Wednesday night genre link round-up.

I am full of Hunan beef and steamed pea shoots with garlic and various other assorted spicy Chinese food thingies, and therefore must hie myself to bed. More genre links tomorrow.
At Ficlets, John Scalzi looks at Kristine Smith, author of Endgame, in the "Big Idea".

Mostly Fiction reviews Raw Shark Texts by Stephen Hall, Blood and Iron by Elizabeth Bear, Bad Monkeys by Matt Ruff, and Spook Country by William Gibson.

Blogcritics
has new reviews of Effendi and Pashazade by Jon Courtenay Grimwood, The Harrowing by Alexandra Solokoff, The Road to Hell by Jackie Kessler, and Cybermancy by Kelly McCullough. There's also a new urban fantasy Beyond Bounds column up by Katie MacNeill, with a focus on vampires.

Dear Author also looks at The Road to Hell by Jackie Kessler, as well as Dancing With Werewolves by Carole Nelson Douglas.

The Book Design Review has chosen its favorite book covers of the year; go check them out. (It would be interesting to get Bookscan numbers for these titles and see how the sales numbers actually correspond to the popularity of the jacket.)

Book Fetish has reviews of An Ice Cold Grave by Charlaine Harris, Scent of Darkness and Touch of Darkness by Christina Dodd, and Let Me In by John Ajvide Lindqvist.

Bookgasm has reviews of American Supernatural Tales, edited by S.T. Joshi, and Empire of Ivory by Naomi Novik.

Eve's Alexandria goes back in time a bit and revisits Juliet E. McKenna's Warrior's Bond. (and it's not genre, but there's also a great discussion of Affinity by Sarah Waters.)
