I am off to take part in RavenCon!

Happy early birthday to izhilzha! May you enjoy a fantastic day and wonderful year to come.


I'll leave you with these...

First, in anticipation of the soon-to-be-released The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún by J.R.R. Tolkien, a teaser:




And second, in anticipation of the forthcoming film Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the newest trailer:




And last but not least, your moment of zen: the Nazgul vs. the Labradoodle.


“Everything is becoming science fiction. From the margins of an almost invisible literature has sprung the intact reality of the 20th century.”
- J.G. Ballard

I'm glad you liked it. I thought so, too!

It's very sad to see this generation of SF greats passing away.

Man, I didn't even like HBP that much, but the trailer gave me goosebumps.

Doesn't it look great? They've set such a great tone with this. I can't wait!

You bet! I'm so glad you liked it, too. The image of the Labradoodle bringing the Ring back to Sam so he could throw it again cracked me up.

Brian Cox reading S&G! Ooooo! Must have!

I realized last week, that HP opens the day Mythcon starts! Waa! However, I'm thinking of getting up a party of Mythies to go see it in Westwood on the Monday afternoon.

I know! They couldn't have picked a better narrator. I can't wait to hear him read this.

It's just been announced that the Half-Blood Prince film is actually going to debut on July 15 instead of July 17. So that solves the MythCon conflict. Of course, it would be extra fun to see it with a group of Mythies. ;)

That cracked me up - especially the image of the Labradoodle playing fetch with Sam!

Forget the Nazgul and the Labradoodle and send Cujo instead. Mwahahahaha! Oh wait, then the hobbits would stand no chance. At least the lthe labradoodle will just want to play with the Ring. ;)

Oooh, a "new" Tolkien book! Thanks for the heads up. I'll be looking for that one.

Cujo! LOL! Now that would've made for a short book and film. ;)

I'm really excited about The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún!
