Salman Rushdie has recently had the bounty on his head reinstated and the reward upped, so he went on Today to talk about the recent storm generated by a youtube video. First, I just don’t see the point of going after Rushdie. It was stupid then, it’s stupid now and I just wish the guy could live his life. I also agree with him about people doing things like the youtube video just to get people riled up. At the same time I find it pathetic that such a large group of people could be so easily and transparently trolled into action. Wake up.
Richard Kadrey’s doing a blog this week for Powell’s Books. Today he wrote about writing a series rather than a singular novel. As always, it comes in Kadrey’s inimitable style. If you like his books or his twitter feed, you won’t be disappointed.

William Gibson has an excellent interview on Wired.

Alright, that’s it for today. I have other work I need to dive into and the hour is growing late.
