Inkwell Irregulars, Assemble!

Here's an easy post: A list of links to bookish blog posts made by our Inkwell Irregulars. Not only does it save me the time of sorting through an unwieldy assembly of AP articles featuring the words 'book,' 'publisher,' and 'bookstore,' it links you (our beloved blog reader) to them (our other beloved blog readers). Incestuous? Sort of. But this is a cult -- that sort of thing is par for the course.

WildEve has photos of the outside of Louisa May Alcott's house. (Wait, does that sound stalker-ish?)

Pol Culture reviews Alan Moore's entire run of Swamp Thing, providing my all-time favorite analysis and assessment of my all-time favorite comic.

Liyana is a part of the Royal Reviews online collective, a group of obsessive YA readers posting thoughtful, humorous, and sometimes scathing reviews on an almost daily basis. (Psst, Liyana -- hook us up with some reviews, too!)

I featured A Journey Round My Skull's f-f-f-freaky covers to an old German SF magazine last week, but I could just as easily post a link to them every day. They've collected some of the world's coolest classic book covers, and really should be a part of your daily blog roll.

John does an autobiographical web comic called Sorry. The drawing style is decidedly indie (always a good thing!), and his shades-of-blue color palette couldn't be more fitting. His most recent strip is about a family friend who committed suicide, and he's also got comics about ex-girlfriends, sleazy guy friends, and the inevitable cruelty of blind date reveals.

Oh, and if you'd like to join our slowly expanding band of backwoods, book-loving belligerents, click here. All we ask is your life-long devotion, adoration, and a firstborn or two.
