Tropic of Serpents

  • We’ve gotten in Todd Lockwood’s cover art for Tropic of Serpents, by Marie Brennan, and it’s just gorgeous. So Tor.com decided to make some free wallpaper for anyone who wants to download it!
  • There’s a new Humble eBook Bundle! The bundle includes Little Brother by Cory Doctorow, Boneshaker by Cherie Priest, Spin by Robert Charles Wilson, and more!
  • Author Jay Lake has been dealing with cancer and the fact that he’s dying. And he’s doing it his own way, by hosting his own funeral before he dies. JayWake will be held on July 27th. See the link for more details.
  • We knew Robert Jordan was a fan of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series. Apparently, he was enough of a fan to request a signed copy from Martin’s editor. There’s some fun commentary about series length in there.
  • Last but definitely not least, will you be at San Diego Comic-Con? Come say hi!
