  • Whether you’re excited for 47 Ronin or not, you have to admit this first clip looks pretty amazing. Turning a man’s hate into a physical, terrifyingly huge spider? Shudder.
  • I’ve been looking forward to Fox’s Almost Human for a while now, and it’s finally here. I thought it was pretty great. Will you be watching?

Book Trailer: Watcher of the Dark by Joseph Nassise

Watcher of the Dark by Joseph Nassise

A Jeremiah Hunt Supernatual Thriller

New Orleans was nearly the death of Jeremiah Hunt, between a too-close brush with the FBI and a chilling, soul-searing journey through the realm of the dead that culminated with a do-or-die confrontation with Death himself. But now Hunt is back and on the run in Watcher of the Dark.

But when he performs an arcane ritual to reclaim the soul of the magically gifted, beautiful woman who once saved him, he must flee the law once again, to Los Angeles, city of angels, a temporary sanctuary.

In L.A., he has to contend with Carlos Fuentes, who sees in Hunt a means to obtain the mystical key that would open the gates of Hell. Fuentes knows Hunt’s weakness—his loyalty to the woman he loves, and to another “gifted” friend—and uses the real threat of torturing them as a way to get Hunt to help complete his dread quest.
Hunt has learned a lot since his life was irrevocably hijacked by fate months ago. But when his friends are threatened by the supernatural predator known as the Preacher, Hunt knows that all his newfound experience and ability will go for naught unless he can keep both the Preacher and Fuentes at bay long enough for him to somehow find a way to free his friends from mortal peril.

Joseph Nassise delivers another thrilling novel in his dark, urban fantasy series, the Jeremiah Hunt Chronicle.

Watcher of the Dark, by Joseph Nassise, releases on November 19th.

  • We’ve shared quite a few cosplay posts from New York Comic-Con, but we never caught a glimpse of this costume, possibly the best we’ve ever seen. It’s even better in video format.
  • October 15th was Ada Lovelace Day! To celebrate, Professor Fausto-Sterling and Brown University hosted a Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon, where people edit Wikipedia articles to reflect the contributions of women to science. This is something that should happen every day!
  • We can’t wait for the 50th Anniversary Doctor Who special! Check out new set photos over at Tor.com, plus details about the party…at Buckingham Palace.
  • Speaking of great works of fiction…Tor.com is releasing an anthology of 21 of the best stories they’ve published. Staffer Carl explains why you should read them.

  • This must have taken a massive amount of time, and it looks like it was entirely worth it. Helm’s Deep, in Lego. Awesome, in the truest sense of the word.
