WWW: February 22, 2012

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 in the comment section below. Let’s get started:

1) Nebula Nominees Announced: A few surprises found a way into the nominees list.

2) Sexiest Characters in SFF: This kind of thing is usually below my threshold for “news,” but it’s a slow news week… so sue me.

3) New Isaac Asimov T-Shirt: The t-shirt is hideous. I just wanted an excuse to put Asimov’s on WWW.

4) Fan-made Superman Posters: Fans make up for the official poster.

5) Mass Effect is the Most Important SF Universe: I’m sure most of you have not played the game called Mass Effect. You are missing out. Mass Effect 2 is easily the greatest SF game I have ever played. The Mass Effect story is as compelling as some of the best SF novels I have read.

6) Obituary: SFF author Ardath Mayhar died on February 1 at the age of 81. In 2008, the Science Fiction Writers of America named her as their author emeritus.

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.
