SF Tidbits for 11/21/07

  • SFFWorld interviews George R.R. Martin. Here’s GRRM on his steamboat vampire book, Fevre Dream: “The vampire thing just seemed to go with steamboats. There’s something very nineteenth century about both of them. Sort of the dark romanticism.”
  • There is a lot of talk going on ’round the Blogosphere about short fiction lately and I’ve been unable to keep up. Fortunately, Lou Anders is around to offer up a nice summary, and toss in his own informed 2 cents.
  • Sean Williams shows off the covers for his upcoming young adult books The Changeling, The Dust Devils and The Scarecrow.
  • The American Family Association is “is alerting Christians to the potential dangers of The Golden Compass.” [via Better Living Through Science Fiction]
  • Jayme Lynn Blaschke reviews Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium at RevolutionSF. “…Natalie Portman, the geeks’ heartthrob who can be awe-inspiring in one movie and abysmal the next, manages to pull off both in the same role.”
  • A Dribble of Ink offers a two-part interview with various science fiction bloggers (Chris the Book Swede, Graeme’s Fantasy Book Review, The Fantasy Review, Neth Space, Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist, Rob’s Blog o’ Stuff, SciFiChick, Fantasy Book Critic and La Gringa from The Swivet).
  • One for the ladies: Fantasy & Sci-Fi Lovin’ Blog lists The Sexiest Sci-Fi Men Alive.
  • One for the guys who can’t get the ladies: Here’s a list of 645 works of mathematical fiction. [via Grow-a-Brain]
  • Shameless Plug of the Week Thinly Disguised as Trivia: Did you know Joan Collins had a science fiction connection before Star Trek? Check out the Classic Comedy Giants Do SciFi post I guest-blogged over at SciFi Scanner for the scoop.

  1. Anybody else besides me utterly bored by “Golden Compass” the first time reading it? If these folks would drop their crusade, maybe it would fade into obscurity like it deserves to. Yawn.
