Wired Magazine has posted their Top 100 Quotes Every Geek Should Know and I have to say, some of them are good. And since I love quotes (I really do), here are a few of them.
4. “Spock. This child is about to wipe out every living thing on Earth. Now, what do you suggest we do….spank it?” — Dr. McCoy, Star Trek: The Motion Picture
10. “If I’m not back in five minutes, just wait longer.” —Ace Ventura, Ace Ventura, Pet Detective
SciFi Guy has the cover and blurb for a new book that has caught my eye. I’ll be honest, I can’t remember the first novel in this series, Wolfbreed, but the cover for Wolf’s Cross by S.A. Swann is catching my eye. Wolf’s Cross will be released July 27th.
Leanna Renee Hieber has posted a few excerpts for her upcoming novel, The Darkly Luminous Fight for Persephone Parker, the second in her Strangely Beautiful series.
Patricia Briggs has a treat for her forum members. She’s posted a portion of the first chapter for the next Mercy Thompson novel, Silver Borne.

If you haven’t had enough of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, then guess what…io9 reports that Quirk books will be releasing a prequel titled Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls. There isn’t any news on when it will be released, but I’m going to go with sometime this year.
