Around the Web: Research before Google, Comic Books and Crime Fiction

15 Nov 2019

Welcome back to Around the Web, dear readers. Once more, I’ve scoured the web for fun content to share with you. This week I’ve got:

 

Pre-Google Questions For Librarians

 

 

Before search engines put information at our fingertips, the library was one of the places to go to get answers. Mental Floss has gathered some strange questions people asked librarians at the New York Public Library before Google.

 

 

 

Starting A Comic

 

Comic artist Melissa Campriglione shared some excellent guidance on starting a comic via Twitter thread. Check it out for tips and resources if you’re looking into getting into the comics game.

 

 

 

When Fiction Materializes IRL

 

 

Author Amber Cowie wrote a death scene in her novel and then six days before her publication date personal tragedy struck in an eerily familiar way. She shares the complicated emotions of this experience and explains the link between writing fear and reality for CrimeReads.

 

 

Teen Detectives

 

 

We might have a soft spot for kid detectives (psst… have you read David Cole’s Math Kids series yet?), so this quiz on teen detectives in fiction is right up our alley.


Did you find anything interesting while online this week? Be sure to share!
