Starting today, I’ll be giving a little weekly “link love” here for book and history lovers as well as a mind-body-spirit link roundup at The Spiritual Eclectic blog.
The links on my Librarians blog are often little tidbits that turned up in my research. The Dark Ages and, to a lesser degree, The Middles Ages have always stirred my interest. This week?
Islamic Group to Destroy Centuries-Old Texts (this one plays soooo closely to my plans for book 3 that it’s eerie)
I discovered Ray Bradbury, Arthur C. Clarke, Ursula LeGuin, Harlan Ellison, and D.C. Fontana when I was about 12, and those early works have always had a big impression on the types of worlds I build in my books. That doesn’t mean I’m completely serious! Which is why the irreverent and somewhat offensive Rachel Bloom video about her affections for Ray Bradbury make me grin. Warning: NSFW!
