CRITICAL LINKING: November 4, 2011

Our daily round-up of bookish links. Tastes great with coffee.


“So instead of condemning Duncan, I’ll close it out with a list of reasons why genre writers are like porn stars.”

I don’t even know what to say about this.


“I open the book up to see that the man used pages of it as toilet paper.”

Man, the literary web was all over the place yesterday.


“While reading “Moby-Dick” is a bit like being stoned, it also evokes an Asperger’s air.”

Seriously, did everyone spend yesterday eating crazy sandwiches?


“Everything I’ve ever written was composed in notebooks first. I have hundreds of them filled with my scribbles tucked away in boxes. I also buy them obsessively, so I probably have just as many empty notebooks lying around the house ready and waiting to be filled.”

Ok, now you are screwing with me, internet. No way you didn’t mean to freak me out with this The Usual Suspects reference.
