(With apologies to Katherine Dunn....)
At WIRED, via Maude Newton: Lucasfilm has its very own Star Wars continuity cop. (Psst -- has George got the memo yet?)
Also, WIRED gives Neal Stephenson the full-geek love-in in anticipation of his latest novel, Anathem (A). Gee, it's only a mere 960 pages. I'll go on record and give that a better LOC than his thrice-the-length Baroque Cycle (which I've yet to finish).
