Tuesday night link round-up.

Okay, keeping the format simple these days so I can keep doing the genre link round-ups. They take a lot of time but I do enjoy sharing them with you. So forgive me if there isn't as much commentary going forward:
The Publishing Spot interviews Janice Erlbaum, author of Girlbomb. Not genre but good stuff about making a living as a writer.

At Omnivoracious, Jeff likes The Somnambulist by Jonathan Barnes.

Austin American-Statesman profiles Elizabeth Moon.

The Ditmars shortlist has been announced.

Kansas City Star
on George R.R. Martin's Inside Straight, Carrie Vaughn's Kitty and the Silver Bullet, S.L. Farrell's A Magic of Twilight, and Wastelands, edited by John Joseph Adams.

Blogcritics.org on fanfic. Also, a review of Jo Graham's debut novel Black Ships.

The Telegraph UK on Rick Moody's The Omega Force.

January Magazine on Shadowbridge by Gregory Frost.

Darque Reviews on Whitechapel Gods by S.M (Shawn) Peters. (Peters just sold a new book to editor Jessica Wade at Roc, by the way. And if you haven't read this book, and you love steampunk, then what in heaven's name are you waiting for?) Also, an interview with urban fantasy author Karen MacInerney, as well as a review of her forthcoming book Howling at the Moon.

::: and oh God! taking a quick break to scoop out the litterbox which has suddenly become a health hazard - and we're back! :::

ActuSF has interviews with Michael Moorcock and L.E Modesitt en anglais.

The Aqueduct Press blog interviews Vandana Singh, author of Love and Other Monsters.

Fantasy Book Critic on Heart of Light by Sarah Hoyt, Bone Song by John Meaney, as well as an interview with Jonathan Barnes.

Fabulous new blog discovery Urban Fantasy Land has a review of Anton Strout's debut urban-fantasy-starring-a-boy Dead To Me. (What? No hot chick in leather with a tramp stamp on the cover??? Horrors! What's a dyke to do?!)

Andy Wheeler also discusses Dead to Me.

SF Signal reviews Deep Inside, a collection of fun erotic SF stories by Polly Frost. There's also a review of Hunter's Run by George R.R. Martin, Gardner Dozois and Daniel Abraham.

That fanfic article was really interesting, and the Janice Erlbaum interview was cool, too. Thanks for pointing them out!

I love your link round-ups. :)

Speaking of steampunk, I was at WonderCon in San Francisco this past weekend and saw some bomb steampunk costumes. Made me realize how much I've adored the genre over the years, even before I knew it had a name. Therefore, I come seeking recommendations, Ms. Lindsay (from you or anyone else here).

What are some of your favorite steampunk stories? I've read Alan Moore's LOEG, natch, and will definitely tuck into Whitechapel Gods. Who else might I enjoy?

Thanks in advance if anyone has the time.

Thank you for including Scott Shaffer's review of "Deep Inside" on SF Signal. Scott's such a terrific reviewer that I even enjoyed reading him when he didn't so much like one of my stories!

It's always great to read your blog and congrats on your new website!
