Booklamp.org is a new site that promises to help you pick books you will like, based on a statistcal word analysis of books you already like. Watch the video on the site, this sounds like something all book lovers would just adore. It’s beta, they only have a couple of hundred books in there, but see if you dig it, and while you’re at it submit INFECTED as the next book they will put into the database. On the submission form, you want to include INFECTED‘s ISBN number of 0307406105.
Apparently you Junkies aren’t the only ones who rip on General Siglerisimo. Do I walk around with a sign on my forehead that says "fuck with me?" Check out this blog post from writer Jeff Vandermeer. Now before you freak out on him, I accosted Jeff after seeing this and he seems like a good guy – very much in the "I like to give people shit" Junkie mode of thinking. He also gave INFECTED some big-time cover play in his blog, which is really great. However, it looks like Jeff can take as well as he gives (as you can see by the comments), so feel free to leave a comment and say "hi."
Here’s a quote from Jeff’s blog post: "The author photo makes me really hate this guy. I get the feeling he’s actually about five-two and wears thick-rimmed glasses. But in the photo he looks like he’s gonna come in the window and beat the living shit out of me and my family, steal our stuff, and piss on the welcome mat."
