Summer conventions are in full swing, and there is plenty of news being thrown around. I managed to wrangle in a few of the more interesting articles for your consumption. 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) Jim Butcher Interviews Patrick Rothfuss: Is this some sick joke Suvudu is playing on me? Get out of my head. My fanboy level nearly reached critical mass when I spotted this.

2) Lev Grossman Interview at the Onion AV Club: Lev gives good interview. A very intelligent guy, and always a pleasure to hear from.

3) 10 Places to Buy SFF Art: Io9 put together a handy list of places you can buy genre art.

4) The Cruelest Hoax: There are instances when I would support reimplementing medieval justice. This is one of them.

5) World War Z Set Photos: A little sneak peak at the set of World War Z.

6) Vonnegut Library Gets Around Stupid School that Banned Slaughterhouse 5: This makes me proud to live in Indiana where the fairly new Vonnegut Library is located.

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.

  1. The Vonnegut Library story has inspired me to track down the library online and make a donation to them.

  2. That’s a great Lev Grossman interview.

  3. Am I missing something or is the cruel hoax supposed to be to a bad link?

  4. Gosh-darn it! I was one of the six people in the world who didn’t like The Magicians, and I wasn’t going to read the sequel. So I read that interview and now I want to read it. Thanks a lot, you guys!

  5. I’m also one of the six–or it’s more like I was meh about it. But I may have to give the sequel a shot…

  6. Cruel hoax link fixed….I’m not sure what happen, but what a lovely bit of irony.

  7. Gosh-darn it bis! I fully agree with you, Marion!
