Links & HiJinks: New Roald Dahl, Duchovny…and Gaga’s (still) a Man?

Just some things I came across this week on the Internets that I found funny or interesting:

  • {New Roald Dahl?}: I love Dahl‘s stuff; Charlie and the Chocolate Factory‘s one the books that made me wanna be a writer; many of his brilliant short stories (which I found later) almost made me want to give up the craft. But I remained completely in thrall to Dahl’s mix of the mundane and the fantastic, and his way with unexpected twists of character and plot made me a fan for life. Now, in honor of Roald Dahl month (September 13—I also loved that he was a Virgo, like me), Penguin is publishing some “splendiferous” secrets of the great writer! Click here for more…

  • {Duchovny! Live!}: Californication stud David Duchovny‘s about to make his NY stage debut in Break of Noon, a new off-Broadway play by Neil LaBute, which, I think, is completely appropriate for Duchovny’s smarter-than-us, sorta-above-it-all acting style—not that there’s anything wrong with it; believe me, I’m a fan. Opening in October, more of the story here
  • {Gaga Goes Guyville?}: A site is reporting that Lady Gaga—the greatest pop star of the moment…Yeah, I said it!—is posing as a guy in a new fashion spread in Vogue Hommes Japan…If it’s not her, she’s definitely got a fraternal twin somewhere in the fashion community…See the pics and read the tale here
  • {On the Cover}: I’ve been recently dealing with some issues around the cover of my novel which comes out next summer. And probably because of that I’ve been paying even more attention lately to the covers of recent novels, just to see what’s out there, what’s working, what’s not working, etc…Came across the following cover and my mind exploded. How great is this:

Clean, evocative, a little scary, definitely catches one’s eye…to find out more about the book, click here
