Sad news that Frederik Pohl, legendary SF writer, has died at the age of 93. The Guardian has a nice obituary.
On the Tor UK blog, my editor asks if book browsing is a lost art:
“But I’m curious to know whether with the saturation of information, have we all taken the fun out of book browsing? Or have we just shortened the odds in ensuring that in our hectic lifestyles, we have a better chance of picking up a book that we know we’ll enjoy rather than finding one we think we might enjoy?”
And finally, via Daniel Abraham on Twitter, a ‘geek’ boy makes misogynistic comments, and ends up making a complete idiot of himself in front of the world.
