more evidence that Nathan Fillion is awesome (not that you needed any) (and other adventures in social networking)

What my followers on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ saw today:
• Corporate publishers are *terrified* of the new ease of self-publishing… Random House + Penguin: What the Merger Means for Publishers, Authors, Readers

• The problem isn’t that our slow-apocalypse-in-progress isn’t cinematic. It’s that it doesn’t make for the kind of movies Hollywood likes today. It did once like them: see *Soylent Green,* for instance. (Hollywood wouldn’t make such a movie today, though it might be an AMC Original Series.) Hurricane Sandy Was the Attack on NYC that Blockbusters Never Prepared Us For

• Give this guy a Major Award! This Costume Wins Halloween

• Another fantastic Halloween costume, this one for a father-baby team… Man and his baby daughter dress as a Powerloader from Aliens; entire world can’t high-five enough in response.

• More evidence that Nathan Fillion is awesome (not that you needed any): Captain Canada.

Corporate publishers are *terrified* of the new ease of self-publishing

You think so? Why? Have you read much of the self published stuff you there? This stuff beats Sturgeon’s Law: 99% of it is crap. That’s what corporate publishing still does, and will continue to do in the foreseeable  future. They clear out the slush pile so we don’t have to. Self publishing has nothing to do with it. Random House and Penguin aren’t merging because of a (real or perceived) shortage of authors. They’re consolidating due to a (very real) declining pool of readers.
