Links worth sharing I found or compiled in October:
- The Big Idea: Gregory Manchess, Above the Timberline, Illustrator and author Gregory Manchess describes his creative process for his novel “Above the Timberline”. It all started with an intriguing image. Then came some small sketches which he developed into a 300 page novel. He then stripped his novel of all descriptions. “I worked to maintain one overriding theorem: give every page visual impact, but with words to express what a painting cannot say, and images to show what words cannot easily convey.”
- Why we need a 21st-century Martin Luther to challenge the church of tech, an Observer arcticle by John Naughton. A lenghty arcticle about the “church of tech” and Martin Luther finally leads to a homepage with 95 theses about technology. I like the idea. I like some of the theses. I have problems with some theses for example 76 und 94.
- Not Just Another Fantasy Assassin: the Vlad Taltos Novels by Steven Brust, Stefan Raets on his favourite fantasy series.
- Tolkien’s Map and the Perplexing River Systems of Middle-earth, Alex Acks on geological errors in fantasy maps.
