Friday! Let us celebrate the end of the work week with this illustration of the Fifth Doctor bursting from his TARDIS onto a rainbow landscape. And also spending some idle time looking at cool SFF related links.
(Lovely 5th Doctor Art by “October” from Deviant Art)
- So, really when did the first Mario Bros game actually come out?
- Rockets found underwater!
- Latest Star Trek: Phase II fan project shut down by CBS.
Every day Stubby the Rocket jets around the internet looking for links of interest. When Stubby finds these links, they get put in our handy Links of Interest section and sometimes on our Twitter and Facebook! Sometimes Stubby creates an extra section in Morning Roundup for the stuff Stubby knows you crave. Here’s today’s selection:
- Ridley Scott explains why Prometheus is rated R. Is it because it’s hard SF?
- The strange case of not knowing exactly when Mario Brothers was first released in the United States.
- A Hunger Games wedding has happened (we think).
- There is a full-on debate happening on The New York Times site all about who should read YA literature. (Lev Grossman is throwing in his hat too!)
A nice list of modern day retellings of classic fairy tales in book form.
- These minimalist Doctor Who posters will have you saying “Geronimo!”
- Hutcherson spills the beans about hanging out with Suzanne Collins.
- More Batman! The first image from the new CG Batman animated series on Cartoon Network.
- Primeval now has a spin-off which is also a continuation of the series, and is being written by Trek alums Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens.
- The short list for the Clarke Award has been released.
- Jenna-Louis Coleman talks about her sercet codename during the audition process on Doctor Who.
- Latest Star Trek: Phase II project shut down by CBS.
- Jeff Bezos has found the Apollo 11 rocket engines in the ocean.
