God, there were so many things I wanted to write about this week. I've got more to say about the short story, and have another book to review, but look, it's Friday already and I don't have anything. Here's some more round-up:
Okay, I like Philip Roth, but do we really need adjective overload here? "Greatest this" and "greatest that" and "sexiest this". It gets a little wearying. Not to mention that it's terrible journalism.
A new short story by Mario Vargas Llosa online for free translated by the always superb Edith Grossman.
A truly fascinating documentary on Steve Ditko, co-creator of Spider-Man including interviews with Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore and Stan Lee.
I've been forgetting to add the "via" to the blogs where I get my links a lot of the time, mostly because I just bookmark the links in delicious and then forget about where I got them from. So sorry to anyone who I got a link from who wasn't properly credited.
And that's it, I'm all caught up on my round-up links!
