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.
- The first full Guardians of the Galaxy trailer is here!
- This Throwback Thursday, we revisit a 2008 interview with David Weber. Like a Mighty Army, the seventh book in the Safehold series, published this week.
- Is Die Hard a fairy tale? Max Gladstone, the author of Two Serpents Rise, thinks so.
- Disney Princesses as the women of Game of Thrones. Because why not? My favorite is definitely Merida as Ygritte.
- Congratulations to debut author S. M. Wheeler, whose novel Sea Change was named to the 2013 James Tiptree, Jr. Award Honor List.
- April can’t get here soon enough. There’s another trailer for Game of Thrones.
