"Autumn is the mellower season"

Apologies for being quiet of late. I've been wrestling with pneumonia, but now I'm on the mend in time to enjoy some truly beautiful fall weather. I have a few links to share...

Articles

* From Donald Liebenson at The Huffington Post: "Yes, Virginia, There is a Star Wars Holiday Special."

* From Charlie Jane Anders at io9: "Blame Time Travel For Kirk's Scarred Psyche."

* From Sci Fi Wire: "South Park's 7 Awesomest Sci-Fi Moments." (And yes, I caught this past week's episode with the Goth kids vs. the Vampire kids: priceless.)

* Don't forget about The Year of Readers 2009!


Interviews

* To the Best of Our Knowledge devotes an episode to "The Future of Science Fiction," in which author George R.R. Martin talks about science fiction, fantasy, storytelling and literature; author Ursula K. Le Guin comments on science fiction as a literature of ideas; scholar S.T. Joshi discusses H.P. Lovecraft; and scholar Istvan Csicsery-Ronay, Jr. discusses his new book The Seven Beauties of Science Fiction.


Trailers
(I'm sure everyone's seen these trailers by now, but I feel compelled to share them anyway, as I'm quite looking forward to these films.)

* Coraline

* Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

* Star Trek XI


Gratuitous YouTube Video - Just because it makes me happy: "Robots (The Humans Are Dead)" by Flight of the Conchords. Binary solo!



"Youth is like spring, an over praised season more remarkable for
biting winds than genial breezes. Autumn is the mellower season,
and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits."

- Samuel Butler
