Linky Love - interviews, conferences, and star wars weather, oh my.

Current Theme Song (aka what's playing on my ipod right now): Be Human by Yoko Kanno [Ghost in the Shell soundtrack]. This song is so cool.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if authors were paired up with their pet personae? Here is a very funny and rather adorable consideration for a few.

You can find out more what is coming out of the talented author of Sabriel (and many others) in Tor's interview with Garth Nix. In it you find out all kinds of coolness about Lord Sunday and upcoming books, including another installment from The Old Kingdom AND a semi-sequel to Abhorsen! Can I say WOOT!!!!!

Today is Edgar Allen Poe's birthday. Every year there is a mysterious visitor who comes to his grave leaving a half filled bottle of cognac and three roses, but today he did not show for the first time in 60 years.

We've had a Kissing Day Blog-fest, an Almost/No Kissing Blog-fest, and now, there is about to be a Fight Day Blog-fest! Come join in the rumpus (literally). Whether it is posting a excerpt from a favorite novel or writing an original piece of your own, join in the fun. (I personally would love to see more novel examples. The Hunger Games is immediately coming to mind). It's all going down Feb 1st.

Ever wondered what the your current weather is like reflected in the Star Wars universe? Well, now you can know with the Star Wars Weather Forecast. Mine has been looking like Hoth for about a month now, but last night I got one for Bespin. Yay fog!

Tiffany Trent, the wonderful author of the Hallowmere books is doing something very cool. She is calling out to see if there is an interest in a Virtual MG/YA SFF Conference. All the details are on her post. I, for one, am in.

And the absolutely fabulous Nathan Hale, illustrator of Rapunzel's Revenge and Calamity Jack has put up LEGO versions of the characters, complete with diorama. Check it out.
