-- Meatpaper. "Meatpaper is a print magazine of art and ideas about meat. We like metaphors more than marinating tips. We are your journal of meat culture." I dunno. It's a magazine. About meat.

-- In other periodical news, the publisher of Weekly World News, everybody's favorite fake tabloid to browse in the supermarket checkout (we have to stay on top of reports of alien babies in the White House!) will stop printing the print edition and move to an online-only presence following the August 27 issue.

-- Talking about books we haven't actually read.

-- Vintage Twins: publisher Vintage is pairing old and new classics together. Good idea? Only time will tell, apparently.

-- An interview with Neil Gaiman about the film adaptation of his Stardust, among other things. If you can get past the beginning where it says "breathe" when it means "breath" then it's pretty worthwhile.

-- Saudi chick lit? Oh yes.

-- If you love numbered lists like I love numbered lists (note: I love numbered lists a lot), then you might be interested in The top 10 tales of literary metamorphosis.

-- Though Burmese literature hasn't made it big in the West, it still has a lot to offer.

-- The hot new genre: street lit.

-- Online libraries are changing English literary studies.

-- Dell vs. Shakespeare. Shakespeare wins.
