Things of Interest Over the Past Few Days

Phoenix is about to land on Mars, where it’s going to look for evidence of life.

New York Magazine‘s Vulture blog takes an interest in Philip K. Dick’s late-50s literary novels.

And the following list of Favorite Obscure Books, courtesy of the Village Voice. I’ve only read two of them: Fup and Gob’s Grief. Both are excellent.

On a gloomier note, the depressing influence of Time Warner over the post office, and its effect on small literary magazines, is briefly post-mortemed (is that a word?) here.
