  • Connie Willis is answering questions about Blackout and All Clear over at
  • Daryl Gregory will be writing a new Planet of the Apes comic book story, and will also be writing an essay on Philip K. Dick for Issue #16 of the adaptation of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
  • Greg Egan has released a video trailer for the first volume of his Orthogonal trilogy. The Clockwork Rocket will be available in July 2011. See what space travel could look like in a universe where the speed of light is not constant!
  • Ursula K. LeGuin, interviewed by the BBC.
  • In our sister genre, historical fiction, Cecelia Holland points out that she has not yet seen a single historical novel about the Tudors on the to-be-published lists for 2011. It would be a shocking departure for the field–can anyone point out a counter-example?
  • Continuing the discussion of mythpunk, Strange Horizons has a Roundtable on the topic, and Niall Harrison rates several stories on “Myth-y” and “Punk-y” axes.
  • At Torque Control, Shana Worthen reminds us that there will be a discussion this month on Gwenyth Jones’ Bold as Love.
  • In the same spirit, Abigail Nussbaum has been reading the sf of Mary Gentle.
  • Much controversy ensues when Bitch Magazine removes Tender Morsels, Sisters Red, and Living Dead Girl from their 100 YA Books for the Feminist Reader list. Ellen Klages, Justine Larbalestier, Maureen Johnson, and Scott Westerfeld all weigh in in the comments thread.
  • NASA’s Kepler mission is already bearing fruit, showing that there are at least 1200 exoplanets in our observable local space neighborhood. The chance of none of them having life has got to be close to zero.
