What I’m thinking about this week:
- Paleo diet presumptions drive me nuts. Maybe we should all just start eating monkeys. Here’s a (kind of wordy) counter-argument.
- Koalas with human fingerprints! And why glycoproteins keep fish from freezing.
- I am listening to Hari Kunzru’s “Gods Without Men” on audio this week. I’m on Disc 5 (of 12), and I love it! Slip Inside This House with Kunzru’s mixtape playlist.
- Once upon a time in the West, it was totes okay for men to hold hands. (In other places–India, for example–it still is)
- At WisCon 36, I went to a great reading with Chris Barzak— he read from a funny ghost story, a bit out of character for him; Mary Rickert (she read a short story about angels, coming on Tor.com), and Ben Rosenbaum read from “Elsewhere”. Sofia Samatar read from her new novel, “A Stranger in Olondria,” a rich, captivating tale of a young man’s journey. This week her story “Honey Bear” is in Clarkesworld. Read it.
- Also? I would like to eat this. Thank you, that is all.
