Morning Bites: Letters from Gorey, in defense defense of baseball novels, Sigur Rós, and more

The hand drawn envelopes of Edward Gorey.

  • Asking about the future of science fiction writing…in 1971.
  • Mike Doherty at Salon defends baseball novels even though they net the writers $665,000 advances.  (You could just hire a private security team with that sort of money.)
  • Celebrating old(e) English embroidery at Yale.
  • Some live Sigur Rós will do you good if you plan to hibernate this weekend.
