Link Salad is a new feature for me, where I search high and low for fascinating links around the internet. OK, they’re fascinating to me, at least. I hope you find them entertaining as well! It’s been a long week and I’m really tired, so I only have four links today, but they’re extra good ones…
Stephen King has two new books coming out in 2013, including the much-anticipated Dr. Sleep, a sequel to his bestseller The Shining. Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive interview with the King of Horror about the sequel and how it came to be. Click here to read the interview!
In other Stephen King news, King has released a “Kindle Single” entitled Guns, an essay about his feelings on gun control. He discusses it with EW’s Shelf Life. You can purchase it from Amazon for only 99 cents for your Kindle, and all proceeds will go to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. I haven’t read it yet, but now that I have a new Kindle (more on that later!), it just might be my next purchase. Click here to read the Shelf Life article and purchase Guns.
WonderCon is a smaller version of the over-the-top Comic Con, and this March it calls Southern California home once again. Originally a Northern California event, it’s been held in Anaheim for the past two years, but if you live in So Cal, this might your last chance to attend this event in your own neighborhood. I’ve already bought my tickets, and you can too! Click here to learn more about WonderCon and purchase tickets.
Kevin Hearne, author of The Iron Druid Chronicles, is an awesomely funny guy…I haven’t met him in person, but I try to keep up with his blog and Facebook page. He comes up with some fun contests, and he’s got one going on right now until Valentine’s Day. He calls it a “Nerdscape Contest,” and you can learn all about it and enter here. You can win signed copies of his books, and you might even win…sausage! Don’t know what the heck a “Nerdscape” is? Then click the link!
