I can’t pinpoint it exactly, but I’m loving the cover for Scott Lynch’s The Republic of Thieves. I think it’s the costumes – they are fabulous! This is only one of many fabulous covers that have been popping up. For all the new covers, I’ve added them to the FB album.

I love finding parodies on childrens novels and io9 is showing off a fabulous rendition. Awhile back, they posted a few what ifs science fiction children’s books and artist Julia Yu was so inspired that she illustrated an entire novel of Goodnight Dune. This is a must for any fantasy fans and I really can’t wait to see it in print form.

I’ve seen the cage fights before, but I never clicked. Until today. I am now hooked. Suvudu does this cage fights between two characters, and while I thought it was just a poll, there’s actually a lot more to it. Like an actual scenario. The one that caught my attention was Eric Northman vs Jacoc Black. Yeah, my vote is on Eric. I do so love Eric’s last line.
Are you a fan of HP Lovecraft? Then I would definitely head over to Tor.com and grovel a little before Ruth X.

The ebook contains all original stories that were penned by Lovecraft between 1917 and 1935. For a complete look at all the titles, check out the table of contents.

Ilona Andrews has posted a snippet from a work in progress that currently doesn’t have a title. All we’re told is that it will eventually be released as an ebook and I’m thinking not a Kate Daniels story.
