Welcome to the week in review! Every Friday, we comb through the links and images we found and shared this week, and pull the very best for this post. Consider it concentrated genre goodness from all around the web.
- Brandon Sanderson wrote a lovely letter to Robert Jordan as an exclusive video for Google Play.
- We have another Throwback Thursday post this week! To celebrate the release of Antigoddess, check out this post from Kendare Blake, on Stephen King, books, movies, and the possibility of an Anna Dressed in Blood musical.
- The last couple of weeks have seen some great literary lists come out. My two favorites so far? Nine science fiction inventions that should be real, from The Huffington Post, and nine women who shaped science fiction, from Buzzfeed. Interesting that they’re both lists of nine – I hadn’t noticed that before!
- Have you been on a literary pub crawl? What do you think of events that combine books and booze? I think they could be a lot of fun. Would you prefer something like this, or a more traditional bookstore event?
- My favorite science awards happened not too long ago: the Ig Nobel awards!
