Four Links!

By Casey Wilson

  • Amazon has declared that The Hunger Games is the highest-selling series on its site, surpassing even Harry Potter. It’s an interesting read, in part because it places the cause squarely at the feet of increased interest in electronic books.
  • Patrick Ness, author of the Chaos Walking trilogy and A Monster Calls, has a piece in The Guardian about censorship and the internet.
  • There’s a great article up on Tor.com about John Dough and the Cherub, L. Frank Baum’s attempt to write about a character with “no discernible gender at all”.
  • If you, like me, grew up with The Baby-Sitters Club, you’ll probably enjoy this discussion of the series’s legacy.
