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.
Deviant Art user (and Whovian!) crazyfoalrus built his own TARDIS control room in his home. This is absolutely insane, and I desperately want one in my apartment.
Mary Robinette Kowal, the author of Shades of Milk and Honey and Glamour in Glass, is auctioning off a manuscript of her next novel, Without a Summer, for Hurricane Sandy relief. Check it out, and donate to a good cause. A lot of folks up here still need help.
It’s time to start voting for your favorite books of 2012! Start with the Goodreads Choice Awards, a list of great 2012 titles to choose among, including several Tor titles, like Scalzi’s Redshirts and Card’s Shadows in Flight.
Also announced are the nominees for RT Book Reviews Reviewers’ Choice Awards. In the science fiction category, we have Scalzi’s Redshirts; in fantasy, Tina Connolly’s Ironskin and Mary Robinette Kowal’s Glamour in Glass; and in epic fantasy, Elizabeth Bear’s Range of Ghosts. Congratulations to all the authors nominated!
Publisher Tom Doherty began working with Harriet McDougal, Robert Jordan’s widow and editor, more than forty years ago. Many people at Tor have worked with the series for more than twenty years. Still others have watched Brandon Sanderson grow from unknown writer to the amazing talent that he is today. And readers of all ages, who deserve our unending thanks, have grown up with these books and shared them with others.
Congratulations to Team Jordan and everyone involved!
The piece features great quotes from Harriet McDougal (“I do think Brandon Sanderson has a natural feeling for the ethical and moral issues of life.”) and the incomparable Brandon Sanderson (“Robert Jordan’s material ‘was like stepping into Da Vinci’s workshop after he just walked off … I know I can’t replace him. The person who should have written this book was Robert Jordan. He was the greatest fantasy writer of my generation.”)
