Linkgasm is Really Random

I’ve already posted most of these to Twitter, but I collected some of my recent favorites here, for future reference.

Gossamer Obsessions has a terrific post on To Have and To Hold by Patricia Gaffney.

This is a really great analysis at Salon – is this novel about war, or abuse? The twisted mind of Ender’s Game.

Abigail Nussbaum on 3 productions of “Much Ado About Nothing” – Branagh, Whedon, and Rourke.

The 1984 PBS version of “12 Years a Slave,” starring Avery Brooks. Also, a post on the new movie: Why ’12 Years A Slave’ Is Different From ‘The Help’ And ‘Django Unchained’–-And Why It Matters by Alyssa Rosenberg.

Review of The Golem and The Jinni BY Helene Wecker – sounds like a really intriguing historical fantasy – “Jewish and Syrian immigrant communities in turn-of-the-century New York.”

A Vampire is a Flexible Metaphor: An Interview with Kelly Link by Meghan McCarron.

Finally, I am really excited to see this movie:
