Over at, Jo Walton has recently been reviewing one of my favorite series: Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan saga. (Check out the comments threads for responses from Bujold.) If you're curious, here are the links (she reviewed in publication order): Shards of Honor, Warrior's Apprentice, Borders of Infinity, Brothers in Arms, The Vor Game, Barrayar, Mirror Dance, Cetaganda, Memory, Komarr, A Civil Campaign, Diplomatic Immunity, and the series overview. I'm feeling the need to re-read them now. Follow-up: She later added a review of Winterfair Gifts and an interview with Lois McMaster Bujold.

The Colo(u)r of Magic will be released on dvd in July.

If you liked the classic TV Guide description of the Wizard of Oz ("Girl journeys to psychedelic landscape, kills first person she meets then teams up with others to kill again"), then check out the Uncomfortable Plot Summaries at

Zap2It has "Up-isodes" to tease us or tide us over until the new Pixar movie.
