Among the books that caught my eye were the following two titles (nothing else really caught my imagination this month):
• The publisher’s site has a brief description, and a Q&A with McKillip
Science fiction novel about a monastic order on the planet Arbre that maintains secular knowledge, threatened by an extraterrestrial force that portends global disaster.
• The publisher’s site has this description, with its ‘browse inside’ feature.
• Stephenson’s page for the book links excerpts from reviews, a Wiredinterview, a trailer and video interviews, seven tracks of music “from the World of Anathem“, and excerpts from the book’s Dictionary.
This is a follow-up to my previous post on using a Wiki to organize writing work. I’m personally not sure it’s going to work for me. The Tiddly Wiki mentioned last time only allows for editing on screen and not adding other documents, so although it looked nice I decided to look at some of the other Wikis out there. I have found that you basically need to pay a corporate style subscription fee if you want to post any reasonable amount of content – i.e. over a GB.
