Critical Linking: The Most-Read Stories, July 1st – 5th, 2013

Here are the most-read stories from the last week in Critical Linking…

 

Shelly Bond, executive editor of the imprint of DC Entertainment, said Monday that Gaiman is working with artist J.H. Williams III to tell stories of Morpheus’ world before he was captured. Titled “The Sandman: Overture,” the new series will appear bi-monthly starting Oct. 30 in comic shops and digitally, too.

Well now that’s excellent news.

Once a week, students from the Keystone to Discovery Enrichment program, a nonprofit summer and after-school project for behaviorally or academically at-risk youth, head to Bitter Root Humane Association to read to shelter animals that are waiting for adoption. The program not only gives the kids a chance to work on their reading skills, but also helps soothe the animals.

Don’t read the rest of this unless you have 30 minutes to recover.

The Culture is an advanced society in whose midst most of Mr Banks’s Sci-Fi novels take place. Thanks to their technology they are able to hollow out asteroids and use them as ships capable of faster-than-light travel while providing a living habitat with centrifugally-generated gravity for their thousands of denizens. I’d like to think Mr Banks would have been amused to have his own rock

And now one of those asteroids will forever be known as IainBanks.
