Welcome to the Morning Roundup! Every morning we’ll be gathering some cool outside links and highlights from the Tor.com satellite sites for your pre-work perusal. Check out the Facebook portal themselves for even more items of interest.
This morning we’re watching the new Game of Thrones trailer and trying to spot ourselves in the BBC America spot on steampunk!
- Tor.com Science Fiction: The Syfy Channel has just announced its largest original programming lineup ever. Are you excited, dubious or displeased?
- Tor.com Fantasy: A brand new Game of Thrones trailer! Check out all the epic armor and gorgeous scenery.
- Tor.com Urban Fantasy: It seems that the next Narnia movie will not be The Silver Chair, but The Magician’s Nephew instead. Mari Ness just finished her Narnia reread here, if you’re unfamiliar with the books.
- Tor.com Steampunk: BBC America recently aired this steampunk 2011 segment, featuring the Steampunk Stylin’ event at Brooklyn’s Way Station. We should of worn H.M.S. Stubbington shirts! (Note: We should make H.M.S. Stubbington shirts…)
- Tor.com Art Department: Justin Gerard puts together a collage of artistically rendered eyes to help stave off torment over at Muddy Colors.
Stubby the Rocket is the mascot and often random voice of Tor.com. Apparently SyFy’s programming press release is how they tell Stubby that they’re not picking up the pilot for Battlestar Stubby.
