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 Wall

  • The Lands of Ice and Fire publishes next week, and as a teaser, they’ve released some beautiful, official maps from Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series.
  • October’s almost over, which means January’s almost here. For those Wheel of Time fans having trouble waiting for the January 8 publication of A Memory of Light, Tor.com has you covered: you can now listen to the audio version of Chapter Two, “The Choice of an Ajah.”
  • Great news from NPR: the Facebook generation is reading. Not only that, but they’re using libraries in huge numbers!
  • Have you seen the award-winning short film Afghan? Inspired by a real life racist act post-9/11, it tells the story of a victim of a hate crime forced to look for humor in a terrible situation. Well worth the time.

And, just to make Friday that much sweeter, here’s a list of sweepstakes and sales we have going on!
