It’s been a busy week and there were plenty of news items to pick from. I narrowed it down to my usual handful of the best ones. Thanks again for stopping by. In the coming weeks, if you find something interesting you think everyone should read, drop me a line via the contact form and let me know, or just post it below. Let’s get started:

It’s going to be a sort of SFF travel guide. Underland Press hopes to get your input on what worlds it should include.

2) Locus Awards 2011: A fine looking list of award winning fiction. The Locus Awards always have a stellar list.

3) Lego Mordor: Legos + The Dark Lord Sauron = Awesome

4) The Strange Instruments that Make the Creepy Noises in your Favorite Movies: Io9 has compiled a nice list of the unusual instruments in SF movies and shows. It’s pretty cool to see the machine behind those familiar noises.

5) Holy Crap!: Sasha by Joel Shepherd is currently free on Kindle. I’ve been told by many people that this series is veryfantasy book reviews science fiction book reviews good. Has Pyr actually published anything that was bad?

6) Martin H. Greenberg Dies at Age 70: Known in the industry as the Green Bay Packager for the hundreds of anthologies he helped put together. An amazing contributor to SFF publishing. He will be sorely missed.

    Sasha (and the entire series) are pretty excellent reads, and since I own a physical copy of Sasha but digital versions of the rest, this is good news for me!

  2. I downloaded Sasha a little while ago. I also hear that it’s supposed to be good. Here’s hoping!

  3. Thanks for the link to free Sasha! Stefan really liked this series, so I’ve been planning to read it.

  4. Oh, and I nominated my favorite fantasy world: Mythago Wood.
