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.
- What’s better than Doctor Who? Puppet Doctor Who, of course! And, if you like episode one, check out Episode Two, featuring 10 and 11!
- If you’re not in New York (and willing to wait for hours in line), you probably didn’t get to see the Game of Thrones exhibit. Luckily, Tor.com has a write up – with awesome pictures.
- Carrie Vaughn has revealed the cover for the next Kitty Norville book, Kitty in the Underworld. This one features a were-lioness!
- We’ve launched a Wheel of Time® mobile campaign. Text “EPIC” to 555111 to receive facts, trivia, and more.
