The winners of the 2016 Hugo Awards have been announced, celebrating the best in science fiction and fantasy (and then some!) from 2015. So what books and stories are out next from these notable writers?
Fiction and Excerpts 
B&N Blog broke the news earlier this week: Max Gladstone’s Craft Sequence is moving from Tor Books to the Tor.com Publishing imprint! The news came on the crest of a wave of new information following the recent release of Gladstone’s novel Four Roads Cross; information that charts out the future of this epic-sized fantasy series.
The sixth novel in the Craft Sequence is titled Six Feet Over, and will be published by Tor.com Publishing. But what else do we know?
A new, more detailed trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has arrived and it brings an epic scope to this side tale of the Star Wars universe. Take a look.
Star Trek: Discovery show runner Bryan Fuller dropped into the yearly Television Critics Association panel on Wednesday evening and revealed a lot of new details about the forthcoming show, set to debut in January 2017, including that the show will be set only 10 years before the voyages of Kirk and Spock’s Enterprise.
George R. R. Martin recently posted a big, big update on the production of his next big TV series: Wild Cards! The show now has a production company, a show runner, and a rough timeline, but most interestingly of all, George R. R. Martin is soliciting suggestions for which characters YOU, the readers, would like to see first in the show!
Max Gladstone’s fantasy series the Craft Sequence was written and published out of order (scandal!) with Book 3 coming first, followed by Book 2, then Book 5, and so on. Although Gladstone’s books converge into a fantasy series, every book is itself a standalone story taking place in the same world, and a reader can start the series with any book and still get a full experience.
With the first five volumes of the Craft Sequence now out on book shelves, readers can choose their own chronological or anti-chronological voyage through the series. So what order should a reader approach the Craft Sequence in?
It was during the end of Three Parts Dead, with its many reversals and its clash between different and intricate rule-based magic systems, that we both recognized the inner thrill of reading a new Brandon Sanderson story. Except…Three Parts Dead isn’t a Sanderson novel, it’s a Max Gladstone book from a few years back.
Marvel Comics let fly some awesome concept art for Spider-Man: Homecoming after this year’s SDCC panel that confirms the Vulture as the villain for Tom Holland’s first major outing as the amazing web-slinger!
And the answer is WEIRD and just raises more questions. Are you ready to know?
Watch the new trailer for Doctor Strange, the next movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, out on November 4, 2016.
(Oh, and the wifi password is…well, you’ll see.)
Marvel Studios released a tidal wave of new information about its upcoming Phase 3 films, kicking off with some exciting casting announcements for 2018’s Black Panther.
This year’s San Diego Comic Con has brought the DC Cinematic Universe into full color, debuting an intense trailer for Wonder Woman, bringing out the Suicide Squad to taunt the audience, confirming Ben Affleck as the director for the next solo Batman film, and showing us our first, bright look at the Justice League!
The official poster was paired with a sizzle reel of footage shot so far from the film. Check it out below!
Preacher is smack in the middle of its debut season, but that didn’t stop the cast and crew from bringing a new trailer to San Diego Comic-Con that gives us a peek at the end of the season, and, you know, possibly the end of the world. Take a look!
(Does anyone know what kind of Pokemon are spawning near him? It’s booth #1514.)
The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. panel at SDCC didn’t have any new footage to share, but they did have a big reveal for the audience: The upcoming season will feature Ghost Rider!
The motorcycle-riding spirit of vengeance has been hinted at in casting notices and, ah, the sides of trains, and now Marvel’s television arm has officially confirmed the presence of everyone’s favorite flaming skull. Considering how crazy the show got over the course of its third season, Ghost Rider should be a comfortable addition to the continuing calamities of Coulson and company. (Wordplay!)
