Happy Sunday!

Hello and happy Sunday, my friends!

Good news all around...

1. Earlier I failed to post about my latest "Looking Back on Genre History" segment for StarShipSofa, which is a tribute to the great author John Christopher, who died in February 2012. You can listen or download it here. An updated list of all of my podcast appearances (with links) is available here.

2. This mashup of Sherlock and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. put a big grin on my face.

3. So many upcoming birthdays! Happy early birthday wishes to angelinehawkes, idwoman, pseudoanorexic, vyrdolak, lyria_theringer, and bistokidsfan77. May you all enjoy a wonderful day and a fantastic year to come.

4. I've accepted invitations to speak this fall at The McConnell Center at the University of Louisville and next spring at StellarCon 37. My updated speaking schedule is here.

5. Fringe has been renewed for a fifth and final season.

And there's already a trailer... Feel the chills?

Fringe is a remarkably creative series that has set the bar as one of television’s most imaginative dramas... Bringing it back for a final 13 allows us to provide the climactic conclusion that its passionate and loyal fans deserve. The amazing work the producers, writers and the incredibly talented cast and crew have delivered the last four seasons has literally been out of this world. Although the end is bittersweet, it’s going to be a very exciting final chapter.”
