Next up, best-selling author John Scalzi had an excellent essay about the carping about the National Novel Writing Month event in November:

And Scalzi has also weighed in with several entries about the James Frey book packaging debacle (just search through the blog, there’s like four of them):

YA author Maureen Johnson also did a great piece on James Frey on her blog:

On a far more positive subject, The Daily Titan did a terrific if too short interview with alums legendary SFF authors Tim Powers, James Blaylock and K.W. Jeter, the guy who brought the term steampunk to the field:
