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 seen the new trailer for the upcoming Iron Man 3 movie? We admit we’re a little biased – we love super hero movies – but it looks pretty amazing.
- There are rumors in the stamp collecting world that the U.S. Post Office is considering doing sci-fi stamps. What American sci-fi authors would you like to see on a stamp? According to the article, only 5 authors, who have been dead for at least five years, will be honored. A tough choice!
- Capitol Couture has begun released portraits of the characters from Catching Fire. Tor.com has collected the images of Effie, Caesar Flickerman, Haymitch Abernathy, Cinna, and Katniss Everdeen herself.
- Fantasy Cafe has announced that once again, April will be Women in SFF Month.
- Suvudu’s 2013 Cage Match has begun!
- On Far Beyond Reality, you can read an excerpt of Brandon Sanderson’s The Rithmatist. Great Friday afternoon reading!
- Tor.com is starting a technical redesign of their site. Help them identify what features you love, and what could use updating.
- And finally…Tor Books has joined Pinterest! Follow us there to see what fun and geeky things we’re pinning.
