Added ‘Akira’ to the reading list

I mentioned before that I wanted to add a graphic novel to the reading list. Well, I found one: Akira, by Tatsuhiro Otomo. I’ve heard nothing but good things about it. At 2000+ pages, it’s huge, but I’m beginning to work my way through it. It’s one of the greatest works of graphic novella to come out in recent years, and possible the quintessential Science Fiction work in that category.

I’ll post again once I finish.

Also, added a link to Cassie’s new blog, Oeuvre to the list o’ links. It’s a new blog, and doesn’t really have anything up yet, but Cassie’s a good writer, and I’m sure it’ll fill up with good stuff in no time.
