The 2012 Nebula Award winners have been announced by The Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America in San Jose, California this weekend. Today is event registration day for Gen Con! I’m debating doing another year of heavy writer’s workshops or trying to intersperse some games in as well.
- A new Skiffy and Fanty with an interview with Ack, Ack, Macaque author, Gareth L. Powell. He talks monkeys with guns, smoking cigars… that already should be enough to get you to listen.
- Felicity Savage looks at the novels of Stephen Baxter while examining the question, “are there too many of us?”
- You don’t have the right to sell your books (or your car, or your MP3 player, or your washing machine). The odd case that the U.S. Second Court is deciding right now.
- io9 has a new trailer for Knights of Badassdom featuring Peter Dinklage, Danny Pudi and a surprising list of other stars. It looks like it could cut either way on the good-bad scale.
- Charlie Stross is coming out with a new trilogy in the Merchant Princes universe, with Tor.
