Thursday night "I hate changing the litterbox" genre link dump.

Today? More of the same horrible no good very bad-dayness. We shall not speak of it. However, I did get to have dinner with Chardonnay Boy and his partner, Freelance Artboy, after work. Pizza and snark: the perfect combination after a hard day.

At the Austin Chronicle, Rick Klaw reviews The Electric Church by Jeff Somers. And no so much loving it, I'm afraid. Also, Terry Ornelas reviews Deep Inside: Extreme Erotic Fantasies by Polly Frost. (Because it's my blog and I can include reviews of smut of I want to!)

Barnes & Noble has launched a newly-revamped website and with it comes a very cool new online book magazine called the Barnes & Noble Review. In this very first issue, Paul Di Fillippo reviews Ben Peek's Black Sheep.

At Sci Fi Weekly, John Clute reviews Robert Charles Wilson's Axis; Paul Di Fillippo reviews Ray Bradbury's Now and Forever; and Doug Fratz reviews Fleet of Worlds by Larry Niven and Edward M. Lerner.

Comic Mix has a pretty new website: go look!

At the Amazon Book Blog, Jeff VanderMeer interviews Karen Joy Fowler and Steph Swainston.

Graeme's Fantasy Book Review looks at MAD About Star Wars: 30 Years of Classic Parodies, written by Jonathan Bresman with a foreword by George Lucas. (I flipped through this the other day and have to say: it really is funny as hell!)

The October issue of SF Revu has been posted, with reviews of (among others): The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks, The Sons of Heaven by Kage Baker, End of the World Blues by Jon Courtenay Grimwood, The Taste of Night: The Second Sign of the Zodiac by Vicki Pettersson and much more.

Lots of things going on over at OF Blog of the Fallen: a review of Jeff Ford's The Empire of Ice Cream, as well as American Morons by Glen Hirshberg. There's also a review of Lucius Shepard's Softspoken, a review of Ray Bradbury's The Homecoming, and a joint review of Brian Ruckley's Winterbirth and Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn novels.
