Three William Gibson-related links:
An interview; John Clute reviews ; and for those in London, Spook Country an evening with William Gibson, 28th August. More on the
Campbell Award: a juror speaks. Christopher McKitterick explains the process and his manifesto for science fiction. Also, there are lots of interesting comments in the
reviewing in the blogosphere thread, if you haven’t seen them.
The Kirkus SF and fantasy special. [pdf]
A working canon of slipstream writings, as compiled by panellists at Readercon. Paul Kincaid comments here; Martin Lewis comments here and here. Lots of sf interest at Bookslut this month, as well as Paul Kincaid’s
column: reviews of , The Apocalypse Reader , and Best American Fantasy ; and Adrienne Martini tackles Sherri S. Tepper Salon Fantastique in her column.

Man writes sf novel on phone and self-publishes it on Lulu.com. And finally: you find the most useful bits of information hidden in Charles Brown’s “Editorial Matters” column in
Locus. For instance, the news that Neal Stephenson’s next novel, which he hopes to finish this year, is “set in the future, on a different planet, and is shorter.” Waterhouse in space, anyone?
