Sunday night genre link round-up. Abbreviated edition.

I have thirty minutes before I need to boogie on outa here, so a short list of links today:
At Omnivoracious, Jeff VanderMeer interviews Gregory Frost about his new book Shadowbridge. (And Frost has a lot to say about John Clute's bizarre and scathing review of Shadowbridge.)

The New York Times talks about why it takes so long for a manuscript to become a finished book. Good stuff!

Also at the New York Times, Dave Itzkoff reviews China Mieville's Un Lun Dun and InterWorld, co-authored by Michael Reaves and Neil Gaiman. Itzkoff also manages to insult every single YA author in the universe. Idjit.

At the Contra Costa Times, Clay Kallam reviews In the Cities of Coin and Spice by Cat Valente, Thunderer by Felix Gilman, The Merchant's War by Charles Stross, and Linnea Sinclair's Games of Command.

The Guardian UK reviews Halting State by Charles Stross, Debatable Space by Philip Palmer, and Off Armageddon Reef by David Weber.

The Telegraph also reviews Halting State as well as The Margarets by Sheri S. Tepper.
