I finally got to go out for a rollerblade again! My toe twinged a bit when I shoved my foot into the boot of my skate, but it didn't bother me when I was skating and it feels fine now. Hooray!
And it was a beautiful day for a rollerblade, so I am pretty happy.
Anyway, on to the links.
First up, I posted the cover reveal for the next Annorlunda book, a fantasy novella called The Boy Who Was Mistaken for a Fairy King, by HL Fullerton. I am looking for advance readers - sign up if you'd like to be one. I'll send out the eARCs either this weekend or next week.
In other links:
The LA Times story about California's disappearing coast is as good as you've heard.
This article about all of the ways in which our laws prioritize driving is definitely worth your time. It is not long.
If you get confused by the jargon when we're talking about housing for the homeless, this short Voice of San Diego piece will help.
German Lopez at Vox has a nice article summarizing a new book with an evidence-backed proposal for how to reduce urban gun violence even in the absence of changing our gun laws.
Fellow Californians (and folks in other shakey zones): Are you prepared for a quake? Everytime I read one of these articles, I find something new to do to prepare. This time it was that I should buy an extra pair of heavy work gloves and put them in our go bag.
I think my fellow Gen-Xers will enjoy this McSweeney's post about what your favorite 80s band says about you.
Happy weekend, everyone!
