I am not handling this back-to-work thing well. Especially since it’s pretty full-on at the moment. So many things to do, so little time…
I want to review Eileen Wilks‘ “Blood Challenge”, which I will, but probably not today, as I’m finding myself yawning at odd intervals, and will probably cave in and have a bit of a nap soon. So in lieu of actual content, here are some links:
Jennie has posted new Mary Stewart covers at her Mary Stewart Novels fansite, and I am totally in love with them. I am very tempted to get another copy of the “The Ivy Tree”, which is possibly my favourite Stewart!
At Sounis, the Megan Whalen Turner livejournal fan community, they’ve put up the concept art for the cover of “A Conspiracy of Kings”, which is all kinds of fascinating.
And sticking with the cover art theme, here’s a new-to-me group blog called Muddy Covers, by some of the cover artists I love, and again, it’s really interesting behind-the-scenes stuff. For instance, Dan Dos Santos (who does the fantastic Mercy Thompson US covers, amongst others) blogs about his covers for Gini Koch‘s Alien SF books, which I am meaning to read at some point.
