Menagerie of links

Lots of fun and interesting things afoot this week. You guys have been busy:

  • The Great Starship Battle, via The Collaborative Writing Project at SciFi Wiki. In which nerds gather to create a story, with each author contributing a paragraph at a time. Involves the TARDIS. (h/t to John R)
  • A letter from EB White to the schoolchildren of Troy, NY. Libraries are magical. Via John Fugelsang's Twitter feed. (Cassandra)
  • An announcement about Amazon's Kindle Worlds, which sparked a lively and ongoing (as of Tuesday 5/28) discussion among the Sockmonkeys who write or are otherwise interested in fan fiction. Additional link to a post at John Scalzi's blog: Amazon's Kindle Worlds: Instant Thoughts. (h/t to Tatiana M and Amanda C)
  • An essay on "survivorship bias" from author Tobias S. Buckell (h/t to Kyle J)

Hope everyone's staying dry out there. What with the perpetual downpour and all. <3 Washington, amirite?
