SciAm's run a fascinating excerpt from Kevin Dutton's book The Wisdom of Psychopaths: What Saints, Spies, and Serial Killers Can Teach Us about Success that's well worth a read. I'll certainly be picking this one up.

It's the literary equivalent to the neighborhood lemonade stand - Little Free Library will sell you (or show you how to build) a small post-mounted honor library that you can set up in your front yard and share works with your neighbors. Very very cool.

The story is by Philip K. Dick, the legendary flipped-out weirdo and science fiction author whose books have been endlessly adapted into films. Everyone knows Blade Runner, based on his novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? What most people don't know is that the late Philip K. Dick has been reincarnated. As an android.

I was in a supermarket recently searching for a brown mustard-and-conditioner in one. It was while I was reading the ingredient label on a jar of Gouldens Dry Scalp Formula that I looked to the children's book rack and there spied the title "My Little Golden Book About God." For the safety of our race (if any still remain) I have translated this book in the hopes that a resistance may arise. Read the baby powder-scented Final Solution of our enemies from beyond, otherwise known as: My Little Golden Book About Zogg.

There are lots of ways to mark the passage of time, but none as unusual as seeing what common household objects find their way up a person's innards.
Enjoy a brief perusal through this 11 photo gallery.

That's what Susan Andersen's novel Baby, I'm Yours was supposed to say. Thanks to a typo, it says something subtly yet drastically different.

The Republic high school in Missouri recently banned a couple of books, one of which was Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut. The Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library responds by giving a free copy to any Republic student who asks.

You'd think that well-respected authors would be an eloquent, friendly bunch... and you'd be wrong. When they start talking about each other, authors can get downright catty.

I've never heard of Chip Zdarsky nor read his works - but based upon this single page I think I need to look him up in the library. I'm assuming not in the 'Teen Lit' section, as it's certainly NSFW.

Shed's a struggling author - he poured his heart and soul into an autobiographical self-help book for 5 years, then spent another 2 years getting it published... and it tanked.

Now, he's finally cracked Amazon's top lists with his latest book. This is noteworthy because his latest book is totally blank.

One thing I love is a good end-of-the-world story. I've read and enjoyed a lot of them, and many are on this list... including my personal favorite, Lucifer's Hammer.

While most are familiar with Roald Dahl through his timeless classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, his life was consumed with far more than just childrens stories.
