Some stuff I’ve recently come across:
Intriguing piece by Greg Rucka at Io9 on his writing strong female characters in his work.
Wes Enzinna has a powerful article at the New York Times Sunday Magazine about Treece Kansas, a now abandoned mining town. I’m really fascinated by areas and towns that have been destroyed through such extremem environmental and economic degradation. I suspect I’ll be writing more on them in the future.
An older story about the salt mines under Detroit at Environmental Graffiti.
Rob Lammie goes in depth into the Animaniacs over at Mental Floss.
