Mindy Klasky, fellow author, has a poll set up over here. I know many of flist people are over there too, and indeed I see some familiar names amongst the comments there - but if you haven't seen it, please consider going over there and giving her (and all of us scribblers) some valuable feedback.

Many thanks!

LInk salad - closing a few tabs

* John Scalzi responds to an article about "real" lit crit versus the blogger revolution; if you want to read the original article to which he is referring, it's here

* On a different note, haven't you always wondered what would happen if an author's "characters" took him to court...?

* via a number of you on my friends list, here's an instructive photo essay on what the world eats. My own response is that I now want to be Sicillian, and that the amount of junk food on some of those (developed country) tables leaves me speechless, and that the weekly food budgets from various families leave me slack-jawed. Worth a look.
