There are things in the hopper, but it’s April 1st and I’m dealing with zombie and cannibal invasions and the devastating How I Met Your Mother t.v. series finish, so here are a few mild funnies that people did today:
— Over at SF Signal, author Tom O’Donnell writes a funny piece in which he refutes SF Signal‘s supposedly negative review of his barbarian fantasy novel.
— Author Ada Hoffmann gives her conference schedule for the non-existent but should totally exist Dinosaurcon 2014.
— Every year, John Scalzi does something elaborate for April Fool’s Day, usually involving his friends, and at one point, scoring Hugo nominations for it. This year, his pal author Mary Robinette Kowal does the honors. Yeah, fine, but we know that Young Man’s War: First Contact is totally going to happen.
— And just because photos from of our planet are cool, here’s NASA‘s warm-hearted joke for the day.
