An Interview With Karl Schroeder

Over at By The Way, I’m going absolutely crazy with the author interviews this week: I’m posting one a day through Friday, all the better to, you know, give these fabulous author maximum exposure during the holiday “what the Hell am I Going to Get Everyone For a Gift?” season. Clearly, the answer is: You should be getting people these author’s new books. Buy thousands of copies! Spread them all about the land! Like seeds to sprout minds! Go!

Er, anyway. Today’s interview features Karl Schroeder, whose latest book Sun of Suns has planet-sized fullerene balloons and swordfights and pretty much rocks the house in a serious way. Go now to receive his wisdom. Later this week, you’ll groove to the awesomeness of Karen Traviss, Charlie Stross, Sarah Hoyt and Sean Williams. It’s like a dream team lineup of science fiction and fantasy superheroes. They write! They fight crime! They bicker with Stan Lee dialogue! Well, perhaps not. But it would be interesting if they did.

Sorry, I keep getting tangentified. Here’s that link to the Karl Schroeder interview again. Check it out, won’t you?

Fun With Teh Catz

Athena saw yesterday’s “I Has a Flavor” kitty and wanted to do something similar, and provided an amusing prop with which to get best results. We applied prop to cat, took photos, and then added our text. Here’s Athena’s:

And mine:

Frankly, the cat’s expression is what makes it work.

But it wouldn’t be any fun if you didn’t get a shot at it, so, here:

Feel free to add your own caption and post it up somewhere. If you want to come back and leave a link to your newly-captioned picture of our royally humiliated cat, that’s fine with me too.
