Don't Read These Beloved Children's Books To Your Kids

I'm a stay-at-home dad with two kids. My daughter is seven, but before she was old enough to go to preschool, I watched her when she was awake and worked odd hours from home while she slept. My son is two, and we're on the same schedule, except that I've recently joined the jobless recovery, so now it's all toddler,… » 2/09/15 2:50pm 2/09/15 2:50pm

If you're in D.C. tonight, swing by the Dodge City bar at 8:30, where our own Drew Magary will be reading from Someone Could Get Hurt. We can't say it will end with Drew shotgunning beers with you, but we also can't say it won't. » 5/21/14 2:53pm 5/21/14 2:53pm

Fuck Chipotle

Everyone's rightfully goofing on Chipotle today for unveiling a line of cups and bags featuring insta-literature from the likes of Toni Morrison and George Saunders. Now, I have no issue with restaurant chains scrawling stuff on their packaging. Cook Out could post entire passages from Leviticus on their shakes (I'm… » 5/15/14 4:28pm 5/15/14 4:28pm

A Literary and Domestic Incident in the Desert West

Aliens. Spacealiens. No such thing. How theyd fought it out, cosmic mysteries reduced to raw shouting in the uncaring morning. Her leaving in wrath and now returning, straight into the bedroom without him. Rustling and thumps. » 1/08/14 3:18pm 1/08/14 3:18pm

Richard Bachman Will Wear A Stephen King-Inspired Goalie Mask

It's got to suck to be the Dallas Stars' backup goalie. He'll never be the most famous person named Richard Bachman, even though the guy ahead of him isn't actually named Richard Bachman. But he's embracing it, with this new mask from David Gunnarsson, featuring art from The Shining. » 8/20/12 12:40pm 8/20/12 12:40pm

Game Of Thrones Author Says Patriots Are The NFL's Lannisters

We already knew that George R. R. Martin, author of the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, is a Jets fan. (He called the Tebow trade awful, and Tebow the "worst quarterback in the National Football League.") So SI got him on the phone to talk some football. » 6/01/12 10:50am 6/01/12 10:50am

"Bunny-Fucking," "Cockbrisket," And Serial Commas: A Copy Editor's…

Below is the copy editor's style sheet for Nicholson Baker's House of Holes, which The New York Times has called both a "porny Alice in Wonderland" and a "hideously glorious filthfest" (Sam Lipsyte said the latter; Sam Lipsyte would know) and which accomplishes what all great modern literature aspires to: using… » 8/15/11 4:07pm 8/15/11 4:07pm

John Daly's fourth ex-wife has finally written a memoir that the world demanded. It involves booze, whores and/or Hooters girls, gambling and other wholly unexpected wrinkles in the golfer's life narrative. » 3/26/11 11:30am 3/26/11 11:30am

We received an email from Cal Ripken Jr.'s publicity team at Random House, which will release his three-CD audiobook, HOTHEAD, next Tuesday.

Book From Hell

So, by the looks of it, Rick Reilly®'s new book promises to be a thoroughly dignified affair that won't in any way represent another sad step in a once-great sportswriter's descent into self-parody and studied wackiness. That much is evident. » 10/01/09 6:30pm 10/01/09 6:30pm

Rushin Literature

Steve Rushin, the punster who used to write awesome features and dreadful columns for Sports Illustrated, has a novel dropping next year. It's about "a friendly and unassuming lover of clever wordplay and television sports." Steve's really stretching himself. [Amazon] » 10/01/09 12:00pm 10/01/09 12:00pm

Reading Material To Take Your Mind Off The Dale Earnhardt Jr. Thing

I recently become aware of something called the "NASCAR Library Collection." which sounded intriguing. So, what is it, a collection of books on the history of NASCAR, the sport's impact on society, and in-depth biographies of the sport's most interesting figures? » 5/12/07 3:00pm 5/12/07 3:00pm
