Some Good Links

- Ed over at Bibliothecary has been writing a few book reviews, and also has some excellent links to writers writing about writing.

- The Globe's BookBlog notes a report that some 98-99% of all books published are now out of print, including some by such noted authors as Roald Dahl, H.G. Wells and Gore Vidal.

- GalleyCat asks if there are way too many "great books" (by which they apparently mean books that will sell oodles of copies) coming out this fall, noting current or upcoming releases from everyone: Stephen King, Grisham, Steele, Crichton, Atwood, Allende, Frazier, Woodward, Vidal, Gaiman ... their list goes on. The one they mention that I hadn't known about (and will read) is the short-story collection coming from Susanna Clarke, of Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell fame.

- "Scoop" News (NZ) runs a review of Donald Jackson Karr's new book, Amassing Treasures for All TImes: Sir George Grey, Colonial Bookman and Collector.

JBD,

Thanks again for the link. By the way, I'll be reviewing the new Susanna Clarke collection of stories, The Ladies of Grace Adieu, for the Inq. When you read it, let me know what you think.
