Friday Links

Nobel-prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman reveals that he wears Flash Gordon underpants. (To avoid disappointment - the pants are metaphorical.)

The BBC talks to China Mieville about his new YA fantasy Railsea. Also, taking his lead from the current weather, he rains on the Olympics.

Neil Gaiman's tribute to his friend Ray Bradbury.

The future of the book, according to New Scientist. Worth a look for the image (positively archaeological, if you believe the doom-mongers) alone.

Philip Ball talks patterns in nature at The New York Institute of the Humanities. (Shame the unused microphone insisted on standing in front of Mr Ball.)

And, finally, some Venus action, courtesy of Mr Adam Roberts.

Enjoy.

Colin.
