Going Viral

John has started what we like to call a phenomenon. He has started a post which has gone viral. This meme was picked up by SF Signal and GalleyCat, among dozens of others.

Here is the latest list from John's post, along with his instructions:

"My list of fantasy and sf book reviewers is woefully out of date. I need your help to fix that. But rather than go through the hassle of having you send me recommendations or sticking them in comments, what you can do is take the following list and stick it on your website, then add yourself to the list, preferably in alphabetical order. That way, I will be able to track it across the web from back links, and can add each new blog to my roll as it comes along. So take this list, add it to your blog, and add a link to your blog on it. If you are already on the list, repost this meme at your blog so others can see it, and find new blogs from the links others put up on their blogs. Everybody wins! Be sure to send the list around to others as well. There is an easy to copy window of all the links and text at the bottom of this post to make it even simpler to do."

Go back to his original post to get the links out of his text box. It will be more up-to-date than this list.

I thought about adding some blogs that I knew, but I knew it would be so much easier for everyone to grab the updated links off of John's post. I don't know how to embed a table like he did, or even if you can do such a thing on Blogger. Without lots of HTML code, that is.
