Fringe/Walter/Strawberry death

On the Fringe

The forthcoming Smart Pop book Fringe Science: Parallel Universes, White Tulips, and Mad Scientists, dedicated to the series Fringe, now has cover art! (I'm writing an essay for this collection now.) I'm very happy to see that TV Guide is reporting that Fringe has a good chance of renewal for next season.

I have a few links to share:

* Two great websites and fannish resources, The John Castle Gallery and CI5 Addict, are now accepting donations (via a donation button at the bottom of each site) to help cover their hosting fees. The buttons will disappear once the fees have been met. If you enjoy these sites, please consider helping out!

* From SFSignal: "The All-Encompassing Machinery: Dystopia in the 21st Century."

* From Morgan Dempsey at Inkpunks: "Why I Like YA SFF."

* Happy early birthday wishes to firiath and alicia_stardust. May you both enjoy many happy returns of the day!

The historian in me gets quite a laugh from this (and, for that matter, you can never have too much Martin Freeman)...
