SF Tidbits for 8/27/07
- Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist triple-interviews George R.R. Martin, Gardner Dozois and Daniel Abraham, co-authors of Hunter’s Run, the book-length version of their novella “Shadow Twin” (see SF Signal’s review of the novella).
- From SFX: Geoff Ryman reviews Brain Aldiss’ HARM.
- “Tate Hallaway” looks at writer pseudonyms. “It’s amazing to me how many people who should know better buy into the idea that books survive based on their quality alone.” [via Lyda Morehouse]
- Nick Mamatas shows off the new cover of Under My Roof. Note: No gnomes were harmed in the making of this cover.
- Over at the Guardian, Lee Rourke says Don’t mistake long novels for deep ones. “…how does one produce a slim volume that contains more literary weight per page than most fat, sprawling, literary epics?” [via Mumpsimus]
- It’s a Pulp World has a scan from a 1939 Startling Stories article by Eric Temple Bell (writing as John Taine) called Why Science Fiction.
- David Yuen lists Lesser Known Sci-Fi Films and Miniseries.
- Real Science on the Internet: SciVee is a new video/podcast upload website for scientists.
- Optical Popitude points us to this Uncyclopedia article How to Make Cheesy Sci-Fi.
- Warning: You must be 18 years of age to view the R-Rated Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem trailer. Why the R rating? Probably because the movie is more reminiscent of an early-80’s gore fest than science fiction.
