I’ll be mostly absent from the internet for the next few days – I’m working odd hours today (4-10PM), then normal hours tomorrow, on Saturday I’m doing Lib Dem leafletting and on Sunday I’ve got to fill out my tax return for the money I earned from writing last year (what money, he said laughing hollowly). And all this while quite seriously ill. I’m going to *try* to get the next MindlessWho post up, but otherwise don’t expect anything before Tuesday or Wednesday.
So here’s some links:

Kristine Rusch on how self-publishers are ignoring readers.
Autism And Empathy on how claims that people with autism have no empathy are a human-rights issue.
Two great posts from Teatime Brutality, on Avengers vs X-Men and Mass Effect. Warning as always with this tumblr that while those posts are safe for work, others on that blog definitely aren’t.
