I've got some deadlines coming up end of this month and into the beginning of March, and so will be pretty scarce around here for a while. So it seems like a good idea to do something I've been meaning to do for some time now-- point out a handful of blogs and websites that I really enjoy, and that will no doubt keep you well-entertained.
Probably my favorite blog these days is Cullen Gallagher's Pulp Serenade. Well-written and insightful posts about pulp fiction from a man who knows what he's talking about.
Achilles Girl in Action Land is dedicated to Asian cinema, and has lots of flair and wit.
The Weird West Emporium is exactly what it sounds like. Great stuff.
FlickChick's A Person in the Dark is a well-informed, affectionate site dedicated to old movies of every genre. Her love of film is infectious.
If you grew up reading comics in the '70's, or have any interest in the sordid history of comics, Diversions of the Groovy Kind is huge fun.
Kimmy Dee's Turd Mountain is crass and rude and never fails to make me laugh out loud.
Benoit Lelievre's Dead End Follies is a sharp, opinionated blog focused on book and movie reviews. You may not always agree with him, but he's bold in his assessments.
Charlie Williams is one of my favorite writers currently working, and his blog is always fun and interesting.
Ditto Ray Banks. Banks has the uncanny knack of writing posts that reflect things I also happened to be thinking about, but doing it much better than I ever could. The Saturday Boy is always one of the first blogs I look at.
And that'll do for now, I reckon. I realize these blogs reflect my own personal interests (old crime fiction paperback originals, comic books, old movies, toilet humor) but I suspect you'll enjoy them as well.
