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 creating our own office zombies and checking out some wicked 3D art.
- Tor.com Fantasy: Courtney Schafer talks about the difference between series and standalone novels.
- Tor.com Urban Fantasy: The Walking Dead’s guide to creating a zombie.
- Tor.com Steampunk: The new Pinocchio film is shaping up, and here’s a model of the little wooden boy to prove it.
- Tor.com Art Department: OpenEnded Group are presenting their 3D works in Lincoln Center.
- Tor.com Wheel of Time: If you’re in France, Brandon Sanderson will be there signing books!
From the “Of Interest” Sidebar:
- See what spring was like on Jupiter and Mars before they formed into the planets we know.
- Junot Diaz with a fascinating essay on what disasters reveal about us.
- Darth Vader as played by the Governator. (NSFW language.) We are astounded that this casting choice never crossed George Lucas’ mind.
