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.
- The Hugo Awards were announced this weekend! Congratulations to everyone who won, including Jo Walton, the author of Among Others.
- How does it feel to win a Hugo? John DeNardo talks about it on his Hugo-winning fan site, SF Signal.
- And, in one last piece of Hugo news, if you were watching the awards streaming online when they got cut off, you’ll be able to watch the full ceremony this weekend.
- In Wheel of Time news, if you pre-order the audiobook of A Memory of Light on CD, you can also get this really nifty iPhone case!
- Blog io9 has posted their list of the most exciting sf/f titles coming out this month. What are you most looking forward to?
- Continuing their series of Wheel of Time ebook wallpapers, this month Tor.com is featuring the cover of Crossroads of Twilight.
- Here’s a fun list of 10 epic love stories in science fiction. What do you think is missing? Add it to the list our fans have already started on our Facebook page!
- Thought toothbrushes were only good for cleaning your teeth (or the bathtub)? Think again. Astronauts used a toothbrush to fix the International Space Station.
- Will it be as popular as Smallville? Either way, we’re excited to watch as the CW attempts to reboot Wonder Woman!
