The Almost Humpday Links Post

Jeff VanderMeer has finished Predator: South China Sea. He offers up "tips" on how to complete a novel in around two months and have it feel like it's a thing that doesn't suck.

Although others doubtless have read this, the Preliminary Nebula Ballot is up.

Christopher Barzak won the Crawford Award, given to debuting fantasy authors, for his One for Sorrow, which I reviewed earlier this month.

John Picacio has the artwork up for the upcoming Michael Moorcock release, Elric: The Stealer of Souls. Very impressive work there.

Lucius Shepard has a hilarious booksigning story about offending an audience outside of his expectations.

Nick Mamatas reminds us that there are nuttier O-C types out there than SF bloggers.

Robert of Fantasy Book Critic recently posted a very nicely-done list of a few dozen SF authors' picks for Best of 2007, anticipated 2008 releases, and updates on their personal work.

Shadow Unit, a new multimedia project from Elizabeth Bear, Emma Bull, Sarah Monette, and Will Shetterly, is now up. Apparently there'll be regularly-updated "episodes" in the very near future.

Clarkesworld Magazine recently interviewed Daniel Abraham.

Prime Books' Fantasy Magazine has a regular feature called "Fantasy Friday: Blog for a Beer" Since many of us like "adult beverages" and like to rant and rave...

John Scalzi has done Ten Things You Probably Haven't Done

Finally, if you want to learn more about a radical 60s group, I just posted a short review of Students for a Democratic Society: A Graphic History on my personal blog.

And that's about that for the week. I need to get back to thinking up a few more questions for an upcoming interview that I'll be posting here later this month.
