Welcome to the Morning Roundup! Every morning we gather some cool outside links and highlights from the Tor.com satellite sites for your pre-work perusal. Check out the Facebook portal themselves, linked below, for even more items of interest.
This morning we’re playing on iPads and stealing props from the Firefly set. (Not really. But we wish we were.)
- Tor.com Science Fiction: Jewel Staite is just adorable. Really. And likes answering questions in her little blogging space.
- Tor.com Fantasy: It would seem that the iPad’s Sword & Sorcery game is a true crowd-pleaser, no matter how weird it is.
- Tor.com Urban Fantasy: And because we freak out about this occasionally ourselves, take this quiz and find out how well-suited you are to surviving the inevitable zombie uprising.
- Tor.com Steampunk: Jules Verne tech created for Nemo’s Steampunk Art & Invention Gallery in Massachusetts.
- Tor.com Art Department: Illustrator Tyler Jacobson talks about breaking into the art business and his work for D&D.
Stubby the Rocket is the mascot of Tor.com and promises the Tor.com team that they would be able to stop worrying about zombie outbreaks if only they would build Stubby for real.
