  • Orwell's diary entry from December 29, 1940: From a newspaper account of a raid (not ironical): “Bombs were falling like manna”.
  • "Mash-up experts Quirk Books will release The Meowmorphosis in May. The book will tackle Franz Kafka‘s classic about a man who wakes up as a giant bug. The hero of the The Metamorphosis mash-up will wake up as “an adorable kitten” instead."

    Get it? GET IT??

  • "What is figment? Figment is a community where you can share your writing, connect with other readers, and discover new stories and authors. Whatever you're into, from sonnets to mysteries, from sci-fi stories to cell phone novels, you can find it all here."

    Looks like tasty writing fun. Got this tip from Kathy Erskine via Facebook.
