Re: “Small Town, Small Station, Big Signal: How Hillsborough's WHUP-FM Has Become One of the Triangle's Best Experiments

Fantastic article. Carrboro/Chapel Hill's also got WCOM, a community-oriented low power FM station, with some open time slots if you have an idea for a show and an interest in learning.

Re: “The INDY Audiobooks Poll: Triangle fiction writers talk reading technology

Here's a link to that sample of Dhalgren, via an unetied recording session from narrator Stefan Rudnicki. It includes a picture of a page from the book, which should demonstrate why this is in quite the undertaking to translate into audio:…

Re: “As big chains fold, Triangle indie bookstores thrive on the personal touch

Fantastic coverage of the great bookstores we have here. And totally awesome that Gibson is coming back to Durham for his new book!

Between now and the fall, some more excellent goings-on for bookish folks: Lev Grossman (Thursday Aug 28), John Scalzi (Aug 28 and Aug 29), Stuart Rojstaczer (Sep 11), Kim Harrison (Sep 12), John Darnielle (Sep 18 and 22), ...

Re: “Turning leaves: a guide to this fall's reading

There's more than a few of the ones I've got on my own wishlist: David Eggers' The Circle ( McSweeney's), Stephen King's Doctor Sleep, and Nancy Farmer's The Lord of Opium. It is missing :) however, some others, among others which would be a list too long to take a minute to type up: Margaret Atwood's MaddAddam, Kim Stanley Robinson's Shaman, and Tad Williams' Happy Hour in Hell (all three out today actually); Nick Mamatas' Love is the Law; Kate Maruvama's Harrowgate; Scott Lynch's The Republic of Thieves; Jeff VanderMeer's Wonderbook; METAtropolis: Green Space; Tina Connolly's Copperhead; Cherie Priest's Fiddlehead; Lavie Tidhar's The Violent Century; Leena Krohn's Datura; Nicola Griffith's Hild; and Durham author Nathan Kotecki's follow-on to The Suburban Strange, Pull Down the Night. It's hard not to just keep running on with more books but, well, there's time and space and this comment box.
