Short links this week–I’m out of town for the holiday weekend here in the US; I’ll be lobbyconning at Balticon on Saturday. You will know me because I’ll probably be reading this (I am totally gloating, by the way):
I’m on page 94 as of this writing and I’m just basically YASSSSSSSSS about it.
- Intrepid link discoverer Lilysea has two for us this week:
- And a really fantastic submission from Mae Fuller–this is what they have to say about it: “This is one of those important posts that describe something so simple and obvious it feels as if I should have always known, but I don’t think I’ve seen it conceptualised like this before. I think it’s a really important and timely contribution to our current and ongoing conversations about gender.“
- Science is fucking awesome: A Shocking Find In a Neanderthal Cave In France.
- I am really loving all of Rose Eveleth’s writing on bodyhacking these days: What Makes Something Bodyhacking?
- “People are not defined by their flaws“–an amazing post from Mishell Baker on forgiveness.
- Charlie Jane Anders has insightful things to say about the Hugo Awards mess.
- This makes me so happy: the Eugie Foster Memorial Award for Short Fiction or, the Eugie Award.
- Chuck Wendig on why showing up is important (this is something I’m learning as I try to develop a daily exercise habit): Winning, Losing, And Participating: Shut Up About The Trophy
- Helen Keller was a total badass and it really makes me mad that people don’t know how radical her politics were.
- I’m Chronically Ill and Afraid of Being Lazy
