Friday Links (Hair Bear edition)!

Hair_Bear_DVDIt’s Friday! The first Friday in September. It’s a month full of birthdays and anniversaries. Okay, okay, every month is, but September birthdays are extra special, because September babies are superior. It’s a fact. No, really.

Anyway, in honor of this first Friday in the glorious month of September, here is a collection of news and other things that I ran across over the course of the week which struck me as worthy of being shared:

About fontfolly

I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and nonfiction. I used to publish an anthropomorphic sci-fi/space opera literary fanzine. I attend and work on the staff for several anthropormorphics, anime, and science fiction conventions. I live near Seattle with my wonderful husband, still completely amazed that he puts up with me at all.
