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.
- A ten second teaser of the Ender’s Game movie trailer has been released! Plus, here’s an interview with Brandon Soo Hoo, who plays Fly Molo.
- Congratulations to Hank Phillippi Ryan, whose novel The Other Woman won the Mary Higgins Clark Award! And congratulations as well to Ralph Peters, whose Cain at Gettysburg won the W. Y. Boyd Literary Award for Excellence in Military Fiction!
- Kotaku brings up the possibility of…an EVE Online tv show. What do you think?

- Author Hilary Davidson chose her favorite independent book stores while out on tour. Did any of your favorites make the list?
- D. B. Jackson, the author of Thieftaker, has set up a fundraiser to benefit the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.
- Over on Tor.com, Emily has been knocking it out of the park lately. Her recent article on the endurance of Lt. Uhura is another great example.
- I’m sure I’m not the only one who found this both disturbing and fascinating: they’ve found evidence of cannibalism at the Jamestown colony.
