Non-English sites: This German-language news webzine covers books, TV, and cinema, and is updated continuously from day to day. Many news items are familiar if you already browse Locus Online and Sci-Fi Wire, but news from the continent is featured prominently, and you can always view the site through Babelfish for amusing and mostly understandable results, e.g.

" Scream 3 ": 35. Million dollar in 3 days!
