Friday Links!

This is a brilliant story to lead off with: The search for Jackie Wallace. And another one: Watch how 19th-century Genaille-Lucas calculating rulers work.

From Sebastian Morgan-Lynch, and this is a terrific article about very weighty things: Don’t fear failure: Why quitting gymnastics taught me the true meaning of success.

From DQ Reader My Wife, and this is fascinating: The Man Who Saw Inside Himself.

From Wally, and this is a great read: 13 writers who grew to hate their own books. This is so, so good: The Star Wars Posters of Soviet Europe. This is absolutely amazing: Instead of Filling Cavities, Dentists May Soon Regenerate Teeth. This is worth reading:  Ten Myths of Gettysburg.

From Ken Piper, and this is excellent: Of grimoires and glyphs: the history behind RPG magic.

From C. Lee, and ah, Finland: Finnish broadcaster targets youth vote with anime-inspired video.This is very, very thoughtful: Life’s stresses often sink me. Here’s how I decided to change that.

From Jeremy, and I really enjoyed this game (back in the day): The Faery Tale Adventure: A personal history. Also, and this is absolutely fantastic (it's an entire book): The CPRG Book Project: Sharing the history of computer role-playing games.
