Linkitudes

So many links, so little time.

An English teacher's wet dream: George Orwell hath a blog. His diaries are being published in "real" time, beginning with August 9, 1938/August 9, 2008 and will go on until 2020. They are annotated, too, just to add to the delight. I keep hoping some day someone will do this with Virginia Woolf...

To publicize the reissue of Gentleman Jim, there is an interview with Raymond Briggs in the Observer. He sounds just like the characters in his books (even Fungus).

For your viewing pleasure: just a beautiful website.

And this has been sitting in my delicious links for a while: The Little Professor posts on The Practical Applications of Gothic Fiction.

Am most amused by the Gothic Fiction link. My sister and, whenever we watch movies or tv, always end up demanding of the characters "Haven't you ever seen Scooby-Doo? Because if you had, you'd know not to go in threre!" or similar.

A wonderful set of links. The practical advice gleaned from Gothic fiction is just hilarious.

Jonathan Yuen's website reminded me of the experimental fiction/art sites I've found (probably through LJ, though I can't be sure, now):
Dreaming Methods
Born Magazine

Oh, and some kind person has already created an LJ feed: orwelldiaries.
