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 final book of the Wheel of Time, A Memory of Light, is off to the bindary! (Image via Patty Garcia.)
- We’re also excited to announce Brandon Sanderson’s tour for A Memory of Light! Check out Tor.com for initial dates, plus the ones that include Harriet McDougal.
- Planning on attending one of the event dates for the A Memory of Light tour? Why not apply to be a Memory Keeper? You can help out with the event and get to spend extra time with Brandon!
- Locus Magazine wants to know your opinion on the best novels and short fiction of the 20th and 21st centuries! It’s a tall order. What do you think should make the cut? (Found via io9 and Whatever.)
- The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997) is now online. Fair warning: it’s as addiction and time-consuming as TV Tropes.
- Happy birthday, Madeleine L’Engle! Your books, especially A Wrinkle in Time, are a childhood staple. They helped me discover genre fiction, and I imagine they did the same for many, many others.
- One final Wheel of Time note. If you’re hating the wait for January 8th, sign up at Tor.com to receive daily snippets from A Memory of Light. Then join us on the spoiler thread for endless discussion and speculation!
