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.
- Via Dragonmount, some fun re-imaginings of the wardrobes of Wheel of Time characters from a fashion blogger. Some are spot on (like all three of our ta’veren boys), but others are a bit off. What do you think?
- Tor.com has some really exciting news: Ann VanderMeer has joined the site as a Consulting Fiction Editor.
- The Huffington Post picked their favorite apocalyptic titles, including Brian Evenson’s Immobility!
- Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, died this weekend. RIP, Mr. Armstrong. You will be missed.
- The blog For Books’ Sake has a great two part list of the best women writers of fantasy fiction. The list includes authors like Ursula K. LeGuin, Elizabeth Bear, Robin Hobb, and many more. Who do you think is missing?
- The next season of Doctor Who starts this weekend! In celebration, Tor.com looks at the patterns behind the Doctor’s regenerations, from one to eleven.
- Speaking of Doctor Who, have you been watching the Pond Life, the mini-series introducing season seven? Delightful!
- A fun (if incorrect) Sandworm Size Chart!
