Today’s linkpost is a little early, and contains poetry, translation, and a literary treasure hunt of sorts.
This is a great interview of Zen Cho and Stephanie Feldman by Sofia Samatar.
Ted Hodgkinson interviewed Daniel Hahn and Fahmida Riaz about literary translation.
Samantha Shannon answers readers’ questions. (Beware Mime Order spoilers.)
The Book Smugglers announced their new slate of short stories, which should be great.
Zen Cho has set up a directory of Malaysian SFF writers and projects.
A new issue of Through the Gate is out. I particularly liked the poem ‘Juli’ by M Sereno, which I found heart-shattering and powerful.
I love the Where Ghostwords Dwell project. The site is dedicated to discarded text, forgotten words and the memory of dead manuscripts, and each entry embeds links hinting at its origin, or pointing the reader forwards towards further connections. It’s part Russian doll, part literary treasure hunt, and I love it.
I leave you with every argument about Buffy on the internet from 1998 to now. This is one blog post where you’re going to want to read every single comment, and it makes me ridiculously happy.
