Round-up: Bird is the word.

  • This fall’s best YA covers and concepts. Fuck. Yes.
  • Everybody’s talking about Mockingjay! I haven’t read any of the Hunger Games books, but they’re apparently a pretty big deal. Scholastic reports that Mockingjay sold over 450,000 copies its first week (compare to, say, Stephenie Meyer’s Eclipse, which sold a respectable 250,000 its first week). Jesus. Here’s the A.V. Club’s A- review.
  • Guardian interviews one of my favorite human beings on the planet, Terry Pratchett.
  • Speaking of the Guardian, now’s the time to nominate for the Not the Booker prize. @neilhimself and I both recommend nominating a SF writer.
  • And speaking of @neilhimself (like that segue?), Sandman is going to be a TV show, not a movie. Please, please don’t fuck this up.
  • Hey, it’s Dale Chihuly’s boathouse! Hey Dale Chihuly’s boathouse!

  • PW is always a reliable source for quality, thoughtful literary features. Like this guy: Rousing the Sleepers, a look at exciting fall books from indie presses.
  • Finally, a new edition of the Chicago Manual of Style is coming out, so they’re giving away free ebooks of the old edition. You’re welcome. And if you’re just curious about what the significant changes are to the new edition, here’s that too.

Have a super weekend!
