Bookstove.com has a list of Five Good Books About Genre Writing by Actual Authors, which includes The Writer’s Guide to Everyday Life in the Wild West: From 1840-1900 by Candy Moulton.

MUST GET THIS BOOK TO WRITE MORE REALISTIC 3:10 TO YUMA PORN.

Next time I have an Amazon gift certificate, I'm getting the hell outta that book.

I did a fair amount of research for TTBtM, which takes place around the same time period as Yuma, last year and then a little more when I started work on the second draft. Medical care and fashion were my main topics of study, since my main characters are most interested in those subjects. I think I avoided any major anachronisms or snafus in general; we'll see what my writers group has to say.

Here's another interesting link about writing: Villains vs. antagonists by Marie Brennan.

I want to go to Comic Con, goddammit! Neca's selling a limited edition Coraline doll dressed in her star sweater and kick-ass blue shoes. DO WANT.

AND Neil Gaiman and Henry Selick will be there: "Visionary director and screenwriter Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas) and Newbery Medal-winning author Neil Gaiman discuss the making of the LAIKA/Focus Features 2009 breakout animated hit film Coraline. In celebration of Universal Studio's Blu-ray Hi-Def and DVD release of the critically acclaimed stop-motion film, Selick and Gaiman will be joined by lead animator and LAIKA CEO/president Travis Knight, producer Bill Mechanic (CEO of Pandemonium and producer of Dark Water and The New World), character fabrication supervisor Georgina Hayns (Corpse Bride), and voice talent Keith David (Crash). Panelists will offer an in-depth, behind-the-scenes glimpse at how this astonishing and suspenseful adventure—the first stop-motion animated feature originally produced in stereoscopic 3D—was painstakingly brought to life. The panel will be moderated by IGN movies/DVD editor-in-chief Eric Moro. A one hour signing by Gaiman will follow."

STUPID SAN DIEGO. Why do you have to be on the other side of the country?
