Holy Cows | Christopher Priest, author
An excellent post by Priest on lists, and canons, and why you sometimes share your own. Also, strikingly, so much of this is the sf I have grown to love as an adult - the Le Guin, the Pohl, the Dick, and especially the Roberts. You make the list to stop it becoming sacred.

Ursula K. Le Guin | VICE
An unexpected place for a Le Guin interview, but it's great nontheless.

Short story: Covehithe by China Miéville | Books |
Marvellous. Can't say any more - you need to read this (very) short story - but it's really, really lovely: shivers down the spine, and something heartwarming, all at once. And: set in a slightly magical part of the world.

An Alternate History of Chinese Science Fiction - No Fear of the Future
Quite remarkable; alternate-history of SF as if it were all written by Chinese authors. Inventive, witty, deft.
