Morning Roundup Time! Every morning we gather some cool outside links and highlights from the Tor.com satellite sites and our handy “Of Interest” sidebar for your pre-work perusal. Check out the Facebook portals themselves—linked below—for even more items that might tickle your fancy.
This morning we’re checking out the British Library and taking bets of the next video game that will hit the big screen.
- Tor.com Fantasy: The two Hobbit movies have their subtitles now—what do you think of them?
- Tor.com Urban Fantasy: There are 27 video games being made into films? 27?!
- Tor.com Steampunk: It may be a little late, but we wish Sir Arthur Conan Doyle a very happy birthday, and direct you to this tribute.
- Tor.com Art Department: It’s sci-fi, but perhaps not as you know. An exhibition in the British Library in London. China Miéville is here to take you on a tour.
- Tor.com Wheel of Time: A special musical tribute—The Day I Met Moraine.
From the “Of Interest” Sidebar:
- Brand new Torchwood footage for all of you!
- This atlas is going to explain what the names of all those places really mean. And the answers might not the ones you were expecting.
- This keyboard is actually a graph. A very cool graph that lets you know exactly how the English language is divided up.
