- The L.A. Times shines a light on author Conn Iggulden’s historical fiction, which pretty much sounds like the sort of material you’d expect the co-author of The Dangerous Book For Boys to write.
- The L.A. Times also spotlights an interesting trend: television viewers reading the books that influenced their favourite TV shows. (This Quillblogger read Atlas Shrugged, which inspired the video game Bioshock, for similar reasons.)
- The Guardian blogger Judith Flanders on why Nicholas Hughes’ death made headlines for all the wrong reasons.
- William Zinsser on writing and updating his landmark guide, On Writing Well, for 35 years and counting.
