Speaking of Lost, if you liked catvalente's recap earlier this week, you should know about an LJ-only Christmas discount for her novel The Labyrinth. I snuck back to her journal and found the entry where she mentions this: "The deal is this: Wildside Press is offering copies of The Labyrinth complete with signed bookplates for $25, with no shipping charges. Just go to the Wildside Press site, order normally, and when you check out, enter VALENTE165 where it asks for coupons. Easy as that." The book itself has gotten great reviews--I haven't gotten to read it yet, but I remember reading on her journal that it was named Most Neglected Book of the Year, so you can get a copy and feel all cutting-edge.
And finally: queryletters.blogspot.com makes me weep tears of laughter... or does it? Make sure you scroll down for the movie pitch titled Deerly Beloved.
