WWW: November 23, 2011

I mixed it up a bit this week and culled from some sources we don’t usually see on WWW. Hope you all enjoy. 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) Anne McCaffrey Dies at age 85: Some of the biggest and saddest news we’ve had on WWW. Even if you’re not a fan, her impact on fantasy literature is undeniable. She will be missed by many.

2) Aurora Award Winners: A great selection of awards from the Canadian SF and Fantasy Association.

3) Angry Robot Now Has Strange Chemistry: Strange Chemistry will be Angry Robot’s Young Adult imprint, but that’s not the best part. This new imprint will be helmed by the WWW queen herself, Amanda Rutter. Congratulations, Amanda! I hope this starts a trend of WWW writers getting awesome jobs in publishing.

4) The End of Borders and the Future of Books: An interesting article about what went wrong with Borders.

5) Middle Earth Beer: Ah, the Beer Advocate forums, how I miss thee.

6) Penguin Pulls Library E-Books Over Security: As the publishing industry kicks and screams into the digital age, we’ll be seeing headlines like this off and on for years to come.

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.
