A Saturday Afternoon Link up!

The Saturday morning hangover is now just a (still slightly painful) memory and I'm now in a position where I can look at a computer screen without it going all blurry and me feeling like someone is sticking knives in my eyes!
Without further ado, here's some of the bits and pieces that caught my eye this week. If you haven't seen them already then I think you should check them out...

Pat points us at this article from Orson Scott Card. I'm not sure whether he has a point or it's a severe case of sour grapes...

Chris has done something that I still can't work out how to do, post Youtube clips onto his blog. For your viewing pleasure, Chris has three clips of Neil Gaiman reading Shoggoth's Old Peculiar...

If you're a Terry Brooks fan then you ought to head over to A Dribble of Ink where Aidan has the cover art for Terry's forthcoming novel 'The Gypsy Morph'.

Fantasy Book Critic reckons Chris Evans' 'A Darkness Forged In Fire'(Book One of The Iron Elves) is going to be one to watch out for in 2008. If he's right then be there right at the start by reading this Interview

Sci-Fi Chick reviews Iron Man: Beneath The Armour. I am really looking forward to seeing this film!

There is so much good stuff going on at Urban Fantasy Land that I wouldn't even know where to point you at first. Just click on the link and find your own way from there ;o)

I'm looking forward to seeing 'Iron Man', Amras got there first and This is what he thought...

What am I up to? Well, here's the thing. Books with 'paranormal romance' are starting to appear amongst the books I receive. This isn't something I normally read but one of the points behind starting this blog was to try stuff I'd never read before... Therefore things are going to get a little 'romantic' next week as far as my reading goes, at the very least I hope to discover what the difference is between 'paranormal romance' and 'urban fantasy'! Stick around and see where my journey takes me. Seriously, please stick around as I really don't want to do this one on my own!

Have a great weekend!

Check out the Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.W. Ward if you want some decent paranormal romance.

Thanks for the link, and I hope your hangover is better today! ;)

Mine isn't, though I haven't drunken anything, so I'm probably dying from something else.

To get the YouTube videos, go onto the YouTube page with the video you want; it says "embed" on the right hand side. Click the text and it will highlight, copy and then paste straight into your normal post :)
