I Have No Brain and I Must Blog

This week is kicking my butt. And also my elbow, courtesy of a slip in the driveway yesterday.

So have a pair of links.

  • The new issue of the fanzine Journey Planet has some pieces about privilege from John Scalzi, Erin Hoffman, Emma England, James Bacon, and a reprint of “Facts are Cool” by yours truly.
  • The latest SF Signal Mind Meld is about monarchies in fantasy. I channel my inner Loki, and there are also contributions from Daniel Abraham, Delia Sherman, Diana Pharaoh Francis, James Maxey, Kristen Bell, Marie Brennan, Mark Charan Newton, Martha Wells, Mazarkis Williams, Mieneke van der Salm, Sherwood Smith, and Yves Meynard.

Also, have a funny from my son. I posted this on Twitter and Facebook last night:

  • The boy made a LEGO minifig of himself and showed it to me. Then he took the hair off and said, “Now it’s you!”

And that’s all I’ve got for today.
