This week on the bookish internet

  • Tom McAllister reposted his “107 Ironclad Rules for Writers Who Want to Bet Better at Writing.” It is hilarious. (His blog)
  • How do you write about modern China, a place that is so strange that journalism reads like dystopian science fiction/thriller? Ning Ken has some ideas. (LitHub)
  • This list of books that fucked us up as kids is highly accurate. I got fucked up by Where the Red Fern Grows when I was a kid. The book still packs a punch. My nephew had to be picked up from school by his grandmother after reading it. (Buzzfeed)
  • Sue Corbett talked to authors who had been disinvited from school events because their books were too controversial. (Publishers’ Weekly)
