Some more interesting tidbits from the web:
Andrew Wolter has released the first chapter of his New Mythos novel Seasons in His Abyss here; the novel is due for release in Fall 2012.
Silvia Moreno-Garcia has a very interesting post up called "Two Racists for the Price of One" that discusses Robert E Howard and H P Lovecraft, their beliefs and writing today in the genres these two men helped create. Her and her partner Paula R Stiles also have an amazing new anthology in the works but they need help in funding the project; you can read more about Sword and Mythos here and here, plus the ways you can help give this new project wings.
Also, blogger Jessica Strider of Sci-Fi Fan Letter has a post here that features a very inspirational endcap display that she created at the bookstore she works at, that itself draws inspiration from a series of posts done earlier this year by that prolific bloggess Sarah from Bookworm Blues; as both Jessica and Sarah point out, disabilities in science fiction and fantasy is a very important but under discussed topic. Please take the time to read the posts written by Sarah and seek out the books from Jessica's still growing reading list. You will find it a very enriching experience.
