Good reads from around the Web.
Publishing a day early this week folks, as many of my US chums will be celebrating a national holiday.
I’ve been doing a little housekeeping on the blog. I’ve removed the background (though it was distracting) to make content easier to read, changed the navigation menus and created an Archives area which provides easy access to all previous blog posts. If you can’t find something you’re looking for try using the Search feature (on the sidebar of every web page) or drop me a message.
Next week will be the 5th Birthday of the SFTW newsletter. Absolute madness to think it has been in circulation for 5 years and of course we’ll be doing something to celebrate, make sure you don’t miss it!
