Greetings programs. We’ve made it to Friday, and here in the office we’ve only made about 25 jokes related to Star Trek: Generations. (Seriously, it’s the gift that keeps on giving.) ANYWAY. Our idea of the Nexus is the weekend. So in order to prepare you for it, here’s a collection of fun off-site links. Highlights include:
1.) A peek into Haruki Murakami’s forthcoming dystopia
2.) Reviews for Spellbound and Spin.
3.) Doc Brown has returned. For a commerical....
4.) A look at what will probably be the most accurate and faithful adpatation of Alexandre Dumas’s most beloved novel, ever filmed. (Also above.)
- Tor.com Steampunk: The Airship Ambassador interviews Gail Carriger
- Tor.com Fantasy: The Civilian Reader gives a big thumbs up to Spellbound by Blake Charlton.
- Tor.com Science Fiction: SF Reviews takes a look at Robert Charles Wilson’s Vortex
- Tor.com Urban Fantasy: More Buffy stuff. This time, an old 1997 ad for the TV show.
From our handy “Of Interest” sidebar:
- New Murakami book has us intrigued
- The bizzare return of Doc Brown
- These scientist t-shirts ROCK!
- This forthcoming Three Musketeers movie has a lot of credibility and literary chops. We are so pumped.
