Good morning folks, hope you got more sleep than me! I had a busy night of mild hell-raising with some folks several years my junior (and you guys do this every night?). Here’s your morning cuppa.
- Long-time Chaosium contributor and co-creator of Call of Cthulhu, Lynn Willis passed away yesterday.
- John Scalzi waxes on the end of Red Shirts hardcover print run and the scifi genre in general.
- The Beeb covers Jim Hines’ ongoing recreations of classic genre book covers. “The way women are portrayed is just so ridiculous, so often, you just stop seeing it,” Hines says.
- A large excerpt of Hugh Howey’s Wool is available for free on Tor.com
I knew that probe droid I saw in the garden this morning was a bad sign. Stand by ion control. pic.twitter.com/3nbcpvnY
