  • Mood:
This Michael Feingold review of Park Honan's Christopher Marlowe biography (via Bondgirl) annoyed the heck out of me.

Nothing like discarding the last forty years of Marlowe scholarship in favor of the largely discredited but oh-so-romantic blackened page version, Mr. Feingold. And can we talk about taking Mr. Honan to task for avoiding textual biography?

Somebody get me a stick.

Via genreneep, the Clarke shortlist:

Kazuo Ishiguro – Never Let Me Go
Ken MacLeod – Learning the World
Alastair Reynolds – Pushing Ice
Geoff Ryman – Air
Charles Stross – Accelerando
Liz Williams – Banner of Souls
Conga Rats, autopope and mevennen!
