SF Tidbits for 1/23/07
- Stainless Steel Droppings profiles classic sf artists John Berkey and John Harris. [via The Art Department]
- Lady in the Water and BloodRayne are among the Golden Raspberry nominees “celebrating” the worst in filmmaking.
- A.R.Yngve points us to Philip Pullman’s Carnegie Medal acceptance speech which contains such witticisms as “We need stories so much that we’re even willing to read bad books to get them, if the good books won’t supply them.”
- The inventor of a military exo-skeleton is looking for buyers. [via Gravity Lens]
- An interesting read from the British blog SF Diplomat: Thoughts on SF Criticism, Technology and Accessibility. “By locking itself away behind the walls of an anachronistic business plan, SF criticism is not only making itself less accessible to people who might have something to contribute to it, it’s also making itself less and less relevant to the experience of reading SF.” Anyone up for a course in sf criticism?
