Weekly Wonders and Wackiness


Not sure about everyone else but I am frequently receiving promo requests from folks with various Kickstarter projects. One I received this week I found quite entertaining and would have loved when I was younger; a new and improved version of beer pong. Yep, you read that right. Just love the earnestness of the sales pitch.


Under the category of wackiness lets talk about climate change deniers. Loosed Upon the World is a terrific anthology just out that, presents a collection of climate change stories. If you know a denier, buy this, and give them a copy and maybe it will scare them out of their complacency.

COVER COPY:

This is the definitive collection of climate fiction from John Joseph Adams, the acclaimed editor of The Best American Science Fiction & Fantasy and Wastelands. These provocative stories explore our present and speculate about all of our tomorrows through terrifying struggle, and hope.

Join the bestselling authors Margaret Atwood, Paolo Bacigalupi, Nancy Kress, Kim Stanley Robinson, Jim Shepard, and over twenty others as they presciently explore the greatest threat to our future.

This is a collection that will challenge readers to look at the world they live in as if for the first time.

If you spend any amount of time on the Interwebz you undoubtedly use Google. Finding what you want without sorting through pages of results is always a challenge in the category of wonderful here is 10 of the Coolest Google Tricks to make you life easier.


In the wacky category I was going to add the just released Gag Reel for Age of Ultron but there was nary a giggle in the whole thing. I just saved you two minutes of your life. Also over at Flavorwire they posted this article Are Grown-up Coloring Books the Future of Publishing? Seriously folks?
