Welcome to your Friday, the conclusion of the pentalogy known as the work week. We thought every installment in this pentalogy was superb, but we are planning on doing a prequel at some point. For now, take a look at nicely curated offisite links as you head into the duology of your weekend.
Today’s highlights include:
- Ken Liu Podcast interview.
- Why children prefer sci-fi to real science.
- Gaiman on Bradbury.
Every day Stubby the Rocket jets around the internet looking for links of interest. When Stubby finds these links, they get put in our handy Links of Interest section and sometimes on our Twitter and Facebook! Here’s today’s selection:
