Web Round-Up

  • SciFiGuy and SciFiChick are offering copies of Suzanne Collins’ Catching Fire, the follow-up to The Hunger Games—but hurry! Today is the last day of both giveaways.

  • Tonight (9/15) at 7:00pm EST, Acacia and Other Lands author David Anthony Durham will be chatting live on Suvudu. Their last live chat with China Mieville was a lot of fun, so I’m looking forward to this one. (via Colleen Lindsay)

  • These rare photos from the Star Wars set are hilarious! Look how he’s bugging her, they’re clearly siblings….either that or he’s a nine-year-old with a crush….uh oh.

  • Things even Neil Gaiman didn’t know about Neil Gaiman, like, he totally “once wrote a Nebula-winning story using only the middle row of his keyboard.”

  • Longmire retitles romance novels—and a couple of fantasies—according to their cover images. Ah, how fondly I remember For the Love of Scottie McMullet…

  • The Lies of Locke Lamora author Scott Lynch is serializing a new science fiction project, Queen of the Iron Sands, for free on his website. Hooray for seeing another side of Scott Lynch, and for something to tide us over until Republic of Thieves comes out. (via Speculative Horizons)

  • Art out of toilet paper rolls! These amazing faces remind me of the door-knockers in The Labyrinth and the Helping Hands that form faces when Sarah is falling down the oubliette. Right?!

  • Television Without Pity asks the, ahem, immortal question, what if every vampire had a diary? Lestat writes, “Dear Diary, AAAAAHHHH! I AM ON FIRE!”
