The authors over at The Enchanted Inkpot offer tributes to Diana Wynne Jones.
Grace Lin is celebrating the paperback release of Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by giving away to eight people the free print of their choice from her etsy shop! Here's the one I would like:
My best friend in seventh grade had a series of recurring dreams in which Anne MacCaffery's Dragon Riders of Pern came to the big screen, with dead chickens (painted appropriately, if such a thing can be said of a dead chicken) being used for the fire lizards. That was long, long ago---and now her dream (sans chickens) is becoming a reality-- the dragons are actually coming to the big screen!
And finally, Peter Jackson has posted video diary entries from
The Hobbit on his facebook page (and you can watch it here at Suvudo)
