And speaking of Science Fiction.... This looks like a house straight out of a strange futurist story--or a villain's lair in a James Bond film. http://www.blessthisstuff.com/stuff/living/living-space/casa-brutale-by-opa-works/?
Casa Brutale is a spectacular project by OPA Works, an ambitious concept home that sits inside a cliff above the aegean sea. The minimalist home is composed by three concrete walls that form the main living space, the roof is a crystalline pool made of reinforced glass, that also functions as a massive skylight that floods the interior with natural light. The huge top-to-bottom front glass facade lets in plenty of light and offers dramatic views ...

Fairy tale cottage! Who knew my county had a claim to fame ASIDE from the nation's first female serial killer...? Same town, though.... (see the real estate listing here: http://www.johnlscott.com/Home/959347/NWM/3395-SE-Hidden-Valley-Wy-Olalla-WA-98359/)
After more than 10 years, a woman decides to sell her "Snow White" cottage in Olalla.

I've thought about this for a long time. One of the problems I see in current discourse is this attitude that people with whom we disagree are "stupid" or "evil" or "other." It makes it impossible to reach any consensus, and it drives social wedges deeper.
The “Other Side” Is Not Dumb ¶ There’s a fun game I like to play in a group of trusted friends called “Controversial Opinion.” The rules are simple: Don’t…

Took Banjo and Jack to the vet for follow up shots and discovered that Jack Puppikins now weighs 76 pounds--down 2 pounds from February. Banjo weighs 51--that's up 12 pounds from when we got him on Memorial Day weekend. And he's only 6 months old! Also: I am capable of restraining 126 pounds of determined doggies. But now my abs, shoulders, and back are telling me how out of shape I am. #jackpuppikins   #banjopuppy   #dailydog

(yes, I'm late to the party, but...) Zero World by Jason M. Hough is one hell of a book! If you like SF thrillers, spy thrillers with a SF twist, or devilishly clever assassin stories, this is a must read! Seriously. Go. Buy. Read.

Some of this is spot-on, and some just as confusing and contradictory as the industry itself. (Most of the info is about "literary fiction" but the author does look at genre a little, too, as well as self-pub and e-book.) I'm not sure it actually SAYS anything anyone can bank on, but it's a place to start thinking about the subject of book sales.

This is rather cool.
Media artist Akinori Goto designed this fun 3d-printed zoetrope that when lit from the side reveals dancing or walking people. The piece was just on view at the Spiral Independent Creators Festival where it won both the Runner-up Grand Prix and the Audience Award. (via Prosthetic Knowledge)

Urban Allies got a nice little review at Publisher's Weekly last week. It'll be out on July 26 so... if you want to read some really cool crossover fiction, be sure to pre-order. (Easy ordering links to all your favorite sites are available on the Harper Collins site: https://www.harpercollins.com/9780062391346/urban-allies )

Story
Tagline
Bestselling author of the Greywalker novels.
Introduction
I write the Greywalker paranormal detective novels. I grew up as a theater brat and bookworm. Long ago I worked at the Southern California Renaissance Pleasure Fair as an actor and dancer. For pay, I used to work as an editor and I've worked on course development for the Gemological Institute of America, technical documents and sales materials, and magazines for both trade and consumer groups.  I've lived on sail and motor boats and I'm married.  Until a few years ago we had a cat and a pile of ferrets who have since passed on. Currently we are under the furry thumbs of two yeti-hunting hounds: Belladogga Sniffington (pibble) and Jack Pupikins (Lab/bête noir), but I'm still an advocate of California Ferret Legalization.
