book links 10-2-12

My less than glorious return to book blogging after a short hiatus. About every two weeks I have to make a weekend trip home for whatever various reasons and while they are rejuvenating in a get the hell out of the city sort of way, they also play all sorts of hell with my schedule and rhythm. I end up simply out of sorts for a bit. Anyway, here’s my links for the day.

This is apparently the very last thing Ray Bradbury wrote before venturing away from this world. It’s excerpted from The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2012.  You know, it’s Ray Bradbury. It’s worth the read.

Terry Pratchett has just went and set up his own media company. I like it. It’s interesting and a bit daring. It sounds like Pratchett is looking to have total control of his works and doing something with them that maybe wouldn’t have been done otherwise (such as adapting them to film).  It could either implode with no one caring, or it could  take off. I wish the guy luck.

Finally, The Paris Review has an interview with William S. Burroughs. Maybe this is just nostalgia day, dealing with links involving some older (or, regrettably, dead) authors, but I like the mix. You can’t go wrong checking out the works from any of these folks, in the articles or in their various works.  Alright, that’s all folks.
