Oh look it’s the middle of the week, time for another World Wide Wednesday. Kind of a slow news week, but I managed to find a few choice articles for your consumption. I also recommend you take a close look at the Author Chum section since I found some fascinating articles dealing with the individual authors listed there. 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:

2) Thai Buddhist Temple with Fantasy Twist: A fantastically inspired temple in Chang Rai, Thailand. I’ve been to a few Thai temples and they always amaze me with their detail. The next time I’m back in the northern sections, I will make sure to visit this one.

3) Men in prison love science fiction and fantasy…especially Twilight: Ummm… ok. That’s kind of creepy.

4) Ron Howard you are losing me: Shawn speaks his mind about some disappointing developments in the upcoming Dark Tower movie.

5) A truly graphic adventure: the 25-year rise and fall of a beloved genre: Arzs writes a nice article on one of my favorite genres in gaming. Adventure games were also my introduction to Terry Pratchett‘s Discworld.

6) Smart Self-Publishing: How to Get Published Without Getting Scammed: If you are thinking about self-publishing, then you should read through this article. It’s filled with some solid advice and resources.

7) Steve the Mortal is Stupid: This was “discovered” by a friend of mine. It’s about a fairy who spends its time tormenting a mortal and then blogging about it.

JUSTIN BLAZIER (on FanLit’s staff September 2009 – September 2012) Like many fantasy enthusiasts, Justin cut his teeth on Tolkien. Due to lack of space, his small public library would often give him their donated SFF books. Justin lives in a small home near the river with his wife, their baby daughter, and Norman, a mildly smelly dog. He doesn’t have much time for reviewing anymore, but he still shows up here occasionally to let us know how he feels about stuff.

  1. I love all the Alices!

    When I was a kid I had no idea what pinafores were, or why they were used, and I always wondered why she wore an apron!
