And a few more links:

1. Book publisher Elsevier was caught offering $25 Amazon gift cards to professors who gave the book five-star reviews on Amazon. They now call the offer a "mistake." Via.

2. Neal Stephenson's next novel will be a thriller called REAMDE. Also, his first two novels, which were written under the pseudonym Stephen Bury, was cowritten with his uncle, George Jewsbury. Both of those Stephen Bury books are pretty good, by the way. Via.

3. "Chinese Navy Amphibious Female Scouts." These ladies will leap out of the water like dolphins and destroy you. Via.
