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.
- San Diego Comic-Con is here! We’re following all the news coming out of San Diego pretty closely, and are extremely jealous of everyone there (especially our fellow Tor staffers!). If you’re not there either, you may have missed the above video, and it’s totally worth watching – it features George R.R. Martin and Neil Gaiman being awesome.
- Happy birthday, Tor.com! For their fifth birthday, Tor.com is offering a massive (and massively awesome) free download of five years of stories, five new stories, and a fifth birthday sweepstakes!
- Over on LitReactor, Ben Umstead has a great article about where we read, and why we read there. What’s your favorite place to read?
- More news out of SDCC: looks like Firefly may become an MMO. Plus: Hailee Steinfeld has awesome nerdy nails.
- There’s a new Ender’s Game video from SDCC, featuring Harrison Ford welcoming recruits to Battle School. Would you go, given the chance?
- Last but definitely not least, if you’re at San Diego Comic-Con, come say hi!
