Friday links

posted by Graham Sleight @ 5:52 AM 

Light posting round here because I'm still getting back on my feet. Some links:

- The Robert Holdstock memorial fund
- Short fiction from non-anglophone authors in the big three magazines: a comprehensive survey. (ETA: Updated here.)
- In case you hadn't seen it: John Scalzi takes Black Matrix publishing to task for breathtakingly low fiction payment rates (1, 2); SF signal publishes attempted rebuttal; epic comment thread ensues.
- Today's (London) Times had a banner headline "First review of Avatar"; as Emily Bell tweeted, "presumably for people without internet access"
- Helpful summary of New Moon.
- Whither fantasy? from Hal Duncan (at length) and M John Harrison (not at length).
- Matte vs Gloss, the eternal debate.
- Gorgeous (but currently sold out) mix of 20th and 21st century audio tech.
- The UK may be drowning in government debt, but we're getting our own space agency! I do hope they employ Stephen Baxter.

And finally, not particularly sf-nal, but an impossibly addictive Flash game.

ETA: And happy 80th birthday, sf fandom!
