Thursday night long-overdue genre link dump.

Sorry for the lack of actual content this week. Link-gathering requires a modicum of brain power, and brain power is something that I simply haven't had at the end of any day this past week. I've been exhausted pretty much every day, getting home very late from work, going in ridiculously early. I feel like I've been existing in a virtual fog since Sunday.

Anyway, let's see what we can do about getting this link-dump back on track, shall we?
At the Washington Post Book World, Adrienne Martini reviews Territory by Emma Bull, Hurricane Moon by Alexis Glynn Latner, The Accidental Time Machine by Joe Haldeman, and 9Tail Fox by Jon Courtenay Grimwood.

At the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Cecelia Goodnow profiles Scott Westerfeld.

The Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star reviews Westerfeld's Extras.

At the Madison Capital Times, Michael Cunningham talks about genre fiction and his book Specimen Days. (And I'm pretty sure he insulted all of us but I'm so tired right now, I just can't tell.)

At the Los Angeles Times, M.G. Lord calls Doris Lessing's Nobel Prize a "victory for science fiction".

At the Boston Globe, Vanessa E. Jones writes about the growing acceptance of fan fiction.

At USA Today, Paul Wiseman talks about the steady decline of manga sales in Japan.

At the Austin Chronicle, Rick Klaw reviews Best American Fantasy, edited by Ann & Jeff VanderMeer, and Matt Cheney.

There's a new issue of SF Site posted: Jayme Lynn Blaschke reviews China Mieville's Un Lun Dun; Sherwood Smith reviews Empire of Ivory by Naomi Novik; Paul Kincaid reviews The Wild Girls by Pat Murphy; Rich Horton reviews Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch; Dave Truesdale reviews The Dog Said Bow-Wow by Michael Swanwick; Neal Walsh's Overlooked or Over-hyped? looks at His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman and The Fall of Ile-Rien by Martha Wells; and much more.

At C.H.U.D., Cameron Hughes has an interview with Electric Church author Jeff Somers.

Jeff VanderMeer says that You! Must! Buy! Michael Cisco's The Traitor. (Buy! Buy! Buy!)

And then, because he never sleeps, Jeff is back at the Amazon Book Blog, profiling Michael Bishop and talking up Ben Peek's Black Sheep.

Book Festish reviews The Accidental Time Machine by Joe Haldeman, Lord of the Fading Lands by C.L. Wilson, and Sorceress by Lisa Jackson.

Bookgasm reviews Winterbirth by Brian Ruckley.

Fantasy Book Critic has a great interview with Bob "R.A." Salvatore.
