The Hunger Games: What Happens Next

A few days ago Scholastic released the cover of the new Hunger Games novel on its blog. It looks like this:

The Hunger Games, as you may know, is a big-time YA series about a girl named KatnipKatniss who lives in a future dystopia where every year the ruling caste forces a bunch of kids to fight each other in an arena. Twenty-four …

Things I Didn’t Know Existed Until Today: Defendor

I finally got around to watching “Zombieland” over the weekend and for whatever reason I watched the trailers that preceded the actual movie. One of them happened to be a trailer for Woody Harrelson’s upcoming Canadian superhero flick “Defendor.”

It doesn’t appear that Peter Stebbings’ character is based on an existing …

Dubai … With Star Wars

At first, it’s difficult to believe that only the characters in these photos were the work of any special effect-meddling.

Photographer Cédric Delsaux took his photos of the construction of super-city Dubai and threaded them with some of our most sacred Star Wars images. The result: a beautiful fit that really puts into …

Best Fantasy Books Ever, Round #137

I went to Boskone last weekend. It’s my “local” con, since I grew up in Lexington (which is near Boston), and my parents still live in Cambridge. So that was a good reason to go. Also the con organizers invited me. That was another good reason. It’s always nice to be invited.

Planet of the Apes Reboot: Why No News is Good News

Another week, still no Planet of the Apes news.

New Comics for 2/17/10

It’s a week after the Snowpacolypse and we here in NYC are still paying the price. My local comic shop, Midtown Comics, is going to be a day late on new comics as a result of the storm. Once again I must suffer through till Thursday. It’s still going to be a big week, picking my Pulls of the Week is going to be difficult tomorrow. I will …

The Techland Show: The Prodigal Son Has Returned

I’m happy to report that Lev has returned from book leave! What a joyous occasion for me. Not to discredit Steve or Allie, but I’ve missed Lev. We’re like the Three Amigos minus the third Amigo, you know?

I’m not entirely sure which episode this is but I’m being told that it’s episode number 11.

Anyway, Lev chats about …
