The Week in Review
Welcome to the week in review! Every Friday, we comb through the links and images we found and shared this week, and pull the very best for this post. Consider it concentrated genre goodness from all around the web.
- Have you read the prologue of A Memory of Light yet? If so, come join us on the spoiler thread on Tor.com!

- Of all the pictures the Curiosity Rover has sent back, these might be my favorite. A solar eclipse from Mars.
- John Scalzi fulfils a promise to Twitter by allowing himself to be covered in frosting by roller derby girls on Neil Gaiman’s front lawn. Yes, sometimes dreams do come true.
- I love geeky crafts, don’t you? These are some fantastically geeky Dalek wedding cakes.
