  • The venerable New York Times dips its toe into the blogging waters with The Pour, Eric Asimov's wine blog, and restaurant critic Frank Bruni's Diner's Journal. Welcome, fellows. The sites look great!
  • The Guardian remembers the late science-fiction author Octavia Butler.
  • Catch up with a September interview of the author of Heavy Words, Lightly Thrown on WNYC radio's Leonard Lopate Show. The book concerns the origins of nursery rhymes. Rawther naughty, they are.
