Critical Linking: April 6th, 2014


There are many ways to die in Westeros. Which way will you go?

Macabre fun this is.


Kazuo Ishiguro’s first novel in a decade, The Buried Giant, will be released next March, his publisher Faber & Faber has announced.

Excited for this.


When a new author publishes a title, marketing and PR can consume more hours than actually writing the book. Screwpulp helps writers manages that by gradually increasing the price of books with increased readership. Once a book is downloaded 25 times, it goes from free to $1, increasing incrementally with demand.

Pricing gimmicks generally don’t interest me, but this sort of elastic pricing makes a degree of sense. No idea if it’ll work though.
