dawn Drzali reviews Helen Slavin's The Extra Large Medium.

At the Sun-Sentinel, Chauncey Mabe reviews Spook Country by William Gibson. And, in an earlier review that I missed, Chancey takes on The Society of S by Susan Hubbard.

At the Twin Cities Daily Planet, Stephani Maari Booker profiles Diversicon, an annual SF/F convention focusing on aspects of diversity in SF literature, films and television shows, including ethnicity, gender and sexuality.

At the Houston Chronicle, Fritz Lanham interviews Michael Chabon.

At the Austin Chronicle, Rick Klaw reviews The Best of Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet, edited by Kelly Link and Gavin Grant.

At the Chicago Tribune, Patrick Reardon talks about Sci-Fi Baby Names by Robert Schnakenberg. Now you too can name your poor child after Doctor Who or Star Trek characters. (Price of book does not include cost of long-term therapy for child.)
