Dec 29, 2009 by

I’m aware of the issue with the titles of posts here on this site after the recent facelift.  Trying to get it fixed, but the people I need to check with are apparently on holiday, so please be patient while I try to get this sorted.

In the meantime, let me know if you find any other anomalies, or just what you think!

Dec 28, 2009 by

Michael Chabon talks about genres and his new book Manhood for Amateurs in io9.com, which is surprisingly good with interesting book related stuff, I’m finding out lately.

Michael Chabon‘s celebrated science fiction and geeky pop culture, and his latest book Manhood For Amateurs is a love letter to fandom. So when we managed to ask him a few questions, we were excited to geek out about genres.

Check it out here.

Merry Christmas Everybody!

Dec 24, 2009 by

A double whammy!  I’ve been behind in posting the episodes, so I’ve taken a couple of days off to concentrate on nothing but to prepare the best of literature podcasting entertainment to you, our loyal listeners.  Yes, the two of you.

So both of our most recent episodes are up now.   Last week, however, broke our pretty good record of the past couple of months of steady weekly productions.  My internet connection screwed up over the weekend, which necessitated my abstinence from our regular gathering, and what a miss it was.  Gem, who’ve taken a sabbatical to India, has returned, and the folks who did turn up last week had a merry ole’ time.  There was, unfortunately, no recording of that session, because I wasn’t there.  I’ll have to make sure there’s another one of us can record the show without me very soon – these chats we have outside of our recordings are endlessly fascinating; much laughter, chit-chat and fun.

Here’s hoping we’ll get Gem back on the show before she runs out on us again early next year.

So anyway, I wanted to take this opportunity, on behalf of everyone of us in Bookbabble, to wish all of our dear readers and listeners a Very Merry Christmas!
