World Wide Wednesday is back from hiatus. I hope you all were able to survive the black emptiness that was Wednesday for a few weeks. Let us not ever speak of those dark days again. Turn towards the future and be filled with linking goodness. As always, 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:

1) Map of Abercrombie’s First Law series: Aidan Moher over at A Dribble of Ink picked up on this gem. This looks very good.  Now I can geographically pinpoint the location were Abercrombie broke my soul.

2) Some book written by some dude to be released some time soon: It’s the most anticipated fantasy release to date.Yes, it’s finally arriving. 100% for sure guaranteed yes… probably.

3) Dune Coloring Book: Somewhat disturbing.

4) 33 years since Hitchhiker’s Guide invaded our airwaves: I read the Hitchhiker’s guide when I was in high school, and I used to watch the BBC TV program also. Very rarely has a work had such an impact across so many mediums. Douglas Adams was a genius and left us way too soon.

5) The Next Big Author Contest: A nice little contest for you writers out there.

6) Huge Malazan Giveaway: Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist has a massive Malazan giveaway, be sure to enter.
