This week we have Christopher Tolkien blasting the LOTR films, Comic-Con reports, and a little about Apocalyptic YA. 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:

1) Interview with Christopher Tolkien: Some surprises in here, or maybe not if you are familiar with C. Tolkien’s feelings towards the film adaptions of his father’s work.

2) Lou Anders Reports from Comic-Con: Lou Anders the Hugo Award Winner and Editorial Director at the much loved Pyr Books reports on San Diego Comic-Con.

3) Classic Sci-Fi Novels Get Futuristic Enhancements From Library of America: Library of America will re-publish 9 classics. This will be a nice set to own for any Bibliophile.

4) The Extras Get a Life: New York Times profiles John Scalzi and his newest work, Redshirts.

5) When Did “Science Fiction” and “Apocalypse” Become Interchangeable?: Guy Stewart laments the apocalyptic trend taking over Young Adult Science Fiction.

JUSTIN BLAZIER retired from FanLit in September 2012 after entertaining us for 3 years. 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.
