Mostly Harmless and Another Thing...

A couple of pan-galactic and large-hearted links for you today, readers:

From the "I never could get the hang of Thursdays" department, Eoin Colfer will write the sixth volume of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy trilogy and will also, almost certainly, be unfairly maligned by readers for being named Eoin Colfer and not Douglas Adams, but that's not really his fault is it? Let's put the blame where it really belongs people, on Eoin's parents.

That said, Largehearted boy has blogged Esquire's 75 books Every Man Should Read, a list that has neither Eoin Colfer or Douglas Adams on it. You will find such manly luminaries as Roth, Cheever, London, and Saunders on it, though. Even foreign men like Murakami make an appearance. Not too many women, though. One, to be exact. Flannery O'Connnor, who Barry Hannah has admitted he thought to be a man for many years. Head here, for the whole thing in slideshow-style.
