Thursday night "Why exactly did I have that third cup of coffee today?" genre link dump. With the jitters.

Left work at a more normal hour today. Well, 6:30-ish. Which is better than 8:00-ish. But Tall Chick and I downed far too much coffee in the afternoon, so we both became jumpy and jittery, which is not conducive to productivity.

Linkage:
Doris Lessing wins the Nobel Prize; stand back as the literati stumble gracelessly over themselves in their attempts to prove that Lessing never wrote genre fiction.

At the Amazon Book Blog, Tom Nissley writes about Lessing's work and outlines her skiffy stuff.

At the Mumpsimus, Dustin Kurtz has a guest review of M. John Harrison's Nova Swing.

Bookgasm reviews Ray Bradburys's Now and Forever and Best American Comics 2007, edited by Chris Ware.

Book Fetish really really hates Devour by Melina Morel. (Thus living up to their motto, "gagging on bad prose so you don't have to".)

At Blogcritics, Marty Dodge reviews Moon Age Daydream by Shaun Von Dragen. Also, Katie McNeill has a new Beyond Bounds urban fantasy column up; good stuff.

Somehow I missed this: At Voices of New Orleans, Colleen Mondor reviews Poppy Z. Brite's short story collection Antediluvian Tales.

At Monsters & Critics, Sandy Amazeen reviews D.M. Cornish's Monster Blood Tattoo: Foundling and Stephen R. Donaldson's Fatal Revenant.

Much new stuff at Sci Fi Dimensions: new reviews of In War Times by Kathleen Ann Goonan, Lois McMaster Bujold's The Sharing Knife Legacy, A.E Van Vogt's Slan and Kevin J. Anderson's Slan Hunter.
