Monday morning links

The Rap Sheet has some good info. It seems Richard Morgan has a new novel coming out (Scroll way down). It is not a Kovacs novel, but it deals with one of Morgan's favorite themes. In this book, we have another technologically created super-soldier who is no longer needed. I suppose this is a evolution of some of hthe questions posed in Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep or even Battlestar Galatica. Anyway, Morgan writes excellent blends of noir fiction and science fiction along with doses of his non-idealistic leftist viewpoint. I am excited for this one.

The Rap Sheet also has an item on Ian Fleming, be sure to read the linked article called Bond in Torment. Also Hugh Jackman is attempting to build an action movie franchise. It certainly worked for Matt Damon.

Portland Metroblogs has an amusing bit on which global conspiracy is dominating PDX.

How would you like to be described as an "adequately excellent lover"? That's how HP Lovecraft's wife described him. Maybe that is why he wrote stories about going insane.

Boba Fett has a blog, not much action on it though.

Extending the trend to cash in on the Young Adult market China Mieville has a new book for the adolecent set.
