Friday Links (Jonny Quest edition)

Jonny-questJanuary has come and gone. Here we are, at the first Friday in the marvelous month of February. It was a heartbreaking Superbowl, but the possibility of loss is what makes the game exciting. Looking forward to next season!

Anyway, 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:

This link is for part 1 of 3.

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.
