Week in review, week ending 1/25/15

For those that are new to my “Week in Review” postings, the following is a list of the blog posts I made over the last week, a few of the posts from people I follow that I thought were pretty good, and then lastly other posts I’ve stumbled into that folks might like to take a look at. Presuming I did it right all links will open new windows/tabs. In case you missed it, here’s last week’s post.

From me this week there was…
On Monday I asked What makes a good character? and Wednesday saw the continuation of the countdown of my five favorite westerns with #3 The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. WordPress ate my Friday post, so that will make an appearance sometime later. I also had a couple posts over on 210Sports.

From the folks I follow…
Blondewritemore has a humorous list of Useful tips on how to survive being married to a blogger. I need to send that link to my wife…
The Talkative Writer (AKA Karen Miller) has a feature called Spotlight on … Terry Pratchett. For some reason I was hesitant to add her posts to my links before. No idea why. Now that I have take some time and look at her older posts. Some great stuff there. (I should add a link to her blog to the menu on the right too).
Drunken Dragon Reviews looks at one of sci-fi’s great books, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick. Classic story that still reads well today.
The Credible Hulk has Comic Book Bios: Barbara Gordon (Batgirl I / Oracle). I have a very nice copy of Detective Comics #359. I’m a huge Carmine Infantino fan.

Some stuff I stumbled into…
Lizzyreadsbooks talks about The authors who write really awesome female characters. Good list there.
OKPotato has Top 5 Female Protagonists: Pantheon Candidates. Check out their #1. My readers will see something familiar.

Links do not indicate an endorsement of the ideas presented, only that I thought the posting was worth taking a look at.
