Happy Thursday! Ready for your offsite Tor.com links of doom? We thought so. Here’s what we’ve got cooked up.
1.) Pondering if we’ve just coined the term “cybersteam” on accident
2.) Checking in on the foreign language SFF translations awards
3.) Wondering exactly what to call Torchwood: Web of Lies
4.) Prepping for the new season True Blood with recap videos.
