Received the Soul Song galley and cover flats. Pretty man on pretty cover. Merman. No sight of a tail, but I assure you, it’s there in the book. I make ‘em proper, those underwater types!
I recently discovered that the 80’s television series, Beauty and the Beast, is out on DVD. Also available is a new cd of music and poetry from the show. And when I say music and poetry, I mean all those poems that Vincent used to recite in practically every episode. Now, I don’t know about you guys, but that was always one of my favorite parts—and it’s all on this album. Ron Perlman. Vincent. Sonnets. With the original music. And as a fan, let me just say that it is good.
Some fun links from Bookseller Chick, especially this one: http://girl-wonder.org/ (our goals are to foster an attentive, empowered audience community and to encourage respect and high-quality character depiction within the [comic book] industry) To which I say, a very hearty “cool.”
Other things that caught my notice: This blog entry (Be Vewwy, Vewwy Quiet�We�re Hunting Wimmins!) and this article, product of way-too-much-time-on-one’s-hands, about Comparative Sex-Specific Body Mass Index in the Marvel Universe and the “Real” World.
